Running with joint pain is never a pleasant experience. Be it on a treadmill, on a trail or sidewalk. Not to mention it gets cold in Canada, and icy here in Calgary, running out side might not be as easy as it sounds.

Octane Fitness, based out of Minnesota USA are the leading manufactures of Ellipticals today. Durability is key to any type of fitness equipment. You want it to last, and last it will. Ten years in the future where do you see yourself? Are you more fit than you used to be? Or are you on the decline? Exercising on an Elliptical will keep your joints from excessive wear and tear, come try one yourself and see what it’s like.

With a new year, like anything, there are new models. Check out our brand new 2014 Octane Elliptical cross trainers. Blue tooth compatible, new Smartlight technology that gives you a visualization with colours of your speed and resistance changes. The more effort you are putting in, the more red will show. Colour coded to match arm blaster, glute kicker as well as x-mode Smartlight adds a nice visual experience to your work out.

The Octane 37xi and 47xi are Bluetooth compatible, meaning you can connect your iPad to your elliptical wirelessly and use it as your consol. With a sleek design and tons of functions; FAQs to full on work outs with training videos for any sport you desire, swimming, football, running, rowing. The xi is everything you require of a personal trainer without the monthly fees.

With four different resistance bandsavailable, and three areas to attach them on your elliptical depending on which exercises you intend to preform, there is no reason for you to get tired of your work out. Work your legs and your arms at the same time, hop off and do some core exercises, jump back on the elliptical, get that heart pumping and then use the resistance bands. Unsure which exercises to preform? No worries, octane provides Cross Training, training DVDs instructed by personal trainer Chris Freytag.

Elliptical Trainers offer low impact exercise, which is great for those who have chronic or acute joint pain. With these pains it is essentially to exercise and to stretch to avoid further injury and degeneration of the joints and surrounding muscles, ligaments and tendons.

All our Ellipticals have the reverse stride ability, what this is going to do is work different muscle groups in your legs. Fuel your work out with X-Mode, 1 minute of regular elliptical movement, 20 seconds of either fast, slow, pull arms, push arms, lean back, reverse and lean back or any combination of these. Other features include Arm Blaster and Glute Kicker. Digital heart rate contact sensors or wireless chest strap (Polar coded or non-coded) are both part of the package.

Author Bio:

My name is Nelsons, I moved to Calgary in March from New Brunswick after graduating from The Atlantic Paramedic Academy. With years of experience skiing, snowboarding and camping I came out here to experience life in the mountains. I have always been involved in one sport or another throughout my life; soccer, basketball, cross-country, lacrosse and swimming. With the ultimate goal of helping others, mentally or physically, I am comfortable consulting people regarding medical issues as well as in fitness and diet.

My time working here at Fitness Equipment of Calgary I have got to learn about a lot of different pieces of exercise equipment. And I would have to say I am most impressed with Octanes Ellipticals Calgary, great assortments of cross training exercises and such a smooth ride. A great addition to any commercial or home gym.
