Cottage Grove, Wis. (PRWEB) October 25, 2008
Entertainment and exercise have never come together so beautifully. The all-new Matrix T Series treadmills, from Johnson Health Tech North America Corp., are coming early next year to leading health clubs around the country.
The T Series treadmills - T7xe, T7x and T5x - offer a stunning array of features, including a 15-inch touch-screen LCD TV on the T7xe and compatibility with iPod® on the T7xe and T7x. All three models were designed with the input of fitness enthusiasts, so they are extremely intuitive and fun to use. Introduced recently at Club Industry, a trade show for health club products, they are the brand's most advanced, innovative, exercise-inspiring treadmills to date.
"The T Series treadmills are tremendously approachable, incredibly easy to use and above all, enormously inspirational," said Chris Clawson, president and CEO of JHTNAC. "They will change the way people use fitness equipment."
T7xe 15-inch Touch-Screen LCD TV Console
The T7xe features a dazzling 15-inch touch-screen LCD TV with Vista Clear Television Technology for a crisp, vibrant picture (also on the T7x) and FitTouch Technology for intuitive touch-screen functionality.
The display also lets users select what workout feedback data they want to see, at the touch of a finger. A feature like the "last" button on a TV remote enables exercisers to toggle between their current and most recent incline levels and between their current and most recent speeds.
The T7xe also offers an industry first: Users can view videos and TV programs on every inch of an integrated 15-inch screen, thanks to a secondary LCD data display that shows workout time and distance.
Compatible with iPod
The new T7xe and T7x treadmills enable users to view, play and control their music and videos for iPod directly through the T7xe's integrated 15-inch touch-screen and on the T7x's integrated 7-inch screen. A silicon pad holds the iPod in place even when the treadmill is inclined, protects it from scratches and prevents it from rattling. Also, iPod devices charge when connected.
All three new treadmills boast the Ultimate Deck System, which absorbs impact for a soft user feel. They also have the Matrix Dynamic Response Drive System, the same proven drive system that's on the current Matrix T5x treadmill. Coupled with advanced controller technology, the Matrix Dynamic Response Drive continuously monitors and adjusts the motor's output to ensure each stride is smooth, fluid and even.
All three models also feature:
--An integrated, three-speed fan
--A large, 22-inch-by-60-inch running surface
--A low, 9.5-inch step-up height for easy entering and exiting
