We're thrilled that so many of you guys got the 2018 Rose Gold Fit Planner and have left bunches of positive reviews! Thank you :)

But now as we settle into the beginning processes of designing the 2019 Fit Planner, we need to get down to the nitty gritty and we want to hear it all from you - the good, the bad, and the ugly! 

  • What must we definitely keep in the Fit Planner?
  • What did you find unnecessary, unused or annoying?
  • What do you need more of?
  • Any cool ideas that we didn't think of?

Thank you so much for your feedback. Please be super honest. We don't get better if you don't tell us the hard truth!

This was my first planner, and I really liked it overall! After using nearly everyday for eight months, I have a few comments:

- The structure needs to be sturdier, it’s August and the edges have dog-eared and there are visible scratches at the front and back. Would a vinyl/material be a better option. A suggestion on top of this is to make a variety of designs this year and in the upcoming years we can buy refills?

- Months need to be where they belong: hands down the MOST frustrating thing. If a month ends mid week, fine. But PLEASE start every month as it should, even it means extra blank pages (doodle space?) I understand printing needs to be in twos, but please fix this!

- Week pages: Week pages also NEED to be with their corresponding week; I found it pretty useless to have the hour-by-hour planner, two weeks ahead or behind its meal planning page

- Habit trackers at the beginning of the month

- This week’s goal at the beginning of the week

- Body focus should be by the daily workout, doesn’t make sense for it to be in a whole new section than “today’s workout”

- Hours slept: didn’t love, but seems others did :)

- Monthly recaps are also not really my jam: hit or miss

- Designs could be bolder!

- Calendar: No holidays please! Not every country abides by American public holidays

- Week days should start on Mondays :)

-Money tracker? I use the doodle space for this, but would be great to have a dedicated section :)

- Today’s workout is a bit big; most people would only write a sentence in this section

- A place to have ’important things this week" a place to write upcoming birthdays/meeting/etc that you may miss in the monthly view

- Instead of groceries, a meal planner would fit better. The groceries section is too small to write everything I need and I feel I would use it more to have a space where I can write down some tasty meals I would like that week, or a recipe I saw online. The ingredients can be written elsewhere

-Random thoughts/self compliments/don’t forget: Meh. To me all different names for doodle space.

WAIT! Please don’t kill the doodle space! I use that for Great things that happen that week and to take notes for the week and I double down on the idea that the grocery list be perforated. Also I ABSOLUTELY use the inspiration sections on each month and on each week. That’s how I set my vision and develop healthy mindsets. I honestly could use that daily! Please don’t get rid of that!

I have been waiting for this all year! I made a video on YT at the top of the year going through the planner and received over 3K hits! I can’t wait to do another for 2019. The planner served me very well since this was my first one. Here is what I would make different: 1. The cover and pages started to tear from the ring binder midway through the year. Is there any way that you can reinforce the pages and cover to make them stronger? 2. The gold lettering on the front was ADORABLE, but didn’t last long at all. I would prefer something similar but that has way more longevity. 3. A book mark 4. A better layed out open vision area in the beginning. The boxes were fine, but this is the year LAUNCH PAD! I just wished that it had more passion and more questions and a bit more breathing room for me to write. 5. On the daily page, have 6 boxes to check off things to do…but then leave 4 lines with no boxes. I needed space to just write. I wanted to track 3 good things that happened every day or make a list of things and had no space or had to cover up those boxes.

Also THANK YOU FOR CHANGING THE REVIEW QUESTION every month. I loved that. I loved the pocket in the back and the tabs. I loved the colors and the images on each month. Overall, such a great planner! Please get another in my hands…I promise to get up another review on YT! :)

I love these fit planners they keep me so organized. My favorite parts are the monthly mini journal sections, the weekly calendars that help plan hour by hour for apts., work, to-dos etc. i also love the habit trackers and the mini journal at the end of each month. Is there a way to put more space in the weekly section to add more things per hour? Can’t wait to see next year’s journal!

