"...athletes who journal become more engaged, self-aware and mentally sharp,
less stressed and better able to cope both on the mat and off." - Dr. Richard Kent, Author at writingathletes.com

As athletes, our identity is tied to our sport and training, competing, and managing life with serious goals is challenging.

From day to day life, dreams, motivations, and a sense of progress is easy to lose.

At the end of the day, we only have ourselves to keep us accountable to our goals and aspirations, and we need a way to process our inner voice at every step of the way.

The Athlete’s Journal is your tool for processing the emotions and thoughts that come with dedicating yourself to be your best in a sport and life.

It’s a place to plan, reflect, and analyze your days, competitions, workouts, wins, shortcomings, work, school, and anything else you’re going through.

By writing, you can make sense of all the emotions in your mind, plan ahead for the future, and look back on prior weeks, months, and years to be reminded of all your progress and learnings.

The app features:
- Daily journaling throughout the day with prompts specific to athletes
- Goal setting guide to plan out your big dreams, visions, and objectives for the season(s)
- Calendar to filter, search, and look back through all your daily entries, workouts, and races
- Personal trends analysis that shows your patterns in sleep, mood, workout results, nutrition, and more

All your information is stored securely locally on your phone with no requirement of an account, email, or any data collection. This journal is simple and with one objective, to harness your inner voice and hold yourself accountable day in and day out to become the best you can be in sport and life.

Research has shown that writing can help any athlete:
- reduce stress and anxiety
- increase self-awareness
- sharpen mental skills
- promote genuine psychological insight
- advance creative inspiration and insight
- strengthen coping abilities

** say hi **
I created The Athlete’s Journal because I’ve experienced first hand the benefits of an athlete’s journal. As an athlete, I’ve journaled consistently for over 3 years and have seen the growth it has brought me within my sport of cycling. I want to help other dedicated athletes become the best they can so I created this app. I’m always looking forward to feedback, and working hard to improve the app so I encourage you to drop me a line at dfonyo@gmail.com
Happy training!

Great Athletic Journaling App for Any Sport or Experience Level!

I enjoy using Athlete Journal because it provides me with a central and concise way to track personal, athletic, and overall life goals. This app provides me with a platform to track injuries and the graph trends page help point out when I may need to take a rest day in order to prevent further injury.

Athlete Journal encourages me to hold myself more accountable and helps me develop a routine in the morning to facilitate a more positive mindset. I use this app to track all of my workouts that range from CrossFit and yoga to biking, running, and swimming.

If you are looking for an app that is easy to use and incorporates many different aspects of athletic performance (mindset, goals, nutrition) then this is a great app to try!

Great Journaling App

I’ve used other journaling apps (Journey), but this one is better for me as it is more geared towards achieving athletic goals. I really like the mindfulness style of approach with the affirmations, as well as goal setting exercises. I’d recommend it for those interested in utilizing writing/journaling as a way to make consistent progress and to get out of mental ruts.
