Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide. That's what you get with these connected treadmills from NordicTrack. Climb on the road to nowhere, hop in one of the live, interactive training sessions you stream on the HD touchscreen right in front of you, and take off. The personal trainers can control your treadmill's incline, decline, and speed in real time so you have no choice but to sprint up that hill! Google Maps technology lets you run anywhere in the world. And you get tons of personalized stats to tell you how much harder you need to run to beat your buddy. Just the motivation you need to lose those extra few pounds.
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!
