Final thoughts on this trainer
Nearly anyone who owns one of this product will tell you it is the best home elliptical they have ever purchased and it rivals those that are seen in many gyms. When you want something that nice, however, there is going to be a cost, and the Octane Fitness has a price point of just under $2,200.00, making it one of the more expensive home units available on the market. That being said, if you have the space and want a top quality machine, then you expect to have to pay a premium for that privilege. This product can certainly provide that for you, giving you great options and a solid workout every time you use it, so if you have the money to invest and the space this should be one of your top considerations.
