Times have changed. We’ve had to trade in our world class fitness facilities for make-shift garage gyms, our barbells and bumper plates for dumbbells, and the best hour of our day for virtual fist bumps and scrolling through app feeds of friends’ posts. The experience has been interesting, to say the least, but one thing still holds true no matter where we are or what we have: we can always work on, and improve, fitness.
The btwb Fitness Level feature first made its debut in 2013. It was designed to analyze an individual’s fitness. Let’s keep this simple. It’s composed of 8 different categories. You must perform designated workouts in each category to accumulate data for each. All 8 category levels are averaged together to determine an overall Fitness Level.
At-Home Fitness Level Workouts
Now for the relevant info. Just because you and your members are working out from home doesn’t mean they can’t still analyze their fitness. In fact, now is a great opportunity to improve specific Fitness Level categories like Bodyweight (metcons), Speed (short distance running and rowing), and Endurance (long distance running and rowing). All require little to no equipment. There are also many Light (metcons) category workouts that can still be performed at home with access to equipment like pull-up bars, dumbbells, kettlebells, jump ropes, and C2 Rowers.
Below are a list of of at-home Fitness Level workouts your members may still be able to perform, especially if your affiliate has loaned out equipment. Consider throwing them into your rotation so that members can monitor their progress with at least 4 of the 8 Fitness Level categories. Who knows how long the quarantine will last. In my experience, 4-12 weeks (worst case scenario) is plenty of time to make considerable progress in any of these categories.

Remote Workouts Shouldn’t Mean Easy Workouts
Challenge your members to test themselves the same way they would in the gym. Every aspect of life is different right now. Prioritizing fitness, and getting after a tough workout, doesn’t have to be one of them.
