“Sports and exercise are integral to the lives of Strava community members, with  76% of them doing activities beyond running or cycling more than 3 times per week. We want to make it easier for them to share all of those workouts on Strava,” says James Quarles, Strava CEO. “Whether you’re sweating inside or outdoors, it’s more fun and motivating when you share your progress with a community who is also active. Plus, uploading these new partner experiences enable you and your friends and followers to discover new ways to work out.”

“At Flywheel, we are fueled by our community of performance-focused athletes; those who are engaged, connected and empowered to challenge themselves and others,” says Flywheel CEO Sarah Robb O’Hagan. “We are thrilled to partner with a like-minded brand like Strava to bring our integrated offering to athletes everywhere and enable them to achieve more of their fitness goals.”

Last year Strava announced their partnership with Peloton, which now draws more than 14,000 Peloton activities a week from Strava athletes who have connected their Peloton accounts with Strava.

Strava makes it easy to connect and engage with other athletes. Strava works with more than 100 GPS devices and a host of connected fitness platforms such as gyms, studios and apps.
