Love It!

We bought ours a couple of months ago after our treadmill died. We were looking for something a bit different that would give a great workout while preserving our increasingly tender 40-something joints. What a great machine! Super quiet, and the incline and resistance variations keep it fresh and INTENSE! Our kids use Netflix while using it, while we're partial to the Passport program to distract, or just playing around with the manual and track screens to challenge. Despite a foot height difference between us, we both find it really comfortable to use. I don't use the arms, but they're not in the way. Definitely worth the money!

I bought my Matrix A50 Ascent trainer a couple of months ago and I love it. It's quiet and smooth and reliable and it's easy to stay engaged with it. The sales lady Maureen Fallon is great and followed up after the sale to make sure everything was going well. . If your in the market for an elliptical you should give this unit serious consideration. I also I recommend going for the XIR console. It's awesome.

Great Elliptical

We bought our Matrix A50 after we tried another brand of elliptical machine. I have bad knees, and after just 30 seconds on the other brand, the knee I had surgery on was very painful. Jay then showed us the Matrix A50. I was very impressed with how smooth the machine operated. I did not have any pain with my knees or back. My wife was equally impressed with the elliptical. We bought the XIR console and enjoy the different training programs.

I previously owned commercial models of other well-known brands. This 322lb unit handles all the abuse my 250lb body can dish-out, in a more compact footprint, and with state-of-the-art technology features!

Sprint 8 WOW!

For those looking for a 20 min HIIT program this is it. I love that in 20 minutes I can maximize my workout and move on with my day. I have seen results faster with this program than any other I have tried. I also like the interactive capability of the panel for days I have a little more time and although I am using this elliptical longer on some days the time flies because of the fun programs like Virtual Active.

Great sales team!

My wife and I love our new Matrix A50 and really appreciate the support we received from RJ and Nathan at Johnson Fitness. Their help from the initial shopping through the purchase and follow-up after the sale was and has been excellent.

Very good workout

I greatly enjoy fitness on this machine as part of a broader fitness routine. I am really beat after a solid workout, where I push to max assent and max resistance during a routine. I would recommend it.
