We have one for East, but we're kinda tight knit so let's make a group for PAX Prime and show those East lovin' bicep curlin' bastids who is truly the fittest!

And we now have a group.

If you have any qualms with the date/time bring it up in the discussion!

    I understand, really, I do. But believe me, if we get a big community like PAX East it will feel great to have a lot of people giving you props for being awesome.

    Would have joined, but I don't have a fitocracy account :( sorry! They give out the invites sometimes on SA but I never manage to snag one.

  • tsrblketsrblke Registered User regular
    I have a fitocracy account and am on a diet so this is geat, but it appears to not like IE9, it keeps telling me I need to get "Chrome Frame" which, I hated frankly. I happen to really like IE9, so unless someone has another option.....

  • kemikalkemikal Registered User regular
    I've never used Fitocracy, but I'm willing to give it a try.
    The excitement of having a new job has worn off and lately all I do when I get home is sit in front of my PC and play LoL with the BF. ;P

    Anything that gives me a little extra "nudge" to workout when I am feeling lazy is a good thing!

    I think Fitocracy is out of beta (releasing on time, hurr) and you don't need an invite. If you still do, shoot me a PM and I'll send you one.

    Just got a fitbit and treadmill in the hopes of kicking my ass's ass before pax. I'm in. :)

  • RavengerRavenger Trolololo Registered User regular
    However, on this note, if anybody any questions about working out, exercise, etc. feel free to ask; I work as a personal trainer, have multiple nationally accredited certifications, and have about a year left in my B.S. in Kinesiology; so I know a little bit :)

    I can use this! I worked out at a gym with my friend 2-3 times a week for 5 weeks. I felt great and I was definitely seeing results, but then I stopped. It's been two weeks and those results have disappeared. It's my goal to be fit come PAX.

  • DarkAonDarkAon Portland, ORRegistered User regular

    Oh nice, last time I checked it wasn't. Signed up and joined the group as LittleIcarus

    Anyone in the group a runner? I'll be training for a half marathon during Prime and likely will need to do some LSD runs. Would love a buddy!

    I'm training my cardio for a 5k so you'd be running a bit out of my league.

    I run 3 miles on my light days.. Which is practically a 5k, I know, but if you're up for it I'd still like a buddy. I keep a slower pace, which might help.

    I may be an East lovin' bicep curlin' bastid but your stuck with me now as I'll be at prime too. Glad to see a prime group popping up for this. The more the merrier IMO.

    So is this a long distance/moral support group or are there actual meetups at the event?
    Either way /joined

  • vgcvgc Registered User regular
    I don't see why we shouldn't have meetups that involve fitness. I'm going to do a shameless plug and say that there's going to be a Hunger Games tomorrow at volunteer park. That's definitely gonna be some cardio.

  • PayneTraynePayneTrayne Canuck Registered User regular
    We will definitely TRY to have a meet-up but the one at East didn't go over too well because it's PAX and stuff happens. I'll try and schedule one once the PAX schedule is posted though and see what works well for everyone. Probably on the Friday or Sunday (just as a guess).

    I hadn't heard of fitocracy before but I like what I see so far. And it's always good to have more motivation. ^.^

  • SarahstraszaSarahstrasza Registered User
    pointless to be part of a fitness group, if you cant go because they sell out in 6 hours.

    Welcome to the fit side. Or at least, the fit side that likes to brag about their levels.

    Welp, the Hunger Games meetup I was planning to go to got cancelled today, so I just resorted to taking an hour long walk. Oh well, at least it's something.

    So I was thinking of maybe writing up some basic weight training workouts for those in this group that are perhaps unfamiliar with exercise program construction to help get you guys on the right track-does that sound interesting to y'all?

    GoneCross on fitocracy. I work out fairly regularly anyways, figured I'd convert my calories into digital achievements too.

    It says, "This App is Incompataible with this iphone" when I try to download it. I have a 3G but I didn't see anywhere that it wouldn't work on my phone...I really want to try fitocracy. Anyone else have this issue?

    I mostly lurk on these forums, but thought I'd comment here. I'm in the middle of some exams right now, but right after I'm starting c25k. Thanks for making the fitocracy group. It should be good motivation :)
