Real Running Motion
Designed based on precise human biomechanics, Octane elliptical machines deliver supremely comfortable natural movement and flow, both forward and backward, without stress on the joints, which is ideal for all levels of exercisers.
The Q37 features close pedal spacing (only 1.8″), so your body is properly aligned from head to toe, thereby minimizing pressure on the lower back. Because the body feels so good during workouts, you are more likely to stay on longer and keep coming back.
The patented, one-of-the-kind Converging Path and MultiGrip handlebars better engage the upper body and fit every exerciser comfortably.
With MultiGrip handlebars, you can target different arm, chest and back muscles simply by changing your grip. The MultiGrip handlebars also feature contact heart rate sensors and fingertip controls to easily adjust the speed and resistance. And Converging Path handlebars follow the natural path of the arms when walking or running.
Significantly shorter than other premium elliptical machines or treadmills, the Q37 fits virtually anywhere at home. With its low step-up height and rear access, it’s simple for everyone to get on and off safely.
Ceiling height clearance is only 8” higher than the tallest user, so it can easily be placed in areas with low ceilings.
