Fitocracy: Here are the points you need to level up

Fitocracy is a great community for spurring each other onto great fitness things. Here’s what you need to level up …

Fitocracy: Because Internet Points

Fitocracy gamifies fitness and exercise. Do exercises, get internet points.

It’s amazing what people will do for (fake) internet points.

I’m at Level 12 in Fitocracy, and as of today need 1269 more points to level up to Level 13.

It gets harder to level up the higher you go. Getting from Level 5 to Level 10 isn’t nearly as hard as getting from Level 25 to Level 30 — even though you’re only advancing five levels in each case. (And getting from Level 60 to Level 65 is ridiculous.)

Breakdown of Fitocracy Levels

Since I’m a math geek I analyzed people’s scores on the site to determine exactly how many points you’ll need to get to the next level.

You can use these point values to set realistic goals. Let’s say you just cracked Level 10, and do workouts that usually get you 300 points. You’ll need 10500 more points to get up to Fitocracy Level 14, which is 35 workouts at the same intensity (10500/300 = 35). So you should get to Level 14 if you work out five times a week for seven weeks.

See how that works?

Anyway, here are the levels. Enjoy! (And … if you haven’t signed up for Fitocracy, then you should … it’s free!)

I’ve become a Fitocrat

A friend of mine posts his workouts on Facebook through a service called Fitocracy.

Fitocracy gamifies the whole exercise process. I can get achievements, keep track of personal records, and level up.

Pretty cool!  I’m actually motivated by such silly things.

I’ve already logged over 2 miles on the treadmill since yesterday, and am starting to do push-ups again.
