In this day and age, there are countless methods to keep track of our schedule. There are ways to make sure we’re holding up our end of the bargain when it comes to working out—and yet so often we don’t utilize the tools we’re offered. We’re here to not only convince you of the importance of keeping track of your workouts. We believe that you should actually keep a physical workout journal, and here’s why.

Holding Yourself Accountable

In just about every avenue of life, holding yourself accountable is a major lesson we all must learn at some point. It’s one thing for someone else to hold you accountable, but doing it for yourself is a whole other ballgame. You might think you can do it on your own—but when you write it down in a journal it becomes real.

The Written Word

While our thesis can be lent to notepads on your smartphone, we’d like to discourage that. We believe that actually having a physical notebook logging your workouts feels a lot different than taking care of it digitally. When you complete a workout task, there’s no greater feeling than crossing it off with an actual pen. Take our word for it—it’ll help you complete your goals!
