Ever want to workout with a two-time Olympic gold medalist? Now you can. NordicTrack's connected rowers will let you stream live, interactive workouts with trainers or get sweaty with on-demand workouts good for beginners to people who want to row and lift at the same time. Go big with the RW900's 22-inch touchscreen or small with the RW600's 10-inch screen. But make sure you go hard because that Olympic rower expects nothing less.
What could happen if something goes wrong?
So, if you buy a NordicTrack exercise machine and sign up for their iFit app for workouts, expect your data to be collected, used to target you with all kinds of ads, your phone number is now fair game for marketing texts or phone calls from them, and your data is possibly being sold to third parties. You’re gonna need a good workout to help get rid of the stress of all that. Maybe go outside and take a run or bike offline though, that seems safer. Good news though, residents of California in the US can opt out of some of this data gathering and selling. Just California residents though, thanks to their privacy law called CCPA, no one else. Yay for strong privacy laws!
