How to Use Categories on Playbook

We get it — creating 10 workouts can seem overwhelming. Where do you begin? How do you decide what to start with? Often the best way to start is with a certain theme, skill-level, or muscle group in mind. This is where Playbook categories come in.

What’s a category?

A category allows you to bucket one-off workouts into easy-to-navigate descriptions.

But that sounds like a feed workout? Nope! A feed workout is a one-off workout that does not have a category assigned to it. A category workout is tagged and bucketed under that tag.

Categories on Playbook

The “latest” workout on the right is your feed. The other workout bubbles on the left are your categories. These appear at the very top of your profile, making it easy for users to find it (and love it)!

How do I make a category?

Before you publish any workouts under a category, you need to create a category! To do this, go to the “new” circle at the top of your channel page.

Playbook category 2

To create a category (instead of program) choose the “collections” option.

Playbook category 5

Fill out the entirety of this page — don’t worry, it’s not a program so you don’t have to fill out the optional program pieces.

After you’ve added this category, you can add workouts to it! Republish a workout that is currently on your feed. When you do this, you’ll have the option to add a category.

Why should I use categories?

You should use categories for workouts that focus on the same thing — like a certain muscle group or similar themes. This way, if one of your subscribers wants to find all your back day content, they can. A category is a nuanced way to curate content that will make working out easy for your fans.

Examples: Abs, chest, back, cardio, HIIT, etc.

Using the category tool will keep both you and your subscribers organized. Organization means more time for more workouts (and more subscribers). It’s a win-win in our book.
