We made a change to the site so that all members get our new Fitness tracker. We have made a lot of improvements to the new tracker, so it should only add to your experience. However, if you have any problems or issues, please email

Original Announcement in June 2012
Hi everyone,

We are happy to announce we made some upgrades to our Fitness Tracker, adding more tracking options plus making everything more streamlined.

A quick summary of the changes are:

- There is now just one “unified search” box where you can search for cardio, strength, and other activities all in one place. (Previously, you searched for and tracked all of these activities separately.)
- You now can see and track calories burned for all activities, including strength training. This has been a long-standing request from our members.
- You can copy exercises to another day and also create exercise groupings, much like you would "food groupings" in the Nutrition Tracker. This makes it easier to track a group of exercises you tend to do multiple times a week, for example.

Here is a new tutorial video that showcases the changes.

If you have any questions or feedback, please leave a comment below. We hope you enjoy this simpler way to track your fitness—and the calories burned for more of the activities you are doing!

Dave H.

    just looked, does this mean I have to go and "group" the exercises that I had showing up for my strength training already and didn't today?
It's going to take more time and have me sitting at this computer more at least for a little bit! =(

    Thank you so much for the calorie count on the exercises. Saves me looking it up on another site and putting it in my notes. Long time coming for this. Much appreciated.

    Heading over to check it out now! This really excites me and I'm sure will lead to me using it more. I never bothered tracking st because it didn't give me any feedback, like calories. This should be good!
