iFit® is the first ever technology to unify your fitness activities at home, in the club, and outside, all with a single login. With over 15 million miles logged on fitness equipment in 2013, iFit® is continually growing and evolving to create the most interactive workout experience possible.

iFit’s complete approach to fitness has expanded to an entirely new way to work out: with Internet-connected fitness equipment, mobile apps, and now wearable devices.

At the iFit® booth, CES showgoers can ride the ProForm Tour De France bike and walk or run on the ProForm Boston Marathon treadmill to experience iFit® in person, including watching Google Street View™ as the fitness equipment inclines and declines to match the geo-tags in a mapped route.

The iFit® booth has two of the mega-trends that Consumer Electronic Association forecasts for 2014: Wearable health and fitness and the Internet of Things. The CEA predicts the market for personal health and wellness products to grow 142% by 2018 to $8 billion. Running, walking and treadmill activity are the top three participation activities in the 2013 Tracking the Fitness Movement, published by the Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA).

Everywhere You Go (#iFitEverywhere @iFit): The new iFit® Active wearable band is the enhanced experience of iFit®, as it goes everywhere with you. The iFit® Active band is the only one to automatically switch settings from awake to asleep, based on customized settings in the iFit® Active app. By personalizing sleep, workout and wake up schedules, the iFit® Active wearable will automatically log all activity and sleep, without manually switching modes.

All your activity, distance, steps, calories burned, and sleep patterns are automatically recorded on your iFit® Active device and synced to the iFit® Active app via Bluetooth® 4.0. Input your caloric intake with the touch of a button or log daily nutrition details through the smartphone app. The iFit® Active app automatically updates to a single user login at iFit.com.

Wear the iFit® Active band as a watch, clip or pod for your pocket. Sizing is as easy to adjust as a watch strap and can be customized with a variety of colors. The default display for the iFit® Active band includes two metrics: time of day and user’s choice of distance, calories and steps.

The iFit® Active tracker retails for $129 and will be available in Spring 2014 and includes the iFit Active app, available on both iOS and Android.

Everywhere Inside: Through iFit’s partnership with Google Maps™, create a route anywhere in the world and internet-connected, iFit-enabled fitness equipment will automatically adjust the incline and decline to the match the geo-tags in the Google Maps. Enjoy watching Street View on iFit-enabled fitness equipment with tablet consoles, or watch Google Street View on your tablet or internet TV.

Pre-mapped routes at iFit® include all 21 stages of the 2012 and 2013 Tour de France and the top marathons including Boston, Chicago, London, New York and more. iFit® also has extensive training programs for running 5K, 10K, Half and Marathon from beginner to advanced.

iFit® provides workouts tailored to your fitness and weight loss goals, created by America’s top trainers, including exclusive training content from Jillian Michaels.

iFit® tracks every workout: speed, incline, decline, distance, workout time, run pace, calories burned, heart rate and watts. Your stats automatically upload to your profile at iFit.com from iFit-enabled machines with built-in Wi-Fi. Workouts history is ready to view anytime, anywhere and workout highlights can be viewed on iFit® Active wearable.

Everywhere Outside: GPS-based iFit® apps are the only fitness apps capable of converting your outdoor workouts to iFit® workouts for fitness machines. Run or ride outside, upload to your iFit® account, and then repeat your route on iFit-enabled equipment. You’ll feel every hill or dip, as if you were outside, because iFit® technology will automatically adjust the incline and decline to mimic your route. Watch Google Street View on your console of the same route.

The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
