Introducing SmartAdjust™: iFit’s New Personalized Workout Experience
At iFit, we’re focused on giving you a truly interactive workout experience. That’s why iFit-enabled equipment automatically adjusts your incline, decline, and resistance during workouts. That experience isn’t just about climbing hills or challenging yourself, however. We’ve extended it to a new, groundbreaking feature called SmartAdjust: our latest tech that tailors your workout to your individual fitness level!
We’ve also introduced another new interactive feature for iFit-enabled treadmills called ActivePulse™ that uses your heart rate to personalize your workout.
What is SmartAdjust?
SmartAdjust automatically scales your workout as you make adjustments to either the speed or incline, so you can always follow along with the trainer—but at your own pace! Say goodbye to those constant manual adjustments; your workout intensity is now calculated automatically, based on your previous workout history. With SmartAdjust, you will experience a revolutionary workout experience that is tailored specifically to your fitness level!
SmartAdjust is not currently available for manual workouts or Live Workouts.
Ready to try SmartAdjust? Join iFit Trainer Gideon Akande for an introduction to this new feature in the Intro to SmartAdjust Workout.
Equipment required for SmartAdjust:
Treadmill (Using an iFit-enabled treadmill or your machine that connects to a tablet via the iFit app. This feature is not currently available on phones.)
How do I try out the new features?
First, verify that you are on version 2.6.50 or later. If you are on this version or later, you can now try out these new features!
For details on how to check your current app version and steps to update your machine to the latest version, please follow these instructions.
To try out SmartAdjust, select any treadmill workout from the Dashboard or Library.
Once the workout begins, you’ll receive a trainer notification during your warmup, informing you that we’ve taken your past workouts into account to craft a personalized session for you today.
You can turn off SmartAdjust at any time by tapping the screen, then switching SmartAdjust off in the bottom, right corner of your screen.
If you turn SmartAdjust off, you will return to following the trainer-defined workout.
If you make adjustments to speed or incline with SmartAdjust and ActivePulse off, you will be in control of your speed and incline. You can click the “Follow Trainer” button at any time to return to the trainer’s prescribed workout.
You can now define a maximum speed in the “In Workout” section of your “Settings.” This will limit the top speed of your treadmill, but you can override it at any time during your workout.
While SmartAdjust is on, feel free to change the speed, incline or decline of your workout, so it feels comfortable for your fitness level and pace.
Over time, SmartAdjust learns from these actions and caters the workout to your fitness level, balancing it with your trainer’s instructions.
In the “Personalized Training” section of your “In-Workout Settings,” you can set the starting state and max speed.
- Tap on the side drawer icon in the upper left of your screen.
- Tap on “Settings.”
- Tap on “In Workout.”
- In the “Personalized Training” section of settings, you can turn on or off SmartAdjust using the toggle. This will determine the starting state of this feature. If you turn the feature off in settings, when you start your next workout, SmartAdjust will be turned off.
- You can also set a Max Treadmill Speed. By setting this, your speed will not automatically increase above this speed during a workout when SmartAdjust or ActivePulse are enabled. You can override this at any time during your workout.
We’re always working to improve your workouts by raising the bar to give you a truly personalized experience. We hope you enjoy this incredible, new feature as you work to achieve your fitness goals with iFit!
