Dear Strength Coach and Personal Trainer,
Today’s blog is from guest blogger Ian Worthington from Konkura.com.
I thought that you might be interested in what Ian has to say, so I leave you with his words:
Konkura.com is a new way to make sport and exercise more fun and engaging.
Konkura is completely free and offers users the chance to join or create any sport, fitness or exercise challenge imaginable, making training and exercise more varied and motivational than ever before.
Whether you’re a serious athlete or just someone looking to get in a little better shape, there’s a challenge for you at Konkura.com. And if you can’t find a challenge that’s just right, you can create your own challenge in moments, then find new friends with similar goals and interests to compete with, discuss training tips or just exchange friendly banter and mutual encouragement.
Konkura provides a free basis for personal trainers, coaches and other fitness professionals to improve client engagement by setting challenges to motivate their clients’ training between sessions.
This leads to improved client retention by making exercise more fun and varied, and by fostering a sense of community amongst groups of clients. It also acts as a shop front; by creating great challenges that many people participate in, Konkura helps fitness professionals to recruit new clients and build their professional brand.
Challenges on Konkura can involve any event that can be measured, e.g. via time, distance, repetitions or other measures, and can include combinations of many different events. Simple, single-event challenges can be set up in moments, whilst Konkura’s advanced challenge engine allows users the flexibility to create challenges around multiple events and entire workouts, or include corrections for factors like weight and age. Anyone can join in a challenge by posting their score together with comments, photos and videos.
