Fitocracy

Fitocracy (www.fitocracy.com) is another sports-tracking tool, as well as a community with interactive features. It has the additional benefit of providing better support than others in the areas of resistance training and body-weight exercises.

Note

At the time I used Fitocracy, it was released as a beta version.

Along with tracking your training data, Fitocracy is built around an award system where you earn points for each exercise bout and eventually work your way up to different levels. According to its own getting started guide, “Fitocracy is a game you play to improve your fitness.”

It seems to be designed to initiate friendly competition against your friends or yourself, similar to the model of computer gaming, but with a decidedly fitter result. Figure 2-11 shows a profile for a Fitocracy beginner.
