has anyone seen this web site? This is really cool. I ordered the iTread workout and just used it at the gym. It was really fun.

That is a cool idea. Which one did you download? I think that would totally get me to push myself harder.

is there a limit to how many times you can use your workout? How does it work? I just got a treadmill that is supposed to work with "ifit", but have no idea how it works. Can you give me some feedback?

That sounds like a good workout idea. Has anybody hear used iTrain at all? or anything similar? I love some feedback too.

Sounds strange but if I download on my mp3 player, (my ipod) I can't see the workout. What kind of mp3 player would you need? Sounds cool but very user unfriendly.

OP here--how it works--you just download a workout to your ipod and go. They are really geared toward gym workouts--using machines like treadmills, eliptical machines, etc. I did it the first time last night (I downloaded iTread) and it was pretty cool. I'm still trying to figure out where to put my iPod when I'm on a treadmill, but that's another story.

You can use it on most mp3 players, but I have an iPod and had no problems dowloading it.

You don't need to see anythign on your screen because it's all audio--I was concerned at first that you would need the video iPods, but you don't.

There is no limit to how many times you can use the workout. I assume I'll get tired of this one and may download a couple more to get some variety.

Hrm. this doesn't sound like its for those who can only walk on the treadmill.....Looked at all the descriptions and it seems to incorporate it all into the treadmill workout, and well, I'm just not that dang in shape yet.
wish they had a baby-itrain :P

To above poster--there are three levels on the workout--walk, jog, and run. The walking level starts at about a 4.0 and tops off at about 4.5 speed. Personally, I adapted it to suit me and ended up somewhere in the middle of walk and jog. I think you could adapt it to your fitness level. Good luck!

I don't belong to a gym. Can iTread be used for regular outdoor walking?

this looks so cool.

i noticed that you can download a pdf manual with each workout with more info about exactly what moves you'll be doing, what equipment you'll need, etc. :)

Can iTread be used for regular outdoor walking?

Having done the workout a couple of times, I would say you could use it for regular outdoor walking, but have to adjust some of the directions. There are points in the workout where you change the incline on the treadmill. Since you aren't likely to reach hills at the exact time the workout says to increase your incline, you could adapt the exercise somehow--maybe do sprints instead or do some other type of exercise that would mimic an incline. I'm going to be going out of town this weekend and am going to be away from a treadmill and will see if I can do the workout without a treadmill and will report back later.

I find one of the most useful things about it is having somebody encouraging you on and telling you what to do. I don't follow what she says exactly so I think it could be adapted to outdoor walking.

I did the iSculpt Traditional last night and it kicked my butt! Very good lower body workout using only 3 lb weights and a chair. I plan to try iStretch tonight.

I just did the iClimb last night on a stairclimber. It can also be used on an eliptical machine. It was pretty good. The guy made the workout very adaptable based on your level of fitness. The best thing for me was having the motivation to go the whole 40 minutes of the workout rather than stop at 30 minutes which I would have done without somebody telling me to keep going.

iClimb and iCycle

I have done both of these programs (20 min each) twice now and I'm really enjoying them. They're challenging but not too hard and they make the time fly!
