Is anybody logged on? I'm in under my same user name, and have some invites if anyone wants one. I mainly do it cause my gf is. I don't workout hardly enough. Although I just got 20 more points for doing 15 pullups than my girlfriend got for a 8 minute mile.
Can you do 15 pullups at one time? Are you really 57? If both are so you are god
20ish actually, when I keep it up daily. My over-the-door frame pull up bar pull off the trim after a month or so of use, so I'm trying not to use it too much until I figure out a way to strengthen it or replace it.

She's not doing 15 pull ups though, is she

Ha, I'm a tech only by job description, I'm technically "only" a CNA. Although I do a lot of extra ---- in the ICU, post mortem is the most fun, I get to do pretty much everything. D/C IVs, central lines, extubate, etc. I still get paid a piddly amount though. With the amount of overtime that's available, I still bring home a decent amount, plus my night shift differential.
And anyone wanting a fitocracy invite needs to PM their email address.
You type what you've done, for example, I typed "pull up" in that picture, and you can see all the different varieties.
Then you say how many you've done:
Whether or not they're assisted or weighted, etc. It then calculates how many points for that. You get achievements and quests, much like achievements in xbox live games. These yield you extra points, and can help motivate you to do extra things. For example, I was going to do a dozen pull ups the other day to see how many points I got for them, just for fun. But then I saw an achievement for doing 15, so I did 3 extra. Those little extra reps or distances add up.
Here's a list of the quests, there's about 50 of them, related to different activities and different levels of difficulty. Some are fun, funny, and/or dumb.
They're all completed automatically and it's always a little exciting to plug in your workout and find out what you've accomplished.
Lastly you can comment and give props just like Facebook or a forum.
I'm by no means hard core about it, I don't work out enough, and I've only been doing Fitocracy for a few weeks, but there ya go, a fairly detailed explanation of Fitocracy.
Blaen, Feaflora, Pusha, Gearhead, and TorqueZombie all have invites now, it says I still have 10 invites, but that might be a bit of a bug.
Oh yeah, it's in beta testing btw. But you're not downloading any software, so I figure it's safe. And XKCD mentioned it:
