Sport Journals - WODBOOK - Review and Giveaway

Posted Mar 21 2013 11:01pm
WHO/WHAT is Sports Journals ? - From their site - "Jeri McMaster founded Sport Journals (originally called WODbook) in January of 2009 in first of many trips to the annual CrossFit Affiliate Fest (now called CrossFit Tour). The first WODbook was a result of her need as an athlete and hyper-organized graphic designer to have an easy place to track all of her workouts, reps, and daily workouts. After two weeks of heavy snow in Portland (leaving her pretty much trapped inside designing this book), she came out with a great idea, a working demo, and a whole lot of heart and soul poured into making the book become THE book. She tested it at her home gym at the time, CrossFit Portland. Immediately she sent her ideas to the infamous Dave Castro and he sent her in the right direction, straight to the Affiliate Fest where she could meet and show her product to the one and only Coach, Greg Glassman."

Mine travels with me to my gym every day.  It has been my constant companion since I received it.  Many of the people at my gym also use a wodbook and they just leave it there.  I like to take mine home with me and make note of my home workouts and track my runs as well.  

There are over 13 different WODbooks and there are plans for even more. The books are produced by the most ecologically sound printing company in the Pacific Northwest.  They are made of recyclable materials and are also 100% recyclable. However, I doubt I will ever get rid of mine.  I will always want to be able to look back and see my progress.   Sports Journals has also sponsored the CrossFit Regionals, the games and also the affiliate fest for the last 4 years.  They are carried in crossfit gyms all over the world. 

 One of my favorite things about my Wodbook is that it has complete lists of travel wods.  It breaks them down by into categories for you.  It lists workouts you can do using only your body weight.  From there, it shows you lists of workouts you can do with minimal equipment and most of them can be completed anywhere.  This has come in so handy on days that I do not make it into the gym but still want to get a nice sweat session in at home.  It is also pretty handy to take with you while you are traveling.  Many of the workouts could easily be performed in your hotel room or wherever you are staying. 

I usually use the strength section as a place for reflection or random notes.  I'll write how my workout made me feel, compare notes from prior scores, take note of things I want to work on, etc.  ***Disclosure:  I was not financially compensated for this post.

Peace and Love!
