Goal-Oriented ‘Commitments’ and ‘Create a Challenge’ Features Capitalize On Endomondo’s Unique Social Approach to Exercise
COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Jan. 06, 2015 – Staying motivated is a crucial aspect to keeping New Year’s fitness resolutions. To help, Endomondo has released an update for the very popular Endomondo Sports Tracker iOS and Android app that includes two new goal-oriented means for keeping users focused on fitness ambitions.
The first tool now available enables users to create their own private challenge and invite select people to take part directly from the app. With more than 300,000 participants in some of Endomondo’s public challenges, it is a proven motivating concept that is now launched in a more personal version which can be tailored to every user’s needs.
The second new feature is called ‘Commitments’ and allows users to set a weekly, personal fitness goal from the app. Users can choose a weekly performance schedule before selecting a specific sport in which to participate. It is then possible to review weekly activities via the app and get notified of the progress made towards the goal.
