Use the fitness journal templates and printables and the fitness journal ideas and resources in this post to create a DIY fitness journal that is customized to your needs!
Health and fitness isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, so why should your fitness journal be? Regardless of your health and fitness goals—losing weight, toning, adding muscle—you’ll find fitness journal printables and resources to support you right there. So keep reading!
Tip: To keep it simple, I’ve created a 23-page fitness journal bundle, which you can get in the shop. Once you download your bundle, you can customize it by removing pages, duplicating pages so you have printables for multiple weeks, and by adding other printables.
DIY Fitness Journal Template Covers
Keep in mind that the best fitness journal is the one that you will actually consistently use! In other words, your journal, whether it’s a fitness tracker bullet journal or one built from the printables and resources in this post, needs to work for you. You may decide to create a stand alone health and fitness tracker journal, in which case you’ll want to “pretty it up” with one of the four printable covers shown here, or you may decide to incorporate it into your daily planner, such as the 2022 Daily Planner bundle or the Student Planner bundle.
Tip: Even if you do decide to build your health and fitness tracking into the planner you use for the rest of your to-dos, you may want to use one of the four fitness journal covers as a sort of divider. For example, you might keep non-daily or non-weekly templates and resources, such as SMART fitness goals examples and a printable template and tips on creating a walking for weight loss plan for women at the back of your daily or weekly planner, and you may want to separate them from your daily or weekly to-dos with one of the fitness bullet journal covers, just to keep things organized.

Food and Fitness Journal: Fitness and Nutrition Trackers
Even if your main (or only) fitness goal is to lose weight, you’ll probably want to track more than just pounds lost. Keeping track of how you’re shedding those pounds is also important; this may include your workout routine, what you’re eating and drinking, or both.
And on the flip side of tracking is planning. Planning your fitness and nutrition in advance can help you stick to those healthy habits. For fitness and nutrition planning and tracking, the health and fitness journal includes two printables:
Tip: While the one fitness journal printable is for a fitness and nutrition “plan,” you could easily use it as a weekly tracker too. So, for each week, print two copies. Use one copy for your plan and the other to track what you actually do. At the end of the week compare the two fitness journal templates and make adjustments as needed!

Add these full page printables to your health and fitness journal:
