LOGAN, Utah — iFit, the leading interactive, connected fitness platform, is now streaming its Jordan Walking Series, a seven-part tour. Like all of iFit’s award-winning workouts, the incline, decline and speed automatically adjust on iFit-enabled treadmills — such as NordicTrack and ProForm — to match the terrain of the actual trail or path you are walking on. The walking series is available to all iFit members and free trial users with any treadmill.
iFit’s Jordan Walking Series explores the magnificent monuments, iconic pyramids and many other historic landmarks, which were shot on location by iFit’s film crew, prior to Covid-19. Led by sought-after tour guide Fadi Abu Jaber, the tour virtually brings the country now known as Jordan, a region with diverse landscapes and a rich history that spans thousands of years, right to your home. Jaber, a Jordan native, has more than 15 years of experience as a tour guide. Given his expertise, iFit gained access to locations and landmarks often unknown to tourists.
iFit is thrilled to expand its walking tour offerings, continuing the fusion of fitness, travel and education. A 2014 Stanford University study demonstrated that walking improves creative ideation in real time and shortly after, making the Jordan Walking Series ideal for a low-intensity workout to clear your head and generate ideas. It’s also a great option for beginners embarking on a fitness journey.
The iFit Jordan Walking Series contains seven workouts, ranging from 30-45 minutes, at a comfortable walking pace of 2.5 mph:
- Amman City Walk — Explore Jordan’s capital during this historical walk around the Amman Citadel, where you’ll learn about the country’s history, religion and culture.
- Ruins of Jerash Walk — Discover a hippodrome, where chariot races took place, as well as the Temples of Artemis and Zeus.
- Wadi Rum Cultural Walk — Explore the Valley of the Moon at sunset and learn about desert life as you walk through the sandy terrain. You’ll see rippling sand dunes and otherworldly rock formations that resemble the closest thing to Mars’s terrain on Earth.
- Petroglyphs Walk — Explore the desert landscape of Wadi Rum and discover hidden petroglyphs unbeknownst to most travelers.
- Petra City Walk— Learn about the holy city carved inside mountains made of sandstone. Enjoy a guided tour through the mountain all the way down to the treasury.
- Holy City Walk — Explore temples, ceremonial chambers and other famous landmarks that are part of Petra’s rich history.
