New Live-Streaming Workouts At Home With ProForm And iFit
As you safely practice social distancing at home, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be social. Humans being a social species, it can actually have a negative impact on our health if we practice chronic social isolation. According to a 2015 study, chronic social isolation increases our risk of mortality. The researchers found that people with strong social relationships have a 50% greater likelihood of survival than those with weaker social relationships. More research needs to be conducted; however, the information presented expresses the importance for humans to understand that social relationships influence the health outcomes of adults and should take this as seriously as other factors that affect mortality.
With understanding this information, we believe it’s come at no better time than a platform that not only helps you to improve your physical health but also your mental health with live interaction. With a combination of award winning trainers and olympic athletes, you have the ability to text your iFit trainer at the beginning of your live workout and they’ll answer your questions during the live class. You’re even able to interact with other members in the same workout even if you’re a world away from each other. Why not create a challenge with your family and friends for another iFit on-demand workout and make it a little friendly competition? You can’t get more personal and interactive than that!
Along with its personal touch making social interactions more convenient and safe, live workouts on iFit hold amazing features that you won’t find anywhere else. Let’s take a closer look at the live workout features and how you can take advantage of them.
iFit Live Workout Features
Live-Streaming Workouts Outdoors
Staying cooped up indoors isn’t necessarily the healthiest option for us while we quarantine either. Getting enough vitamin D from sunlight is good for your bones and immune system––even enhancing your absorption of certain minerals, like calcium and phosphorus.
In order to capitalize on as much of the health benefits you can get while staying safely distant, iFit has created live workouts to be done outdoors. Stay entertained and challenged as your trainer takes you through a workout outdoors through the surrounding areas of their own home––giving you an opportunity to learn more about your trainer on a personal level by getting a glimpse into their lives and areas.
Chat Live With iFit Trainers
By taking a step further into getting more personal with your trainer, iFit allows you to personally text your trainer before your workout starts and they will personally respond to your questions during the live workout session.
ProForm Automatic Machine Adjustments
Forget adjusting your machine to fit the workout with ProForm’s Automatic Machine Adjustment feature. The trainer guiding you through an iFit workout will automatically adjust your ProForm machine to follow the workout’s terrain. All you have to do is show up and give it all you’ve got!
Live Workouts And On-Demand Workouts
Who doesn’t like having options? Especially when your day is already jam packed with other responsibilities. iFit gives you the opportunity to join in a live class the day of or schedule for later in the week, so you can workout on your own time. Simply access live workouts on your ProForm treadmill, bike, or on the iFit app under the selection “Right Now” on the iFit leaderboard or access unlimited on-demand workouts at the time that best suits you.
Getting Started With Live Workouts
Now, getting started with iFit live workouts is as simple as selecting ‘On Air’ on your ProForm machine console or tablet. You will be taken to the iFit live schedule where you can see the available trainers and workout types for that day, including the following 6 days. Once you select a workout, be prepared because you’re never going to look at home workouts the same again.
