Check out the picture – this is how Cris Trandafir celebrated that he was able to run more than 1000 miles in a year – by tracking this symbolically shaped workout. He used to be a couch potato and credits the Endomondo community for getting an impulse to become an active person.
In his own words: “I’m so happy that I found this app and it’s working great on my phone! Running is now for me like a drug, my body is asking for more and more Endorphins! Happy to be a part of Endomondo community!”
Thank you, Chris, for sharing with us – we love seeing the power of inspiration in action.
We spotted this Easter bunny running around the office! By the way, a rabbit is a symbol for the fastest lap of your workout at Endomondo…do you have any plans to bring it on and speed it up in the spring season?
We’ve developed Endomondo to make it more fun and engaging to workout, and to help you accomplish your fitness goals. In April we’ll make this even easier for our Premium users with customized Training Plans – more info will follow soon.
Our effort to support you in your training also extends to our blog. Recently we blogged about Interval Training for Newbies, offering good pieces of advice from experts. If there is a fitness topic you would like to know more about, let us know.
When we think about you – our beloved users, we wonder if you are getting the most out of your workouts? To support you in your training, we have included the interval training feature a while back. However, we would like to encourage more of you to incorporate interval training in your workout because it simply brings results. Interval training is available for all Endomondo Premium users and PRO app users on Android and iPhone. It can be intimidating at first, especially if you’ve never done it before, but following lines from Greatist.com should give you some ideas on how to start: Read more
Exciting news: We’re happy to share with you that Endomondo is among the apps you can now add to sections on your Facebook Timeline. Facebook has improved timeline and the About page to make it easier for you to organize and showcase activity from different types of apps – and fitness apps will have a designated section. For you guys, this means improvements to the way stories from Endomondo apps are displayed on your timeline.
Facebook is obviously an important partner for us – both in terms of spreading the word about Endomondo and in terms of driving engagement among our users. Our Open Graph integration has generated a total of almost 2 billion impressions on Facebook for us! We don’t even want to think about what that kind of exposure would cost us elsewhere. We also see that when users share their workouts on Facebook, the likelihood of motivating comments is much higher, and that drives up engagement.
We’re continuing to make updates to our Facebook integration based on user feedback to make it easy for you to share your runs, rides and walks on your timeline and find motivation to workout more.
If you have any feedback on what we should do next when it comes to Facebook integration, please share it in the comments. Thanks!
Which means of transport would you choose for adventure travelling across the entire US? Planes are too ordinary, cars aren’t anything new, motorcycles might be too dangerous, perhaps a train?
