Endomondo Adds Interval Training to Popular iPhone App As Endomondo Users' Most Requested Feature, Interval Training Upgrades Sports Tracker's Ability to Support the Most Demanding Workouts
SAN FRANCISCO, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When Endomondo asked users of its Endomondo Sports Tracker iPhone app for the feature they'd most like to have in the next version, interval training was at the top of the list. Today, Endomondo delivers on that request.
Available exclusively in the paid Pro version of Endomondo Sports Tracker, the interval training feature lets iPhone users create custom workouts by defining intervals and includes an audio coach to guide them through each step. Available free to Endomondo users who already have the Pro version, the interval training feature is the latest example of how Endomondo Sports Tracker turns the iPhone into a full-fledged personal trainer and social fitness partner.
Endomondo Sports Tracker is also available for Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and several other operating systems. That cross-platform design makes it easy for users to turn workouts into a social activity, providing the additional motivation, interactivity and fun that are key for maintaining an active lifestyle.
"Interval training is an effective way to improve performance," said Mette Lykke, Endomondo co-founder. "This addition shows how Endomondo Sport Tracker continues to be the must-have app for making exercise more social, motivating and fun."
Last month, Endomondo added interval training to its Android app, as well as a multi-platform sync feature that automatically updates workout statistics across multiple platforms for easier tracking and social sharing.
Founded in 2007 by a team of fitness enthusiasts, Endomondo turns mobile devices into full-fledged personal trainers and connects users to a vibrant social fitness network where people can support, motivate and challenge each other and share results. The Endomondo Sports Tracker mobile app, which utilizes GPS technology, records a full history of workouts and can be used for any distance-based sport. Additionally, the Endomondo.com website provides users with a personal portal -- incorporating performance tracking tools, an extensive atlas of exercise routes around the world, connection to the Endomondo community, and more. Available on seven mobile platforms, Endomondo operates on almost all GPS phones. For more information, please visit http://www.endomondo.com and follow @Endomondo on Twitter.
