Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in innovative fitness equipment, announced that Octane Fitness is debuting the MT8000, an addition to the popular Max Trainer category, along with the new xRide seated elliptical machines. The new products will get their first UK unveiling at the Octane Fitness stand at the Elevate trade show on the 8th – 9th May.
“The recently launched MTX Max has proven popular as a HIIT workout and the new MT8000 Max gives gyms another dynamic, total-body option for their cardio space,” said Neil Campbell, General Manager of Octane Fitness UK Ltd. “Additionally, based on our top-selling xR6000 xRide seated elliptical, we also are launching the new xR6000S model with a swivel seat. This allows for all the current wide range of beginner to high fitness users and makes it even more accessible for the older, de-conditioned, injured and GP Referral users too.”
Fuelling the Cardio Floor
While the original Max Trainer® machine is ideal for HIIT in functional areas and small group training, the MT8000 is a premium choice for HIIT or steady-state workouts on the cardio floor. Simple to use for individuals of varying fitness levels, it provides total-body, low-impact routines and delivers virtually unlimited resistance via a fan and magnetic brake that responds quickly to exercisers’ efforts. MultiGrip handlebars offer custom comfort, with fingertip control adjustments that maximise convenience.
Equipped with Octane’s 10-inch LCD touchscreen smart console, the premium MT8000 offers a new, dynamic calorie meter, which displays instant details on calories burned per minute and the user’s best output, thereby encouraging greater effort. Exercisers can select from multiple different feedback screens to customise their motivation. Plus, the console features internet access and several entertainment choices.
The MT8000 includes the challenging Max 14 Interval workout, a 14-minute rigorous session that maximises effectiveness and efficiency, along with the new Floors program that builds endurance as users climb the Empire State Building, once or multiple times, from 100-1000 floors. Also included among the 14 workouts are Octane’s advanced 30:30 Interval and MMA regimens.
The machine’s compact footprint makes it easy to fit in cardio areas, and clubs can take advantage of asset management technology to evaluate usage, equipment placement and preventative maintenance needs. The MT8000 machine will be available in late 2019.
Refining Recumbent Exercise
Extending the innovative xRide® recumbent elliptical line, the new xR6000S is ideal for anyone who wants to take on seated total-body, low-impact workouts, from beginners, to those undergoing rebab, to seniors and committed exercisers. Among its features:
- New step-through, open design
- +/-210-degree swivel seat
- Oversized side platforms
- Active Seat Position: multiple custom seat height adjustments and independent seat tilt positions
- 14 programs and 30 resistance levels
- Upper/lower-body isolation
Like every xRide recumbent elliptical, the xR6000S features PowerStroke technology, which facilitates a longer elliptical motion, forward and backward, to challenge more muscles for more productive workouts. The machine can accommodate a smart or standard console, as well as a PVS television or wireless 900 Mhz.
Octane Fitness also has refined its original xR6000 xRide recumbent elliptical model based on feedback from years in the field. This top-selling model now features a new, step-through design; an oversized platform; multiple seat height adjustments and independent seat tilt positions. To make the machine more accessible, the handlebar attachment points were moved from the rear to the front of the machine, and the foundational platform enlarged for ease of entry and exit. Plus, the MultiGrip handles have been adjusted for even more natural alignment and comfort.
