HOW TO SCHEDULE MAPS
- Go to iFit.com and login to your account.
- Return to iRunMaps.com and find the workout you want to add to your iFit machine schedule.
- Click on the name of the map route OR View Details to take you to the details page.
4. Click on the link towards the bottom that starts with http://www.iFit.com...
5. When the new window pops up, click "Schedule Workout" and it will add to your iFit Schedule. Now go to your machine, click the "Maps" button and you'll see the workout you added.
Google has NOT captured street view in all areas. If your workout has been drawn in an area that hasn't had street view captured, it will say something like "No Imagery Here" or "No Street View available here".
These are BASIC instructions for how to view street view on your iFit Compatible (built in screen) equipment.
- Turn on your machine and login
- Click on the Maps button
- Click on the Map Workout you would like to do from your list and begin your route.
- Your equipment has the options of showing Street and Satellite views. It will automatically display Street view, then Satellite view unless you touch the screen and button you want it to lock on. (IE: push the Street button on your touch screen and it will stay on Street View. You can also click the Lock/Unlock button to the right of Satellite to have it lock on whatever view it is currently displaying.
Street View is shown below and is LOCKED so it will display only Street View the entire workout:
Satellite View is shown below:
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:
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.
If you're looking for an exact distance to run, you've come to the right place! iRunMaps allows you to narrow down your search results by using the Filter on the Search page. BUT, did you know you can enter in an EXACT distance and it will also give you the results that way?
Simply go to the Search Page.
Enter in the exact mileage you want to run (IE: 4.2 mi), be sure to input mi after the number.
