6. 2 1.5 DEDICATED CIRCUIT/ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT INFO All Matrix Ascent Trainers require the use of a 15 amp or 20 amp “dedicated circuit,” with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground, for the power requirement. Quite simply this means that each outlet you plug Ascent Trainers into should not have anything else running on that same circuit besides other Ascent trainers (up to 3 per 15 amp circuit and 4 per 20 amp circuit). The easiest way to verify this is to locate the main circuit breaker box, and turn off the breaker(s) one at a time. Once a breaker has been turned off, the only thing that should not have power to it are the Ascent trainers in question. No lamps, vending machines, fans, sound systems, or any other item should lose power when you perform this test. Non-looped (isolated) neutral/grounding means that each circuit must have an individual neutral/ground connection coming from it, and terminating at an approved earth ground. You cannot “jumper” a single neutral/ground from one circuit to the next. In addition to the dedicated circuit requirement, the proper gauge wire must be used from the circuit breaker box, to each outlet that will have the maximum number of units running off of it. If the distance from the circuit breaker box, to each outlet, is 100 ft or less, then 12 gauge wire may be used. For any distance greater than 100 ft from the circuit breaker box to the outlet, 10 gauge wire must be used. 2.1 RECOMMENDED CLEANING TIPS Preventative maintenance and daily cleaning will prolong the life and look of your MATRIX Ascent Trainer or Elliptical. Please read and follow these tips. • Position the equipment away from direct sunlight. The intense UV light can cause discoloration on plastics. • Locate your equipment in an area with cool temperatures and low humidity. • Clean with a soft 100% cotton cloth. • Clean with soap and water or other non-ammonia based all purpose cleaners. • Wipe foot pads, handles, heart rate grips, and handlebars clean after each use. • Do not pour liquids directly onto your equipment. This can cause damage to the equipment and in some cases electrocution. • Check pedal motion and stability. • Adjust leveling feet when equipment wobbles or rocks. • Maintain a clean area around equipment, free from dust and dirt. 2.2 CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS DO NOT use any equipment that is damaged or has worn or broken parts. Use only replacement parts supplied by Matrix Fitness Systems. MAINTAIN LABELS AND NAMEPLATES . Do not remove labels for any reason. They contain important information. If unreadable or missing, contact Matrix Fitness Systems for a replacement. 1-866-693-4863, www.matrixfitness.com MAINTAIN ALL EQUIPMENT Preventative maintenance is the key to smooth operating equipment. Equipment needs to be inspected at regular intervals. Defective components must be replaced immediately. Improperly working equipment must be kept out of use until it is repaired. Ensure that any person(s) making adjustments or performing maintenance or repair of any kind is qualified to do so. Matrix Fitness Systems will provide service and maintenance training at our corporate facility upon request or in the field if proper arrangements are made. CHAPTER 1: I mportant S afety I nstructions CHAPTER 2: P reventative m aintenance 1.6 GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS The elliptical must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. The elliptical is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. If the user does not follow these grounding Instructions, the user could void the Matrix limited warranty. DANGER : Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in the risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the user is in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product if it will not fit the outlet; have a proper outlet installed by a qualified technician. A3x_E3xc_rev1.7.indd 2 8/6/10 2:33 PM

11. 7 CHAPTER 4: U sing t he e 3 xc c onsole 4.6 HEART RATE CONTROL Your Matrix Ascent Trainer / Elliptical offers a heart rate control workout mode. The heart rate control workout mode allows the user to program their desired heart rate zone and the machine will adjust the resistance automati - cally based on the user’s heart rate. The heart rate zone is calculated using the following equation: (220-Age)*% = target heart rate zone. The user must wear a telemetric heart rate monitor or continually hold onto the contact heart rate grips for this workout.” • Press “ TARGET HEART RATE ”. • Enter your “ AGE ” using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER . • Enter your desired percentage of maximum heart rate using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER . • Enter your desired “ TIME ” using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER . • Enter your “ WEIGHT ” using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER (user weight is used to calculate the caloric expenditure during the workout). 4.7 CONSTANT WATTS CONSTANT WATTS workout is a unique program that allows you to vary your cadence or RPM and the machine’s resistance will adjust accordingly to your selected goal. The quicker you stride the less resistance for the goal selected. • Press “ CONSTANT WATTS ” • Enter your desired “ WATT ” using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER (25 – 525). • Enter your desired “ TIME ” using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER. • Enter your “ WEIGHT ” using the ARROW KEYS or NUMBER KEYPAD and press ENTER.

