You Can Officially Link Your Aaptiv and Strava Accounts!

We know you've been waiting for this.

What do you get when you combine world-class audio fitness content with world-class fitness tracking? Exactly what you wished for. Starting today, Aaptiv members can officially link their accounts to Strava to get the absolute most out of their workouts and see all of their active life in one place. You already love Aaptiv for its effective and versatile workouts. Now, you can forget about manually entering those workouts into Strava.

Automatically track and share your Aaptiv workouts—including distance (for running or cycling workouts), duration, and calories burned—with this seamless integration.

What’s a good tracking goal for new runners?

The best goal is one you can actually achieve—even if it seems too easy. “Focus on a goal that initially seems so easy to attain that you can practically guarantee success,” Pedersen says. “We’re habit-based creatures and it’s really tough to start an audacious habit like running three miles five times per week. If we create smaller habits then the momentum will build and, soon enough, we won’t be beginner runners any longer.”

How do I get started?

We’re glad you asked! First things first, you’ll need to download the Strava app and create an account. Once you have both Aaptiv and Strava downloaded, follow these steps to get started.

  1. Connect to Strava via the Aaptiv app.
  2. Choose and perform any Aaptiv workout as you normally would. Note: If you complete the workout in offline mode as a downloaded workout, you will need to open the Aaptiv app again with service to see your workout on Strava.
  3. Your Aaptiv workout will automatically post to your Strava feed.
  4. Watch the kudos, congratulations, and confetti roll in.
