Introducing Freeletics Skill Progressions


Gone are the days of skipping a training session because you’ve found an exercise too advanced, complicated or generally above your fitness level. The hassle of spending countless hours searching for ways to improve or learn exercises can be demotivating. With Skill Progressions from the Coach, you can develop the skills you want as you progress through your Training Journey and towards your fitness goals, all within the Freeletics App.

Actively choosing one or more Skill Progressions you are interested in tells your Coach to focus on supporting your development by creating a clear progression path which you can access from within your personalized training plan.

There are currently 14 Skill Progressions offered by the Coach, as follows:

  1. Strict Pullup
  2. Strict Muscleup
  3. Hanging Leg Raise
  4. Full Hanging Knee Wipers
  5. Pistol Squats
  6. Pushups
  7. One-Arm Pushup
  8. Strict Handstand Pushups
  9. Burpee Box Jumps
  10. Handstand Walk
  11. Double Unders with Jump Rope
  12. Knee Jumps
  13. Standups
  14. Dragonflags

How to enable Skill Progressions

First, check to ensure that you are on a Training Journey which supports Skill Progressions. After this, the feature can be accessed as follows:

  1. Navigate to the Coach settings tab and select the Skill Progressions section.
  2. Once on the Skill Progressions tab, select as many Skills as you like. Selected skills will show up at the top of the list.
  3. Selected Skill Progressions will be assigned by the Coach within your personalised training plan.

To view active Skill Paths, navigate to the achievements tab on the top right of the Coach tab (same as badges), click in and tap to switch from the achievements tab to the progress tab.

You can activate or deactivate selected Skill Progressions at any time by updating your Coach settings. Keep in mind that if you do not activate any skill progressions, the Coach will assign and progress you towards all available skills.

Please note: Some Training Journeys do not support Skill Progression at this time! The link below won’t work for you if your current Training Journey is not currently supported.

Activate Skill Progressions

If you’d like to try Skill Progressions, you’ll need to first change your Training Journey or finish the one you’re on. Then you can start a whole new Journey and activate Skill Progressions at that time.

A few common questions about Skill Progressions

My Skill Progressions are Partially or Fully Blocked

Your Skill Progression may be fully or partially blocked for a myriad of reasons: Here’s what you can do to free up your path:

  1. Check if your weight is correct, up to date and using the correct unit of measurement in the app? Certain Skill Progression will be blocked for certain weights and heights for safety reasons.
  2. Check if your equipment settings are up to date? For example; only activating the Pull-up bar is not enough for certain Skill Progressions, you also need to enable all the different space settings for your bar in your Coach settings.
  3. Check if you exclude some exercises which are fundamental to advancing towards a skill.

When is a skill considered mastered?

A skill is only considered as mastered when you assign yourself a Star by sliding to the maximum on the Coach feedback scale. This enables the Coach to include more of the advanced exercises in your training plan, so make sure you give appropriate feedback.
