We posted some significant, yet seamless, updates to the form that allows you to add new workouts. Now when you add a workout, you have a few new options:
Add exercises. This is a significant enhancement that let’s you add multiple exercises to a single workout. For example, if you’re workout consists of a warm-up, run, and cool-down, then log these as three separate exercises within the same workout. Each exercise has a set of relevant quantifiers that let you track things like your pace, time, distance, etc. In time, these quantifiers will be the basis of a great deal of insight into your performance.
Auto-save. Never worry about clicking that save button again. As you type in the workout/exercise form, your data is saved automatically. Just open, edit, and close … one less step. That’s how we try to approach most everything on the site: clean and simple.
Add notes, or not. In every workout there is an “add notes” link. If you have some extra text you’d like to add to your workout, this is the place for it. If not, it remains hidden out of sight for a cleaner form.
Start Time of Day. There is no requirement to use this when creating workouts, however it will be an important feature when group workout scheduling goes live. We’re scaling the site for bigger and better things so be sure to check back time and again for what Athlo can do for your athletic lifestyle.
In other news, we’ve been working hard on getting one of the exciting features ready to lauch: training plan generation. We’ll keep you posted on the development, but so far it’s coming together quite nicely.
