    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.
