The multi-million-pound facility, in Woodley, Wokingham, enables guests, members and VIPs from across the borough to stay physically active and emotionally engaged in fitness, sport and wellbeing.

To help achieve this goal, the centre offers some of Octane’s most popular fitness innovations, including the revolutionary xRide recumbent elliptical, LateralX lateral elliptical and the intuitive AirdyneX HIIT bike.

“We’ve installed Octane Fitness products across our entire estate,” says Sarah Roberts, fitness operations manager at Places Leisure. “We regard them as being unique products offering a fantastic variety of options.

“Whether it’s the xR6000 seated x-trainers and LateralX in the main cardio areas, or the AirdyneX fan bike for the HIIT trainers, with its superior levels of innovation, Octane continues to be an obvious choice to complement our first-class product line-up.”

As part of Octane’s zero-impact cardiovascular line, the innovative xRide xR6000S recumbent elliptical is ideal for anyone who wants to take on seated total-body, low-impact workouts, from beginners and those undergoing rebab, to seniors and committed exercisers. The xRide’s PowerStroke technology benefits users by engaging more muscles.

Alternatively, exercisers can move in a new direction with the LateralX.

Adjustable motion
A one-of-a-kind variation of the traditional elliptical cross trainer, the LateralX offers smooth, 3D-adjustable motion that goes from a vertical elliptical stepping motion to an active side-to-side motion to offer invigorating workouts that motivate and challenge exercisers of all fitness levels.

For HIIT, the AirdyneX is equipped with a 26-blade performance fan and a responsive, single-stage belt drive for virtually unlimited resistance and maximum efficiency, by converting the exerciser’s effort into intensity.

Pedalling slowly yields lighter resistance, whereas a faster cadence results in greater resistance. Combined with the latest Octane Rō rowing machine, which has dual resistance, quick release foot straps and a multigrip handlebar, Octane delivers effective, efficient HIIT experiences.

“Places Leisure is producing some fantastic new gyms,” says Neil Campbell, GM of Octane Fitness UK, “I love how the team is using Octane to complement the gym, by adding our unique x-training and HIIT training products.

“Octane is recognised as a leader in providing valuable variety and interest to many operators’ gyms.”
