How do I start a workout plan that is assigned to me?

To start a workout plan that your trainer has assigned, begin in the Dashboard view of your account

Navigate to the “My Stuff” tab of your Dashboard and click on “Workout Plans.” Scroll down until you reach the section labeled “My Assigned Workout Plans." Then locate the plan that has been assigned to you. 

Hover over the thumbnail of the assigned workout plan and click "Start Plan."

After you click "Start This Plan," a pop-up window containing details for the assigned plan will appear. In the window, schedule workout days, choose a workout to start with, and opt in for workout reminders via email. Once you've finished customizing the details of the assigned plan, click "Start Plan."

The assigned workout plan will then be added as "My Current Workout Plan" in the "Me" tab of your Dashboard. Click here to learn how to log a workout.
