I am new and confused. How do I get points for my own workout such as running?

  • I like the idea and motivation of points and would like to use dailyburns videos to change things up but I already have a routine I like. How do I get credit for those workouts? I have both the old and new dailyburn and they don't seem to talk to each other. I have put my workouts in the old dailyburn but my point values are movine in the new one. Any help?

    Great point, at this time though this site doesn't reward you for working out or eating right. It rewards you for using the site. So you get points for clicking links, answering questions, watching videos, and stuff like that. I know I watch these videos and I get tired so I stop and take a break, but I still get my full 250 points for watching it. It really only cares that you are interacting with the site, it's sort of lopsided, but that's the way it is right now.

      codemonkey2841, Are there any things you think you should be getting points on based on the badges that you do not get yet?

      I just see things like the Plank badges or the "Share a Workout" badge and understand that there is likely something in the works, just not implemented yet. Trust me, I know how the dev cycle goes. :)

    I agree it would be great if there were a way to log other workouts, like going on a run or (gasp!) doing some other workout video for more variety. Earning points gets kind of addicting!
