Log books?

I just found WOD books http://www.wodbook.com/ I know last year there was another choice talked about here. What are you using? Can you provide a link?

TIA

Bill

We use wodstack.com. It's done well, and always adding new things.

Thanks Brian and Roger. I am looking for a paper log book to hand out to clients.

Re: Log books?

Dave, I know there is at least a second paper log book out there. One of the considerations is cost. $14 per book is a bit high IMHO. What I do now is apply a sticker to the front of a $3 ofc max tablet. We include PR cards with the lifts listed and a second card with BW max reps listed. Works OK. Just getting to the point I want to farm out as many of the small tedious tasks as possible.

Re: Log books?

We were able to find someone locally that can print some we felt were better for us locally. Very similar to those.

Re: Log books?

We have a file box with clients names in alphabetical order that stays in the gym at all times. Clients can keep their journal in there, and write down their results after every WOD. We don't have a special journal, we just have the client get their own of any kind. Usually the composition booklets work best, or just a single subject notebook.

We also have a sheet in their file that has all the named WODs and Oly lifts (for max lift), and other staple exercises like 500m row, 1000m row, 400m run, 1/2mi run, etc. It's like a chart, so each time they do the WOD or lift, they write the date and result in the row. This way they have a quick way of seeing how they've improved over time.

It's convenient for them, and it gets others to keep track of their results better, as well. If they want to take the journal home, though, I would suggest they have a second journal, then, that they can take to and from the gym, and leave the other one in the file box at all times. Otherwise, you'll have clients who keep forgetting it, fall behind in their journal, and then not keeping track anymore.

Re: Log books?

I had one that I printed in house on my laser printer. It had an auto duplexer so would print both sides, 3 hole punch into a duotang, put a label on the cover with their name, done.