7. 3 CHAPTER 2: P reventative m aintenance 2.3 CARE AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS In order to maximize life span, and minimize down time, all MATRIX equipment requires regular cleaning, and maintenance items performed on a scheduled basis. This section contains detailed instructions on how to perform these items, the frequency of which they should be done, and a check list to sign off each time service is completed for a specific machine. Some basic tools and supplies will be necessary to perform these tasks which include (but may not be limited to): Metric Allen wrenches #2 Phillips head screwdriver Adjustable wrench Torque wrench (capability to read foot lbs, and inch lbs) Lint free cleaning cloths Teflon based spray lubricant Mild, water soluble, detergent – such as “Simple Green”, or other Matrix approved product Teflon based spray lubricant such as “Super Lube”, or other Matrix approved product Vacuum cleaner w/extendable hose and crevasse tool attachment Please find the worksheet sample for our equipment provided in this manual and make copies as needed, keeping them up to date as the required service/ maintenance items are performed. It is critical that you also log the accumulated (total) amount of miles or running hours on the equipment each time service or maintenance is performed. You may periodically see addendums to this document, as the Matrix Technical Support Team identifies items that require specific attention, the latest version will always be available on the Matrix website, matrixfitness.com DAILY MAINTENANCE ITEMS 1) Clean entire machine use water and mild detergent such as “Simple Green”, or other Matrix approved solution (cleaning agents should be alcohol and ammonia free). QUARTERLY MAINTENANCE ITEMS 1) Check all connecting joint areas for tightness of bolt assemblies. 2) Ensure that there is little, or no free play at all joint assemblies once bolts have been tightened. Installation of washer kits may be required if free play does not come out from tightening bolts. 3) Remove plastic covers, and lubricate ball joint where the Link Arm and Handlebar join together. A grease gun, with a needle fitting adapter is required for this (Matrix recommends using Superlube brand grease with PTFE {Teflon} additive). 4) Remove plastic covers, and lubricate Acme screw on left and right incline motors (Matrix recommends using Superlube brand grease with PTFE {Teflon} additive). See section 9.11 for incline motor access instructions. 2.4 PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST Facility: MAKE: MODEL: S/N LOCATION: TECHNICIAN: DATE: Inspect power cords Check E-stop cord/button Vacuum/clean under cover Check motor drive belt Check running belt Flip/replace deck De-wax rollers Notes/comments Check resistance system Lubricate pivot points Check connecting joints Remove covers, check belts Check pedal & crank Check/lube seat adjustment Verify electronics operation Clean/lube guide rods Inspect belt/cable assy.

12. 8 CHAPTER 5: U sing t he a 3 x c onsole 5.1 CONSOLE DESCRIPTION All programs follow the same basic steps. • Select program key. • Enter user information (age, weight). • Choose workout time. • Choose resistance level. • Select START . Program selection can be changed at any time during a workout. This means that the user can switch between RANDOM , MANUAL or several programs without losing accumulated workout time or data. • However, the console must be reset before starting FIT TEST , TARGET HR , AND CONSTANT WATTS programs. 5.2 INCLINE FUNCTION (ASCENT TRAINER ONLY) Changing the incline will produce a wide variety of challenging workouts. At 0 incline, you can expect a smooth, easy and low-impact pedal motion. At higher incline levels, longer stride and higher step-up challenge the user with a more focused glute workout. • How the incline works A3x - by pressing the UP elevation arrow key(in white) both incline arms pivot towards the rear of the machine. This increases both stride length and step on height. • Incline settings - There are 20 incline levels. One key press will change the incline in 5% increments. The console will disply 0-100, which represents total percentage of incline. LED display 25 is 25% of total incline, 50 is 50% of the total incline and so on. Upper LED changes on each key press, showing incline changes.

10. 6 CHAPTER 4: U sing t he e 3 xc c onsole 4.5 FIT TEST This test measures cardiovascular fitness and proves an estimated sub-maximal VO2 result. It is based on power output according to ACSM standards and was developed by the Cooper Institute (© www.cooperinstitute.org) User RPMs must remain between 60-80 RPM during the test. The test will end when the user can no longer maintain this speed. Use of a heart rate strap is optional but provides more data. The test starts at a low intensity level and gradually increases in intensity (difficulty) every 2 minutes. As it increases, the user must maintain 60- 80RPM to advance to the next level. The test could take upwards of 30+ minutes for very fit individuals. Once the test ends a recovery period (cool down) will begin and the user’s results are calculated and displayed. Results are based on the following: 10-20% - Well Below Average 30-40% - Below Average 50% - Average 60-70% - Above Average 80-90% - Well Above Average Percentile Values for Maximal Aerobic Power Age Percentile 20-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60+ Men 90 51.4 50.4 48.2 45.3 42.5 80 48.2 46.8 44..1 41.0 38.1 70 46.8 44.6 41.8 38.5 35.3 60 44.2 42.4 39.9 36.7 33.6 50 42.5 41.0 38.1 35..2 31.8 40 41.0 38.9 36.7 33.8 39.2 30 39.5 37.4 35.1 32.3 28.7 20 37.1 35.4 33.0 30.2 26.5 10 34.5 32.5 30.9 28.0 23.1 Women 90 44.2 41.0 39.5 35.2 35.2 80 41.0 38.6 36.3 32.3 31.2 70 38.1 36.7 33.8 30.9 29.4 60 36.7 34.6 32.3 29.4 27.2 50 35.2 33.8 30.9 28.2 25.8 40 33.8 32.3 29.5 26.9 24.5 30 32.3 30.5 28.3 25.5 23.8 20 30.6 28.7 26.5 24.3 22.8 10 28.4 26.5 25.1 22.3 20.8 A3x_E3xc_rev1.7.indd 6 8/6/10 2:33 PM
