Online home-gym community?

Is there an online community resource for bodyweight / minimal home-gym excercise and target-setting / tracking?

I was thinking something like only with more variety (yes, I'm aware the site is subtly sponsored; that's not too bad but surely there are fit nerds who have built their own site and just want 5 bucks or something?).

I'm using a cheap book that covers a range of bodyweight / cardio-vascular moves and workouts that goes from zero equipment through to weights and gym ball... I was hoping to find something that covers similar just to track progress, share acheivements, help with motivation etc.

Simplefit is a no-fuss bodyweight program that's quite easy to stick with. I'm not great at pull-ups, but there are lots of substitution exercises they go through.

Spark People is an online community. There are different groups you can join. Some are geographical, some are type-of-sport, some are new parent and so forth. It's free, and it's full of lots of information. And of course you can track progress and goals (some as simple as drinking 8 cups/water a day).

How you use it is pretty much dependent on what you want to get out of it, which makes it very low key.

I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for when you say "community," but there are a bunch of different training forums at, including one for bodyweight training. For general strength training info, I highly recommend the forums at
