Share Your Commitments With Friends

Last month, we wanted to help you stick to your resolutions by making a commitment to yourself. We got a lot of great feedback on the release of our Commitments feature, which lets you set a weekly fitness goal and follow the progress made towards it. If you missed our how-to post, you can check it out here. We’ve now added some of your suggestions to our Android 10.7 and iOS 9.7 updates to help improve how you commit to your goals, no matter what they are. Maybe your main fitness goal is to run faster or to get in better shape. Depending on where you start off from, it can seem like it will take forever to get there. That’s why breaking it down into smaller, accessible goals will help you realize the real progress you’re making. With Commitments, you can find your motivation in reaching a goal each week, and pat yourself on the back for those milestones you hit along the way towards your overall fitness goal. Speaking of which, remember to reward yourself for those fitness feats, because you’ve earned it!

Why We’re Merging Our PRO and Free Android Apps

mailtop

To make progress, there has to be change, and this belief is what ensures we keep innovating with our app. Ever since we launched our PRO version in 2010, we’ve been working hard to keep updating it, as well as our Free app and our Premium feature set. Our focus is now, and has always been, to offer you the best features and most optimized experience each time you use Endomondo. In order to to that, we are simplifying our user experience by merging our PRO and free apps on Android into one. This means that after the 10.7. release, the PRO app will no longer be updated with new features. If you are currently using our PRO app, we kindly ask that you download and use our Free app from now on. Continue reading Why We’re Merging Our PRO and Free Android Apps

How the Love of Running Created a Family

imageSanto Domingo, Dominican Republic. Sun, beaches, merengue, and…marathons. Yup, you heard right. Santo Domingo happens to be home to a very active group of runners; or rather, a family of runners – Senda Corre. It all started about a year ago, when this intrepid group of runners decided that they would take on Pico Duarte – the highest peak in the Caribbean. They planned on reaching the top of the mountain to claim the glory of crowning the imposing peak together. Not all of the group members were active runners, so they needed to prepare for the challenge. To do that, the group started training together, and the enthusiasm spread. Senda Corre made its “official” debut at the 2014 Punta Cana Marathon. Members of the group look back on that day fondly. “We will always remember that moving moment when Walter Garcia reached the finish line of his first marathon, and almost everyone there kept chanting: Go Walter…Senda Corre!”. After that, it was all uphill. Literally, because they reached the summit as a team, and they plan on doing it again this year. Continue reading How the Love of Running Created a Family

Thinking Software – Taking the Sedentary Out of Programming

thinking softwareNo matter how much of an avid athlete you are, if you have an office job, chances are you’re probably sitting for a large part of your day. Working at a desk, hunched over a keyboard can wreak havoc on your body (carpal tunnel, anyone?).  As you may already know, programmers are notorious for putting in long hours in front of their screens, which can make these problems even worse. Doing something as simple as taking a stretching break or a going for a short afternoon jog or walk can help alleviate these aches, but it’s tough to remember to do this when you’re chained to your desk trying to wrap up a project and to get home in time for dinner. That’s where a shift in corporate culture can come to the rescue of these aching necks and backs. At Thinking Software, a company dedicated to developing workforce management solutions, there were already a few keen mountain bikers enthusiastically supporting Endomondo and using our app regularly, but there wasn’t a joint approach to getting the entire team on the fitness bandwagon.

That all changed when the management team over at Thinking Software decided to make fitness an official part of the culture by signing the entire office up to Endomondo Premium with an Employee Fitness plan. Continue reading Thinking Software – Taking the Sedentary Out of Programming
