NordicTrack & iFit

Interactive “connected fitness” comes built into NordicTrack incline trainers, treadmills, rowers, strength towers, ellipticals, and exercise bikes. That means workouts are led by a coach onscreen, often set in epic destinations around the globe. The machines adjust speed, incline, and other factors to simulate treks, river rows, and mountain climbs.

We tested the Commercial 2950 treadmill this year with iFit virtual coaching and came away hooked. Lush scenes shot around the world display on the treadmill’s 22-inch screen. Budget one of these for a loved one and they’ll be fit, coached, and engaged as New Year calories are burned, the miles roll by, and they get started on next year’s adventures.