I loved the planner! The spiral was great because it was easy to flip between the monthly and daily calendars. But I wish there was more room for the food and more room to write down workouts—sometimes I have lengthy strength workouts, cardio, sometimes I’ll do another sweat session in the afternoon. And a little more room in the food—I couldn’t tell if I was eating too much or just wrote too big! I like the water tracker. It’s really helped me drink more water. Overall an AWESOME product. It’s really pretty on top of being super useful and I love just writing down everything to organize my life. So don’t change too much!😁

Please keep the spiral binding because it is so much easier to flip pages than a flat book would be. I previously had a flat one and didnt like the binding. Barely used it

I love the planner! I’ve purchased it 2 years in a row. I’d love it if the new one hand the hourly breakdown for each day next to that days other entries (meals, water, workout. I find I do not flip back to that week in a glance. Love the body focus slot for each day too

I love everything about the fit planner…Expecially the color of it. The sections in it help me with everything possible that I need to plan for. Though I might not stay on track as I would like to(my fault) it does help me stay motivated and try to lose weight. I like the pocket in the back of the book. Very useful. I know this wasn’t on the list but for next year’s fit planner what if u did something teal with a gold accent. Just an idea.

I use the monthly habits section its helped me a lot to become consistent with my work habit. I would love a blank page at the very back of the planner to write down things I need or want, cool quotes, dreams, songs, etc. And something that would make this planner better would be a cool hack to hold my pen :) love blogilates!!! Can’t wait for the 2019 planner!

I LOVE this planner and I’ve tried them all, trust me. I didn’t use the doodle space and instead turned it into a notes area. LOVED the grocery list, daily workout area, and to dos. Love the spiral ring! Wish I could’ve had an area on the splash pages to write my goals for the month. I ended up just writing there anyway. It really helps me focus on my goals.

I LOVE this calendar. It fits my needs. I love the size. If it was made smaller or anything was taken out I would be SOOOOO MADDDDDD. I think those who want a smaller planner should have the option of having a phone app or something. I do think that a financial planning column where the doodle space is would be great. I do really like having the doodle space for my own notes though.

I adore everything about it! Mostly the weekly spread, the places where I can log my food/exercise/water intake and the monthly goals! The only thing I would change is the size, I would prefer it to be larger and if there was a option to have the cover be baby blue that would be heaven!

I love the idea of having a place for monthly measurements.

One thing I do find annoying is that there is SOOOO much stuff to flip through. For me, getting rid of the weekly/daily timebreak down would be best as you already have the monthly calendar and the to do list (which can be used for writing down timed appts too).

Definitely keep the weekly doodle spaces and goals.

I really liked 2017’s planner the best. Had everything I needed and nothing that went to waste.

I didn’t know how to edit but I would LOVE to have a place for monthly measurements and weight check ins to keep my in track! I had to write them in myself on the monthly tabbed pages and now those pages are seriously ugly looking lol That would be so amazing I’d literally die <3 Rose gold is my jam this year too sothe color is beautiful. Thanks a lot

I wanted to start by saying I love this journal so much. I would keep the hour by hour schedule because that is my absolute LIFE SAVER. When I think I don’t have time to work out it shows me that i actually do. I like the amount of space each day gets and the doodle spaces are nice but I forget about them all the time.

I wish that this journal had just a handful of free pages that I can put notes on or recipes or whatever I wanted on them. The folder is something I actually don’t use at all and I think having pages there would be more helpful. I hope that the habit tracker ends up being at the beginning of the month instead of the end because It’s much easier to forget because I have no reason to check the end of the month for anything. I always check the monthly overview and if it were right there it would be more convenient.

I love the size of it and the fact that it has a hard cover. As a college student I have so much crap in my backpack that i’m always ruined my journal is going to be ruined but it’s held up through an entire semester. I think the journal could be a tiny bit bigger, I have seriously tiny handwriting but i’m still struggling for writing space. End of the month reflection really helps me put my thoughts together and reflect and better myself.

I don’t think I’m ever going to buy another planner from anywhere else. So far I’m having an amazing experience.

By far the best calendar that I have ever found.

