    Anyone in yet? I just got in and it looks really nice, particularly the PR tracking. What do you think?

      Sounds good... I need some sort of motivation to log my workouts.

      How do I get in? It said it's not open to the public yet. Is there a beta?

              So far my biggest complaint is that it doesn't recognize the law of diminishing returns(working out beyond a point yields less results), not to mention overtraining(working out way too much is counterproductive). But in their defense, it would be really hard to implement it.

                So I'm in, logged a couple activities... and really wondering... what's the point? Takes a double click to do everything, I'm not getting reporting. I'm just getting a retarded little set of points and a badge, which as a game developer, this shortcut "gamification" really turns me off.

                So... where's meat?

                  So far the thing that makes it look worthwhile to me is that it will track what you've done. I often forget my PRs on less important lifts, so this will help with that. Then there's the social aspect. Plus it's nicer than Excel(my previous choice) for logging.

                    Whenever I log WOs at the gym (pen & pad) they are hardly legible. This does leave a much nicer record than my scribbles.

                        If you're already motivated to train and save logs then you're right, fitocracy doesn't have much to offer. But speaking as someone who spent hundreds of hours leveling a Final Fantasy 11 character, it has something to offer to many people.

                          +1!

                          I'm with you Laconophile. Being a big geek myself I think leveling up based on my physical fitness is pretty cool, although very geeky, but also an extra motivation. I input my most recent session of PBF and already gained a level!

                              But speaking as someone who has spent thousands of hours developing reasons for people to grind, I see it as an anemic attempt at taking some of foursquare's celebrity, at a time when foursquare is not too far from dying off like the albatross it is.
