Run Trainer Achievements: Stay Motivated and Push Your Limits

Running can sometimes be a challenging task, especially when you’re training solo without a team to motivate you when things get tough. To ensure you stay motivated, we’ve completely revamped our achievement system at Run Trainer. Now, you not only earn medals occasionally but can earn them with every run and continuously set higher goals.

Introduction of One-Time and Repeatable Medals

Within Run Trainer for iOS you can now enjoy an entirely new achievement system with new medals that include both one-time and repeatable medals. These medals are based on various criteria such as the number of training sessions, distance covered, time, completed schedules, and specific training goals. Whether you’re just starting your running journey or are an experienced runner, there are always medals to strive for and stack up.

One-Time Medals

One-time medals are awarded for significant achievements, such as your first 5K, completing a specific training plan, or reaching a new milestone in your running journey. These medals mark important moments and give you a great sense of accomplishment and pride.

Repeatable Medals

Repeatable medals are designed to keep you constantly motivated. With every run, you can earn medals again for reaching smaller goals compared to milestones, such as improving your personal records, consistently completing your training sessions, and regular running. By stacking these medals, you are continually rewarded for improving your performance and setting higher goals for yourself.

Stay Motivated with Every Run

This combination is especially designed to keep your motivation levels high. The idea is that you have something to look forward to and work towards with every run, regardless of your experience level. Consistent training and improving your performance in a sensible way are key to successfully earning these medals and, most importantly, achieving your personal goals.

Share Your Successes

We understand how important it is to share your successes with friends and family. Run Trainer lets you easily share your earned medals and statistics through the sharing option that works with all apps supported within iOS. Whether you want to share your new medals on social media, via messaging apps, or other platforms, it has never been easier to showcase your achievements.

Statistics and Medals in the App

In your personal statistics overview in the app, we now have a special section reserved for your medals. This gives you a clear and visually appealing overview of your achieved performances per run. You can see which medals you have already earned and which are still within reach. This overview helps you stay motivated and keep your goals clearly in sight.

Future Updates

The medals will continue to be expanded. We are already working on adding new goals and improving the sharing features, so you always have new challenges and can share your successes in the best possible way.

Tips for Success

To make the most of the new system, it is important to set realistic goals for yourself. Work towards specific medals within a certain time frame to stay motivated. Here are some tips to improve your performance and prevent injuries:

  • Set Realistic Goals: Start with small, achievable goals and gradually work towards larger achievements.
  • Stay Consistent: Regular training is key to success. Try to stick to a regular schedule and follow your lessons consistently.
  • Listen to Your Body: It is important to listen to your body and prevent injuries. Take rest days when needed and don’t push yourself too hard.
  • Vary Your Training: Mix up your training to work different muscle groups and prevent boredom.
  • Celebrate Your Successes: Don’t forget to celebrate your successes, no matter how small. Every step forward is an achievement in itself.

Your Feedback is Valuable
