WM Group - after 50 members join the group there will, apparently, be some challenges.

http://www.fitocracy.com/group/1177/

Mod Edit by MattyFTM: Tested's Ana has set up a special invite code for whiskey media members: "WMEDIA". Using this invite code will get you into the Fitocracy beta and automatically add you to the Whiskey Media group. So just use the invite code WMEDIA if you want to get into the beta!!!

So after actually doing some half decent exercise and logging it on fitocracy, I want to do more just to see my points go up again. Whoever thought of applying an RPG style levelling system to fitness is a genius. It'll definitely give me some encouragement to lose weight.

Does the invite MyaSharona put in the OP not still work? When I click on it it still gives me a sign up form. It'll give an error message if they've all been used up. Either way, here's my invite link: [EDIT: Link removed, no more invites left] There is still 5 invites left on it. Anyone who wants to sign up, feel free to use them.

Just a note: I'm pretty sure everyone gets 10 invites when they sign up, so please be kind and post them here so more people can keep signing up. My invite code is nearly done, just one invite left.

Alright so I joined. Any recommended exercises with no equipment? Wanna basically do everything. Abs, arms, legs chest, shoulders. All I have are two dumbbells of different size. I've been using them for certain exercises, but recommendations are appreciated.

@mccarron: While I'd love to take the credit, Ana is the one who set up the WM Group. I just invited all the duders to join in so we could give those tested folk a run for their money. ;-)

This is great, thanks for the invite. I actually invented this kind of a system for myself a few years ago, using pen, paper and notepad. Needless to say this is a bit easier and more motivating - the one I did didn't work because of well, it sucked.

Awesome with a group as well.

edit: Will of course give back invites - after my, currently sleeping, girlfriend gets to nab one.

I've updated the OP with details of the new Whiskey Media invite code Ana set up. Just use the invite code WMEDIA if you want to get into fitocracy, and it'll also automatically add you to the Whiskey Media group.

This thing is pretty cool. I don't really see myself using it because I already made a habit out of going to the gym and stuff. I might be tempted to start inputting info once there's a mobile app.

I signed up with that code. I'm sorta new to personal fitness stuff, but I hope this motivates me!

You can link it with RunKeeper to automatically log stuff. Haven't tried it myself, though.

I'll be joining the group once I head back to school (< 1 week, oh crap!) and have convenient access to a gym to do work at. Hopefully the Whiskey Media group stays active for a long time, I'd be in for some cool challenges!

Having a mobile app or at least a mobile optimized site would be awesome, it's weird they don't have that out already. Maybe by the time I'm ready to use the site, those features will be added.

Just tried this with RunKeeper on my Android. Couldn't be any easier, really - tracks both time and distance accurately. Then just go to Fitocracy, have it fetch the activity from RunKeeper and log it. Got 89 points for 40 minutes of walking.

Nope, you don't need anything special, you just enter in any exercise you've done and it awards you points and achievements for your hard work.

I've been in the beta since launch, but haven't started using it until today. Joined the Whiskey Media group to connect to my fellow duders, and am posting here to bring this back up to the homepage. Everyone, join Ftocracy, it's absolutely a much more fun way to keep track of your exercise. Looking forward to seeing you guys on there!
