Unlike machines that offer mock virtual trainers or a generic scenic view, Passport offers the only workout experience with real destination footage and matching ambient sounds. Connecting to home entertainment systems, Passport displays workout data on-screen while taking the user on a journey through truly stunning destinations. By means of “equipment interactivity,”
“The Passport media player lets you begin your workout in your living room and finish in the Italian countryside,”
Available only to JHTNA, this exclusive technology has been battle tested at gyms around the world on their Matrix line of equipment. Now, for the first time the technology is being introduced to the consumer market and is available on the AFG 7.1 AT treadmill and the LIVESTRONG LSPRO2 treadmill.
Each machine comes equipped with two programs – the American Southwest and Northern Italy. Individual trails include the Las Vegas Strip, Grand Canyon, Venetian cityscape, Italian countryside and more. Additional programs are available for purchase online.
Contributing to the most advanced workout experience, additional features on Passport-equipped treadmills deliver the maximum training experience indoors. The LSPRO2 provides new runner-specific cushioning which provides comfort and simulates the feel of an outdoor track. A treadmill the experienced runner can trust, the AFG 7.1 AT comes with a highly-durable frame built with heavy-gauge steel that won’t shift or creak during intense exercise sessions.
“Our new treadmills with Passport technology do more than save your workout during inclement weather or cold-weather seasons; it makes it hard to get bored when you have the world’s best running paths at your feet,” Kolman said. “This new breed of machines makes it simple to do what you want to do – run.”
The LSPRO2 and AFG 7.1 AT with Passport are available beginning in November at specialty retailers and select national retailers, and on-line. For more information on AFG and LIVESTRONG Fitness, visit www.advancedfitnessgroup.com and www.livestrongfitness.com.
