iFit Connected Fitness Now Streaming Mindfulness and Self-Compassion Walking Series

August 13, 2020

Learn to live a more centered life while exploring nature’s beauty

(LOGAN, Utah) — iFit, the leader in connected fitness, invites members to explore personal growth with its six-part Mindfulness and Self-Compassion Walking Series. The series teaches practices to help improve sleep, increase body positivity and self-esteem, and cultivate powerful stress-management coping tools while iFit members walk on their treadmills.

“Exercise and mindfulness go hand in hand,” Mark Watterson, President of iFit, said. “Learning to incorporate life management tools, particularly ones that help manage stress and improve sleep, is essential to improving wellness and cultivating an all-around healthy lifestyle. We’re proud to offer a well-rounded approach to health for our iFit members.”

The iFit Mindfulness and Self Compassion Walking Series is taught by Dr. Shauna Shapiro, a clinical psychologist, professor and scientist, who has spent the last 20 years studying and teaching the powerful effects of mindfulness. Shapiro will virtually guide iFit members through beautiful locations around the globe, sharing principles of mindfulness that will shift the way they approach life’s challenges. These walks are 15–20 minutes long and are held at a comfortable walking pace of 2.5 miles per hour.

Like all of iFit’s Global Workouts, walkers will experience the serenity of the outdoors, as they virtually explore paths and trails filmed on-location by the iFit crew. For those with iFit-enabled exercise equipment, like NordicTrack and ProForm, iFit technology will automatically adjust the speed, incline, and decline to match the natural terrain of the trail. Those without iFit-enabled equipment can still benefit from this series—simply download the iFit app, prop a smartphone or tablet onto a treadmill, and manually adjust the incline, decline, and speed to match the iFit workout.
