Octane LateralX Elliptical Detailed Overview

Upgrade your home gym or commercial fitness center with the Octane LateralX, a world-class elliptical trainer with an exceptional range of motion. This unique fitness machine allows forward, backward and side-to-side exercise for realistic sports training and extraordinary results. Like all Octane fitness machines, the LateralX is designed for zero-impact exercise too… So overall, it lets you train your whole body at any intensity level, but with minimal chance of exercise-related discomfort or injury.

One option is to use the LateralX elliptical with standard forward or reverse pedaling. The unique option is to move side-to-side. When you move laterally with more action in your hips, your body burns about 25% more calories compared with standard elliptical striding. This advancement in cross training lets you manage your weight, build strength and gain endurance — all with low-impact and the freedom to change direction whenever you please.

Two consoles can be paired with the LateralX. The simpler display has an LED screen and pushbutton controls, and the LateralX Smart has a full-color touchscreen with video and Internet capabilities. An entertainment center with TV and wireless radio can be added too. Each console provides a variety of training programs for total-body workouts, and the LateralX Smart console has video coaching and Workout Booster programs with names like “ThighToner” and “QuadPower” help you focus on specific muscle groups.

Available as an add-on is Octane’s Cross Circuit Pro kit. These adjustable weights can add advanced cross training to your elliptical conditioning.

Our Least Favorite Feature

The Octane LateralX is a premium elliptical trainer and unlike any other on the market. It’s an outlier in terms of price but also in performance. While it can be used as a traditional elliptical with forward/backward striding, it brings the best value to the home of an athlete or other exercise enthusiast who will take advantage of the side-to-side motion as well.
