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.

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

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.

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.
