Chelsey, Maelin and Duane all celebrate PRs and big lifts for their CrossFit Total.
Our #PODIUMWEEK continues today with a test of our endurance, Cindy. Cindy was first introduced to the CrossFit community on May 14, 2005 that is 13 and a half years ago! How long have you been doing CrossFit? Did you know it's been around that long?
I have written several times about the very cool lifestyle feature in Beyond the Whiteboard. Read this post if you missed it.
The BTWB Lifestyle feature helps you keep track of your sleep, hydration, mobility, nutrition, fish oil consumption and how your body feels. That is 4 of the 7 Whole Life Challenge daily habits. Since sleep, hydration, mobility and nutrition are common to both programs, you can bet that these 4 lifestyle factors have the greatest affect on your health and wellness.
We will be launching our own in-house lifestyle and nutrition challenge in January using the BTWB integrated Lifestyle and nutrition tracking features. We will not be doing another Whole Life Challenge, instead we will doing our own. How cool is that?
Our BTWB Lifestyle and nutrition challenge will take advantage of the tracking features in BTWB. You might as well start using these features now! It will be so nice to just have ONE APP for tracking our workouts, mobility, hydration, sleep, fish oil and nutrition! I'm psyched.
Our challenge will include regular check-ins with me and a nutrition coach with whom we are partnering. We will have weekly weigh-ins and measurements. We will set the challenge up just like the WLC. Part of your final score will be Lifestyle points, part will be workout improvement and part will be body composition.
So how do you get to the BTWB lifestyle feature? Read on to learn.
To access the Lifestyle feature, open the app on your phone. You can access it on your computer as well, but I know most of you use the BTWB phone app. Open the app and scroll down until you see Lifestyle.
Click on Lifestyle to open the tracking feature. from here it's super easy to quickly score your sleep, how much water you've consumed, how much time you spent on mobility, how you ate, how much fish oil you took and how you feel. Notice the scoreboard at the top of the Lifestyle screen. As you earn daily lifestyle points, you are compared to other people in the gym and all other BTWB users. You can see in the screen below that no one in our gym is currently logging lifestyle points and that the average daily lifestyle point value across all BTWB users is 56 (which is in the 75th percentile.)
Your Lifestyle points also show up in the Macros view. To see that go back to the BTWB main screen and click on Macros. Now you will see this.
Notice the Checkmark, Zzzs and Meditation icons? Those are the lifestyle points I logged for Monday. These icons will be very important for our New Year challenge. Read here to learn all about the BTWB Macros feature.
