Looking to start work on those fitness goals but not sure where to start or concerned about gym membership costs? Strava, a free fitness app designed to track and monitor workouts, such as running and cycling, could provide the ideal means of getting started and remaining consistent. The uniqueness of Strava is its emphasis on community and makes it easy to compete in your local area or with friends due to its ‘segment’ feature when recording your route. Once the workout is over your data is uploaded to your account which can be compared against previous times, both yours and others. This sense of competition can feed your motivation to beat your own times or top the table and therefore encourages users to exercise more. No more excuses!
