Setting your workout preferences

When you sign up for a workout series, the workouts will automatically load on your account. They can be accessed from your machine, tablet, or smartphone on the scheduled day. Did you know that you can decide which days you’d like to schedule workouts in the series?

You can update your workout preferences right in your account. Here’s how to access this information:

  • Go to iFIT.com/login.
  • Enter the email address and password for your account.
  • Hover your mouse over your name in the top, right-hand corner of the screen.
  • In the drop-down menu, click on “Settings.”
  • In the left column, under “Preferences,” click on “Workouts.”
  • Check or uncheck the days of the week you’d like to schedule workouts.
  • You can also update your preferences for missed workouts.
  • Use the drop-down menu to select “Reschedule” or “Skip” missed workouts.
  • Reschedule will simply push the missed workout to the next day.
  • Skip will skip the missed workout entirely.

Adding secondary users to your account

If you have an iFIT Family membership, you can add up to 4 secondary users onto your account. Here’s how to add secondary users:

  • Go to iFIT.com/login.
  • Enter the email address and password for your account.
  • Hover your mouse over your name in the top, right-hand corner of the screen.
  • In the drop-down menu, click on “Settings.”
  • In the left column, click on “Membership Plan.”
  • Click the blue plus sign to add secondary users.
  • On the next screen, click the blue plus sign to send and invite users.
  • Simply enter the user’s email address, then click “Send.”
  • An invitation will be emailed to your secondary users to create their iFIT account.

Getting to know the Dashboard on your machine

When it comes to using your iFIT-enabled equipment, think of your machine’s Dashboard as “command central.” Once you log in to your account, the Dashboard will populate with your scheduled workouts, suggestions for workouts based on your recent activity, and it also allows you to explore new workouts. 

The Dashboard lets you search for workouts using criteria like trainer, workout type, and even workout length. You can browse the Library to find your next workout, join a series, and even join a Live Event.

If you have signed up for a workout series, the next scheduled workout will appear first on the screen, so you can pick up right where you left off. It will also populate with other workouts you might like, based on your recent activity, so you can try something new!
