The Great Wall of China, the French Riviera and the banks of Lake Como may be some of the most beautiful places in the world to run – but without a private jet or a small fortune, they’re a little tricky to access every day.
However, now thanks to iFit Live™, powered by Google Maps™, exercise lovers can transport themselves to a different running location every single day – and all from the comfort of their own home.
iFit Live™ is the first ever product to merge fitness equipment with Google Maps™ technology and works with compatible NordicTrack and Proform equipment from the ICON Health and Fitness range.
Fully Interactive Fitness Experience
Plot your ideal running course with iFit Live™ – this incredible feature provides exciting new opportunities for you to tour the world, run and train for races, whether alone or competitively against others. iFit Live™can also replace the need for a personal trainer as the software showcases a diet management tool and customised workouts.
iFit Live™ helps you feel like you are really running down a route as it automatically adjusts inclines and resistance using Google Maps data. From September some compatible models will also feature an AndroidTM Web Browser, allowing you to view each route in satellite or street view. For other models, simply attach your laptop, iPad or iPhone to the machine’s built-in shelf.
The pioneering iFit Live™ technology is controlled through your home computer, iPod or iPad via wireless technology. Create your own profile page at www.ifit.com where you can build your ultimate work out or run, monitor your diet and lifestyle and chose from workout programmes specific to your fitness goal. Profile pages are synced to your compatible machine so your progress cleverly updates automatically, pre and post work out.
Train with Experts
iFit Live’s™ work out programmes have been created in conjunction with America’s Toughest Trainer, Jillian Michaels. Choose a progressive workout program from four different categories – Lose Weight, Power Walking, Get Fit and Performance. You can also select 15 different intensity levels, controlled speeds and inclines. Plus, you’ll hear Jillian coaching you through each workout, giving you the motivation you need to keep going and get results.
Compete With Others
iFit Live™ also allows you to experience the excitement and challenge of a real competitive race. Simply select a race that you want to join and choose the day you would like to race – it will then be automatically added to your workout schedule. As you’re racing, iFit Live™ will show you the race map and different coloured runner markers to represent your time, the fastest time and the average time. After you’ve completed the race, compare your ranking and results with other iFit Live™ competitors.
To keep your fitness routine on track when you’re on the go, you can also download the iFit Live™ iPhone app. This time saving app allows you to quickly enter daily nutrition data when eating out, and record daily exercise activities such as walking to work.
