If you happen to reside in the camp that believes that the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games were too difficult, especially due to the pegboard event, or worse, Murph, I invite you to go with me on a journey back in time. The year is 1962, 9 months after John F. Kennedy presented his famous moon shot speech. It was in this year that JFK challenged the nation once again. This time, the challenge was to make America physically healthy. In his own words, he stated that he believed that a physically healthy citizen would also be a spiritually and mentally healthy citizen. JFK’s challenge to build a stronger America was known as the “Great National Effort”. It was modeled after the PE programming of La Sierra High School. Four thousand high schools across the nation rose to this challenge.Read More
This most certainly does not break down into a single answer, but we feel compelled to share some transparency with the community.
For those of you that use Kilomodo, chances are you may have questioned. How do they plan to make money? In all honesty, we do wish to make a profitable business, but that’s not what is front and center. We do have a plan for that. However, today is about making an awesome product that people love. What I can promise you now is, the experience you enjoy today will remain…dare I say it… free.
We will be introducing features in the future that will require a subscription to access, but the social experience and workout tracking is yours. Really, that’s our gift to the community. We will always continue to improve upon that too. The subscription model is what we will use to build more value beyond the meat and potatoes.
The single most important thing you can do to help us is use it, share it, and provide feedback; good or bad. You can do that by clicking here. Read More
We have introduced a lot of changes into the score sheet in this current release.
In addition to the already existing REP SCHEMA, WEIGHT, DISTANCE, CALORIES and REPS, we have added MOVEMENT scaling.
Scaling movement options from the score sheet – We now provide a drop down in the score sheet for movements that have common modifications. Scored a workout with a movement that you didn’t actually do? No problem, you can always edit your score to keep things accurate. Read More

Cheaters have no place in CrossFit.
A cheater is someone who makes a conscious decision to cut (and lie about) the amount of repetitions performed during a workout. The phrase, “if you cheat, you are only cheating yourself” is partly true, but not entirely.
With our latest release and complete branding overhaul we feel we are now set on the right track to fulfill our “Whiteboard in your Pocket” vision. For the next couple of months we will be working on our native APPs.
Why is this important? Because we want to make the experience awesome and as easy and intuitive for you, the Athlete. With that said we are still refining our current platform version and will be slowing down the release of new features in order to focus on mobile. Read More
We are now decorating feed items and workouts with special icons indicating if there were any PRs. The TROPHY icon signifies a WOD Personal Record, which is triggered for any known workouts (Hero, Girls, Games, Benchmark, Open or any other workout tagged as special).
The MEDAL icon will show up every time you get a Personal Record on a singular movement. It is possible that in a singular workout you get both icons.
With the upcoming release we have been preparing a lot of new features and a complete overhaul of our look.
We have added functionality that will make tracking WOD and MOVEMENT PRs a breeze. These PRs are calculated from the Skill/Strength work done or by using movements performed in WODs. These data points will live in the system and will auto-populate their respective fields once the work is prescribed again. In other words, no need to remember what you did for Back Squat 3 months ago, it will be readily available to you once the WOD is published.
We have also added some social features to the platform. This will make it much better to discover fellow athletes or see what athletes or boxes they follow.
More information will be available once we do release it, but please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. You can reach us @kilomodo on twitter.