Loves:
1. Love the time period goes until midnight, I work a night shift until midnight so I can plan my shift through the night 😍
2. Doodle section is the boom
3. Love weekly goals to help plan my week
4. Water tracker amazing since I forget drink water
5. Grocery list is great for meal planning
6. Don’t forget section is helpful, with everything I have going on

Only thing I would like to see change is wish the front was black instead of pink, not really a pink kind of person. And wish has extra note sections

Love my fit planner! I would definitely keep habit tracker and to do list area for each day. I haven’t really used the sleep tracker much. But that’s just me.. I would like to see more space in the back for lists/notes. I use that area to start writing down Christmas gift ideas throughout the year and other lists. Great planner!!

Fit Planner 2018 is just the best. Please definitely keep the ring binder as it would be really difficult to write in any other. It’s perfect for turning back the pages to where you need to be. Absolutely love the doodle space and the self compliment etc at the bottom of each week, the inspirational quotes and the month review page! While I can see why people want it to be smaller, I feel we would have to compromise on content too much to get the smaller size.

I absolutely ADORE the 2018 fit planner, especially:
1. per hour spreads for every week
2. grocery list
3. sleep tracker
4. to-do list for every day
5. “doodle space” b/c I can use it to write notes for the week
6. monthly habit tracker!

However, there are a few improvements that could be nice:
1. different hours for the weekly spreads (I think a 5am start is reasonable for the morning people out there)
2. a perforated grocery list would be really handy as mentioned by someone else!
3. a cover that doesn’t scrape off
4. extra “notes” sheets in the front or back!!!
5. thinner if possible??

Hey Cassey, I miss the beautiful colors and floral prints of the 2017 planner, and I miss the beautiful illustrations that were in the 2.0 fit planner. For me, I didn’t like how simple the transition page designs (like where it says the month name and on the adjacent page it has a simplified design were in the 2018 planner. And I don’t like pink or rose gold, so for me, it wasn’t something I wanted to look at every day for motivation. You design beautiful floral patterns for your activewear (which I love), I was really hoping for some of your pattern designing (even if the designs aren’t floral) to come through in the planner.

The colors are great! I don’t use the grocery list. I think 7am-7pm are suffice times for the weekly pages. Also, I hope there is a way to make the planner thinner – perhaps somehow incorporate the food log with the weekly pages? It’s a bit much having to go back and forth between the pages. I also tend to forget to use the water and sleep log, then again, I drink a lot of water throughout the day anyway so it’s not something I personally need. The size is great but the bulk isn’t. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll come up with something amazing based on our feedback – maybe show us draft pages before making the whole thing? Either way, I’m looking forward to the 2019 planner!

I didn’t get one but, i love the week page that has all the times on. It helps me stay on top of everything when i use it in my own journal. I wish it would be a bit bigger in size (I got 2017 blogilates journal) I just felt like I was squishing everything.

I love the design and aesthetic of the 2018 fit planner! I carry it everywhere.

Use all the time (and should definitely keep): daily to-do list, meal tracker, habit tracker, monthly calendar, motivational quotes, monthly overview, grocery list

Never use: weekly self-compliment and random thought.

Would like to see: more space for monthly and weekly goals. I love all the goal space for the year but I like to set more short term goals and write down things I need to accomplish in the coming week or month. Another cool thing to add could be a daily mood box or a space where you could write something you’re grateful for.

Overall though I LOVE this planner. I 2017 I tried out bullet journaling, which is kind of a make-your-own-planner/everything else notebook. You can be super creative with it but it was time consuming, so I was searching for something where I could track habits, have a monthly calendar, write down my workouts and track my meals, and a place just as a regular planner. This fit the bill and is gorgeous!

Unfortunately I didn’t buy the planner this year because I thought it was too expensive and I wasn’t sure if I was going to use it throughout. But after making my own diary and reading all the positive comments I really want to buy one. What would be nice to include is a ‘gratefulness’ box. Also with the pages that introduce the new month, maybe it could be beautiful pictures of sceneries to really open our minds to the world, especially for those who are travel oriented because the current ones, although they are colourful, look a bit childish. In my diary, I also use the daily planner more than weekly because I forget to add things into the hourly slots and sometimes when I don’t have much except studying the entire day (which is a lot of days) it makes me feel bad that the entire page is blank. I love the daily planner idea where you can put down exercise, food, gratefulness, to-do list and everything all in one. I think it would also be cool if you gave us some fitness challenges at the end of the month, like 100 squats or something, to really look forward to it. And the motivational quotes for everyday are a must! Thank you so much for organizing such a great book and I will definitely buy it next year!

