Your Training Routine Turned into Art

Your Training Routine Turned into Art

Sisu 1
Sisu, the latest from a quirky design start-up out of London called Upstate, is inventive way to use all those data-documented workouts that you’ve tracked with apps like Stave and Runkeeper. Working in consort with the apps, Sisu turns every turn, climb, and dip in elevation into a graphic, wall-ready record. Sign up at www.madewithsisu.com/ and their team will help you personalize the details of your final 12”x16” poster. Go full navel-gazing and upload every ride or run you’ve recorded, or narrow it down to show the training routes that helped you strategize your latest conquest. Boilerplate stats at the bottom summarize the collective effort articulated in each squiggle. Of course, routes with turns and elevation shifts will look a bit more aesthetically dramatic than out-and-back runs in the city. So we encourage you to adjust your daily routine accordingly. And, in an oddly synchronistic and sorta related matter, Suunto recently announced that they’ve teamed with Strava and they can now upload the data captured in their devices to your Strava profile. This comes as part of the Suunto Sisu Strava Challenge, which asks Strava members to run 40 miles between May 17th and June 1. And for the record, Sisu is the Finnish word for bravery and determination—and also something that’s apparently trending in the world of fitness apps.
