Your Overall Fitness Level number can range from 0-100. It is a relative measure of Fitness, meaning it compares your performance to the rest of the community. A Fitness Level of 90 means you are in the 90th percentile of the community in that particular lift, WOD, etc. As athletes everywhere continue to improve, it will become harder and harder to stay in front of the curve.
Select your fitness level tab and you will see an overview of your Fitness and your progress, including your overall fitness level, fitness level for each category and the accuracy/confidence level of each category.
You can select one of the categories which will show you the scores and levels of those respective lifts. You will also be able to see the date this lift was completed and the expiration date.
Your Fitness Level is determined by averaging your performance across 8 different categories. For each of these categories you will receive a Category Level, as seen in the bar chart below
Fitness Level Categories
The categories include Power Lifts and Olympic Lifts, which are determined by your average levels of those respective lifts. The Speed category looks at your average levels for Shorter Runs and Rows (100m to 1000m), while the Endurance category looks at Longer Runs and Rows (1000m to 10km). There are also four Conditioning/MetCon Categories. We have divided Benchmark workouts and other popular workouts into four different categories. The first three include Bodyweight, Light, and Heavy workouts, all 20 minutes and under. The Long category includes workouts where the average time to completion is greater than 20 minutes. By combining your levels in these 8 categories, we get a broad measure of your overall Fitness.
