What are the 5 Important Reasons to Document Your Fitness Journey? Think back to those mid-workout blues where you really struggled to summon the motivation to finish or the days you skipped the gym altogether. Everyone experiences those training plateaus every now and then. Documenting your fitness journey will benefit you when you are experiencing those bad mindset days. Looking back at your planning will help prod you back into line with your training and get you going again.


1. Planning

Possibly the most important factor in tracking your fitness progress. A large number of people will abandon their exercise programme due to a lack of clear fitness planning. Setting a firm plan before starting and not just winging it will keep you on track and accountable for hitting those goals within your fitness journey.

Physical development is a gradual process so keeping track of your progress will help you to understand if you’re successfully advancing towards your goals.

3. Accountability when documenting your fitness journey

After you have made your fitness plan and set your goals, all that’s left to do is to begin. Setting a plan, documenting your fitness journey and sticking to it can be difficult and it’s important that you keep yourself accountable, to stay on track. Creating food journals and workout plans are active steps to keeping yourself accountable.

4. Motivation to document your fitness journey

It’s difficult to be self-motivated to start new things and see them through to the end. For many people starting their fitness journey, this can be their only way. It’s important to have fun with your workout, look at exercises you enjoy that will motivate you to get going and keep going.

Reward yourself, after each session takes some time to savour the positive feeling that exercise provides. This type of internal reward can help you make a long-term commitment to regular exercise.
