WHAT IS IT?
CrossFit is an evidence-based fitness program. Without collecting data on our performance in the gym, we lose a major component of tracking our progress over time. If you don’t keep track of your “Fran” time, max back squat, rounds of “Cindy”, etc. you will not have a reference point to test your fitness next time these workouts come up in the gym. Ideally the way you track your results should be easy, comprehensive, and provide you with the proper data to completely understand your CrossFit experience. Enter Beyond the Whiteboard.
Beyond the Whiteboard (also known as “BTWB”) is a web site and app (iOS & Android) that allows you to track your results at CrossFit NYC. As a CFNYC member you have free access to BTWB. The gym’s programming is pre-loaded into the BTWB system, so once you log in, you will be able to easily track your results each day, and over time you’ll be able to easily look up your results for any lift or WOD. BTWB also creates a fitness index, generates power graphs, and allows you to examine your results in many useful ways. You can also track bodyweight and general health habits if you choose to add that data into the mix.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Joining BTWB is quick and easy:
When you sign up for an account on www.beyondthewhiteboard.com, you will be prompted for a gym code. CFNYC members can enter the code NYC759 and it will accept you into our gym. This will register your account at no charge, and give you access to our daily programming so you can log your results (see below).
The only other thing you need to set up is your ability to see the programming for the specific class(es) you attend. You can do this by mousing over your avatar in the upper right and choosing “Your Tracks”. You can choose to see any combination of programming, whether you just want to see “All Levels” classes, or you want to track “Experienced” and “Endurance” as well. Once you select your tracks, they will show up automatically whether you use the web site or the app to track your results.
BTWB is not just limited to the workouts you do at CFNYC. If you travel and do a WOD at another box, or if you do a home WOD, you can easily enter the workout in BTWB by choosing “Log / Workout” and entering the data. This will allow you to track 100% of your fitness activity, not just what you do at the Box.
If you have any questions about signing up, or any of the BTWB functions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
