Matrix Fitness has launched its Sprint 8 GX programme, combining the scientifically validated Sprint 8 sprint-intensity protocol with explosive lifts.

Sprint 8 GX is the result of a decade of research into the effects of sprint intensity cardio. It combines this with a strength training component and mobility module, blended into an instructor-led exercise experience.

Steve Barrett, director of global group education and training at Matrix Fitness explains: “Tested, proven and exclusive to Matrix Fitness cardio equipment, Sprint 8 GX produces significant results that traditional cardio workouts can’t match. Regardless of whether a user is striving to tone or build lean muscles, results are real and tangible.”

Pre-programmed
“Matrix Fitness cardio equipment is pre-programmed with the Sprint 8 GX protocol, from which a user selects their level (1-20) and performs a maximum of eight sprint intervals, followed by a specific sequence of free-weight and bodyweight movements which recruit and develop all three types of muscle fibres,” he says.

“The physical benefits are available to anyone who follows the Sprint 8 protocol alone, however, we established during the development of Sprint 8 GX that the collective group experience of doing this activity with others raises the focus and performance of everyone in the group.”

Two features set the protocol apart from other programmes. The group experience happens on the cardio floor and can incorporate a wide range of cardio equipment.

The elements also have progressive levels which enable complete beginners to participate alongside elite athletes.

Barrett adds: “I’ve worked with elite athletes and those just beginning their fitness journey in the same group, the beginners have the option to work on the cardio equipment that suits them, while the high achievers can ramp up the challenge by varying cardio equipment.

“The workout is scalable and has year-round appeal, designed to ensure its longevity in gyms,” he says.

Sprint 8 GX has been created to be a unique addition to a gym timetable. Aimed at those who enjoy knowing they’re doing a workout designed to achieve their fitness goals – and more. It’s inspiring, intense and unlike anything else.
