Bring the outdoors indoors with Tunturi Routes
The summer season is almost over and the dark days are just around the corner. It's time to move your workout from outside to inside again. But of course, looking at the wall inside on your cardio trainer or looking at the traffic passing by is not as nice as working out in nature. We give you five good reasons to continue your workouts indoors with Tunturi Routes.
1. Find new motivationTraining regularly is the key to success in achieving your fitness goals. You can do this with the help of a device such as a cardio trainer. But a device is also just a means to reach a certain goal. The real challenge lies in maintaining the discipline and motivation needed to achieve your workout goals.
A training device is a godsend if the weather is not good for an outdoor workout. Training outdoors requires more willpower, especially on rainy or windy days or when it's dark. For example, when you train at home, you don't have to worry about the traffic rushing by.
With Tunturi Routes, you can keep your training varied and challenging. It offers new motivation for the next workout, even when the weather isn't good to train outside.
2. Train at your desired levelsTraining with a treadmill, rowing machine, exercise bike of elliptical trainer means that you can mechanically influence parameters that affect the intensity of your workout.
In outdoor training, the natural environmental factors affect the intensity of your workout. For example, the slope when you cycle up a hill, headwind while running or the waves in a rowing race. If you train indoors, you can set these variables yourself on your device or via Tunturi Routes. Thus, you can simulate the intensity of your workout.
With Tunturi Routes, you have access to more than 400,000 kilometers of routes around the world. When you train with Tunturi Routes, your device automatically syncs with the elevation changes in the video. If the road goes up steeply, the resistance on your bike increases or the angle of inclination of your treadmill increases (depending on your trainer). As a result, there are always challenging workouts available, no matter what your desired workout level is.
3. Keep track of your performanceTunturi Routes keeps track of all your training stats, such as speed, distance, time and wattage. These are valuable parameters to track your progress and improve your results. Nothing is more motivating than literally being able to see that you are getting faster or stronger or making progress!
Example: Would you like to monitor your heart rate because you want to train on heart rate? This can be done via the integrated heart rate sensors that you find on most cardio devices. For the most accurate result, pair a heart rate monitor with the app. That way, you can keep exact track of your fitness progress.
4 Train with friendsWith the app, you can track people who also use Tunturi Routes. This allows you to train with or against each other, no matter where everyone in the world is at that moment. That way, you never have to train alone. Want to keep moving together or battle for the fastest time? It's up to you.
5 Upload your own route or videoDo you have a favourite route that you would like to do indoors? Or did you walk, cycle or row a nice route during the holidays and recorded it with a GoPro, action camera or app such as Runkeeper or Strava? Upload the route in the app and relive your holiday workout! That makes your training a recognizable experience even during the cold, dark or wet days.
The map function of Tunturi Routes allows you to upload your own GPX data route. For example, try the La Vuelta 2022 routes: we have already prepared the first stage in Utrecht (La Vuelta 2022 stage 1) for you.
