What is iFit??

What is iFit and how does it work? I just bought an elliptical machine from craigslist and it is iFit compatible. What does that mean? How does it work?

You could check out Just a crazy thought.
It refers to their workout cards

I checked out the website, I'm just not getting it. I thought it was something that you downloaded to the piece of equipment. Otherwise, wouldn't ALL treadmills, ellipticals, and other machines be ifit compatible???

No wonder people get frustrated here....

iFit is an iPhone application. You can only use it if you have an iPhone. The application tracks your calories intake and output. The treadmill is likely compatible in that it will give your iPhone ap the information from your workouts so you can track calories burned while walking/running the treadmill.

I checked out the website because I was intrigued, and it really isn't that clear (hello, 11:50!). It looks like you can just get the workout cards that fit into the you really need an iPhone (or an iPod)? I'm honestly not sure myself. The website isn't overly clear with their instructions.

I looked on the website too, and it was confusing, but I did discover that you do not have to have an iPhone, that is why they have the cards. What i have read so far is that you can purchase the cards with pre-loaded workouts, or you can download a route from anywhere in the world, via google maps, and then when you put it in your exercise equipment it simulates the route by adjusting the tension and incline. It advertises that it helps you achieve your fitness goal, so I don't know if it has a food tracker element or not, I haven't seen that, but I am still checking it out too, because i have an eliptical machine and a treadmill that are both iFit compatible.

For the person who suggested to check out, just a crazy thought, why bother posting that useless suggestion, if your going to be an ass, just save us all the time and bypass posting anything.

Since iFit is only Apple product compatible it does not suit everyone. My Elyptical
has it and I cannot use it. I do have S-Health on my Android, and you are able to choose which workouts you do, then hit start and it will time it. My only issue is that it does an average work out for an Elyptical, and my machine has some pretty intense calorie burners-they never match up. Just something to keep in mind.
