CHAPTER 2: IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
2.2 ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
The Matrix Ascent Trainer can now be self powered, but it recommended that the 7xe version of the Ascent Trainer be plugged in. If the A7xe
is left in self powered mode, it will take approximately 30 seconds for the screen to load prior to every workout. It is recommended that the unit
be plugged in for at least 4 hours after initial installation to charge the battery prior to using the self powered feature. NOTE: If an add on TV
(using a bracket) or Virtual Active is added to the unit, it must be plugged in, or the TV or VA will not operate correctly. If the Ascent Trainer will
be plugged in, follow the requirements below.
MATRIX 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.
For your safety and Ascent Trainer performance, the ground on this circuit must be non-looped. Please refer to NEC article 210-21 and 210-23. Your
Ascent Trainer is provided with a power cord with a plug listed below and requires the listed outlet. Any alterations of this power cord could void
all warranties for this product. Multiple Ascent Trainers can be powered on one dedicated circuit. (3 units per 15 Amp and 4 units per 20 Amp
dedicated circuit.)
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS:
The Matrix Ascent Trainer must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric
current to reduce the risk of electric shock. The Ascent Trainer 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
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 an electrician
CONSOLE POWER
The Matrix Ascent Trainer console has a battery that makes it self powered. This means that even if the unit is not plugged in, the console
may still have power for up to 12 hours. If the console power needs to be reset or turned off, press and hold the CHANNEL UP and CHANNEL
DOWN keys for 3-5 seconds until the console turns off. The console power will also need to be reset if settings are changed in Manager,
Engineering, or Service Modes.

CHAPTER 4: CONSOLE OVERLAY AND WORKOUT DESCRIPTION
4.2 WORKOUT SETUP STEPS
To set up a workout, press the touch screen over the program you
would like to use and then follow the prompts to begin your workout.
GO - Press to immediately begin a workout. Workout, resistance
level, and time will automatically go to default settings. Pressing GO
will not prompt user for age, weight, or level settings.
MANUAL - Manual allows the user to input more information while
defining their own workout. Calorie expenditure will be more accurate
when inputting information in Manual than by pressing GO.
FAT BURN - Fat burn is a level based program that is designed to
help users burn fat through various resistance level changes.
ROLLING HILLS - The Rolling Hills program is a level based
program that automatically adjusts the resistance level to simulate real
terrain.
INTERVALS - The Intervals program is a level based program that
automatically adjusts the resistance of the machine from low to high
intensity settings at regular intervals.
GLUTE TRAINING WORKOUT - This program was designed
to increase your range of motion and target the thighs and glutes.
By varying a high incline throughout the workout you can engage
significant glute recruitment and enjoy a great workout. You will
be asked to enter in a minimum resistance level and a maximum
resistance level. The maximum resistance is applied at your peaks
and the minimum resistance is applied in the valleys. Choose levels
that are appropriate for you. A great recommended starting point is a
Minimum Resistance Level of 1 and a Maximum Resistance Level of
8. After you are comfortable with this setting, try higher levels for both.
Incline levels cannot be adjusted during this workout as it is an incline
based workout.
FITNESS TEST -The Cooper Fitness 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 60-80
RPM 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 number of stages completed. Incline will not be
adjustable during the test.

CONSTANT WATTS - Constant Watts is a unique program that
allows you to vary your cadence or RPM and the Ascent Trainer's
resistance level will adjust accordingly to your selected goal. The quicker
you pedal, the less resistance for the goal selected.
TARGET HEART RATE - The Matrix Ascent Trainer comes
with standard digital contact heart rate sensors and are POLAR
telemetry compatible. The heart rate control workout mode allows
the user to program their desired heart rate zone, and the Ascent
Trainer will automatically adjust the level based upon the user's heart
rate. The heart rate zone is calculated using the following equation:
(220-Age)8%=target heart rate zone. The user must wear a POLAR
telemetric strap or continually hold onto the contact heart rate grips for
this workout.
Locate the metal sensors on the handlebars of the Ascent Trainer.
Notice that there are two separate pieces of metal on each grip.
You must be making contact with both pieces of each grip to get
an accurate heart rate reading. You can grab these sensors in any
program to view your current heart rate.
