Matrix Fitness unveils versatile products at Fitness Show Sydney
May 5, 2017

Matrix Fitness made an impact at the 2017 Fitness Show Sydney last weekend launching a new collection of products and programming designed to meet the needs of a wider range of fitness facilities.

New-to-market products at this year’s show, included:

Versa Functional Trainer - The smart design of the Versa Functional Trainer provides a remarkable range of exercise options in a space-saving footprint. Incremental weight adjustment and a 1:2 pulley ratio make it easy to control exercise intensity and create progressions right for everyone from deconditioned users to elite athletes. Numerous forward-thinking features - including a multi-grip pull-up bar, color-coded adjustment points and professionally illustrated exercise placards - offer intuitive operation for users and trainers alike. Optional storage makes it easy to organize and stow accessories for instant access, and a completely enclosed design protects the unit’s moving parts while creating a solid, cohesive aesthetic. Customers can choose from 18″ and 30″ storage modules, plus add heavy weight stacks and training handles to better serve their needs.

Versa Duals - The expanded versatility of these new dual-function stations makes it easy for fitness facilities to create a weight-training collection ideal for their space, budget and members. By mixing and matching a range of two-in-one stations, fitness facilities can make more efficient use of their floor space while providing a complete strength training experience. Intuitive adjustment, incremental weight control and clearly illustrated placards make it easy for users of all ability levels to smoothly transition from one exercise to the next, while ergonomic design adds comfort to every workout. Dual-function stations include Lat Pulldown / Seated Row, Bicep / Tricep, Ab / Lower Back, Chin / Dip Assist, Leg Extension / Leg Curl and Multi-Press units. Customers can also customize their stations with weight stack options and a premium Versa+ package, or complete their offering with Versa single-station units.

3xe and 1xe Consoles - Available on a full spectrum of Matrix cardio products, new 3xe and 1xe Consoles are designed to fit the budgets of value-conscious fitness facilities and keep their members entertained while they work out. An integrated 41 cm/16″ class touchscreen display with an intuitive app interface offers easy operation for users, and vibrant Vista Clear television technology provides the clearest, brightest picture in the fitness industry. A wide range of workout programs and complete workout data feedback help users set and achieve goals more effectively. One-button start and on-the-fly program change streamline use and a USB port offers easy smartphone connection. Users can also take advantage of Virtual Active compatibility to go on immersive journeys through exotic locales, all synched to the pace of their workout.

MX4 Training System - The MX4 Training System is designed for facilities seeking to differentiate their group training offering in a way that attracts, engages and retains more members. This versatile new group training concept leverages Matrix-exclusive equipment and original turnkey programming to address multiple aspects of fitness - cardio, power, strength and endurance - in a unique, motivating and result-driven multi-modality framework. Versatile Matrix products like the Connexus Functional Training System, S-Drive Performance Trainer, Rower and Krankcycle can be combined in near-limitless ways to challenge members of all ability levels. Certified Master Trainers guide members through flexible progressions to help them establish, enhance and elevate their overall fitness while building the kind of relationships and camaraderie that foster lasting loyalty.

Gary Peak, Managing Director for Johnson Health Tech Australia explained "we’ve focused on versatility in the development of these new products and programming, based on the diverse needs of the commercial fitness market."

In addition to its new products, Matrix were also offering live product demonstrations of the MX4 Small Group Training System. 

Matrix Fitness products are distributed by Johnson Health Tech Australia.