I didn’t get to buy the planner. But I saw the videos and reviews and was excited. It had hourly schedule options, health options. I don’t know everything it had, but what I look for for a planner:
Health section: food planning/meal prep, water intake tracker, exercise routine journal (write the names of what you’re doing or target areas), sleep schedule tracker
Calendar: monthly, duality (broken up hourly/half hours), and a small yearly over view
Other: important reminders and to-dos, goals, contacts or important info, conversions (oz to lbs, calories to lb, how to calculate BMI and other health measurements, etc), inspirational quotes/sayings/cute animal pic (really anything to get me to say “awe” or keep me going)

I love the Rose Gold Planner this year! I really like the monthly calendar, and the daily entries with food, water, sleep!!. I use the daily entries the most. I also love the monthly tracker in the back to write down all the different goals I want to achieve. To see that macro view of all the goals is great. I think where that is now (end of the month is fine).

I don’t use the weekly spread too much but think it is good to accommodate those who do use it so that this planner has everything (daily entries, weekly view, monthly calendar). I also dont doodle but sometimes use it for photos or something else.

I absolutely love the planner, and the color for this year was perfect; it worked for monochromatic people like me, as well as those who like some sparkle and color. My main complaint is the planner’s durability; Ive noticed that the rose gold script scrapes off easily, and the planner just gets kind of unavoidably beat up in my backpack. These planners are always so beautiful, and I want my next one to last me all year, so a thick protective coating for the outside would be wonderful!

KEEP
- The water and meal tracker
- Love the colour and style and I really like that every month is a different colour
- Also love the Habit Tracker, but like everyone else, I wish it was at the start
- The Today I Need To section with the tick boxes is really helpful as is the Today’s Workout

LEAVE
- Don’t like the week to view with the appointment times before every week. It ruins the flow for me and I would never use it, I use my mobile calendar for appts
- I also don’t use the doodle space. Could this become the grocery list and or a weight loss tracker?

IDEAS
- It would be great if the grocery list could be perforated, so you could rip it out and take it shopping with you, as the planner is too heavy for me to carry with me.

I absolutely love my planner and I will buy it every year. I love that I can use use it for more than just a Fit planner. It fits so well in my lifestyle. I use it every day and I take it with me everywhere. The only thing that I would really really love to see and would appreciate is pockets. I had in a previous planner and on each main divider it had a pocket on and it was nice to hold a few things in there each month. I actually made my own pockets on each tab so if you could implement that for next year that would be AWESOME. I will buy it either way though :)

This is my second year with the fit planner and I love it!

Favourites:
-Meal and water tracker (everyday, all day)
-Workout space. I take my planner to the gym with my whole workout written down. Wish there was a bit more room.
-Today I need to section. Great! I prefer to write everything plus the time here instead of going back and forth on the per hour.
-Love the habit tracker, but would like to see it at the beginning of the month or for each week. It’s too forgetful at the back
-Miss the thoughts and big ideas section form 2017
-Monthly goals and recap
-Loved the rose gold colour and the artwork was nice, but the 2017 graphics were gorgeous and blew me away!
-Miss the workout challenges and Cassy’s notes. Never enough quotes and motivational mantras!
-One word to describe this month/day (really makes you think)
-Love that every month has a colour appropriate to the weather :P
Lots of people have commented on the size, I personally like the current size. It fits in my purse, gym bag and travel bag.

New:
-Daily self care. How are you feeling today/one thing you are grateful for/one good thing that happened today
-Monthly fitness goals and progress is a must for 2019! Helps you realize how much you’re changing
-Food or recipes tips from Cassy!
-A financial goal or spending, but I think if the doodle space was more universal people could it for whatever the like. I like being able to personalize instead of having wasted space of sections I don’t use.

