Great idea, poor execution
I love the idea of fitocracy: a community of fitness enthusiasts of varying levels who support and encourage one another. That facet of Fitocracy is wonderful. The app, however, is underwhelming. As a means of tracking workouts, I find it too restricting. Fitocracy wants you track in a very specific way, and there’s little flexibility or latitude for users who aren’t interested in (for instance) creating specific routines. When I go to the gym, it’s to work specific muscle groups, but I don’t necessarily perform the same actions or use the same equipment each time — I’m often at the mercy of machine availability or my own whim. Nor would I want to spend the time creating a bunch of routines and variants. I’d rather have something that automatically builds routines on the fly, while keeping my most recent or most frequently used exercises close to the surface. As it is, having to search for exercises at each stop I make in the gym, then try to remember which one I used last time (sometimes the same one can be listed multiple times with differing names)… it’s enough of a pain that I’ve completely stopped using the app, despite how motivating and wonderful I found the community portion. I’ll be looking for a different app for tracking progress, unfortunately.

Unusable / Done with Fitocracy
This app is completely useless and not worth your time. Been broken for weeks, and no sign in sight. Was a long-time user and booster of Fitocracy, but not anymore for me. Off to find a new service/app.

Update screwed everything up
I used to love this app but the updates have really screwed it up. I can't add exercises, there's nothing in the lists... It's completely useless now. I deleted it after much frustration.

Great App
Reinstalling the app fixed the crashing issue. Awesome way to keep track of workouts!

Cannot see any of my workout history
iPhone 5s, iOS 7.02. Do u even test before shipping? It has been a month since it is broken, but no fixes. I believe this app failed completely…

No Exercises
Glad I pay for a service I can't use.
