  2. Head to your smart phone / device settings and ensure that the Bluetooth option is toggled to the on position. 
  3. Open the IFit app, this will direct you to open an account and customise the settings to they are specific to you personally. 
  4. Follow the connection instructions on the app, to connect your IFit device to the console of your Proform Elliptical trainer. Please note you will need to be fairly close to your Proform machine in order to complete this step successfully. 
  5. Once the connection is established, the LED light on your trainer console will flash blue, you must then press the Bluetooth Smart button on the console to accept the connection. If you have completed this step correctly the LED light will then turn solid blue.
  6. Follow the instructions in the IFit app to record all of your workout information.
