Just in time for the New Year, Under Armour acquired MapMyFitness, the fitness technology company fueling one of the world’s largest digital fitness communities.
It’s quite fitting that the leader of innovation in sports performance would expand its reach into the digital fitness world, making it easier for athletes everywhere to achieve their fitness goals.
The MapMyFitness community is one of the largest networks in the world at over 20 million users. It offers a multifaceted suite of web and mobile platforms for users to geographically map their workouts, record training sessions and share their routines with other community members. The mobile platform is available for free download for iPhone, Android and Blackberry users.
This acquisition is a game-changer for the way athletes train and perform, and will be equally powerful for non-athletes who have made New Year’s resolutions to live healthier, more active lives.
