Logging Exercise in Healthie

Many Ways to Log Exercise

In Healthie, you have a variety of ways to track your exercise. You can log a workout, track your time as a metric, use a Fitbit step counter or set a goal. Experiment with the different options to find what works best for you!

Healthie can also report steps from Fitbit, or workouts you add to the Fitbit or MyFitnessPal app.

Log a Workout

Keep track of your workouts by entering them in your journal. No tracking device needed!

  • Step 1: Click the “+” sign from the home screen / journal.
  • Step 2: Choose “Workout”. Click a set or custom workout.
  • Step 3: Add a description if you’d like, such as “Zumba, 60 minutes” or “Cycled 10 miles, South Platte Trail”.
  • Step 4: Set the “Intensity”, based on your feeling from 1 (low) to 10 (high).
  • Step 5: Adjust the date and time, or use the current time.
  • Step 6: Click “Post Entry”.

To log “Walking”, enter a Custom workout or choose “Running” with intensity level of 1.

Log a Metric

Do you want to track your total minutes of exercise and analyze the trends over time? Post your exercise as a Metric instead of a Workout.

  • Step 1: Click the “+” sign from the home screen / journal.
  • Step 2: Choose “Metric”.
  • Step 3: Click one of the set workouts or enter your own description by choosing “Other”.
  • Step 4: Add a description if you’d like, such as “Hiked the Bear Creek Trail, 3 miles, 60 minutes”

Use a Fitbit to Log Steps or Workouts

Track steps or workouts from Fitbit in Healthie:

  • Step 1: Sync Fitbit to Healthie.
  • Step 2: For steps: Wear your Fitbit device when walking to count steps.
  • Step 3: For workouts: Log an exercise in Fitbit.

At about 3 am daily, Healthie pulls data from Fitbit for the previous day. Entries appear in your Journal feed and in your Metrics sections in Healthie.

Refer to the Fitbit support page for more details on using the Fitbit app.

Use MyFitnessPal to Log Workouts

Sync MyFitnessPal with Healthie.

Summary data from MyFitnessPal will be synced via Fitbit, and will show up in your Journal feed in Healthie.

Set a Goal

Another way to track your exercise is to set a goal, then mark it as complete.

For example, if your goal is “Walk for 10 minutes daily”, you could create this goal. Then every day, you can check it off.

This is separate from whatever you track as a Metric or Workout.