Needs Improvement:
-Especially my 2017 planner and starting on the 2018 planner the detail on the front cover came off after daily use of carrying around the planner.
-My 2018 planner arrived damaged with a bent corner and elastic broken (Still attached by a few threads). A stronger elastic would be nice
-I personally don’t use the hour breakdown at all and find it a bother to flip through the extra page when going through my book.
-Doodle space (don’t use) I prefer to write lists down
-I use the sleep, but not really all at the same time. Take it or leave it
-Groceries I don’t use since I don’t take my planner shopping. Take it or leave it

Already excited for the 2019 planner <3

Love it! Bought these 2 years in a row! My biggest con is how short and bulky it is compared to similar ones I see at office stores. I’d like to see it a bit larger page wise and maybe with the extra page space would give us more room to write in. Because of the small page sizes I have to write super small to fit everything in. Dont use the hour by hour maybe this could be broken into blocks (kinda like cable companies lol) maybe 6am-10am 11am-3pm again with more space to jot ur meeting tasks etc in there. The month at a glance hope these squares get more space added to them too I use this the most for quick meetings dates etc and it would great if the daily squares of the full month calendar pages had more writIng room too.
Love that you want our feedback! Love you line and you purpose and movement! You and your team and hands downs Fabulous!

Love:
Food/water log, hours slept, workout section, the checklist!
The encouraging quote at the beginning of the week
The month view birthdays, events, goals and self care section
year long goals
different monthly colors
Don’t use:
the habit tracker – I keep forgetting to use it I think because it’s at the back of the month instead of weekly
monthly mantra
Would be nice to have:
A place to write your weight down – daily or at the start/end of the week
It would be nice if the plan your day by the hour section was split into two groups – It’s hard to explain without visuals- but right now the planner’s organized S M Tu and W Th F Sat on another page group – it’d be nice if the plan by the hour section for the second half of the week (W Th F Sat) was in between S M Tu so you don’t have to flip back and forth so often. I use the plan by the hour section a lot in the beginning of the week but less in the end of the week.
A few pages for notes at the back/front of the planner – I write down addresses and log in info in my planner It’d be nice if there was a section for that

It’d be NICE if I could buy another 2018 planner nowww :) My friends birthday is this week and I did not plan well but I don’t think it’s available anymore

I love this planner! I had already purchased 2 other planner before I found this one and neither really gave me what I wanted. I have added some things to make it more functional for me and I would love for my ideas to be considered in the 2019 planner. It would be great if I could upload pictures of what I added to my planner. The 2019 planner needs:
1. A thicker & stronger rose gold band – the band to keep the pages together is beautiful but for the size of the planner it is too thin.
2. A page with the yearly calendar at a glance – I added a page from an old planner that had the 2017 and 2018 calendar years on one page and I taped it to one of the front pages of my fit planner. It would be great to have a 2018/2019 calendar –at-a-glance page.
3. Smaller coil binding – I absolutely love the rose gold spiral binding. I would like to see if it could be a little smaller
4. Pocket in very back – Currently there is only one page in the very back of the fit planner with pockets. Having those 2 pockets is nice. However, the backing of the planner could be utilized better. I added a pocket from another old planner there.
5. Month Tabs on front and back – the labels of the month are great. However, if I need to flip back to a previous month then I have to flip the whole planner over to see which tab it is. The month labels should be double-sided.
6. Consolidate pages/Move Habit Tracker – Although, the designer pages introducing the month are fun and festive, I think this could be reworked. I ask that you move the habit tracker just after the monthly calendar and make it a single page with a blank page on the back for additional note space or additional habits to track. Then print the monthly recap to the back of the last weekly page. This would leave one pretty, festive page that introduces the next month.
I have more ideas but these are good for now!!

When I went on a recent trip to Florida, I only brought a carry on for the 6 day trip. I left the fit planner behind because it was too bulky. The bulkiness has been a bit of an issue for me because of how much I travel on a regular basis. I 100% understand why its as thick as it is, but I wish their was a way to carry only the sections I needed.

