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.

The Timing:

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.

Find Chad’s document in our Public Notebook. Join the notebook to save Chad’s document (and more useful tips for using Evernote and our products) 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

Be sure to RSVP to the Facebook event and follow @evernotelife on Twitter so you don’t miss out on announcements around Challenge prizes and virtual events, as well as more fitness tips from Chad and the Evernote community. Here’s to a healthy and active 2013!

    I am a longtime user of Evernote and I love the service. I do have some caveats with Evernote for iOS. I feel it should be easier to enter tags to notes. Right now you have to push a button at the top and sometimes you forget to enter tags. It should be placed beneath the fold so you enter text and then the last step is to choose tags. I also feel that the app after the recent big update feels clunky. I believe this connects with the new navigation menu style. I would prefer a classic iOS sidebar that you swipe up from the left. One last thing ahort to the premium pricing. I feel it should be cut in half. It’s way to expensive. The big premium icon in the app also feels tacky. Users should be remembered of a premum option and not interrupted when they are using the service.

    Is there a way to RSVP without Facebook? I do not have a Facebook account.

    I’m confused as to how progress is monitored. We create the notebook in our Evernote account, then post to when we do some form of exercise. But how does that information get shared via Facebook or to Evernote? Is there something I’m missing?

      Michael, you can share photos from your Evernote account (on your desktop or from your mobile device) by copying a share URL to your clipboard. From there, you can post this public link to your note anywhere (including Facebook). You can also share directly to Twitter (be sure to use the hashtag #evernotelife and tweet @evernotelife @anthrophysique. Hope that helps!

    If you do not have a Facebook account, you can still participate in the Challenge without officially RSVP’ing.

    I second Michael Gibb…I document my workouts on Evernote but how do I share that…or do i just share seperately via facebook
