I love that you can personalize the whole thing and everybody at my gym always asks where I got it from. It’s convienent pages to track workouts; to learn various forms; tracking your best times and also having common workouts to refer to. I bought this more than 2 years ago and I am still using it due to being able to add additional pages. Just can’t say enough good things about it.
