2trailrunnersWith group fitness challenges, personalized training plans, coaching support, cool rewards, and our patented training technology, movecoach will help you build your fitness, and lead a healthier, more active life.

Here are 6 tips for making the most out of our system. 

1. SET UP YOUR PLAN. Log in (your username is the email address you used to register) and tell us about your goals, recent races, current routine, and when you’d like to workout, rest, and cross train. We’ll use that information to design your training plan. Remember: races aren’t the only goals you can target. With movecoach, you can challenge yourself to step, walk, run, bike, or swim a certain distance over a certain period of time, or post the most workouts of your favorite fitness activity.

How to: On the App, select the calendar icon to the left of the home icon. Toggle to the “Goals” page, and click on the upper right-hand corner of the box that says “Current Goal.” On a computer, click on “Goals & Results” and select “+Goal.”

2. TRACK YOUR PROGRESS. Download our iPhone or Android app  to track workouts. You can also sync runcoach with Garmin, Nike+, Apple HealthKit, Strava, Runkeeper, Fitbit and Jawbone, so activity tracked with those services automatically uploads to your movecoach log. 

How to:
On the App, select “Sync a Service” from the Me icon on the bottom-left corner of the screen, and toggle to the “More” screen. On a computer, select "Sync a service” from the upper left-hand corner of the Training page.

3. CREATE A PERSONAL CHALLENGE. As you participate in the company-wide effort to move more, create a personal fitness challenge that revolve around your own goals. Aim to post the most workouts of your favorite class or fitness activity. Or challenge yourself to step, walk, run, cycle, or swim a certain distance in a certain time.

How to: On the App, click on the flag icon to the right of the home icon. On a computer, go to  “Account Settings,” and select a team. Or select “Challenge” to join an ongoing challenge or choose your own. Click on “Invite Friends” to encourage your co-workers to join your Challenge. You can encourage one another as your movement adds up, or enjoy a little friendly competition!

4. HIGH FIVE YOUR FRIENDS. Giving and getting support from your friends and colleagues is one of the funnest parts of the challenge. High five others for their hard work, and enjoy getting your own.

How to: On the App, click on the flag icon to the right of the home icon. Click on the  “Leaderboard,” then select on “Latest Achievements.” Click on the hand outline—you’ll see it turn solid blue— to give others a virtual “high five.” If you’re on a computer, go to  “Account Settings,” and select a team.

5. ADJUST YOUR PLAN AS YOU GO. You can recalculate your plan at any time. Adjust your plan as you make fitness breakthroughs, so you don’t stuck in a rut, and keep improving to unleash your potential on race day.  If you have to take time off, you can make room for periods of inactivity so that you can safely get back on track toward reaching your goals.

How to: On the App, select  the calendar icon to the left of the home icon on the bottom of the screen. Select “Adjust Schedule” from the top of the Training screen. If you’re on a computer, you’ll find “Adjust Schedule” on the upper right-hand corner of the Training screen.

6. REACH OUT FOR HELP. Our staff of USATF, USAT, and RRCA-certified coaches are here to answer your training questions.

How to:  On the App, click on the “Me” icon at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Toggle to “More,” and select “Need some help?” from the top.  Or, email us  at coach@movecoach.com (*Be sure to put coach@runcoach.com on your list of safe contacts to ensure that you receive our responses.)
