I am seeking assistance in using Splunk to pull in Strava API data, but am having difficulties doing so with the information Strava is giving in the link below and my limited understanding of API pulls.

https://strava.github.io/api/

I have used used the example of using twitter and got that up and running, but cannot get the REST API pulls working with Strava as it sits now.

There are a couple of steps you need to take here. Firstly, in order to test I created a Strava app:
https://www.strava.com/settings/api
This will provide you with the Client ID and Client Secret.

In Splunk, I used the REST API Modular Input App and created the following inputs.conf:

[rest://Strava]
auth_type = oauth2
endpoint = https://www.strava.com/api/v3/athlete
http_method = GET
index = main
index_error_response_codes = 1
response_type = json
sequential_mode = 0
sourcetype = strava-api
streaming_request = 1
disabled = 0
oauth2_access_token = <your access token>
oauth2_client_id = <your client id>
oauth2_client_secret = <your client secret>

You can also test using curl to ensure that the oauth is working. From there it's a matter of defining the parameters per their API documentation (http://strava.github.io/api/)
