What is trackrecord and why should I join?
Because you need a simple training journal

First and foremost, trackrecord is a simple service for tracking your day-to-day exercises. Record a minimum of training data (distance is sufficient) and make use of long-term evaluations. The ambitious can perform fancy evaluations and compare themselves with their peers. If you feel inclined, track your gear or your favourite running or biking routes. As 66% of us have a triathlon background, we currently focus on tracking swim, bike, run, and strength exercises.

Because it's free - no premium accounts

It's not about the money, it never was. We use trackrecord ourselves and we have no special ad-free account. We are annoyed by websites cluttered with ads (who isn't?). We love to program and we love open-source. You using trackrecord gives our efforts some extra edge. That doesn't mean we won't sell out if someone gives us a plethora of cash.

The team behind trackrecord
Andrew Moore
Andrew doesn't dig triathlon - he is a pure after work runner. His oddly-wired brain is good for problems that require creative solutions. He specializes in Ruby, Javascript and Java. Andrew holds a PhD in Bioinformatics and currently works as a software engineer for a large north American pharmaceutical company.
Florian Wessel
Florian is by far the most talented athlete (triathlete) on the team. He occasionally causes distress in the team due to his Apple obsession, but his versatility, doing programming, html+css, and graphics work, is highly valued. Flo is a scientist with a PhD in Molecular Biomedicine, i.e. generates antibodies
Lothar Wissler
Lothar is passionate about triathlon and web development. He is all about efficiency, likes to make schedules and lists, and takes pride in doing things 'the right way'. In TR, Lothar does Ruby, Javascript and model design. He holds a PhD in Bioinformatics and currently works at a German pharmaceutical software development company.

Frequently asked questions

What is your target audience?

We are looking for world domination. Nah - not really. Just out for those who tick like we do... those that love the occasional (and not so occasional) challenge, those that thrive on competition, and of course those that want to improve. Hell ya - improvement is where its at! We probably also appeal to those that like lists - lists of equipment, lists of exercises, lists of favorite routes, lists of competition, lists of friends etc... In summary, TrackRecord is a community platform for web-affine sports enthusiasts, from professional triathletes to after-work runners, riders and swimmers.

What can I track with TrackRecord?

Our focus clearly lies on saving your training exercises and competitions. However, we also offer tracking of your body weight and experiment with tracking the use and tear of your equipment over time (both of which are private and cannot be seen by other users, not even friends). We are also working on routes, i.e. your favorite running and cycling routes.

Why are there only 4 disciplines?

Boy... we contemplated that one. In the end, we decided to limit the number of disciplines to keep TrackRecord simple and easy to use. Furthermore, we are trying to catch those that love these disciplines as much as we love them (perhaps strength aside) - bird of a feather, so to speak. If you want to clock your times in all those other exciting disciplines, perhaps you should check out runtastic (where you, instead of points, can get the number of pizza's you just burned with your exercise - thats how great it is over there!). However, you can clock your other disciplines (Andrew even adds his badminton, after checking comparisons tables)... obviously, disciplines with a certain amount of similarity to the ones tracked in TrackRecord are advisable (for example, some track cross-country skiing as bike riding).

How are “points” calculated?

For every kilometer on a bike, you get one point; for every kilometer that you run, you get four points; for every kilometer that you swim, you get 16 points. Strength exercises are measured in hours, and every hour is worth 20 points. The first members of TrackRecord also agreed that one hour of indoor cycling (spinning) is equivalent to a 25km bike ride.

Does TrackRecord consider any other characteristics of an exercise?

In short: no. We only use some basic parameters (such as the distance) to assess an exercise. For example, a person who does a 10km interval training routine (with alternating stretches of fast and slow every 1km) gets the same points as somebody who goes out for a regular 10km run after work or a person doing a pure up-hill run. We also ignore other factors such as age or experience. As a result, an experienced runner who puts away some 10km in 45min gets the same points as the beginner (who has his engines revved at upper limit to clock that kind of time). Whats more, we also do not consider any of these factors in a competition. We do this to keep things simple. That said, we have thought about ways to weight exercises, and future versions of TR may see some changes to the point system (or not). If you exercise with someone who is fitter than you, we suggest that you take pride in the increased athletic challenge. However, for know you ain't getting more points.

What are groups good for, and how can I enter a group?

We added groups as a way of loosely following users (users of a group form a loose crowd). That said, the core unit in TrackRecord are tracked-users. These are the people that you share your exercise performance with, compete against, etc.

What information do I share with friends and group members?

A friend can see everything except your vitals (bodyweight etc), your wear and tear and your routes. Group members do not have any special privileges. If they are not friends with fellow group member, they cannot see their data. However, any approved group member can read and write Group Board messages.
