Product Preview — The Matrix Ascent Trainer Elliptical

Read Other Elliptical Reviews


I recently received a note from Kevin Mast at Matrix Fitness. As anyone who has ever been on a Matrix elliptical or treadmill knows, they produce some of the top equipment on the market today. These guys know what they are doing.

Kevin sent over a brochure for their new elliptical machine which features an incline! That’s great news to anyone who wants to kick their workout up a notch or two. In the past this feature has only been found on Precor ellipticals such as the Precor 546, or on a couple of models from Icon Fitness where the technology has been licensed from Precor. Luckily with the Matrix Ascent elliptical, Matrix has figured out a way to loosen the stranglehold Precor has had on the incline elliptical.

The Matrix Ascent Trainer Elliptical

Check out the very impressive specs on the Matrix Ascent Trainer:

Matrix Ascent Trainer Specifications

Incline: 30%
Heart Rate Monitor: Yes
Heart Rate Control: Yes
Display: LED
Programs: 8
Resistance Levels: 25
Elevation Levels: 20

Now, I haven’t actually seen one of the Matrix Ascent units yet, but Kevin promises they will be on hand at the big fitness tradeshow, IHRSA, in March. I’ll be there and I’ll be ready to give a full report on the machine. From what I’ve seen in the brochure, this is going to be a major competitor for the older technology of the Precor 546…expect to see all the top gyms and fitness clubs installing the Matrix Ascent as soon as they are released. Check back then for more information on ordering and pricing.

About My Treadmill Reviews

TreadmillMy treadmill reviews are both subjective and objective. They are objective in the sense that I will provide you with information about each machine, such as motor, weight capacity and other features. But they are subjective in the sense that I am really giving my opinion of each treadmill. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, but my hope is that my elliptical and treadmill reviews can be helpful to you in making a decision on what to buy. Remember that each review is just what I think. You can always check out Treadmill Doctor, Treadmill Review Guru or these other treadmill reviews if you want another opinion.
