A Completely Different Machine
Octane Fitness’s new LateralX (LX8000) debuted March of 2012 at the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association Convention and Trade Show and has changed the way we view ellipticals, in fact the LateralX is almost a completely different machine!
What Sets the LateralX Appart
The LateralX offers smooth, 3D motion that goes from a vertical elliptical stepping motion to an active side-to-side motion that adjusts electronically. The machine’s total-body workouts utilize movement in three planes (front to back, side to side and rotational-see video below). The self-powered LateralX is also equipped with MultiGrip and Converging Path handlebars, digital contact heart rate sensors and a console fan.
In cardiovascular equipment everything moves in one plane, but that’s not true for movements in the real world. The LateralX prepares people better for everything, whether that is sports training, balance or increasing energy.
What This Great Elliptical Has to Offer
This low-impact elliptical and lateral motion offers customized, functional exercise that builds stamina, muscular endurance, coordination and balance. The LateralX offers 10 variable lateral width settings and studies indicate that the motion represents a 30% increase in hip abduction, hip adduction and knee extension over traditional ellipticals. With 30 resistance levels the LateralX helps everyone from athletes to beginning exercisers recruit more muscles.
The LateralX will be available for sale in September 2012
