New Feature: Time-based custom workouts, new categories

The great feedback on keeps pouring in. Yago asked about a feature that I'm sure all of us have been missing. Time-based custom workouts.

For new custom workout entries, check the "Timed Workout?" check box to indicate that your entry should always be displayed in time format (12:12 vs. 12.2).

For existing custom workouts, you can edit your entries via your profile page. Click on the "Edit" link next to the workout in question, and select the "Custom Workout" and "Timed Workout" check boxes. That's it!

Also, for you rowers out there, now supports 500m, 1000m, 1500m and 2000m Rowing workouts.

Keep Tracking (and keep that feedback coming!)

New Feature: Gym group logs

So far you've been able to share an individual workout, your entire workout log or an individual graph, with a special link. This works great when you want to share with someone outside your workout group.

What about the community at your gym? What if you could "join" your gym on and have your stats automatically show up in a "group log" for your gym. Now you can.

You'll notice a new menu item called "My Gym". If you have not joined a gym on yet, you'll get a listing of the gym's we're currently working with. If you see your gym listed, join the fun! If you don't see your gym listed, tell them to contact me.

Once you "join" your gym on, you'll be able to view all the stat entries for your gym, including yours, in one place!

New Feature: Logging stats in time format

Many Crossfit workouts are not only tough, but you're supposed to do them as fast as you can! So far, on you've only been able to enter time in numbers. A time of 10:30 is easily logged as 10.5, but what about all those other not-so-nice looking fractions?

Starting today, will accept both numeric and time-based log entries. You may enter 10.5 or 10:30 and we'll do the right thing with it. You'll notice that your workout log and RSS feed has been updated appropriately. keeps track of other types of data too. You wouldn't want to see your weight logged in minutes, would you? You'll notice that some workouts, along with running pace and weight are displayed as numbers. This is also true for "Custom workouts", since each of those entries could be different.

New Feature: Quick Feedback!

While suits my needs perfectly right now, I'd like to get other users feedback on how it could be improved. Today I added a feedback forum powered by UserVoice.

You'll see a feedback tab on the left side of the screen, which you can use to quickly provide site feedback, or vote on current ideas. As specific ideas get voted on, I'll consider those as high priorities for enhancing

New Feature: Share your stats with anyone

I've been using to track each of my workouts so far, and I'm really happy with how it works. One thing I noticed was that I'd get done with a particularly intense workout, and want to share my results with someone. I came up with a few ideas, and I'm happy to announce that now features sharing of workout stats!

Now you can:
- Share a specific workout entry with someone
- Share your entire workout log with someone
- Share your workout log as an RSS feed

Keep in mind that this sharing feature uses some nifty technology to ensure that if you share one workout entry, that person won't be able to find other workout entries of yours. This way, you could choose to share that crazy workout from last Tuesday, but not your weight stat you recorded on Saturday!
