Not all fitness content is equal

During the iFit workouts, the on-screen coaches aren't just giving instructions; they’re delivering other educational insights
– Tony Ali, UK Country Manager
With the launch of 22 SERIES, a pioneering, new cardio line powered by iFit® – the world’s leading on-demand fitness streaming platform – Freemotion Fitness aims to change the way we think about – and deliver – fitness content to truly engage members.

In the past, we’ve used content as a distraction to stop members from thinking about their workouts. We put TVs on treadmills, then expected our members to come in, turn on the entertainment, and work out. We hoped – and we believed – that “entertainment” was going to deliver a great experience.

“We now know that entertainment is not enough,” begins Tony Ali, UK Country Manager for Freemotion Fitness. “What we’re trying to do at Freemotion – and what we must continue doing as an industry – is drive engagement and connection, not distraction, through content.”

So, how can this be achieved?

“We live in a world of content, but not all content is equal,” says Ali. “To truly engage members long-term, content must be both interactive and educational. It should be more than an “instruction video” or a “follow along” and it needs to be meaningful, adding clear value to the member’s workout and fitness journey.”

The unique style of virtual coaching provided by iFit – along with the interactive, auto-adjusting technology of the Freemotion equipment which controls the speed, incline/decline, and/or resistance in sync with the coach's commands and on-screen terrain – is what separates the 22 SERIES from other content-driven cardio equipment.

During the iFit workouts, the on-screen coaches aren't just giving instructions; they’re delivering other educational insights. They describe the purpose behind the workout and how the user will progress with each session. They share interesting information about the workout location and genuinely interact with the environment they’re in. Combined, this unique, interactive, and immersive experience makes the user feel as though they’re actually inside the workout, living every footstep or pedal stroke; completely immersed and fully engaged.

By mimicking those true-to-life interactions, iFit workouts build deeper connections with members to keep them motivated and coming back for more. Better still, as iFit workouts can be completed in the gym on the 22 SERIES or at home through the iFit app or the member’s own iFit-powered equipment, this provides operators with the perfect solution to “stay connected” with members, both during the pandemic and in the years ahead.

The 22 SERIES features industry-leading products including the REFLEX™ Treadmill, Incline Trainer, and CoachBike™ and will be available from late 2020. To learn more, visit:
