Johnson Health Tech was founded in 1975 in Taichung, Taiwan. Johnson Health Tech started its business model as an original equipment manufacturer for multiple brands in the fitness equipment industry. In 2001, Johnson Health Tech established Matrix Fitness, a brand positioned for the global commercial segment.
Matrix Fitness is the industry’s fastest growing manufacturer of commercial fitness equipment and a favorite choice of fitness facilities worldwide. We have grown to be one of the leading fitness equipment brands in the global commercial segment through new product development, continuous innovation, strategic partnerships, distribution excellence, superior customer tech support and forward-thinking business solutions for our customers.
Headquartered just outside Madison, Wisconsin, our North American office houses our US business operation, plus global marketing, product design, research and development. JHTNA operates East Coast, Central and West Coast warehouses that are strategically positioned to minimize the time it takes to deliver our products to our customers. Also located in near Milwaukee, WI is our advanced strength production facility that manufactures racks, free weights and plate-loaded equipment. When facilities choose Matrix, they get more than the world’s finest equipment. They get a robust product portfolio, connected technology, facility planning, marketing support, industry-leading warranties, unmatched customer support and a partner who will be there every step of the way. Together, there’s no detail of their facility we can’t refine, reimagine or reinvent.
Matrix has a complete portfolio of products to help you deliver a uniform fitness experience. All of our industry-leading designs are intuitive and easy-to-operate. Familiar touchpoints across products reduces a user’s learning curve so they can easily get on and go.
Striking the perfect balance between engineering and aesthetics, our treadmills attract more attention and require less maintenance than anything you put next to them. Exclusive features like our Ultimate Deck that offers over 25,000 miles of maintenance-free performance and our Dynamic Response Drive System that provides the smoothest, most consistent performance on the market mean that our treadmills are built better from head to toe.
Sleek-yet-robust design offers whisper-quiet operation, a smoother stroke, easy adjustment and repeatable resistance levels to create an unmatched rowing experience. A versatile, exceptionally comfortable design makes it easy to switch between speed work, distance rowing and high-intensity interval training, and accurate, complete data feedback will help your users measure improvement to get the most out of their precious workout time.
Performance, comfort and styling make our cycles a favorite for members, while easy use and streamlined maintenance make them a top choice for owners, trainers and service techs. And with self-powered options, you can place them anywhere in your facility.
