Outside magazine, America’s leading active-lifestyle publication, today announced that it will launch the Outside Fitness Planner, an interactive web/mobile fitness and training tool powered by TrainingPeaks.com. The new program will allow readers to access the same expert health and fitness advice they have come to rely on from Outside Magazine along with world-class tools to track exercise, diet and map routes.
To create the Outside Fitness Planner, Outside collaborated with some of the world’s top coaches to develop a series of one-of-a-kind, comprehensive fitness regimens. The fitness programs will be delivered to users directly through a variety of platforms –via email, text, and online— offering flexibility and freedom to follow a plan no matter where you are. Training programs range from ‘how to train for a marathon’ to ‘how to get in the best shape of your life’. In addition, diet and exercise plans designed by renowned experts will be available. Outside readers can also upload workouts from more than 80 popular GPS, heart rate, pace and power tracking devices; search, map and share routes; track and plan nutrition; and get daily emails with their next day’s planned workout.
“By combining our award-winning health and fitness content with TrainingPeaks.com, our readers have access to the same unparalleled software tools used by our favorite athletes and coaches to track their progress and monitor their overall fitness,” said Outside’s editor, Christopher Keyes. “It’s the perfect platform for achieving any fitness goal, whether it’s just trying to get back in shape or attempting to set a new personal best in a marathon.”
