Pros: Quiet, stable; great workout!
Cons: Smelled like burning during first use.
I've has my Octane elliptical for several months now and have been thrilled. I did a lot of research and looked at a lot of different brands (in addition to the Life Fitness and Precor I use at the gym) and I chose this one for the stability, small footprint, and ergonomics. The sales guy at All About Fitness also recommended it highly.
The Octane Fitness website is full of great information, and I sent some questions to their support center and received a thorough, friendly, comprehensive and timely response.
I couldn't recommend this product or this company more strongly!
