CrossFit Burke is proud to announce our new workout tracking software, Train Heroic! Train Heroic is a powerful workout tracking tool that will provide an easy way to log-in workouts and see your results in a better, more detailed way. It also shows a more detailed picture on where CrossFit Burke can make its programming better and more well-rounded. For example, it will show us if we program lots of air squats, but hardly any pistol squats or muscle-ups. It will help keep us, your coaches and programmers, accountable for the variety of training we have for you. You will be receiving an email asking you to sign-up with Train Heroic.
Train Heroic syncs with our current billing software, FrontDesk HQ. This means that you can log in to Train Heroic with your FrontDesk username and password. Instructions on how to do this are below. Train Heroic is also available in the Google Play store and Apple App store.
“What about Wodify?” you may ask. With the transition to Train Heroic, Wodify is now a redundant service. Instead of using two separate services that do not talk to each other (Wodify and FrontDesk HQ), we now have two great services (Train Heroic and FrontDesk HQ) which work together to provide a better experience to you as the athlete. Therefore, CrossFit Burke will phase out use of Wodify starting in February. You will not have any access to Wodify or any information stored in Wodify as of March 1, 2016. Don’t worry, though: you can follow the instructions below to transfer key information, like your one-rep maxes, from Wodify to Train Heroic.
I know that this may feel like a heavy lift, and I know there will be some growing pains when it starts off. And I also know that this software is better than Wodify. I have been reviewing and testing Train Heroic since August. Train Heroic already has more capabilities than Wodify does, and Train Heroic’s future capacities look even better!
I will be at every class the next couple of days to work through your questions and troubleshoot any issues you may have. I want to assist you in the transition in any way I can. If you are having issues, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or catch me in class. Another resource is Train Heroic’s FAQ site for Athletes.
Please follow these steps to successfully sync Train Heroic with your FrontDesk HQ account:
Step 1. Open E-mail that says “Join My Team on Train Heroic!”
Step 2. The email will say “Click here to join the team: [and then the link will appear in the email].”
Step 3. After clicking the link, you will be taken to the Train Heroic website. Select the athlete option.
Step 4. In the bottom right hand corner, there is a “sign up” button. Click on it. (“Athlete Comped $0.00” will be grayed out).
Step 5. “Login or Create Account” will appear in the top right hand corner of your screen. Select “Sign up with Front Desk HQ”.
Step 6. A pop up screen will appear asking you to sign in to Front Desk HQ. Enter your email and password. If you forgot, select “Forgot your password?” Follow those instructions and come back to this point.
Step 7. Once your e-mail and password are successfully entered, Front Desk HQ will have a pop-up that asks “Allow Access”. Click on it.
Step 8. The next screen will say “Click below to join this team!” The name of the team is CrossFit Burke with “Comped” underneath it. Click on “Join Team”.
Step 9. The next screen is your Athlete home screen. A pop-up will ask if you want to “Keep Looking” or “Get Started”. Click “Get Started”.
Step 10. The screen you are on now is your athlete home screen. You can start exploring your Train Heroic page and adding in data (like your current one-rep maxes) that you will want access to in the future. You can do this under “About Me” in the left hand corner. There is a “Working Maxes” page that list a bunch of lifts. Transfer what you have in Wodify to Train Heroic at your convenience (but before March 1, 2016).
