- Your Epic Quest (EQ) level, displayed in the badge icon on the right side on your character page with the letters EQ. This is created and maintained by you, creating your own quests and assigning XP values.
- Your Nerd Fitness (NF) level, displayed to the left of the experience bar on your character page. This is determined by how much XP you have earned from quests found on your Quests page.
We’re working hard at constantly making updates to your Nerd Fitness Character and Epic Quest. We’ve already got a ton of new features in the works (like being able to re-organize your quest lists, a user dashboard, and badges), and we will be releasing them as soon as they are ready.

On your My Character page, you’ll see a pencil icon in the upper righthand corner, by your character name. Click on that to get the “Edit My Character” pop up.Once there, you can edit the following items:
Name: Feel free to put in your real name or your character’s name. It’s up to you! You can update this at any time and it does not affect anything else (such as your name on the forums).
Slogan: A quick phrase that you go by – your motto or battle cry.
My Story: Tell us a bit about yourself! Who are you, where did you come from, and how did you get here? Or, if you’d rather only look in the future – tell us about what that looks like! This is your space to include whatever you’d like us to know! You can have fun with this, and make it your character’s story, or be honest and give a brief history of your own life.
Profile photos can be in .jpg, .gif, or .png format. They can be any size but look best if they are square (the display is a square), 115px by 115px.
There’s no way to delete a profile picture, but if you’d like to return it to a generic icon, you can download this and upload it to your profile.
Click on it to expand it, and then click the big green button that says MARK COMPLETED.
Ta da! You’ve officially earned 25 XP and are on your way to leveling up!
Now, if you ever want to uncomplete a quest, just click “MARK NOT COMPLETE”. If you watch your XP bar when you do this, you’ll see your XP goes up and down based on if it is completed or not.
A few notes on the Quests on your Quests Page:
For fitness quests, we recommend you not only create quests for your long term goals, but for milestones as well. For example, if you would like to squat 315lbs one day, and your squat is currently at 135lbs, you might create quests at 185lbs, 225lbs, 275lbs, and 315lbs. This will help you build momentum as you work towards completing your bigger quest!
