Always in search of ways to improve your training? Well, Strava is about to get a little more powerful thanks to two new features to help keep you on track. Adding new features to both their standard and premium Summit accounts, Fitness and Perceived Exertion may help you level up out on the road or trail.
Available to all Strava users on iOS and Android, Perceived Exertion is a way to track your training efforts based on how hard they feel. That means you can leave the heart rate monitor at home. By rating your workout hardness from 1 to 10, the PE feature is directly linked to the other new feature…
…Fitness. This one is only available to paid Summit members, and it’s fairly self explanatory. By using the PE rating and other metrics, the Fitness analytic tool will assign you a daily fitness score. Which you can track over time – to see how you stack up over the years.
To gain access to Fitness, you’ll need a Strava Summit subscription which runs $59.99 per year.
