Music can make training on your NordicTrack bike much easier. A good playlist not only makes your workout more enjoyable, but it can also motivate you to train harder and faster than you would without music. Fortunately, NordicTrack’s iFit system is designed with this functionality in mind.

There are several ways to play music both externally and directly through the NordicTrack system. Read on to learn more about what music is available on the NordicTrack bike and how you can listen to it during your next workout.

How to Add Music to the NordicTrack
If you’re trying to add streaming music from Apple or Spotify to your NordicTrack bike, you’ll need to convert it into a compatible audio file before playing it on your bike. Once you’ve downloaded the files to an audio player, perform the following:
- Plug in your music player. Plug an audio wire into the audio jack in the monitor below the Live Workouts buttons on your NordicTrack bike. Plug the other end of the wire into the jack on your audio player.
- Play music. Press Play on your audio player and adjust the volume through the player directly rather than the NordicTrack bike.
Once you’ve downloaded a music file converter, transferring audio files to your NordicTrack’s system should be simple. For those users who don’t want to fool around with outside music sources, there are also options to listen to music directly through the NordicTrack software.

How to Control Music Volume on the NordicTrack Bike
Since the NordicTrack Bike allows the user to listen to music and do an iFit fitness program at the same time, there are several volume controls on the bike that allow you to customize your audio experience.
