What if you could run through the American Southwest or Northern Italy any time you stepped on your treadmill? Or cycle through an Alpine meadow without leaving your living room? With the Passport Media Player, featuring Virtual Active technology, you can! Passport makes every workout an adventure. With high-definition destination footage and coordinated ambient sounds, you can experience journeys through stunning worldwide destinations–all without packing a suitcase.
How it works. When connected to a television, the Passport Media Player displays workout data onscreen while guiding you through exotic and inspiring locales. Passport is interactive and responsive, so you’ll really climb the hills and rugged cliffs as your incline or resistance changes automatically to match the terrain on screen. The video speed is also determined by your speed. It moves faster when you move faster and it slows down as you slow down. It is all so seamlessly integrated that you don’t have to think about it, and the stunning visuals keep your mind off the extra effort of the hill climbs.
Available products. The Horizon Elite T9 treadmill and Elite E9 elliptical feature two Virtual Active programs included right in the console. Other select Horizon Fitness treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes come Passport Ready, which means once you connect a Passport Media Player (sold separately) your machine will interact and respond and the high-definition video content will displayed on your connected television screen.
