Overall Rating


Pros The Octane XR6000 has been shown to burn more calories and tone isolated muscle groups more effectively than bikes, rowers and other seated fitness units. This model in particular is quite comfortable with multiple adjustments and customizations, along with numerous programs to keep you motivated and challenged.
Cons Octane elliptical machines, especially these seated ones, are truly top-notch. Unfortunately, that just does not seem to jive with a reasonable price tag. This machine is another positive example of “you get what you pay for,” – but you need to be able to afford it first! The warranty is also weak considering the features and price.
Summary The Octane XR6000 includes so many program options and customizable workouts that your inner fitness guru is sure to cry out with joy. The XR6000 is well known to outperform any other seated unit, burning more calories and meeting individual goals set by your various family members. This machine includes an active seat position that promotes proper posture and positioning to make your workouts more effective and comfortable. It also comes with multi-grip handlebars that change position to focus on different target muscle groups.
