    The journal is very nice and complete; I still didn’t use it much because I have been injured but hope to be using it more soon.
    Maybe one tip, the journal now has the days of the week already, if it would be a blank space people could fill it in with their own date and day as some people don’t train or track every day… for the rest, very easy to use, and hope to get in there some nice achievements!!

    I’ve tried digital tools for tracking my training. Had to come back to the journal. These are great and more accessible.

    This is my fourth journal from journalmenu. I love customizing the cover and being able to pick&choose what I want on my internal pages. The PR section is so helpful!

    Erica and her staff exceeded my expectations with attention to detail and promptness. I love my journal and just looking at it is a motivator in itself.

    Creating personalized journals for friends was so much easier than I thought! Once I sent in my order, I had proofs within the day. Any changes that I wanted to make were quickly changed and they were printed. My journals arrived within 5 days and are beautiful. All the friends that received their journals absolutely love them and are very excited to fill in all their numbers! Thanks again for the wonderful experience. It’s time to make one for myself now!

    We ordered these for our beginner athletes but after we got them we realized they were perfect for everyone. We’ll be ordering a lot more soon.

    I love my journal!! It is so hard to find a journal that fits my personality and in the colors that I like (I especially liked being able to choose the graphic, and the color of the graphic, AND the spiral!) The journal content is as good as the Rogue journal, and is worlds better than others. And finally, I liked that I could choose the pages – I like 2 WOD’s per page, am not into tracking nutrition so I don’t need all that stuff, and I have the hero/standards/girls workouts at my fingertips. Just a great value all around and I will be ordering again!!

    I have a daughter who is a fitness freak at 11yrs old. We built a journal for her and she loves it! She uses it to track her Club Lacrosse workouts. Huge hit!

    I made a journal for myself and really found it useful (and nice to look at!). When my son got serious about bodybuilding, I had one made for him- he loves it! These are so nice and so customizable. They are so patient and don’t mind exchanging several emails until you get it dialed in just as you want it. Highly recommend.

    Wonderful customer service! I loved being able to see different versions of my cover with different colors and choosing the best one. Erica was great at making sure it arrived on time, and it was the perfect gift!

    I wanted a workout book with custom pages that I designed on a word document, with a special font. I had chatted and emailed with Evan and he did exactly what I wanted. I wanted some of his pre-fab pages but not others. He emailed me the draft, I edited it, and I love the final. He made tweaks to the cover and even used my special font on it. We get complements on it all the time at the gym. The size is great: just big enough to write neatly and fits in my bag no problem, it is also easy to cary around the gym.

    I really love this journal. I loved being able to customize it and to NOT have pages that didn’t work for me. The only thing it could possibly need is a clip-in bookmark, but it is easy enough to use a regular one. They were so easy to work with, too – I felt like they cared a lot about whether I liked my journal.

    It’s exactly how I pictured it. Thanks for helping me achieve that. I look forward to writing in my book!

    My box stopped supplying journals so I ordered my own, custom made just the way I want it. The order process is easy and the communication is great. It sits right on my desk, right in front of me, every day.

    My wife found journal menu and purchased a “build-a-book” to track her wods. After seeing the amazing quality of her journal, I had to order one for myself. I was really impressed with how much control you had in the customization process. Thank you very much for putting out such a quality product!

    The customer service by Erica while trying to get the perfect design for my cover was great! She was quick to reply to my emails to provide new proofs. Although, I probably would have played around with the design a little more if I could have done it myself on the website. It would be nice to be able to preview it as you make changes/ select new options for the cover.

    I LOVE the content of the journal. It’s personalized and contains everything I could need and more for my WOD tracking.

    The only CON with the journal is I wish the cover was made for heavy duty use. The cover seems flimsy, as if it could easily tear if kept in a gym bag or after a few weeks of use. Due to this I’m afraid to keep it in my gym bag with all my other gear. If the cover were laminated it would be worthy of 5 stars!

    LOVE THIS JOURNAL! It has everything you need. It’s especially helpful to new folks as it has descriptions of all of the movements that we do in class!

    LOVE THESE and the delivery was super quick.

    I’m currently following Crossfit Invictus Competitors program and my journal allows me to record everything on a daily bases. I really enjoy the percentage chart located in the back of my journal. It allows me to quickly look up my weightlifting percentages without using my phone for a calculator. It was pretty cool that I was able to design my own cover with pictures from my phone. In addition, customer service was outstanding! I received two-three templates of my journal before it was shipped. Journalmenu worked with me to design a WOD journal that’s compatible with my busy schedule and excessive Crossfit needs!

    This is my third journal but my first custom one. I love the way it looks and am overall happy with the added pages I chose. The only thing I would like to see is the Hero section with places for entries. My first journal was that way but the last two just list the Hero wods with no place to enter date/score. I’m sure I can ask for that next time and get it.

    I was so excited to hear about Journal Menu from two of my good blogger friends, Julianna and Allie! I decided on the build-a-book option because I wanted my JM to work for me and my goals with CrossFit. I loved working with Erica on what my notebook was going to look like, and it was so cool to be able to see my cover before the notebook was printed and sent to me! Not only was I so happy with the result, but my owner/coach thought it was so cool so I hope JM might come to our gym for all the members! If you have questions upon questions, and feel like the build-a-book is overwhelming…just talk with Erica! She’ll ease all your worries!
