Matrix Fitness T7xe Review
Matrix Fitness is synonymous with quality and dependability. The company is a leading provider of commercial level fitness equipment. The Matrix T7xe is one of the company’s finest treadmills, offering up a great running experience for commercial settings, such as, fitness centres and hotels, but also those looking for an amazing at-home running experience.
The Matrix T7xe comes with an uber impressive 5.0 HP motor with a Dynamic Response Drive System. What does that mean and how does that compare to other machines? Well for starters, most at home treadmills top out at 3.5 HP with a max speed of around 20 km per hour. The Matrix T7xe can produce a top speed of 24 km per hour. The motor is built tough and more than capable of supporting daily high performance running.
The run is also super comfortable and quiet. The running deck is spacious at 56cm by 152cm which gives runners more space and freedom. More impressive is the fact that the running deck is self-lubricating and housed with the Ultimate Deck Cushioning System which eases the impact to your bones and joints. We did say Matrix was all about the quality, no? Well the running deck on this T7xe offers over 25,000 miles of maintenance-free running. Now that is simply jaw-dropping!
Aside from the elite-level performance of this treadmill, its technology is even more impressive. The treadmill comes with a 16-inch high resolution display. It is WiFi enabled, allowing viewing of whatever your heart desires. The display can also be connected to IPTV, allowing you to watch the tele while going for a run.
Extending our talk beyond display and web connectivity, the Matrix T7xe offers a host of technology to keep you active and engaged in your workouts. For example, there are Virtual Active Workouts. Much like Icon Fitness’ iFit, these Virtual Active Workouts are high definition videos combined with dynamic changes in treadmill speeds and inclines to match foot and terrain movements of specific runs. Could you imagine a run through the Pentland Hills near Edinburgh? Splendid.
Looking to add something extra to your workouts? Some more intensity? The T7xe offers up the Sprint8 training program, a renowned 20 minute high-intensity interval training workout. Need that extra push? Matrix has its Workout Tracking Network which connects to the exercise data on your fitness app, helping you create personal goals or compete is challenges. Need even more of a push? Matrix also offers Virtual Coaching or a Virtual Fitness instructor!! In all honest, we can keep going with all the features and offerings from Matrix and its T7xe, but we’ll take a breather for now 🙂
Not sure if we need to state the obvious. But we love this treadmill and have a deep respect for the Matrix brand.
