The Father Fitness Exercise Calendar

Post Type

I had created a free exercise calendar back in 2012 for 4Ever Fitness and it really helped with my motivation. I kept it up to date for a good couple of years but I haven’t done one in a while. I thought it was about time I brought it back!


I know there are several apps available since I first created one of these. Call me old fashioned, I just don’t think you can go wrong with a piece of paper and a pen.


The Father Fitness exercise calendar is free to download and print. I found in the past that it helped me plan my week in the gym and it gave me a good sense of satisfaction when I wrote ‘Gym’ on some days. It also acted as a visual reminder if I skipped more than two days in a row. I’d walk past the fridge door where it was hanging and if the last few days were blank, I’d think “Come on Paul, get your act together!” I found this really good motivation for me.


I’ve gone really easy on the design and the colours so it doesn’t use too much of your toner!




You can use the exercise calendar however you’d like. I’m simply using it to record how many days I’ve been in the gym and it helps me plan my week with rest days etc. You may want to keep track of your body weight, the weight you lifted in the gym or maybe the distance you’ve just ran. Remember if you are recording your own body weight, you should do this on the same day, at the same time, every week.


I hope this helps you as much as it helps me.
