Start Exploring Your New Workout Page

Over the past months, we’ve been on a mission – to revamp our workout page by making it better than ever, and able to meet the needs of our growing community. A few weeks back, we started rolling out the updated workout page, and got a lot of good feedback from our community, so thanks! We took in all the feedback you sent us and got to work. Now, we’d like to invite you to be among the first to try your new workout page, so you can share your thoughts on it before we roll it out to everyone.

This was the first major redesign we’ve done on web in a long time and this means that there were a lot of adjustments to be made both to the design and to the system. Our goal is to make it easy and engaging for you to analyze your performance on every workout, and get a true sense of your achievements and progress whenever you visit your page regardless of whether you’re on mobile, tablet or desktop. With so many of you (and your friends) visiting the page from mobile and social, we wanted to make sure your achievements are always front and center.

To get a feel for what’s new, check out the highlights of the vibrant new design. Continue reading Start Exploring Your New Workout Page

Steven, a Father Running for a Noble Goal

As a new parent, there’s probably nothing more alarming than having your child become sick and not being able to figure out why. Early this year, one of our users and proud parent, Steven, experienced just that. Without warning, Steven’s 10-week-old daughter Jasmine started having cold-like symptoms. He and his partner Tanja rushed her to their local hospital where she stayed overnight with what seemed to be a severe cold. Worried something more serious was going on, Steven started researching his daughter’s symptoms and decided to seek a second opinion.
