    New ACP Utah Chapter Club on Strava wellness app

    (April 2021) We are happy to announce our Chapter has started a club page on Strava. To find us, search for Utah American College of Physicians in the club section of the app or go to www.strava.com/clubs/UtahACP. Strava is a social fitness tracking app that also links with other tools like Garmin, Fitbit, Zwfit, Peloton, and many others. It allows you to track and share cycling or running routes, as well as track other activities like skiing, weight training, and even rock climbing. The app is free, although there are more advanced options with a subscription. This has motivational applications for competition, inspiration, and fitness with the ability to connect with others and share routines, routes, and activities. Although we aren't yet able to meet in person, we are hopeful we can develop a sense of community through Strava and sharing our fitness achievements in our club. We are looking forward to receiving inspiration from seeing our members' achievements in the future!
