Expand Your Mind And Health With iFit Global Workouts
iFit takes you above and beyond your borders to the streets of Italy, the beaches of Costa Rica, the waters of Antarctica, and the global wonders of Machu Picchu as you workout on your ProForm machine in your home. You will be physically challenged with the amazing features of ProForm equipment; however, you may be surprised to hear that you will also benefit on a psychological level as well.
In a 2014 study, William W. Maddux discovered students having an enhanced capacity and willingness of holding multiple, conflicting viewpoints in mind at the same time from experiencing “multicultural engagement”. This multicultural engagement he speaks of results from students’ adaption and absorbed knowledge about new cultures. Students’ interactions with other cultures helped them grow a new understanding than they had never had before, which has further led students to benefit from increased job opportunities.
“When individuals are exposed to the same multicultural environment, it is their psychological approach and engagement with different cultures that determines growth in integrative complexity and tangible increases in professional opportunities.”William W. Maddux
Another study proves to show the same kind of results. Indiana University psychologist, Lile Jia, conducted a study that viewed two groups of participants. One group of Indiana University students were told that the task at hand was to create a list of as many methods of transportation as they could think of for students who were studying abroad in Greece and the other group of students were assigned to create a separate list of transportation methods for those living locally in Indiana.
Results came to be in favor of the students who listed one-third more methods of transportation in Greece in comparison to the other group that were collectively listing transportation methods for local students. It is said that this study challenged the students to think more creatively and more originality for foreign transportation methods, as well as showed improvement in their problem solving skills as well.
“Creative generation profits from greater spatial distance.”Lile Jia
This is a great example that many of the psychological and creative benefits we get from traveling don’t require an individual to physically travel at all. In saying that, iFit brings the world to your ProForm machine without you ever having to leave your home, yet still providing you with the opportunity to reap the cognitive benefits of travel.
So, why not list all the places you’ve wanted to travel to and find them on your iFit account. If you’re struggling to narrow down your travel list, here is a quick glimpse of magnificent places you can travel to and learn about with iFit:
