Octane Lateral X Review

Fitness Savvy took a look around and discovered 5 online reviews for the Octane Fitness Lateral X Elliptical Cross Trainer. Overall, this elliptical trainer scored a perfect 5 out of 5. Users were pleased with the versatility, the lateral width adjustments and amount of weight lost while using it.

PROS:
  • A versatile piece of equipment with plenty of room for adjustments.
  • Quiet when operating, almost silent.
  • One reviewer reports that it is still their favorite piece of gym equipment after a year of having it.
  • Perfect for preparing for skiing.
  • A fantastic piece of kit for both beginners and experienced athletes.

CONS:
  • It is rather expensive, but the quality shows.
  • Takes up a large space, so if you are planning on having it at home, you need to ensure you have enough room
  • Is pretty heavy, coming in at around 176 kg (388 lbs) – certainly not something you’d be sticking upstairs.

About the Octane LateralX Elliptical

The LateralX elliptical is a literal reinvention of cross-training. In addition, it can now be purchased for your home. The latest model from Octane Fitness boasts a streamlined design along with contemporary colors and a quieter motor.

Thanks to the 3D motion, you have the ability to move up and down, forwards and backward, and side to side – all on one machine. Combine this with the lateral adjustments, and you can be burning up to 27% more calories, as proven in scientific studies.

As an added bonus, it is self-powered so there is no need to worry about plugging it in.

Benefits, Features & Specs

  • Revolutionary lateral motion – utilizing varying planes of motion, you can build stamina, core stability, and muscular endurance. The design allows you to adjust to incorporate side-to-side motions and stepping movements to maximize your workout efforts with 10 lateral width adjustments.
  • Burn 27% more calories – according to a study conducted by Minnesota State University Mankato, going from latera width one to 10 resulted in a large increase in calorie expenditure as well as a 30% increase in outer and inner thigh work compared with traditional ellipticals.
  • Workout booster programs – Octane Fitness has rolled the boat out with a huge range of features, one of which is their workout booster programs. These programs are designed to keep the heart pumping and muscles engaged. Add variety to your workout with the GluteKicker (for the butt, we’d guess), the ArmBlaster (gonna go with arms for this one) and X-Mode (we’re stumped, but bet it’s AWESOME!) You’ll experience a greater intensity and more efficient workouts.
  • Quiet Motor – the almost silent motor makes working out at night or when the baby is sleeping ideal.
  • Transport wheels – move and re-position the machine with ease
  • 30 resistance levels – turn up the intensity and vary your workouts with this large range of resistance
  • Water bottle holder – while a staple of most cardio machines nowadays, it is still worth mentioning as sometimes some pretty expensive machines don’t have them – crazy, we know, right?
  • 3-speed console fan – keep cool while you work out thanks to this adjustable console fan.
  • Dimensions: 160 x 106 cm (L x W)
  • Maximum user weight –  400 lbs (181 kg).
  • Product weight – 388 lbs (176 kg).
  • Warranty – 3 years for parts, and 1 year for labor.
