All about Guilds: Descriptions, How to Join, Updating Your Crest

Recommended Posts

Here at Nerd Fitness, we have 8 official guilds, based off of fitness specialities. These guilds are based off of the ones used in Steve's Book, Level Up Your Life




If you want, you can become a member of one, or multiple guilds. To officially join, stand up and officially declare it.


As an example, if you want to be an adventurer, stand up right now, and declare proudly "I am an Adventurer!" for everyone around you to hear.


That's it! You're officially an Adventurer!


If you want to join a guild as a part of our 5 week challenges, simply tag your thread with that guild, and you're officially in! 








If you'd like to add a guild crest under your avatar when you post (pictured above), it's a simple update to your profile! Just click on your name in the upper right hand corner, and then choose PROFILE. From there, in the upper right hand corner of your Cover Photo you'll see a button that says EDIT PROFILE. Click there! You'll then see a section called CLASS. This selection will determine what crest shows!

Note: While you can be a member of multiple guilds, you can only have one crest at a time. 





Note:  For EXAMPLE ACTIVITIES - these do not cover all activities someone of this guild would do, and you don't have to do all of them to be a member of that guild.


There is some overlap across activities. Just because you are a Warrior does not mean you can not do gymnastics (an Assassin activity), for example.






Generalized nerd fitness.  After finishing your first challenge in the Level 1 Guild, you may not be sure which guild to pick - if so, this is where you fall. Many choose to stay with the Rebels guild long term as it is a great place for people pursuing any healthier lifestyle. This outstanding guild is full of supportive people developing healthier habits, leveling up their fitness, and ironing out their nutrition.


* Example Activities: Any!





Adventurers are brave souls who fear nothing and are always curious about what's over the next hill or across the ocean.  They are often found working diligently with their allies to help ensure that every adventure leads down the correct path, exploring and learning for the sake of others.


* Fictional example: Indiana Jones, Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)


* Real-world example: Les Stroud (Survivorman); Cheryl Strayed who hiked 1100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail (Wild).


* Example Activities:  Hiking, Geo-caching, Travel, Exploration, Rock Climbing, Cave Diving, etc.





Every building can be climbed, every gap can be jumped, and every obstacle can be conquered. Assassins spend most of their time training with functional body-weight exercises, as that's usually the only thing they need to lift. Gymnasts and parkour enthusiasts would fit into this category.


* Fictional example: Ezio Auditore (Assassin's Creed 2), Oliver Queen (Arrow); Elektra (Marvel)


* Real-world example: Kacy Catanzaro of American Ninja Warrior fame; Damien Walters, professional stuntman, gymnastics coach, and free-running professional


*  Example Activities: Parkour, gymnastics, bodyweight strength, dance & aerials, etc.






Druids spend a majority of their time training in the arts of yoga, tai chi, and other movement-based disciplines. Each movement has a purpose, and that purpose is to further improve the dexterity, agility, and strength of the druid.


* Fictional example: Lady Galadriel & Gandalf the Grey (The Lord of the Rings)


* Real-world example: Josh Waitzkin, Tai Chi Push Hands US champion and chess prodigy; Kate Merolt of Nerd Fitness Yoga fame!


* Typical Activities: Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Dance, etc.






Monks can kick your ass with their fists and feet, and they can do it before you even know what's happened. Incredibly agile, lightning fast, and loaded with power, Monks specialize in martial arts to stay in shape and destroy the opposition.  


* Fictional example: Neo (The Matrix); Beatrix Kiddo (Kill Bill); Black Widow (Marvel) UFC Fighters Georges St. Pierre & Ronda Rousey


* Real-world example: UFC Fighters Georges St. Pierre & Ronda Rousey


* Typical Activities: MMA, BJJ, Karate






A jack-of-all-trades, Rangers are well-equipped for any situation. You're good at strength training and pretty good at covering distances when required, but neither is a specialty.


* Fictional example: Jon Snow (Game of Thrones), Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games), Aragorn (Lord of the Rings)


* Real-world example:  Mat Fraser, multi-times CrossFIt Games champion; Sara Sigmundsdottir, CrossFit competitor.


* Typical Activities: CrossFit, High Intensity Interval Training, general mixed training (running and lifting, for example)






Built for distance and efficiency rather than strength and power, you can outlast any animal on the planet. Your muscles are designed with endurance in mind, and you can cover great distances whenever necessary.


* Fictional example: Legolas of the Woodland Realm (Lord of the Rings), Tauriel (The Hobbit)


* Real-world example: Rita Jeptoo, Boston Marathon record holder; Jan Frodeno, 2008 Olympic gold medalist and 2015 Ironman champion


* Typical Activities: Running, Swimming, Biking






You love the idea of getting stronger and more powerful. Every day is an opportunity to move heavy things or test yourself against others in competition and prove your might.


* Fictional example: Thor of Asgard (The Avengers); Brienne of Tarth (Game of Thrones)


* Real-world example: Katherine Nye, 71kg World Weightlifting champion; Mattie Rogers, US Weightlifting Olympic team; 10x IFP World Champ Jen Thompson; Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays The Mountain on Game of Thrones.


“There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
