Matrix A30 Ascent Trainer with XER Console – Review

The Conclusion

The Matrix A30 Ascent Trainer includes power incline and multiple integrated convenience features. The Matrix XER console includes a clear display and an intuitive home screen that offers easy access to entertainment.

I love the features that the A30 provides to the exerciser. To some exercising could be tedious, but it hard to be bored while working out on the A30. The A30 has programs divided into sections including training, goals, target heart rate resistance, and Sprint 8. My favorite program that the A30 offers is the Sprint 8. It is a science-based cardio workout program has been proven to boost energy, reduce body fat, promote lean muscle mass and improve cholesterol in just eight weeks. Exercisers will be able to track their workouts through the ViaFit app. One can also keep track of their calories via my fitness pal.

The other features added in the A30 are entertainment based. The virtual active Virtual Active is a first-person, forward-motion video experience designed to enhance one’s cardio workout by experiencing journeys through stunning worldwide destinations from the inside of one’s home. One will also be able to watch their favorite movies and television shows via Hulu and Netflix.

While on the A30, I experienced a great workout. With most elliptical, since one’s feet need to stay on foot pedals, they can feel like they have less control over their movements, and it’s less natural for someone who’s used to running. This elliptical is designed with Perfect Stride motion eliminates surges and dead spots so you move more smoothly, burn more calories and get better results.

Overall, I believe the A30 is an excellent piece of fitness equipment. I enjoyed myself exercising on it. It is not like most cardiovascular machines on the market. The console is large, clear and easy to use. Exercisers are able to change workout while working out, while other machines causes one to stop their original workout in order to start a new one. The A30 is the way of the future. Smart technology is in everything from phone to televisions, so why not incorporate them into fitness equipment. These features cause one to be completely immersed into the machine, which results in a better workout experience. I would highly recommend this product to all exercisers.
