The top-of-the-line Octane Fitness Q47xi elliptical machine delivers health club quality form, function, and results to your home gym. The Q47xi is one of the most advanced and technologically superior ellipticals made.

Designed to help you commit to and maintain a fitter lifestyle, they are built to last and perform exceptionally. With this in mind, the Q47xi comes with SmartStride, CROSS CiRCUIT, which is the ability to interact with your tablet via the Octane Fitness app, and a slew of challenging workouts!

Octane’s trademark Workout Boosters, including X-Mode, GluteKicker, and ArmBlaster, add cross-training with various commands every few minutes to keep the heart pumping and muscles pushing. These add variety, motivation, and productive intervals. And higher intensity leads to better results and efficient, effective workouts that keep users coming back again and again.

The 30:30 program is an innovative new workout available exclusively on Octane Fitness elliptical machines. It motivates and challenges exercisers of all abilities. The 30:30 interval program was designed by Paul Robbins of Athletes’ Performance to increase cardiovascular performance for elite athletes, but works equally well for all exercisers.

The top of the line Nautilus E618 Elliptical Trainer is a heavy-duty fully-featured elliptical. The top model from Nautilus. It can handle up to 350 lb — user weight. Specifically, upgraded features include a Built-in fan, built-in speakers for your iPod or MP3 Player. The reading rack can even accommodate an iPad or tablet. Since this model has two LCDs, one will still be visible if reading a book or using a tablet.

Also, the new Multi-position handlebars have integrated incline and resistance controls. This model comes fully loaded, yet is cheaper than higher priced Ellipticals. This model runs smooth and quiet, given its massive 30lb flywheel. The Nautilus E618 has magnetic brake resistance for smooth, reliable, and quiet operation and has a 22-inch stride.

This model has some upgraded features that the E614 model does not have, such as powered incline, more resistance levels, more programs, a backlit screen, Bluetooth, and telemetric wireless heart monitoring.

The SpaceSaver SE9i is the top elliptical trainer in the NordicTrack SpaceSaver Series. It shares many performance specs with the SE7i, but it has advanced electronics and carries a much more extended warranty. The new SE9i is distinguished by its 7″ touchscreen, which is high definition and ready for browsing the web while exercise stats are in the background.

It comes with a more advanced console, more workout programs, it’s already iFit enabled, and has Bluetooth connectivity. Also bringing in onboard entertainment potential are a tablet computer shelf and a set of 3″ iPod-compatible console speakers. Other key specs are wireless heart rate monitoring, an 18″ stride, an 18-pound flywheel, and a power incline of up to 10 degrees.

SpaceSaver Series ellipticals have a rear-drive design, and rear drive ellipticals are known for their natural-feeling strides and natural balance during exercise. The size of a rear-drive elliptical can be a drawback, but obviously, the SpaceSaver SE9i is a space-conscious model. You can fold it vertically for everyday storage after workouts (and it also has wheels to make it easier to move).

The Precor AMT 835 Adaptive Motion Trainer is a low-impact alternative to standard elliptical trainers. It lets trainees benefit from Precor’s award-winning biomechanics no matter what their natural stride might be.
