Detailed Overview

The LX8000 stands apart from the crowd due to its lateral motion. This side-to-side exercising increases your caloric burn and also engages more muscles in the lower region of the body than ever before. You will notice an increase in hip activity and overall strength build. The stepping motion is also still effective with this unit, as you build endurance and reap the rewards of a standard elliptical machine with the added boost of directional change whenever you want it.

Our Least Favorite Features

A few downsides to the Octane LX8000:
