A Look at Personalized Fitness Programs: Elliptical Fat Burning Workouts by Jillian Michaels

If training with the best has been your dream, then the elliptical fat burning workouts by Jillian Michaels are the next best thing to being there. America’s toughest trainer has brought her brand of killer workouts to iFit® Live, the downloadable fitness programming exclusive to ICON Fitness cardio machines.

What You Get with the Program

With iFit® Live, you are plugged into the internet (via wireless) in order to directly download the personalized programs to your elliptical machine. The automated programming will even upload your workout stats to your own online profile so you can easily track your progress.

By following the Jillian way, you will reach your weight loss goals faster than you would if you were designing your own exercise program.

As a featured product, we recommend the Jillian Michaels Lose Weight 3 Level Pack ($89.95), a set of 3 iFit® cards which are compatible with treadmills, stationary bikes, and ellipticals that are equipped with iFit® SD card slots.

The iFit® module and cards can be used on elliptical brands made by ICON Fitness, which include NordicTrack, Healthrider, Proform and more. (Note: the FreeMotion S5.6 and S5.8 ellipticals have iFit® capabilities but not the SD slot, so they are not compatible with Jillian Michaels iFit® cards.)

Along with the elliptical fat burning workouts by Jillian Michaels, there are a number of other iFit® programs that offer a variety of intense workout that you can tailor to your goals. Each iFit® card offers 8 weeks of interactive workouts. The cards are designed with different goals in mind such as Weight Loss, Performance, Wellness, Getting Fit, Power Walking, Body Sculpting, and an intense Boot Camp program.

How it Works

You simply plug the small iFit® card into your console (there’s a special slot for it) and follow along to phenomenal workouts inspired and designed by Jillian, the star trainer on The Biggest Loser TV show.

Follow these steps to access the iFit® Live interactive programming:

  • Simply plug the iFit® Live module (modem) into your laptop or PC. Go to iFit.com and fill out your personal Profile and Goals.
  • Next, unplug the module from your laptop and plug it into the iFit port on your elliptical trainer’s console. The module will upload your results to your registered profile at iFit.com. (Wireless Network required.)
  • Each day, the elliptical fat burning Workouts by Jillian Michaels and her team of trainers will be automatically be downloaded to your module. These customized workout plans are designed specifically for you.
  • Press START and do the workout. The program automatically controls the resistance and incline of your machine. Throughout the workout you will hear Jillian’s voice as she coaches you throughout the program, offering encouragement and training tips.
  • Your results are monitored and stored in real time so you can easily track your progress.
  • As a bonus, you can access interactive Google Maps to “run the globe” via virtual routes of any type of running course, from quiet hills near the ocean to the pounding excitement of popular road contests such as the Boston Marathon.

Getting Started

The iFit® Live module requires a one-year access to iFit.com, as well as the wireless network capability in your home.

Many ellipticals models sold by ICON Fitness now include the one-year membership free with purchase. Also, there is now a free iFit® Live app to keep track and up-to-date on your mobile. (Available at the app store.)

If you are in the market for a new elliptical, the fat burning workouts by Jillian Michaels and the iFit® Live are an excellent bundle of interactive programs to help you reach your weight maintenance goals.
