Five new consoles that range from basic LED designs to touchscreen interfaces that mimic popular operating systems are all compatible with the new cardio series.

“The right technology is more than just the finishing touch,” said Andrew Kolman, senior global director, technology and business development, for Matrix. “It really dictates what kind of experience the user is going to have, and it can change the way facilities manage their machines and interact with their members.”
