There are a fair few great apps for phones these days, that allows you to keep a training log and most of them are totally free. MyFitnessPal, Final Surge and Strava are all free to use and download and will help you remember your progress from week to week.
Sometimes you may just want a simple solution, like (shock-horror!…) Paper. Well, you could use a notebook. It’s a great way to keep you off your phone whilst in the gym and focus on your workout, and you can always update your online or phone app training log a bit later when you’re resting. Or just use a template training log such as the one we have for you.
You can download a training log here which is great for keeping track of your progress:
Make a copy of this cloud-based spreadsheet or download it
We’ve a stack of these ready printed for you at The Hangar, so just ask at reception if you need a copy, or if you need pens to fill them in.
Why an online log is brilliant:
The cloud-based option is great, as unlike an app, it only has the columns you absolutely need which helps save you time and waffle on filling in unnecessary information. And of course, no adverts.
