The NordicTrack Vault fitness mirror is the most recent addition to the product range.

Vault’s crisp 61.5” oversized mirror provides immediate visual feedback, allowing you to match the form of your iFit trainer for a better workout. With sleek, integrated storage for premium dumbbells, kettlebells, yoga, Pilates and strength training accessories, Vault is the total package.
ProForm also offers a range of state-of-the-art interactive connected treadmills, elliptical machines, strength and reflective products, studio bikes, home gyms, weight benches, and yoga and Pilates equipment, at a lower price-point.

IFIT workouts are led by a variety of globally recognised high-profile trainers including US female soccer star Alex Morgan and British Olympic rowing gold medalist, Alex Gregory. Australia’s own fitness guru, Tanya Poppet, is also featured on the iFIT platform amongst many more credible trainers and accomplished athletes.
In an effort to build more awareness locally for iFIT and its products, the company will soon announce a number of exciting new Australian ambassadors.
IFIT’s Australasian General Manager, Clayton Scott has been overseeing South East Asian operations for over 14 years, as the company pioneered the category and defined what it means to have a truly interactive fitness experience, at home, in the gym, or on the go.
“Australian consumers have been shifting their workouts to online and virtual experiences for some time and the pandemic accelerated that trend. More and more people are realising they can maximise both their time and fitness results,” Scott said.
“Moreover, connected and interactive fitness experiences offered by iFIT double as immersive, on-demand getaways. IFIT streaming workouts let you virtually run the Boston Marathon route we shot during the 2019 race, cycle scenic routes in Europe or row waterways from the Thames to the Zambezi River. IFIT’s interactive technology automatically adjusts the resistance, incline, and speed of your fitness equipment to match the route in the IFit streaming workout, to create an immersive experience like no other.”
Scott noted that total business in Australia has more than doubled in the past 18 months.
“For some time, I’ve been saying that the Australian market presents a tremendous business opportunity. Australians are passionate about sport and fitness and now with the growth of home fitness, there’s no better time to offer the best-in-class experience.”
A one-year iFIT subscription is valued at AUD$249.00. Previously only available online in Australia, NordicTrack and ProForm are now available at Rebel Sport, select retailers as well as online – nordictrackfitness.com.au & proformfitness.com.au.
