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.
