An App a Day: Strava Cycling and Running

The fitness app from Strava that will transform even the biggest couch potato into an exercise junkie

How does it work?

Surpassing all other running and cycling apps, Strava is the Rolls Royce of tools designed to keep track of your distance, time, elevation, calories, and speed. Created to help you assess your performance and push you to your limits, this app also lets you experience social fitness whereby users are connected with a community of athletes, professional and novice, who in turn provide motivation and camaraderie. It’s fun and encouraging fitness at its best.

Special features

Track your runs and rides - get key stats like distance, pace, speed, elevation gained and calories burned and also collect heart rate, power and cadence data from ANT+ and Bluetooth LE sensors. Not to mention you can also follow routes you’ve created just in case you want to try the same route again or even beat your previous times.

Strava also connects you with other like-minded athletes where you can find your friends, share results across social platforms and assess how you stack up against friends, locals and pros on the Strava leaderboards.

If all this wasn’t enough to quite satisfy your inner Rocky then you can upgrade the app to a premium version which gives access to workout gear, shop discounts, and more detailed heart rate analysis.

Why do we love it?

It’s famed for being able to convert even the biggest couch potato into Mr Motivator due to its addictive leadership boards and brutal self analysis tools. Plus there’s nothing more satisfying after a hard slog of exercise than seeing it all mapped out in it’s exhausting but triumphant glory - an electronic slap on the back if you will.

Why do we need it?

We’re having a little, shall we say ‘trouble’ in getting ourselves out of the sunny pub garden and into our workout gear, but this is just the ticket to help re-ignite your sense of drive and urgency to get fitter, healthier and perhaps just a bit skinnier.

Hi everyone! (How to Get My Ex Back).
I'm so excited my husband is back after he have left me for another woman.
My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:( Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on: +2348072370762 ). I am Donna Murray by name and i reside here in Silver Springs Florida.
