How long does it actually take to get out of shape?

How quickly it takes for detraining (also called deconditioning) to occur once you stop exercising depends not only on your age, how fit you are, and how long you have been exercising, but also on what type of exercise you were doing and at what level.

Below we show you an infographic of how long does it actually take to get our of shape. This is an estimate data as said before.

RunnerSquare Training Programs: Get out of that Running Rut

We’ve all been there before. Nothing is more plaguing to a runner than feeling as if you are stuck in a rut. Whether it is going your normal route, pulling on the same chafing shoes, too-similar-morning slumps or the frustration when you just cannot beat your last PR no matter how hard you try – we get it.

We at RunnerSquare, the running network made for runners by runners, have been there before, too. When we were designing our app, we wanted to make sure to provide all our runners with a way to spruce things up and break free from their mundane routines. That is why we created the RunnerSquare Challenges and specially designed Training Programs!

How does it work?

  • Set a workout goal and get audio feedback as you go to help you reach it (It’s almost as if you had your own personal trainer with you!)

Runners Around on RunnerSquare: Find your perfect running buddy

Have you ever reluctantly tried to get yourself to go on a run and felt like there was no one else in the world who felt like running either?

Maybe you wished you could have somehow seen if anyone was running in that moment on some sort of map and been instantly motivated?

With RunnerSquare, you no longer have to wish. Our unique Runners Around feature lets you view other runners in your local vicinity on an interactive map updated in real time. You have the option to either view only people you follow on RunnerSquare or view all the people who are currently running with the app.

pantalla4When you click on the orange bubbles of runners around you, you can instantly view their RunnerSquare profile and learn more about them, and possibly support them if you already don’t.

Whether you just want to zoom in and see if anyone in your neighborhood is running nearby, or you are just curious to zoom out and see how many people are running across the globe from Paris to Sydney to New York, Runners Around is sure to encourage you.

Wouldn’t it be easier to get out and run if you knew fellow runners were also running at the very same time? Being encouraged and getting motivated is that easy now.
