Octane LateralX Elliptical – Home Fitness Equipment Review #09

Brand new to the home fitness equipment arena, the Octane LateralX Elliptical machine gives you a complete cardio workout, especially focusing on the inner and outer thigh and glutes.

Craig Lewin of Busy Body and Fitness HQ stores in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex and Hut Allred of New Wave Fitness, Inc. review this particular lateral elliptical and show you how it works:

Hut Allred:
This is Hut Allred with New Wave Fitness, here with Craig Lewin of Busy Body and Fitness HQ. How are you doing? You’re looking good.

Craig Lewin:
I’m good, man, how are you doing? I’ve been working out, dude. Check out my guns. They’re pretty good. I’ve been working out; I’ve been eating clean for 7 days. I know you look at me and you think, “Man, that guy needs to lose some weight.” I know that, but here’s the thing—I’m all about just trying to maintain.

I live a crazy lifestyle—go, go, go with all these stores we’ve got in Dallas—and I need the food there ready to go. You’re helping me with that, so I’m pretty excited. As you guys watch these videos, you’re going to see a transformation. Not the biggest loser, but the biggest gainer. You’re going to be excited.

Hut Allred:
Yes, and he’s been posting all of his meals online, so it’s great.

Craig Lewin:
I’m proud, man. When you eat so much broccoli and asparagus, you’re going to post that stuff because that could end.

Hut Allred:
I like all the people that are following you. They’re all supportive.

Craig Lewin:
There’s like 6 of them. The rest are like, “Hey, I don’t want to hear what you have to say about your healthy meals,” including my wife.

Hut Allred:
Well, we’ve got an exciting piece of equipment today, hot off the press, you would say. It’s kind of taken the industry by storm.

Craig Lewin:
It has.

Hut Allred:
Why don’t you tell everybody about what we have with the Octane?

Octane LateralX Elliptical at Busy Body and Fitness HQCraig Lewin:
Okay. Cool. Here’s the thing—Octane Fitness, these guys are unbelievable. They’re always a step ahead of the game. Just when we think, “What can anybody come out with next?” they do it. They’ve come out with a machine that actually goes side to side.

You would never think that that would have been popular for us, but it has absolutely taken off. We’ve had it on the floor now for about 5-6 months and it has been unbelievable. Most elliptical trainers go back and forth, they feel great, it’s a great workout.

But Octane realized there was a real niche missing in the market—side to side. You play with your kids, you know from your football days going side to side, how important that inner/outer thigh is.

Hut Allred:
Absolutely. Totally.

Craig Lewin:
And they realized that by doing a lateral movement, we could get people to burn about 30% more calories on a machine like this, which is huge for us. You do 30 minutes on that, it will absolutely destroy you, which is great, and we can focus on inner/outer thigh, which I know a lot of women love—and glutes. It’s really good.

Hut Allred:
Love it. You hear it all the time.

Craig Lewin:
Come over here for a second. I just want to show you the motion of it. What’s really cool about this machine is that it actually goes side to side (it doesn’t have a front-to-back motion), and you can adjust how much side to side you want it to go.

Hut, we can take this from a Level 1 to a Level 10, not just in resistance, but actually in lateral width. When you go from a 1 to a 10, you’re going to burn about 30% more calories just doing that. It’s amazing how many muscles you engage on this thing.

Hut Allred:
Wow. That is great.

Craig Lewin:
This would be good for you to practice for your skiing coming up and your snowboarding. It’s pretty awesome.

Hut Allred:
Yes! Well, it works all those muscle groups, and for athletes, that’s an athletic position. Those are the muscle groups you use to laterally move. I’ve never seen a product like that. That’s amazing.

Craig Lewin:
It’s pretty amazing. There have been a lot of athletes come in, hockey players, football players and they think this thing is just awesome. But then even a mom who comes in and just wants something different…

Hut Allred:
Inner & outer thigh.

Craig Lewin:
Glutes…and you’re really hitting it, which is great. The other thing is, there’s no pressure on the knees. It just feels really good. We’ve had quite a few orthopedic surgeons come in the store, get on the machine and go, “I don’t feel anything in my knees. This is really a cool machine.”

Hut Allred:
And that’s big for a lot of folks.

Craig Lewin:
It’s made a big, big difference for us.

Hut Allred:
That’s great.

Craig Lewin:
So it’s a cool machine. We’re really, really excited about it—something different, which everyone is looking for, and it just gives you a killer workout.

Hut Allred:
Great, well, that’s the Octane LateralX Elliptical and if you want to come try that out, come to any of the Busy Body stores in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. We’ll leave the information at the end of this video, but come check it out.

Of course there’s additional equipment that you can use to start outfitting your home fitness area, which will make life a lot easier.

Craig Lewin:
Absolutely. We’ll help them out.

Hut Allred:
All right. Thanks, Craig!

Craig Lewin:
Thanks, man. Have fun snowboarding!

Hut Allred:
I will! I love it. Thanks, guys.
