As some of you have noticed, we are rolling out a new concept for healthy living called Base.
Our main objectives with this are to make adopting a healthy lifestyle easy and uncomplicated. We want to encourage consistent physical activity on a daily basis.
Your Base is the 17-minute minimum of daily movement you need to establish a habit that helps build lifelong fitness. How you do it is entirely up to you - you might enjoy swimming, bouldering, or a game of soccer with friends in the park, as long as it’s intentional and lasts at least 17 minutes, you are hitting your Base.
Any training that you complete in the Training App will count towards your Base, as will any other activity that you have synced with either Apple Health or Google Health Connect via 3rd party apps, so long as you have enabled the respective connection in your Profile settings menu. So if you are using other apps to log your fitness or activity data, they will only sync with Freeletics if they are compatible with Apple Health or Google Health Connect, depending on your mobile device.
You must make sure that any activity that you want to count towards your Base is logged in your respective Health app, if it is not, then it will not count towards your Base.
You can see if you have achieved your Base on the Coach tab of the app, and some of you will also see a blue progress bar visualizing this, but some of you will not see this for the time being.
Just finally, whilst your Coach will count towards to your Base, any activities logged externally will not have any impact on your Coach Training, but we are exploring this for a future release. Interested in helping? Fill out this survey to share more insights about your other fitness activities.
