Fitness Tracker Enhancements Launched Today
Wednesday, June 20, 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.

Everyone's Fitness Tracker has been switched to the new tracker by default, but we also left the "old" functionality in place for those who want to take some time to get used to the changes. To revert back to the old Fitness Tracker, visit your Fitness Tracker page. Click the "Use Old Fitness Tracker" button toward the right side of the page (next to the new search box).

We will be working to update all Fitness Tracker FAQs and create a new tutorial video to showcase these changes later this week, so stay tuned for those additional resources.

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!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
