This entry was posted on September 20, 2014.
When looking to have a great cardio workout that tones the legs without the sometimes harsh impact of the treadmill, many individuals turn to the elliptical machine. Whether sitting or standing, elliptical machines offer a low-impact exercise compared to treadmills; and most of these machines allow for an individual to swiftly alternate between speeds. The Octane series is a series of high-quality machines known for their superiority in elliptical workouts.
The Octane series xRide is the first and only line of seated elliptical machines to receive the seal of approval from Oprah’s personal trainer, Mr. Bob Greene. The xRide is the first seated elliptical that he believes offers a full cardio workout. What makes the difference is the superior design of the Octane machines. Rather than the traditional bicycle-style seat, the Octane’s seat causes the individual to take more of a standing position. This aids in the effectiveness of the exercise, engaging all parts of the body yet still offering the comfort of a seated, low-impact exercise experience.
The Octane xR6000 is one of the more advanced machines in the xRide fleet. It boasts several advanced features that add to a great cardio workout. The xR6000 offers customizable interval programs, constant output programs, heart rate-controlled programs, as well as the Octane 30:30 preset program. It also has Octane’s special workout booster that offers users a strength exercise in addition to the cardio workout they are currently engaged in. All of these elements come together for an energy-packed, high calorie-burning exercise. In fact, studies have shown that those exercising using this machine burn 23% more calories and use 343% more of their glutes.
The Octane xR6000 and its sister machines are powerful tools in effective cardio workouts. You can try these machines out for yourself, as well as other quality machines at your local Fitness Expo.
