We are pleased to share that we have just completed an update to our integration with Strava allowing you to automatically sync your training load from Strava to our Readiness Assessment; receive post-workout recommendations to help optimize your training and recovery; and more!
In this post, I’ll explain the benefits of connecting Rewire to Strava and how Rewire can help you get the most out of your workouts. But first, what’s Rewire? Rewire is a human performance app that provides evidence-based solutions for tracking athlete readiness, building mental resilience, and improving mind/body recovery. Strava is a social network for athletes which allows athletes to track and share their workout data.
Why Rewire + Strava?
Connecting your Strava account allows Rewire to analyze your workout data, providing a seamless way to measure your current training load. Rewire will also give you post-workout recommendations tailored to your readiness state, either adding mental load through Neuro-Training if you are in an excellent cognitive state or providing you with a Mindset Recovery session designed to optimize mind and body recovery.
Connecting Rewire to Strava also lets you share Neuro-Training workouts and Mindset Recovery sessions that you complete in the app with your followers on Strava, meaning they can see all the hard work you are putting in to train both your mind and body.
Strava has an extensive list of integrations that support many of the devices and apps you are already using to track your workouts. This means that Rewire will be able to get your workout data from a device supported through Strava. If you’d rather not post publicly on Strava – you can always set your privacy settings to ‘Only You’ in the Strava app.
Auto-Sync Training Load from Strava
Once you connect Strava, we’ll automatically sync yesterday’s workouts from Strava to pre-fill your training load in our Readiness Assessment. Duration is based on the length of your workouts and intensity is calculated using your heart rate or power data. You can still adjust duration or intensity if you need. Training load forms just one part of our Readiness Assessment, which takes a holistic approach across cognitive, emotional and physical domains to provide you with actionable readiness insights and recommendations.
After finishing a Strava workout, open up the Rewire app for a post-workout recommendation. Based on your data we will recommend a relevant post-workout Mindset Recovery session, featuring a range of recovery protocols including guided breathing, binaural beats and subliminal priming which have been tailored to your readiness state. If you are in an excellent cognitive state we will recommend a post-workout Neuro-Training workout designed to build your mental resilience.
Share Your Rewire Workouts on Strava
We’ve also improved the way we post Rewire sessions to Strava allowing you to now share Mindset Recovery sessions as well as Neuro-Training workouts. You can select which sessions you’d like to post as well as whether you’d like to share notes by going to Settings -> Configure Third-Party Integrations -> Strava.
Workouts in History Log
You’ll also be able to see all your Strava workouts alongside your Rewire Neuro-Training and Mindset Recovery session in our history log.
