Why Keeping Score Counts

Quick! What’s the definition of score? Did you have to pause for a second and think about it? Just so we’re all on the same page, a score is a mark used as a measuring point. Keeping score is creating a record to measure progress, and in our case that progress is your individual journey towards greater levels of fitness.

We’re not going to go into great detail explaining fitness here. Let’s just agree on the fact fitness can be observed and measured. Here we are, back at keeping a score. If fitness is what you’re going after, and you want to measure your progress, keeping score isn’t optional, it’s required.

Here are a few reasons to get you excited about keeping a score.

  1. Your score = higher quality coaching: Seeing your numbers, whether on the whiteboard or in Zen Planner, provides us coaches valuable information to better assist you in future workouts.
  2. Your classmates score = a bar to aim for: However you feel about other peoples scores, they are an opportunity for you to set realistic goals and aim for them. 
  3. Your score = proof of your success. When you compare your recent score to one from long ago, the proof of improvement is right there in front of you.
  4. Everyone’s score = better programming. Seeing everyone’s numbers at the end of the day provides the perfect gauge to see if the workout was a bit too much or a bit too little for the class as a whole.

There are many more reasons why keeping score is healthy, beneficial, and improves the experience for everyone. I encourage you take time to compare scores of past and present workouts to see just how far you’ve come.
