Matrix Fitness introduces the new Performance Plus Treadmill

Matrix Fitness, one of the world’s fastest-growing commercial fitness brands, is set to change the way the fitness industry thinks about slat-belt treadmills by introducing their thoughtfully designed Performance Plus Treadmill.

The reimagined treadmill sets a new standard with a shock-absorbing slat-belt and a high-efficiency drive that make even the most intense runs feel comfortable, solid and smooth, lasting up to 100,000 miles in the most intense environments. Despite this incredible evolution of technology, service and maintenance have never been easier.

“We knew that slat-belt treadmills had advantages for both owners and users, but for the most part, they were only in athletic training facilities,” said Kevin Mast, Global Product Manager, Cardio, Matrix Fitness. “We set out to build a slat-belt treadmill that would bring this level of performance to the cardio floor.”

In addition to the user experience, the Performance Plus was designed with facility owners and service technicians in mind. Engineered to be durable and efficient, the Performance Plus can log up to 100,000 miles with minimum maintenance, all while operating with far less power requirements than traditional belt-and-deck treadmills.

The Performance Plus Treadmill is compatible with Matrix’s diverse new collection of consoles giving customers the flexibility to deliver the experience that is right for their budget and their members. The Touch XL, Touch, Premium LED, Group Training LED and standard LED consoles offer a wide variety of choices when it comes to entertainment, exclusive exercise programmes, connectivity, workout feedback and intuitive use.

“Offering choices when it comes to technology was extremely important to us,” said Andrew Kolman, Senior Global Director, Technology and Business Development, for Matrix. “We know not every fitness facility is the same, and not every fitness facility caters to the same kind of user.”

“By offering everything from simple to sophisticated consoles, owners and operators can tailor the equipment experience to the desires of their guests. All of our consoles are also compatible with our Connected Solutions portfolio, which will enhance the experience in a way that allows them to differentiate from their competition.”

The Performance Plus Treadmill is now available. For more information about Performance Plus, visit
