Ever get frustrated that you can’t quite find the right tool for the job? Even seemingly easy jobs like tracking your workout data? Sure, there are apps for that… but apps can crash. What if there was a custom journal to record all your fitness related information in one handy place? Well… There is!
Well, perhaps at least the latter loss could have been prevented…? Enter Journal Menu: Workout Journals for Athletes!
Journal Menu brings fitness enthusiasts custom journals for logging all our workout data. Would any off-the-shelf spiral-bound collection of paper work for recording WODs? Well… yes. But why would you want that when you can have a journal that was made just for you??
First, who/what is Journal Menu? The team at JM originally were looking for the right journal to fit the needs of a friend… and they couldn’t find one. So what did they do? They made one! And poof, Journal Menu was born.
So what makes Journal Menu so special? Well, they are made by athletes for athletes, so they understand our needs for a functional workout tracker. Just check out the usefulness of a typical journal page.
There’s a place for your lift info, metcon tracking, goal work and mobility… everything you would want to track for a workout! Cool huh? There’s even a motivational quote at the top of each page! That would make for an awesome journal right there, but it’s the extras that put Journal Menu over the top. Check out the additional features included:
- Goal section
- Mobilization guide
- Hero WOD listing
- Benchmark WOD listing
- Tracking for specific lifts
- Super useful weight percentage chart
And custom means just that, custom! I picked out the colors and quote for the front of my journal. You recognize that quote, right?
Super useful. And for all my non-CrossFitting friends out there, fear not – there are other themes for a custom journal! Journal Menu offers running journals, yoga, triathlon, even day planners – all with fitness in mind.
Excited? You should be. Want to be even more excited? I’m giving away one free custom JM journal to one of you lucky readers!
I can’t imagine why anyone would not want a journal for themselves, but if you are unsure of reasons why working tracking is important, let me share a few reasons:
- Progress – to see how far you’ve come.
- Motivation – to keep going when progression gets tough.
- Patterns – to discover if something, such as nutrition or sleep, is affecting your workouts positively or negatively.
- Memories – to savor this journey that we are on.
Ok, you’re for sure ready to try out your own Journal Menu now. Go visit them, check out everything they have to offer, and pick out your own custom journal.
Each journal can be outfitted with whatever YOU need for YOUR fitness journey. (It’s probably no coincidence that journey and journal are practically the same word, right?) You pick your pages. You pick the units (lbs/kgs). You pick your design on the waterproof cover. Starting at $15, it’s for sure a worthwhile investment!
