Considering buying Nerd Fitness Academy - your thoughts please

I googled around and got a sense of reviews from non-Rebellion members, but I want a sense of what Nerds think about the program before I buy. I've also read the old threads of this nature, and they're not tremendously detailed and several came out when Nerd Fitness Academy was brand new. Now that it has had a chance to grow up a little and work out the bugs, what do folks think?

Nerd Fitness Academy. Will edit for clarity! Neither of those other NFAs are really that appealing to me, as I suspect the National Futures Association is probably more investment related than speculative fiction related.

I'm pretty sure Steve will not sell you his academy ;)

 

As for getting a membership: I did take a look and I like it. Actually I don't use it because I prefer a different approach on my goal settin.

 

It is a great way to get started with fitness or to follow a path in a challenge/XP way.

 

What do you want to achieve? 

How do you want to?

Do you like finishing small tasks and get rewarded with XP and leveling up?

Listen. I'm a VERY important software tycoon, and I have LOTS of money and power. I'll make Steve an offer he can't refuse!

Meanwhile, back in reality, I've enjoyed the forums for a number of years now, but I have a hard time sustaining goals and momentum. I have a pretty scattershot approach to fitness, and I tend to program-hop. I'd like to find something that contains enough of a trajectory that I will see some results from doing what I'm told with enough variation that I'll stay interested.

 

Really, I've budgeted for it, and I'm just pausing before taking the plunge. I do think I'd respond well to checking off boxes and gaining points for small tasks. I love a good checklist IRL.

I just signed up today so i don't have anything to say about long term usefulness. However so far i'm pretty excited.

In the past i've tried several different methodes to get in shape but always quit after a very short time. This looks promissing though. I like the quests, they start nice and small and get harder the further along you go. Also, they really encourage you to start super small, i tend to get really enthousiastic and then quit because it's too much. This way i'm hoping i'll stick to it.

I like that you can choose a class, and the quests are divided into classes.

You start of with the basics on mindset, nutrition and fitness so you get a good view of where you are now.

If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.

I think Nerd Fitness Academy is an actual fitness camp, you pay to go there but you cant buy the place. I don't know all what it is about...etc but I believe that is the basics.
