Endomondo Has Changed My Life!

e receive a lot of fantastic feedback from our users. They are stories of how Endomondo has changed lives, from support in marathon training to motivation for weight loss to help in overcoming serious medical ailments. From time to time we like to share some of their stories, so here are a few recent ones that really inspired us.

Darrelle Clifford:

I’ve always taken up running, here and there, and I recently signed up for the Reach the Beach relay race with my mom (an avid marathon runner) as a new bonding experience. Even after signing up, I found it difficult to get motivated to tighten up my training. I always run with my Android phone for the music, so I searched for an app that would help me get motivated. I found Endomondo and fell in love. Endomondo gives me the motivation I was seeking and makes running more fun than its been for me in the past. It’s easy to use and makes training for my upcoming race enjoyable and competitive (even if it’s only with myself) as I can track my mileage, calories burned, and it’s all mapped out! I’ve told all the runners I know about it and my mom is even looking into upgrading to a phone that supports Endomondo. Great program!

I think it’s great that you run with your mother! I only hope we can keep you motivated enough to keep up with her. Continue reading Endomondo Has Changed My Life!

Commute Healthier, Mentally and Physically

What a difference a change in your commute can make. Increasingly, people are opting to bike to work, rather than resigning themselves to the morning sardine can routine (public transportation) or the grind of rush hour traffic. Are they making this decision for their health? Yes, but often mental well-being is the deciding factor and physical health is an afterthought.

For most people, especially those of us who live and work in cities, biking to work isn’t exactly a physically demanding ordeal. But if you are making the average bicycle commute, you are doing yourself a lot more good than you may know. According to 1 World, 2 Wheels, the average person loses 13 lbs. in the first year of commuting by bike. Not a bad perk for avoiding the sardine can.
