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.
