fitbook is the personalized, flexible, and functional line of fitness and nutrition journals that helps users achieve weight loss and fitness goals. Using fitbook, you will establish a game plan by setting 12-week goals and then breaking them down into smaller, weekly goals. Each week you’ll plan not only workouts, but also rewards to help motivate you to make the time to work toward goals. Workouts and food intake are recorded daily to track progress, and at the end of each week you'll reflect on goals, log accomplishments, and get rewarded. fitbook is structured enough to help users reach individual goals but flexible enough to be used with any exercise program (p90x, Crossfit, Personal Training) or nutrition plan (Weight Watchers, Paleo, Zone, Biggest Loser, DASH). fitbook comes in a single, 12-week journal or a 4-pack of journals to help you stay on track for 12 months. At 5.5 inches square, fitbook is small in size but large in utility. It has an elastic strap to mark your place, a handy slot in the back, and a pint-size pen. fitbook features a durable coil binding and sweat-proof covers so it is durable enough to be thrown into, and toted around in, your gym bag.

Top Customer Reviews
(1) Tracking reps of strength training exercises. I'm adding some exercises from a book to the end of my Focus T25 workouts. I learned from P90X and P90X3 how valuable tracking exercises can be (sets, reps, weights, etc.). So I am using the strength training pages for that. It's easy to flip back and see what I did, so I can try to increase the difficulty level at each workout.
(2) Tracking blood pressure measurements. There isn't a specific spot for this so I am using the "notes" section on the exercise page. But you could track whatever you wanted here -- blood sugar, pulse, blood oxygen levels, etc.
(3) Tracking how much water I drink. I'm counting other beverages (as long as they're not soda, which I have managed to avoid for two weeks), but I like this part because I've actually figured out that I'm probably drinking enough fluids in a day. I had previously assumed that I wasn't. But the checkboxes don't lie!
(4) Tracking sleep. I write down the numbers from my Fitbit One in the sleep area each morning. I've learned that I'm getting less sleep than I thought I was. That's the great thing about the Fitbook, though -- you might have an impression that you're doing something right, and when you start keeping track, you find out you actually need to work on that area. I knew I wasn't getting enough sleep, but I didn't know how bad the problem was until I started checking every morning. So now I have something to work on.
(5) Tracking servings. I'm not disciplined enough to count calories. I can't imagine going to My Fitness Pal and typing in everything I eat in a day. (Especially since I do most of my cooking from scratch...) But I can mark the letter "x" in a little box. And what I learned is that I'm not eating enough fruits and vegetables and that I'm probably getting more protein than I need.
(6) Tracking weight and measurements. I like how you only weigh in (officially) once a week. That's enough time to see a change without getting bogged down in daily fluctuations. I also like that you don't take measurements too often. That way, you can really see results.
(7) Motivation. I paid twenty bucks for this thing. I am going to use it! I don't want to skip days because that will mess up the whole book. This may not work for everyone, but it works for me.
(8) The smiley faces next to the food journal. I am being completely honest here. If I eat an appropriate amount and feel good afterwards, I circle the happy face. If I eat too much or feel poorly afterwards, I circle the sad face. Usually the non-emotional and sad faces get notes. I'm hoping to compile this into some sort of data set to help me figure out why I overeat, what my triggers are, when I feel terrible after I eat, etc. (I don't circle the sad face very often, but it does happen.) Then I can make changes!
I love the planning and goals. I am finding myself more likely to stick to a meal I write down, if I write it down, than if I have a general idea in my head. Or if I don't eat exactly what I wrote, I try to eat something sort of equivalent. So I don't feel like roasting vegetables one night? I'll saute some spinach instead. I'm still getting a couple of servings of vegetables. I love the little places at the end of each week to write down your thoughts, remind yourself of your goal, etc.
I also like the spiral. It's secure without wire hanging out and provides a great place to store the pen (which works just fine for me). It also allows me to lay the book open/flat for when I am recording strength-training reps and sets. I think the paper is nice and thick (so, easy to write on and unlikely to rip). I like the plastic over the cover; this should prevent damage from leaky water bottles, sweat, spills, etc. I use the elastic to mark the page I'm on, on any given day -- that way I can open right to the location where I need to be.
This might not work for you if:
(1) You do some kind of cardio that needs to be tracked. On the one hand, you could just use the strength table to record interval lengths or something similar. But the cardio tracking is particularly conducive to easy-to-write-down activities: a Focus T25 DVD, perhaps a spinning class, etc. If your cardio routine is more complicated, this might not work.
(2) You have a philosophical problem with the USDA dietary guidelines. This might mean you're on a Paleo diet and aren't eating grains, or it might mean a lot of other things. The serving counter won't work as well for you if your diet eliminates one food group (however, the Fitbook is fine for vegetarians as beans and such count as protein). It is a little bit odd that the food guidelines take up a large portion of the page on every page (in full color). I'm sure there's a different sort of information that might be more useful that could be put there (or it could be a field to write down another type of data).
(3) You're not committed to writing things down. I know what a pain counting calories can be. That's why I don't do it. The Fitbook still requires writing stuff down, but it's less intense than calorie counting. Just a minute or two, here and there, is all it takes. If I've been busy, sometimes I just fill it in at the end of the day (although that's not ideal, it's better than writing nothing).
(4) You're not willing to be honest with yourself. I think I'm going to say I don't get my "reward" for this week. I haven't achieved everything I set out to achieve (stayed up too late, on too many nights). It was a bit of a struggle but I finally decided it defeated the whole purpose of what I was trying to do if I rewarded myself when I didn't meet my goals. I'm choosing to think of it as a growing pain and I'm giving myself that chance to do better next week.
(5) You'd rather just get some notebook paper and track stuff. Personally, I always abandon notebook paper (or Google Docs, or whatever) after a week or two. There's something about having spent money on the Fitbook that makes me more likely to use it. But you totally could just make your own tracking sheets, if you were motivated enough. This is more of a matter of personal preference, though. Because you are paying for a lot of blank space that you have to write in. (For what it's worth, I also like that the Fitbook made me track things I wouldn't normally have paid attention to. You can't improve in an area if you don't realize there's a problem in the first place.)
In the end, this was a perfect thing for me. I'm certainly going to get another one when I've finished my 12 weeks.
