iFit allows users to create a personal profile and track a wide range of fitness and exercise data. Among other data, the platform allows users to record the number of steps they've taken per day, the calories and macronutrients that they've taken in, the amount of sleep they've had, and the calories burned through physical activity. This information can be entered manually through the iFit website or mobile app, but a variety of devices can also track some of the data automatically.

The iFit organization offers wearable devices for counting steps and keeping an ideal running cadence, and it is linked with some of its parent company Nordictrack's gym equipment for automated recording and uploading of workout data. Custom workouts created by personal trainers can also be loaded into supporting equipment.

Some specific data can be extrapolated from more general information as well. Users can simply enter the type of food they've eaten to get a calorie count and breakdown of macronutrient content, such as protein and fiber.
