VR fitness app FitXR announces new integration with Strava

In Virtual Reality News

March 17, 2023 – FitXR, a virtual reality (VR) fitness app, has recently announced a new app integration with Strava, a leading subscription platform for connected fitness, to provide FitXR members a more comprehensive snapshot of their fitness journey through shared data.

FitXR stated that the partnership marks another major moment in the company’s commitment to providing an elevated and accessible digital experience that enables users to set and achieve fitness goals with ease.

FitXR’s platform merges immersive VR with total body workouts, offering users classes within five distinct workout studios: Box, Dance, HIIT, Sculpt and Combat. Available on the Meta Quest 2, FitXR provides users with an engaging multiplayer experience, along with constantly refreshed classes, environments and music.

Strava is a subscription platform with more than 100 million active users in 195 countries. The platform offers a holistic view of a user’s active lifestyle, and includes sports, fitness and activity data shown on user devices.

“As more people look to take control of their health and fitness goals, there is a greater need for the ability to easily access and track key metrics across platforms,” said Kelly Cosentino, FitXR’s Head of Fitness. “FitXR’s integration with Strava provides our members with a holistic digital solution that easily fits into their lifestyles. We are excited to empower people at all levels of activity by helping them to account daily for every step, mile, elbow strike and dance move completed on any terrain – whether it be virtual or physical.”

Through FitXR’s free companion app, users are now able to seamlessly share their preferred data automatically after every workout with the Strava app. With this integration, FitXR users on the free companion app can seamlessly share their workouts to the Strava platform. The new Strava integration will unlock the ability for FitXR users to set goals, connect with an active community, and share their virtual activities with other active people around the world.

FitXR added that the strategic partnership furthers the company’s mission to build the most immersive virtual fitness club experience that is designed to be customizable for individual preferences. Through increased data connectivity, FitXR users will be better positioned to get the most out of FitXR’s virtual offerings as well as the apps that motivate and inspire them to keep moving, according to the company.
