Matrix treadmills are the high-end brand of Johnson Health Tech, makers of the popular Horizon and Vision exercise machines.
The company recently introduced a full residential line of treadmills, ellipticals and indoor bikes, catering to those who want the very best money can buy.
We will be adding model reviews as we are able to try them out, so check back often for updates.
So far the Matrix treadmills have been very well received…these are rock-solid, commercial grade machines that provide an effective, gym-quality workout that is unmatched. Time will tell if they are able to give Life Fitness and Precor a run for their money in the high end residential market.
Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons:
Matrix Treadmill Pros
1. Construction and durability are top notch. From the frame to the thick deck to the industrial grade cushioning system, this is a treadmill that is built to last.
2. You get a choice of consoles. Unlike with most companies, Matrix gives you a choice of three different consoles on all of their treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes. You can choose the display that most appeals to you which is a great feature.
3. Johnson Fitness is a well-regarded company. As the second largest exercise equipment company behind ICON Health, the company has a good reputation in the industry. Besides Matrix treadmills, they also make Horizon, Vision and AFG…all respected brands in various price categories.
Matrix Treadmill Cons
1. The only real negative is the price tag, which is higher than most home users are able or willing to spend on a treadmill. But remember that these are commercial-grade machines, so you’re really getting what you pay for.
If you’re considering Matrix treadmills, look for their special sales that take place throughout the year, especially on holidays. That way you can save some money and get free shipping as well.
Also, you can oftentimes get better deals buying directly from Matrix rather than through a third party, so start at the company website and see what they have to offer before you go to a local exercise equipment seller.
