Workout Smarter with SmartLink™
5月 3, 2018
While most exercisers understand the value of working out harder, longer or more often, they don’t always know how to work out smarter. Exercising smarter doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to endure lengthy grueling sweat sessions day after day, week after week.
It means creating a workout plan that is purposefully designed and progressed to get you to your goals. Working out smarter encompasses routines that are challenging, motivating and rewarding – all based on the results you seek and the realistic commitment you can make.
Sounds like you might need to hire a trainer to develop a smart regimen, right? Not necessarily. With today’s technology, you can immediately access exercise intelligence via apps, web sites, streaming workouts, online programs and more. If you own an Octane Fitness machine, you get a bonus! Take advantage of the free SmartLink app, available for iOS or Android devices*.
Designed to function like a virtual personal trainer, SmartLink wirelessly connects to and controls your Octane machine from your mobile phone (iOS only, not compatible with Android phones) or tablet. It works with the Q37xi, Q47xi, xR6i, ZR7 and ZR8 home models.

However, incorporating some new dishes can boost interest at mealtime, help banish the same-o, same-o menu items and potentially keep you from relying on carryout again.
We’ve done some legwork for you, and here share just a sampling of our favorite fresh spring recipes for dinner, lunch or leftovers to keep your taste buds happy. Not only delicious, they’re healthy as well. Happy eating!
