Guide Review - BodyMinder Workout & Exercise Journal

One of the best motivators in reaching any fitness goal, whether it's weight loss, weight gain or running a 5K, is to keep an exercise journal. One of my favorites it the BodyMinder--a spiral-bound journal designed to help you track your workouts. The daily pages, enough for 3 months worth of workouts, allow you to record what time you worked out, who you exercised with and who taught your group class. You can track the type of cardio, duration and intensity, as well as whether you warmed up and stretched. There's a space for writing down your strength training exercises--reps, sets, weight and intensity. There's a section for comments on how the workout felt and a brief section to write down what you ate that day, allowing you to track calories, carbs, protein and fat. You can also track your water intake, supplements and whether you reached your goal for the day. The progress charts are where you really see how far you've come and you can also use the weekly schedules at the front of the book to plan out your week. Overall, the BodyMinder is easy to use, fits nicely in your gym bag and is sturdy enough to make it through hundreds of workouts. It's a good choice for anyone who wants a little extra motivation to exercise.
