Octane Q35X Elliptical Review
by Shane Munson
The Octane Q35x is a step up in quality over introductory brands of ellipticals. This is an elliptical for people who actually plan on using their elliptical regularly. This elliptical has a very solid feel to it, it does not feel like you are on a toy. The quality parts used in manufacturing will ensure that you have this elliptical for years, even if the whole family is using it. If ceiling height is an issue in your room, this has the lowest ceiling height needed in the industry!
The Q35x comes with a minimalist console for the day and age which will suit many people fine. Do not expect a touchscreen or interactive heart rate work outs or workout tracking. On the flip side, it does have interactive “personal training” workouts on it to either do the whole body, the glutes, or the arms. When I owned a Q35x, the “X-Mode” total body workout was my go to because it broke up the monotony of the normal elliptical cardio workout.
If you do not require an adjustable incline, stride length changes or modern technology on your elliptical I highly recommend the Octane Q35x. If you are debating between this and say a $1500 elliptical, spend the extra money if you can, you will get what you pay for and not be disappointed!
