With its fluid pedal motion and steep incline option, the Matrix A7xe Ascent Elliptical Crosstrainer delivers a whole body workout that is hard to beat. The machine, with its movable handlebars, tones all the muscles in the legs, arms and core. It also offers a superb cardiovascular workout that will get users into the best shape of their life. The longer-than-average stride length—24 inches—and the incline range—from 24 percent to 54 percent—make the Ascent Elliptical Trainer very versatile and fun to use. And the pedal straps, which set the feet firmly in place, not only offer a measure of safety and security, they also ensure a relatively low-impact workout compared to some of the pounding pressure one might experience on a basic treadmill.
The Matrix A7xe Ascent Elliptical Trainer comes preloaded with a dozen different workout options from which users can choose. These pre-set and specially-designed workout options include a rolling hills course, with lots of ups, downs and straightaways; three goal-based programs that measure for time, distance and calories, respectively; its patented Sprint 8 course; a fat-burning mode, in which users strive to maintain a given target heart rate based on their age and weight; a constant watts regimen; interval training; and a mode designed specifically to work the muscles of the gluteal region. Each of these workouts can be further changed and personalized in intensity by using the 25 levels of resistance—resistance levels that are at the user’s fingertips for on the fly flexibility.
One of the best features of the Matrix A7xe Ascent Elliptical crosstrainer is the large, 16 inch touch-screen display monitor. From here, users will receive colorful readouts detailing various fitness data related to their workout. This data includes items like heart rate—measured both wirelessly and by touch; watts, METs, resistance, calories burned, elapsed time/time remaining in the workout; distance and altitude. The monitor can even be upgraded to pair with a wide range of electronic entertainment devices, transforming the monitor into a streaming video screen with out-of-this-world graphics.
Our professionally refurbished elliptical trainers set the industry standard, which competitors can only try to emulate. This process is done to the manufacturer’s specifications and is conducted exclusively in-house, allowing for complete control over quality. Our certified refurbished gym equipment are truly in a class of their own.
This part is the user's direct connection to the elliptical and is the initial way a user may distinguish the machine from new, thus a fresh overlay is key. We replace all overlays with new ones to ensure reliability, longevity and a blemish free machine that will last for the long haul.
All emblems and decals are replaced with new ones, as a pre-requisite to our remanufacturing process. To achieve a "like-new" elliptical, it is imperative that even the smallest details are affected and perfected, adhering with the manufacturer’s original cosmetic specifications.
It is easy to cut costs and use cheap entry level replacement parts such as belts and assemblies but at GFI, we use premium drive belts. Drive assemblies are either rebuilt or recycled and replaced with new ones. These ensure easy use and extend the life of the part and elliptical.
The technicians in our electronics department inspect and run each crosstrainer board through a series of tests using scopes and other sophisticated testing equipment. Often, basic repairs can be made returning the part to a perfect condition. If this is not possible, parts are recycled and replaced.
Our engineering department is responsible for dismantling, diagnosing and rebuilding all alternators/generators. To provide an exceptional Elliptical Trainer, this product must be rebuilt (or replaced) to ensure perfect functionality and performance. Batteries are recycled and replaced as necessary.
We are the only used fitness equipment factory in the United States with our own in-house silica sandblasting and powder coating shop. All of our Elliptical Trainer frames and metal parts are run through this process and can therefore be considered truly refurbished.
We replace the shrouds on our Elliptical Trainers unless they are in pristine condition. Often our competitors will choose to repair and paint these parts which over time will look worn and old, and may just as easily break again. Our process ensures a better crosstrainer overall.
Our Refurbished Machines carry a 1 Year comprehensive parts & labor warranty.
