How do I add an exercise to my diary?

Adding an exercise to your diary is similar to adding a food. Just take the following steps:
On the Web​
  • Click on the "Exercise" tab, then click "Add Exercise" under the type of exercise you'd like to log. 
In our latest iOS and Android Apps
  • Tap the large blue "+" button, then tap "Exercise"

In our other Mobile Apps
  • Tap the “Add to Diary” button on your “Home” screen OR on the “Diary” page tap the "+" (or "Add") button

Choose either “Cardiovascular” or “Strength."
Type the name of an exercise in the search box and press the “Search” button -- (on software keyboards, you'll find it in place of the "Return" key). You'll be shown a list of exercises in our database that match your search.

Select the item you'd like to add to your diary, then enter the number of minutes for a cardio exercise, or the number of sets, reps and weight for a strength exercise. Finally, select "Add" or "
✓​" (apps) or "Add Exercise to Diary" (site).

That’s it. Your exercise should be logged in your diary.
