Comments: This product is awesome. We bought it from Sears and had it installed and delivered yesterday. I bought the ifit module and was able to set it up in about half an hour. It was able to access internet and then we had to connect it to the machine and let the firmware update happen. That took 2 hours. We bought the ifit live module from Sears for 129$ inlcuding the module price plus a one year subscription. Then we accessed ifit live website, adn register the ifit module. My husband is 220 pounds and plans to lose about 70 pounds.

My husband then did a 30 minute Yosemite park trail walk. The audiostrider pro is an awesome machine with controls at the finger tips, and an incline of 40. So as per the elevation in the Yosemite trail,it altered the incline etc, automatically. Tomorrow my husband plans to walk in Hawai. We again used the Google maps walk to create our own trail. Another fun feature, is that when we are logged into the ifit live web site, the computer screen shows your workout, miles, distance, time etc. So you have a second screen. This is useful if you want to watch your progress on your google maps trail. It's an awesome product, it makes losing weight fun. We plan to buy the Nordic track inlcine trainer aw well, but we are not sure if the same ifit module will update the calories burned in both machines. I couldn't find the answer on their we
