    Not all people enjoy being evaluated or assessed. Some love it as they see it as a means to learn and improve. Others hate it because it's hard to see those numbers.

    Regardless of which you prefer, remember, what gets measured, gets managed!

    I highly suggested taking progress photos, as well as regular weigh-ins. This is something you can do easily in the App, and will allow you to visually see the difference (and compare) that will occur in the coming weeks, months, and years as you stick to your training programs consistently! 👊
