Move in a New Direction
Setting a new standard for innovation, Octane’s award-winning LateralX keeps getting better. Now with a streamlined design, contemporary colors and a quieter stride adjustment motor, this cross trainer offers adjustable movement that transitions from a vertical, stepping motion to a lateral motion for greater challenge and results. Studies show that LateralX users burn 27% more calories and use 30% more of the inner and outer thighs when going from the lowest to greatest lateral width setting.
Reinventing cross training, the innovative LateralX utilizes varying planes of motion, including a stepping movement and adjustable, side-to-side motion, for functional exercise that builds stamina, muscular endurance and core stability.
Research shows a 27% increase in caloric expenditure going from lateral width 1 to lateral width 10, and a 30% increase in outer and inner thigh work over traditional ellipticals. The variety within the movements keeps exercisers motivated and enjoying workouts!*
*Study conducted by Minnesota State University Mankato going from lateral width 1 to lateral width 10.
For additional variety, the stepping motion can be used to alternate with lateral movements, for recovery or to incorporate beneficial cross training and target different muscle groups. Exercisers are free to customize their motion at any time throughout workouts.
The upper body gets totally involved using the patented, breakthrough MultiGrip and Converging Path handlebars, which fits exercisers comfortably. It’s easy to target different arm, chest and back muscles by changing the hand position on the MultiGrip handlebars, which include fingertip controls for stride width and resistance.
And the Converging Path handlebars follow the natural path of the arms when walking, running or moving side to side.
Designed with a compact footprint and self-powered operation, the LateralX fits anywhere in a fitness facility, which makes it easy to floor several units to meet demand and accommodate many exercisers. It’s simple to get on and off the machine safely with its low step-up height and rear access.
