Strava is an app designed for athletes that lets its users keep a record of all of their outdoor fitness activities, whether it’s running or riding a bike.
Strava’s main objective is to keep a detailed record of all of your fitness activities. It saves all the data from your outings, such as: distance covered, time elapsed, average pace, and calories burned. All this data is saved in your personal history, which you can then share with other app users.
Runners and cyclists are massive fans of the the Strava app, and it’s clear to see why. Whether you’re competing with yourself for a new personal best, or vying against strangers who are quicker than you, Strava brings the competition home. A great interface and strong community make this app truly worth it.
This social factor is precisely one of the most interesting things about Strava. The app has a large community with whom you can go beyond simply sharing your routes to actually engage in some healthy competition. Every so often Strava will have an event in your area and you can compete with other app users to be the king of that competition.
Apart from this social element, which adds a certain element of motivation, Strava also incorporates achievements, giving an additional incentive to those who enjoy showing off their trophies to the other users.
Strava is a great fitness app for users who usually go out running or biking, as it not only lets you keep a complete record of your activities, but also lets you share it with all the other users.
Strava has a truly simple interface. Example: if you want to switch between running or cycling, tap on the bicycle or shoe icon at the top and you’re there. It really is that easy.
