This simple, straightforward elliptical provides exceptional performance and unbeatable value—and outstanding results.
The original Octane elliptical just keeps getting better with the Q35c cross trainer, which delivers the form, function, and results that fitness users want.
The Q35c's Body-Mapping Ergonomics motion delivers a challenging workout without stressing your joints.
The Q35c is built around Octane's signature Body-Mapping Ergonomics motion, an extremely comfortable and fluid drive system that flows naturally--both forward and backward--without stressing your joints. As a result, even people with knee and ankle trouble can exercise hard. Octane also added several workout boosters. Called GluteKicker, ArmBlaster, and X-Mode, the boosters challenge and motivate you to even greater levels of effort. The GluteKicker booster targets your glutes, hips, and thighs, with intense lower-body intervals to get your legs in tiptop shape. The ArmBlaster booster does the same for your upper body, rigorously toning your pecs, biceps, triceps, back, and more. And for full cross-training, try the X-Mode virtual personal trainer, which includes eight challenging prompts to get your entire body working.
The Q35c is designed to support your body throughout your workout. The machine's 20.5-inch stride length, for example, is comfortable whether you're striding forward or backward, while the 1.8-inch pedal spacing mimics human biomechanics while minimizing stress on your lower back. The machine also offers a low step-up height, making it effortless to get on and off--a great feature for older users or people recovering from injury.
Workout-wise, the Q35c offers 10 preset programs, 20 resistance levels, and four customizable "goal" programs. The "goal" programs are great for users who want to design their own routines, such as workouts with distance or calorie burning targets. Or you can just get on the machine and go, with an auto QuickStart function that launches a workout immediately. No buttons to press or programs to select. The Q35c even goes above and beyond traditional ellipticals with features like the MOM mode. This movement management feature promotes family safety and peace of mind for parents by disabling console buttons and restricting movements, so your little one can't climb on the machine and start moving.
Other features include stationary handlebars that take your arms out of play (ideal for building core and leg strength); contact heart rate grips; a DedicatedLogic button that makes it easy to program workouts; built-in transport wheels; and a space-efficient footprint that's significantly shorter than other premium ellipticals or treadmills.
The console includes a water bottle holder, MP3 player hutch, and reading rack.
