To jump start the New Year, we’ve teamed up with Fitness Ambassador Chad Williams to host a creative and fun Fitness Challenge. This January, we want to help you use Evernote to innovate your fitness routine and see how you can be active and healthy in the context of your day-to-day routines.
We’re kicking off the Challenge on Monday, January 7th. The length of the Challenge is 30 days (it wraps on Tuesday, February 5th).
To get started, RSVP to the Facebook event.
The Challenge: Create your own Evernote Workout Journal
Get your workout on in as many creative ways as possible and use Evernote to snap as many photos as you can, logging your day-to-day progress. Here are some ideas for photos you can capture using Evernote on your mobile device:
- Show us how you’re working out at home: lifting cans, doing push-ups with kids on your back, walking the stairs with your dog, etc.
- Show us your favorite outdoor workout spaces such as the park, trail, hill, or monkey bars you use.
- Show us your favorite gym equipment.
After snapping a picture, you can add some text to the same note stating how many reps you did, how long you did the exercise for, etc. Logging workouts is an important part of being able to compare results and visualize your progress.
To help you track your progress, save Chad’s document, “Creating an Evernote Workout Journal,” to your Evernote account.
Tracking what you do and your results will help keep you motivated throughout the Challenge and the New Year.
Be sure to share photos on our Facebook page and Twitter using the hashtag #evernotelife and @evernotelife @anthrophysique.
Get more out of the Challenge with Evernote and iHealth
We encourage those of you who have an iHealth device to share screenshots of your results throughout the month. If you’re not already familiar with it, be sure to read up about our cool integration, which lets you easily keep track of your blood pressure or body composition over time, right in Evernote.
Stay tuned for virtual chats, prizes and more
