Field: Sport

Problem: There is no way to report the use of activities performed on the Arc Trainer. Currently, the closest thing to it would be elliptical but that isn't accurate since the arc trainer uses running motion.

Solution: Add the type of Arc Trainer to the field Sport.

Other information: This cross training equipment is becoming more widely used because it is a hybrid of an elliptical and running. Also, it is the cross-training exercise of choice by 6x ncaa champion Parker Valby, which means it is only going to get more popular.

Your idea has been shared with the product team. Right now, we aren't exploring the possibility of adding/implementing this activity type, and your suggestion will be archived. Please understand that we  receive a very high volume of feature requests, and cannot realistically implement all of them in the foreseeable future. Thank you for taking the time to submit your idea and we look forward to your continued engagement in the Community Hub.

am rehabbing from stress fracture and using arc trainer alot now.  Best long distance runner in D1 on women's side heavily relies on it for cardio/fitness.  Would not be surprised to see it gain traction for x-training given her success.

Strava DEFIINITELY needs to add arc trainer.  Google Parker Valby and arc trainer.  Likely to make the 10k olympic team and still a chance to make 5k if one of the 3 qualifiers backs out due to qualifying for 1500.  Once the feature is added Strava should extend an invite for Parker to use the activity 🙂
