Photos and Video Now Make Exercise Routes Fun and Educational with Latest Update to Free Endomondo Fitness Website

News Release: Revamped Endomondo.com “Routes” Feature Lets Users Locate Or Create Fitness Paths around the Globe

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Jan. 24, 2013 – Always searching for ways to make exercise more enjoyable, recent updates to Endomondo’s “Routes” feature at its popular fitness social network website now make it possible to pin photos, video or background details to points of interest along a path.  The content is then presented to users as they travel the route via the Endomondo Sports Tracker mobile app.

After entering Endomondo.com, users simply click on the “Routes” tab to open a map of the world.  Then select a fitness activity and workout distance desired.  With the map’s zoom feature, fitness fans can focus on specific communities and find suggested paths traveled by millions of Endomondo users around the world.  Once an interesting course is found, simply mark the route as “Favorite” to have it delivered to the free Endomondo Sports Tracker mobile app for iPhone and Android devices.

Whether someone is looking for exciting new exercise routes near their home, or in need of reliable paths during business travels or vacations, the Routes module invites discovery and allows users to rate the quality of trails.  People can create and tag their own routes or select from paths formed by others.  Endomondo’s Route tool also aids innovation with a unique “Snap to Road” feature that syncs trail formation to existing paths and roads on a map.  Individualized routes can then be viewed by Friends or shared with the Endomondo social community at large.

Endomondo Co-Founder Mette Lykke said, “Endomondo was created by fitness fans to make fitness fun.  We’ve found that people are more likely to maintain a workout regimen when they have a support group and when exercise remains enjoyable and engaging.  With the new Routes module, we make it easy for users to find the best and most motivating places to work out.”

    i still cant seem to import a route using a gpx file into Endomondo. I have routes that i used to use in a different app ( mapmyride ) and decided to use endomondo instead this year. but the lack of this feature is making the switch difficult.
    is this being planned for ?
    thanks

    I have workouts recorded in Endomondo. I would like a “Create Route” option while viewing a workout. It should be easy to make a route from a recorded workout.
