Thanks and Giving

We’ve come upon a special week where families get together to share delicious meals and heartfelt thanks for what they find truly important. Much like you – friends, family, and health are at the top of my list. I would also like to take some time to offer thanks and gratitude to others that are important to the Matrix family.

Thanks go out to our dealer network, those who have done, and continue to do, such a wonderful job of representing our brand and products. I truly appreciate our direct sales team, a team myself and Matrix customers can always depend on for high integrity and exemplary service. I’m thankful for our key internal departments (Customer Tech Support, Accounting, Engineering, Quality, Logistics, the list goes on) who pull it all together for a superb customer experience.

And last but not least, I would like to offer a sincere thank you to our customers – those who have placed trust in Matrix and our products to be an integral part of the success of your facility. A facility, that in turn, provides health and fitness to the communities that you serve. Thank you.

Yes, there is a lot to be thankful for again this year. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

In Health,



The Krankcycle Goes to College

There may be long standing rivalries between colleges and universities in the United States (Ohio State vs. Michigan or UNC vs. Duke, for example), but one thing they do have in common is the integration of the Johnny G Krankcycle® by Matrix into training programs on campus.

Krankcycles can be found in 35 Student Rec Centers throughout the U.S. UCLA and Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) feature Power Kranking and Krank Fusion to provide students and athletes with high intensity interval training. Other schools like University of Illinois and Purdue University use the Krankcycle in circuit training for Krank Boot Camp! For a listing of learning institutions currently offering Kranking, visit

Are you attending the Athletic Business Conference in New Orleans on November 29– Dec 1? Stop by Matrix booth #400 and let our CSULB Krankcycle Trainers, (Team USA track cyclist and 2016 Olympic hopeful Nate Koch and Athletic Trainer Ryan Smith) show you how easily the Krankcycle fits into any training program to benefit your campus athletes and students!

Virtual Active Destination – Northern Italy

Where would you like to go today? With Virtual Active™ by Matrix, users have the chance to escape to exotic locales, including Northern Italy, our feature destination for November.

This journey takes you though areas where early adventurers in the Bronze Age were attracted to due to the prevalence of copper ore. Marble, semiprecious stones and oil shale have also been found in this region. Your Virtual Active run will take you along the historic road to Timmelsjoch, which was built in 1959 to accommodate tourists while seamlessly blending into the landscape. On the border of Austria in Italy’s Otztal Alps, Timmelsjoch is often referred to as the ‘secret passage’ because it is used less heavily than other mountain passes in the area. Your run will then transition from Timmelsjoch to Venice. Known for its canals, gondolas, and beautiful architecture, Venice is also recognized for its film festival. Founded in 1934, the Venice Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world. Another site worth noting along your voyage is Piazza San Marco, or ‘The drawing room of Europe’. This is one of the few great urban spaces left in the area that’s not polluted by the sound of motorized traffic.

Virtual Active by Matrix is fully-interactive video programming compatible with all existing 7xe, 3xe cardio products and Myride.
