VANCOUVER, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 7, 2017 – Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), a leader in
innovative fitness equipment, announced that Octane
Fitness is introducing its second commercial Zero Runner®, the
ZR7000, along with the new Octane AirdyneX™ air resistance bike at Booth
#1001 during the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub
Convention and Trade Show taking place in Los Angeles from March 8-11.
“Based on the incredible popularity of the Zero Runner, we are excited
to extend this product category to even more fitness facilities with the
ZR7000,” said Tim Porth, Vice President Product Development and
Marketing at Octane Fitness. “And as part of our commitment to
continually growing the zero-impact category, we have repurposed the
winning technology of the Airdyne® Pro bike to produce the Octane
AirdyneX for fitness facilities worldwide.”
Octane’s exclusive Zero
Runner machine differs from a treadmill and offers a more
comfortable way to walk, jog or run by minimizing repetitive, stressful
impact. Independent hip and knee joints on the Zero Runner enable
exercisers to replicate their natural strides, up to 58 inches, at their
own pace. With stride tracing technology (smart console only), users
also can monitor their stride throughout workouts for consistent, proper
The new ZR7000 has many of the same features and capabilities as the
higher-end ZR8000, but is a value option for commercial health clubs and
fitness centers that want to offer this cutting-edge new modality to
Exercisers can choose from several programs, including interval
training, distance and calorie goals and Octane’s exclusive CROSS
CiRCUIT® routine, which combines intervals on the Zero Runner with
strength and stretching exercises off the machine. Fitness professionals
also can use the CROSS CiRCUIT program for individual training sessions
or small group training.
The ZR7000 can be equipped with either a smart or standard console. The
smart console has a 10-inch LCD touchscreen, internet browser (Ethernet
and Wi-Fi connections are standard), streaming videos and music; the
standard console has an LED display with dedicated workout buttons.
Both consoles include mobile device charging, phone/tablet docking
stations, ANT+ compatibility and asset management. For additional
entertainment options, each console also can be upgraded with a personal
viewing screen or 900 MHz wireless receiver.
Without a motor, belt or deck, the Zero Runner does not incur the high
costs of treadmill maintenance and service, thereby providing savings to
fitness centers. The ZR7000 is priced beginning at $7199 MSRP and will
be available in the third quarter of 2017. For more information, visit www.zerorunner.com.
As part of the Nautilus family of brands, Octane Fitness adapted
the iconic Airdyne Pro bike for commercial use. The new Octane
AirdyneX bike is ideal for functional training areas, small group
training or personal training sessions. This total-body bike features a
26-blade performance fan and a responsive, single-stage belt drive,
yielding virtually unlimited resistance and maximum efficiency, with the
exerciser’s power converted to intensity.
MultiGrip handlebars provide various positions for the hands, and
anti-slip foot pegs facilitate exclusive upper-body work.
With a user-defined pace and resistance, the AirdyneX accommodates
beginners to athletes. High-intensity interval training programs include
20/10 interval, 30/90 interval and custom routines, where exercisers can
challenge themselves to bury the needle on the console tachometer.
Calibration technology ensures precise power output data, and the
self-powered AirdyneX boasts Octane’s trademark durability, with
heavy-duty construction and a moisture-repellant frame.
The AirdyneX will be available in fall 2017 for $1499 MSRP. For more
