QUICK REVIEW

Pros The Octane PRO3700 features a variety of rigorous workouts that will make you sweat and yield visible results. Enjoy an adjustable stride length, which allows for the whole family to share use of this dynamic machine, while also experiencing the ultimate in comfort and cutting-edge technology.
Cons As one of the best machines available in the elliptical market, it understandably does not come with the most modest price tag. This machine is also massive, so you should have a fair bit of space available in your home gym prior to purchasing.
Summary The Octane PRO3700 is jam-packed with special features and a great console that will lead you in challenging workouts that yield real, visible results. Choose from two different console options, with the more advanced PRO3700 Touch featuring a touch screen, instructional videos and an interactive Booster view. You can enjoy a three-speed cooling fan on both models, as well as wireless heart rate monitoring.

Octane PRO 3700 Elliptical Detailed Overview

As the first unit in the third generation of Octane’s elliptical machines, the PRO3700 was the first to introduce “converging path” handlebars. These greatly improve overall ergonomics for the ultimate in comfort and safety from strain and injury during an especially intense workout session. This machine also has an adjustable lower body, with a stride length starting at 20.5″ and stretching out to a full 24″. As this was initially designed to be a commercial machine, it is rather large and sophisticated for home use, and yet it is still highly favored by many who truly value fitness and being personally challenged from the comfort of home.

Our Least Favorite Features

A few downsides to the Octane PRO3700:

  • You might have to purchase additional accessories to get all advertised features you’re excited about.
  • The more expensive console offers vastly different features than the standard.
  • This is a massive machine – it was originally designed for commercial use, so it is far from compact.
