Not all workout programs are created equal. One workout program may lack what another program may excel in. For instance, you may want to do a strength training session then cooldown with a yoga workout, but the workout program you currently have may not offer both workout options. It can be frustrating, time-consuming, and draining to find and download many different workout programs or apps to access all the workouts you want.
Thankfully, the glorious world of iFit® has a large variety of workout programs for you to choose from based on your mood and physical fitness level all in one virtual training program. Whatever the case may be, iFit is packed with challenging, yet entertaining workouts that’ll leave you hungry for more.
Let’s go over what kind of workouts you can see on iFit:
Running Workout Programs

Better yet, avoid boredom as you train on your NordicTrack bike with these cycling workout programs:

Rowing Workout Programs
The great thing about rowing is that you can experience the same great benefit from cross-country skiing, aerobic dancing, swimming, stair climbing, bicycling, jogging, elliptical training all from working out on a rower. They share the same kind of aerobic activity benefits without adding too much stress on your joints. On top of that, rowing health benefits include strengthening your heart and increasing your endurance.

Strength training can benefit any man and woman, especially since our muscle mass tends to decrease as we get older. So, it’s important to help reverse that trend and strengthen our bones, as well as promote more flexibility with strength training workouts. As an added bonus, strength training also controls your body weight. As you gain more muscle, you’re capable of burning calories more easily.

Hiking Workout Programs
Hiking is a great way to see the outdoors and admire what mother nature has put in place for our enjoyment; however, there are also limitations placed on us when we are allowed to enjoy these scenic views. Weather, personal health conditions, natural disasters, and financial hardships can all contribute to limiting our explorations.
Luckily, iFt has given us the opportunity to continue our journeys around the world all year long, 24/7. Furthermore, iFit has even made it cheaper for us all to travel to the most beautiful hikes in the world. Forget the expensive flights, hotels, and overpriced foods and drinks.

Walking Workout Programs
Walking is the beginning stage for us all. We must learn to walk as toddlers before we can run, so it’s a good idea to learn to walk properly with good form before you jump too far ahead. And with these iFit walking programs, you’ll increase your cardiovascular and pulmonary fitness, improve your balance, strengthen your bones, and even reduce body fat––providing you with a great foundation to help you, as well as maintain your overall health.
This program is safe and easy to get started with walking. Each workout starts out with a warm up at a speed of 2.5 mph (4.02 kph) for the first quarter mile. After your warm-up, speeds increase to 3-4 mph (4.82-6.43 kph). The final quarter mile of each workout will return speed to 2.5 mph (4.02 kph) for a cooldown.
You may think walking may be easy, at least until you try this incline walking workout program. This program includes 10 progressive incline walking workouts that’ll target your glutes, inner and outer thighs, quads, hamstrings, calves and cardiovascular system––leaving you with the feeling of accomplishment.
Speed walking is a great workout that is low impact. By walking at a brisk, fast pace, you can still challenge your muscles without having to run.
HIIT Workout Programs

Time Crunch Workout Programs
Some days call for anything and everything except working out––whether you don’t have enough time or energy. But working out even just for five minutes can be very beneficial for your health.
The University of Utah conducted a study that resulted in a decrease of obesity in men and women when they incorporated short bursts of high-intensity activities of fewer or greater than 10 minutes into their everyday life. As you can see, a little goes a long way.

Active Recovery Workout Programs
Sometimes active recovery can be more beneficial than inactivity due to blood flowing to recover and rebuild your muscles after intense exercise. This helps to reduce lactic acid building up in your muscles, eliminating toxins in your body, and even reducing soreness.
To start a new active recovery routine, try this recovery walk in Bolivia:
