Stepping Motion - an additional movement option that simulates a stepping movement for greater variety and recovery period. It's a continuous motion that is more rewarding and will keep you going longer.
I recently purchased the LX8000 and have used it every day for the past 100 days. I am in my mid 60s and for the last 4 years have used a conventional elliptical trainer for conditioning and knee issues. Since using the LX 8000 with its lateral options, my knees have have taken on a new level of strengh and reduced pain/discomfort. I additionally use the forward and reverse program and all pain/discomfort I experienced in prior years is gone. When I started using the various programs, I experienced new muscle tiredness which told me that I was using new muscles. I love this machine and the investment was well worth the higher cost of it. The results I have obtained in the first 4 months of use exceeded my expectations. Although the machine is sold as commercial unit with a 3 year warranty, I bought the LX 8000 as a home unit and Octane extended the warranty to 5 years.
I initially had a slight problem with the lateral movement and contacted Octane and after troubleshooting for a few minutes, they sent a small harness replacement overnight and a local technician installed it the next day - unbelieveable tech support from Octane. I reccomend the LX8000 for young and old alike. As many gyms are now purchaing these units, you may want to try one out before purchasing.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
