Introducing: loopGroups

Today is a big day for  We are introducing our latest feature (absolutely free, just like everything else on the site).  I think this tool has the potential to be tremendously useful to many, many different types of groups (work out partners, friends, families, church groups, trainers, support groups and just about anything else!)

loopGroup FAQ
  1. What is a loopGroup?
     A loopGroup is a private group that can be created on loopchange.  Missions and comments made within a loopGroup are visible only to members of that loopGroup.  Be aware, all terms of service still apply and loopchange administrators can see all content submitted into a loopGroup.

  1. How do I form a loopGroup?
     On the right side of the ‘Mission List’ page, you will see a link that says ‘join/form a loopGroup’.  Click that link.  Find the section for forming a group and fill out the form.  You will need to name your group; assign a password and then briefly describe the purpose of your group.  All loopGroups must be approved by an administrator.  If your application is denied, you will receive a message explaining why as soon as is possible.

  1. How do I find members for my loopGroup?
      loopGroups are for you and your real-life friends/co-workers/work out partners/church members/family/team/neighborhood/etc.  Before forming a loopGroup, you should already have people in mind who you’d like to invite.  Upon forming your loopGroup, you will receive an email with the name and password associated with your loopGroup.  You can then forward that email to those folks who you’d like to share missions with.

  1. How do I join a loopGroup?
     If you’ve gotten an email invitation from a group leader, just follow the instructions there.  You will need to set up a loopchange account; validate the account and join the loopGroup using the name and password provided to you by your group leader. 

  1. Is there a limit to the number of members a loopGroup can have?
     At this time there is no limit. 

  1. Can I be a member of more than one loopGroup?
      At this time, there will be no limit placed on the number of loopGroups you can join.

  1. If I join a loopGroup, can I still post in the ‘public’ missions?
      Absolutely!  We believe that much of the benefit users get at loopchange is from encouraging others.  loopGroup members are encouraged to continue to support all users in the public domain.  A loopGroup member can also have both private and public missions going at the same time.  We want you to continue to be involved members in all aspects of the site, not only their loopGroups.
Have a question that wasn’t addressed here?  Send an email to and you’ll hear back as soon as possible.
