This new site is very buggy and has a horrible lay out. Way too many clicks to get to the items I need.

Anyway to get to the old site?

X2. Horrible, horrible, miserable experience trying to log anything, even on "supported" browsers. Please try again.

From a new user point of view (I answer most support email), the old site, though simple in the top navigation, became horribly complex once inside  - mainly the training logs.  It was link-mania.  So we took many of the components related to the training logs out of being linked INSIDE the log to the main navigation dropdown and other parts.  This was applied to other parts too, more or less.

Trust me, I answered a lot of 'this site is way too complex' emails.  'how do i get to my training plan', etc.  Our old training logs were not helping the future of the site.  

Doing something about these support emails is the fundamental design behind the new site.  Yes, it is very buggy but that is being fixed and I really thank you for the patience and apologize for the inconvenience.  It's a little rough as we have trained you on the site UI for 10 years and now it's changed.  It's easy for old time BT'ers that grew up on it, but it was difficult for new BT'ers.  That is not good for the the future of the site.  Updating the site, dramatically, will ensure that there is a site for us in the future.

Yep, far too many clicks. I understand the need to update, but I supported this site because I appreciated the simplicity.

Soon after I got married, I decided I needed to get motivated to work out and focus on getting back into shape. I could barely jog a quarter-mile without needing a walk break.
