Pros The versatility and multiple customizable options of the XT-ONE top the list of pros on this all-in-one machine by Octane. You can easily use this machine to walk, run, hike or climb by simply adjusting the stride, resistance, or stride length. The Workout Boosters and tons of built-in workout programs also add to the versatility of this machine. Choose from several “boosters” that are designed to target specific muscle groups for elite training without the need for a personal trainer!
Cons There are few cons for the XT-ONE since it is such a dynamic machine with so many options. First, the price tag can be a little shocking, but you get what you pay for. Other cons deal with the console options, with cons of their own depending on which console you go with. If you go with the Smart console, you get tech-savvy options but no self-powered option, and if you go with the Standard console, you sacrifice those advanced entertainment and fitness tracking options, but it does come with a self-powered option.
Summary As noted on our pros and cons list, the pros far outweigh the cons with the XT-ONE. It's the ultimate cross-training machine with tons of versatility that you won't even find on the hybrid trainers by other brands. However, if you want to purchase one of these machines, be prepared to make an investment as they can run from $7899 to $9198, depending on the console option that you choose. But again, you get what you pay for and that translates to premium durability and tons of options, from the console and beyond.

Octane Fitness XT One Elliptical Detailed Overview

The XT-ONE is brand new, just released this year as part of Octane’s innovative line of standing elliptical trainers. This model is one of their commercial grade machines, coming with two console options with varying price points. In addition, there are multiple add-on features to customize the XT-ONE to your precise needs, whether it’s for at-home use or on a gym floor.

The XT-ONE is an all-in-one machine that provides a varying range of movements that allow the user to use the machine for walking, running, hiking, or climbing. To achieve this variety of motion, users can easily adjust the incline, the stride, and the levels of resistance. There are 10 incline levels to choose from, an adjustable stride length that ranges from 20 to 28 inches, and 30 resistance levels. With so many ways to adjust your workout, it’s really easy to get individualized workout results and tons of variety, and it is truly the ultimate cross-training machine with the motto “one machine, infinite workouts.”

The two console options include the Standard console, retailing for $7,899, and the Smart console, retailing for $9198. The Standard console is equipped with a large LED display screen (actual dimensions are not disclosed) with integrated capacitive buttons, a 3-speed fan, and 23 workout apps. The Standard console is also the only console option that is self-powered. The Smart console is a step up from the Standard, equipped with a 10” glass capacitive screen touch screen display with wi-fi connectivity, 21 workout apps, video streaming/coaching, and a 3-speed cooling fan. Both consoles are equipped with several of Octane’s unique “workout boosters” that target specific muscle groups. On the Standard console, users can choose from the SmartStride, X-Mode(TM), or ArmBlaster workout. On the Smart console, in addition to the workout boosters, users can also access the CROSS CIRCUIT video coaching program that combines cardio and strength interval training to up the calorie burn even more! Both console options also support mobile device charging and come with digital contact heart rate sensors in addition to wireless compatibility.

Finally, the patented, unique converging path and multi-grip handlebars help you to target various muscles of the upper body while following the natural path of your arms when running or walking, and the cushioned, oversized pedals add to user comfort and stability. Other add-on options for this model include a Personal Viewing System (PVS) 15″ wide screen TV with integrated keypad controls or a wireless 900 MHz receiver that is compatible with CardioTheater, BroadcastVision, MyeEntertainment, and more.

The warranty for the XT-ONE covers 3 years on parts and 1 year on labor.

The Bottom Line

The XT-ONE by Octane is a powerhouse of a machine. It’s like having an entire gym in just one machine with the ability to run, walk, hike, or climb. You can even get the optional add-on feature that comes with weights and a side step to add even more options to your workouts. This commercial grade machine is ideal for residential or gym use, but it is pricey. However; when you consider the cost of three separate workout machines, the cost is well worth it!
