NordicTrack iFIT and Peloton iFIT

nordictrack ifit

iFIT is a platform integrated into NordicTrack treadmills, exercise bikes, and rowers that allows you to follow workouts led by world-class trainers. It also automatically adjusts your machine’s settings as you follow on-screen instructions.

GGR tested four NordicTrack machines and the iFit platform and found it easy to set up and connect. It’s compatible with most major workout equipment brands.

iFit Family

While Peloton offers an app that doesn’t connect to fitness equipment, iFIT works with NordicTrack and ProForm treadmills and bikes. The iFIT app is fully interactive and connects to iFIT-enabled machines via the touchscreen console or Bluetooth connectivity.

With iFIT, you can follow trainers and instructors through studio workouts in the comfort of your home. The iFIT Library has more than 140 workouts, from short 10-minute videos to hour-long classes.

The SmartAdjust feature on iFIT-enabled NordicTrack equipment automatically adjusts the speed, incline and resistance of the machine for you, so you can focus on following your trainer and getting the most out of your workout.

iFIT+ is included with all new 2021 NordicTrack commercial ellipticals and treadmills, as well as many 2021 residential treadmills (C Series, Desks). Most of these include one year of iFit membership for free. iFIT+ is also available on select 2020 NordicTrack treadmills and ellipticals, such as the X14i Incline Trainer and T Series EXP7i.

iFit Global

The iFit Global is a trainer-led streaming workout app that works with treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, and rowers from NordicTrack, FreeMotion, Weider, and Matrix. It also works with other Bluetooth-enabled equipment, including home gyms. The app features a library of virtual classes in locations around the world. The classes range from mental health and recovery to yoga, strength, and HIIT.

The iFit Global app features an expansive collection of classes led by world-class trainers and fitness professionals. The classes are filmed indoors and outdoors, so you can get a sense of being in the gym or at the beach. It also features a large library of different classes, which are updated daily. The iFit app is available on both desktop and mobile devices. It is a little clunky to use on mobile, but it works well with nordictrack ifit. It is also compatible with other Bluetooth heart rate monitors, including the iFit SmartBeat forearm heart rate monitor.

iFit Trainers

iFit Trainers are virtual instructors that lead workouts for NordicTrack treadmills, bikes and rowers. The app includes a huge library of trainer-led classes that are designed to work with different types of fitness equipment. For example, if you have a X32i Incline trainer, your machine will automatically adjust its speed and incline as the instructor cues to match the class.

The iFit app also features destination workouts that take you to exotic locations around the world and allow the instructor to control your equipment. iFit also includes workouts that focus on strength training and mindfulness.

iFit is one of the best online experiences for people who prefer to workout with coaches. It has been around for a while and has been improved over the years. It is a great alternative to Peloton and has an advantage over other apps that work with at-home fitness equipment. The iFit app is free with NordicTrack treadmills, but it requires a subscription to use the iFit Trainers and other online features.

iFit Trainer App

iFit Trainer App is an interactive fitness program that streams trainer-led virtual workouts through the internet to treadmills, stationary bikes, rowers and ellipticals from NordicTrack, ProForm, FreeMotion and Weider. It offers a library of more than 16,000 on-demand classes that range from yoga and mental health to HIIT cardio and strength workouts.

Using the SmartAdjust feature that’s built into NordicTrack equipment, the app automatically adjusts your speed and incline in real time to mimic instructors around the globe. The workouts can also take your past performance into account to make them more challenging for you.

The iFit Trainer App features studio workouts and destination workouts as well as a variety of other types of classes, including HIIT, barre, and plyometrics. The workouts are filmed all over the world, and the app features closed captioning. There’s also a global workouts feature that allows you to virtually run the Alps or bike in Moab, and your machine will change its settings to match the terrain.
