New “Fitness Level Weekly” Track

Does your Fitness Level have a Green check mark? If not, our new “Fitness Level Weekly” track can help. It is now available as a free public track you can follow on BTWB.

(Located on the web under: Menu > “Your Tracks”, On mobile under: More > “YOUR NAME” > “Your Tracks”)

The most powerful feature on BTWB is our Fitness Level feature, which looks at your capacity across 8 different categories and assigns you a level from 0-100 for each of them. But this only works well if you’ve completed multiple workouts within each category. That’s why we created this new track, to help you get a more complete Fitness Level.

16.5 is a miserable WOD. It was miserable when it was 14.5, and it’s just as bad now. As Coach Glassman (CrossFit’s founder) has often said, “No, it doesn’t ever get any easier. You wouldn’t want it to either.” As you get better you just have to go faster. It will be great to see how many people can beat their 14.5 time. If you haven’t had the pleasure of doing this WOD before, you will understand Dave Castro’s pre-16.5 hint once you’re finished (hint: roadkill).
