This Irish owned business has successfully developed a unique website that combines the benefits of regular sporting activity with social interaction and networking for those that want it. The site is called www.legginit.com and has been designed to support individuals as they build and maintain their fitness or possibly act as an aid to managing a weight loss programme for others.
The site is free to use and allows sports people from many disciplines including runners, cyclists, and walkers to set up their own training log / profile and then maintain records of their training activities, their progress against the achievement of a particular goal.
Users can upload their preferred jogging, walking, cycling and activity routes and offer thoughts opinions and recommendations for various routes based on a host of parameters including degree of difficulty, length of route, duration of route based on fitness level of individual, location (central or off the beaten track), personal feedback etc
For others the site offers a new dimension to training as it allows members to develop social networks with like-minded people through our face book link. Friends on legginit.com can then share advice, training routines, routes etc.
