Viewing Live Workout on an External Monitor or TV

 

Below are instructions for how to view your workout on an external monitor (iPad, Laptop, tablet, TV) while you're working out.

iFit Live Workout runs on a computer using a browser, thus if you want to view on a TV, it would need to be connected to a laptop or PC. If using a TV, turn it on, turn on the connected computer, then:

Get on your machine, login, select your map and START your workout.

On your iPad, Laptop, etc go to https://www.ifit.com/live-Workout (good idea to Bookmark this) OR go to iFit.com, at the top right in your menu bar you will see the "Live Workout" appear. Click on it.

NOTE: You will only see the workout once the machine has started.

After you are on the Live Workout page, you should see something like this:

How to Change your Speed or Incline on iFit

Your machine should allow you to override the speed and incline no matter what workout you are doing. For this example, we are showing you how to adjust your speed and incline when using an iFit map workout.

Your machine may look a bit differently, but should have capabilities to adjust the incline and speed, as you can see on my NordicTrack C2150 Treadmill pictured below.

On the left are the incline settings from -3% decline to 15% incline. Then I can also set the incline/decline in smaller increments by incline/decline button and up and down buttons. Your machine will automatically adjust to the inclines and declines of the map terrain you are doing.

On the right are the speed settings from 1 - 12 mph. Again the speed button at the bottom allows me to adjust the speed in smaller increments.

You can also click "Stop" to take a break or stop the machine. When you click the machine, you will only have 9:59 minutes to take a break before the machine logs you out of that workout.

COOL TIP!! If you have a specific speed you want to run - say 6.3 mph - very quickly hit the 6 then the 3 and it will go to 6.3 MPH!

Once you override the incline settings of a mapped workout, you will see the "Follow Workout" button appear on the left side. If you want to follow the incline and decline of the mapped route, simply click the "Follow Workout" button the screen and the button will go away.

How to Draw an iFit Map

 

These are BASIC instructions for how to get started drawing a simple iFit map.

1. Go to www.ifit.com and login to your account.


2. In the top menu, hover over the CREATE button and click "Map Based Workout"


3. Type a Workout Name

4. Choose the Activity Type: Run or Cycle
NOTE: The term "Run"applies to walking, treadmill workouts, elliptical, incline trainers. The term "Cycle" is for all bikes and TDF bikes.

5. You can Schedule a date and include more options on this page if you'd like or leave it as is. Click NEXT

6. Enter Search Location where you want to draw your map (ie: Kona, Hawaii) and hit enter. You will see the location appear on the map to your right.


7. For beginners, I recommend having "Click to Road" ON. This will make drawing much easier and quicker as the route you click will snap to the main routes/roads.

I also recommend having the "Street View Availability" ON. This ensures you will have street view as long as you are drawing your route on areas highlighted with blue. NOTE: Google has NOT captured all roads and trails.

Click on a road to make your starting point of your route.

How to draw an iFit Maps

8. Zoom in or out using the + or - and the arrow keys on the map to navigate in other directions. In the bottom right, you should be able to see the street view as your drawing. If there is no image showing, this means there is no street view available.

Beneath the map, you can view the elevation of your route as you are drawing.


9. Keep clicking and you will now see a light blue path where the route is. In the top area, you will see the total miles, elevation, estimated time and calories as you add to the route.


10. Save Route. It will process and allow you to Schedule Workout on your computer and thus on your iFit exercise equipment.
