Are you bored with your cardio routine? Tired of running on the treadmill and staring at the wall? Maybe you have used all the pre-set programs and are looking for something more challenging or entertaining to keep your interest. BH Fitness comes to the rescue with their i.Concept design for treadmills, upright exercise bikes, recumbent exercise bikes and elliptical cross-trainers. Now you can run along the Pacific coastline by just connecting your Apple or Android device.

What is i.Concept?

BH Fitness i.Concept technology is a seamless interface that will run apps on your iPad, iPhone or iTouch with the use of Bluetooth. It is available on some of their S series residential and LK series commercial line of treadmills, bikes and ellipticals. Just plug your device into the machine and you can run any apps and use the device to control the actual equipment. Each piece of equipment with the i.Concept compatibility can function as a stand-alone machine with the regular fully functional console for those who don’t want to use a device. Or you can dock one and turn your console into one of those beautiful displays that other people pay thousands of extra dollars for.

What Devices can I use with I.Concept?

BH Fitness has teamed up with Apple to create this technology. Use your iPhone, iPad, iTouch or even Android device. Download the free Pafers App onto your device to get started. This requires iOS6 or later version. Pafers will allow you to control the machine through your device while using any other functions such as watching a movie, reading a book or checking your emails. While plugged into the machine it will also provide power and charge your device. No worries about watching a movie and running out of battery power.

What Apps can I use to Maximize my Workout?

There are numerous apps you can download from either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Do a search for "BH Fitness" and a list of different apps will come up. A popular one is called “Kinomap” where you can run or ride along almost any outdoor course. With the video feature you can follow a course posted by other users and try to keep up with them. See how you can match up to riding the Alpe d’Huez in the Tour De France. It will track your power, speed, slope, distance and even an optional heart rate. Or post your own video trail where you exercise most and try to beat your old time.

iConcept Apps

The "Run on Earth" app works with Google Maps and lets you setup any route around the world. You can view it in street view, map view or satellite view. Take a run through Central Park in New York, view the beautiful sites around Rome or run down the scenic coastline of California. This app will take your running routine to a whole other level of excitement. No more boredom staring at the wall while you are on your treadmill. You can exercise anywhere in the world without even leaving your home.
