It’s a week out from Christmas, but we’ve got a little gift for you all: a RunKeeper integration with the brand new mobile app from WeightTraining!
WeightTraining allows you to follow scheduled workout plans, view workout summaries, search a database of more than 2,000 exercises, track fitness data, and earn badges for workouts over time.
It joins the ranks of other mobile strength training tools like GAIN Fitness and Stronger, and more than 100 other health-focused apps, devices (like the new Gear4 Renew Sleep Clock), and services that integrate with RunKeeper!
One hundred is a pretty momentous number, so we wanted to pause and reflect on this awesome, booming community of RunKeeper partners.
We understand that activity tracking is just one piece of being the personal trainer in your pocket, and we envision a world where you can tie disparate sources of your health data into one accesible place. In summer 2011 we launched our Health Graph API to begin our pursuit of that.
In addition to the integration with strength training apps, you can now see the connection between your RunKeeper activity and your weight via partners like TactioWeight Pro, Withings Health Companion, and Weighty; what you’re eating, with nutrition trackers like LoseIt and ShapeUp Club; and how you’re sleeping at night thanks to Zeo and Sleep Cycle.
We also like to help RunKeepers find what motivates them most to work out, so we’ve enlisted rewards programs like GymPact and Earndit, and fitness games like Nexercise, Fitocracy, and Notch. And corporate wellness programs like Limeade, RedBrick Health, and soon Virgin HealthMiles can give employees credit for workouts they track through RunKeeper.
We’re really excited that our vision is getting early validation from these 100-plus partner apps and the RunKeepers that are using them, but we’re just in the early innings of what we see as a big game. We hope that that we can keep integrating these more deeply with RunKeeper ato create a better, smarter, and and more insightful machine that helps you get healthier. So stay tuned, because things are just heating up around here!
We’re further celebrating this crew with a tweet chat at 2pm EST today, at the hashtag #RKPartners. Tune in to hear from the partner companies and share your wishes, dreams, and requests for RunKeeper integration experiences.
Do you integrate with any partner apps currently? How has it added to your RunKeeper experience? What would you like to see more of?