My friend then told me how at her work, they have quarterly planners. So rather than carry bulky planners everywhere (because it is a lifesource at her work), they carry 3-4month ones instead. I think it would be cool to have something like that. Where this planner can break into 3-4 seperate planners or you can be able to carry it all together.

Have you ever heard of Em Cosmetics? They used to have these giant palletes called Life Palletes where you can remove any of the eyeshadow/lipstick/cheek colors and move it into a mini travel pallete. Not saying thats exactly how you should make it, I’m just trying to think of an example to get my idea across xP.

As for content, I love everything in the fit planner. I do, however, use the doodle space and the extra daily to-do list space for mini journal passages and notes.

Thank you and I look forward to next year’s planner. Of all the planners out there, this has practically everything I’ve been wanting.

What must we definitely keep in the Fit Planner?
Everything! I wouldn’t mind the doodle space gone, it’s what I use the least.

Any cool ideas that we didn’t think of?What did you find unnecessary, unused or annoying?
US holidays for people outside the US. I guess it is difficult to design a planner for people with different holidays all over the world. Maybe it’s best to add none and have us add our own? I added my countrie’s holidays to the monthly pages when I received my planner. It was a matter of 15 minute work but some people might complain about having to add their own. There is nothing I don’t use at all, but I don’t always use the daily to do list on the daily page and doodle space, but wouldn’t call it unnecessary or annoying.

What do you need more of?
Space. Some parts are incredibly small, for example the weekly page. I don’t use the weekly page to plan ahead, I actually use it as a daily video game diary / recap which is sort of necessary for my job. I may not use the weekly page for what it is originally designed for but I still think it’s too small for its original purpose. I use the doodle space for more detailed recap entries that don’t have space on the weekly page. I’d also like to have a bigger workout space to add in a more detailed manner what I did and how much weight I used. It seems some people say the planner is too big, while others say it is too small.. I wouldn’t mind a bigger one so I hope you can find a good balance.

Any cool ideas that we didn’t think of?
A small daily recap page would be nice. I sometimes use the To-do list for it. Please make the next planner a little less girly.

Additional : Things I don’t want to see in a new planner : Don’t add a menstrual tracker box or weight loss box as someone suggested below. The habit tracker or monthly page can be used for such things. I would like you to add things everyone can use or eventually customize to their own needs and wants (which is another thing someone mentioned further below). I also think it’s unnecessary to include a book mark, it’s something everyone can buy themselves. I’d rather buy my own than have one included that I may not like but I guess nowadays people want everything handed to them. I also thought the price of the planner was a little too expensive but the price reflects the good quality. Please keep the price range for the next planner if possible.

First time buying this calander and I love it. My favorite part is the habit tracker. Being new to fitness I love being able to check off each day. I have been able to use it for other habits I am working on too. Iove the big ring binder it makes it easy to turn the pages. I don’t think I would change anything you all did a great job and it’s definitely worth the money!?

Hi Cassey! I love this planner! Even though other people thought it is too pricey for me to buy it since I live here in the Philippines still it is so helpful! Here are my comments:
1. What must we definitely keep in the Fit Planner? Everything! Maybe just give a guide for how other popsters can maximize the planner. Here’s mine:
- Monthly Calendar: Holidays, birthdays, and meeting/schedule titles only.
- Weekly Calendar: Unlike others, I super love this! It keeps me track of what I do for the day and remind me that I only have 24 hours a day.
- Bigger space for workout: I also put mental and emotional health exercise to maximize this space.
- Doodle space: Although I don’t doodle I use this to put different lists of recurring errands I can check off for the whole week so that I would just use the to do list space for those that are not.
- Habit tracker: I also agree that this should be placed after the monthly calendar.
- Grocery list
- Planner cover color

2. What did you find unnecessary, unused or annoying?
- USA Holidays for us international popsters
- Cover which I am so careful this year thinking it would easily fade again
- Ring bind – I agree if you can find something smaller than the one in 2018

3. What do you need more of?
- Calendar for the year and next year
- Inspirational tips each month (you’re always good with that!)
- Before and After pics with measurements, how far we can run, strength progress, how do we feel, each month to keep us motivated

4. Any cool ideas that we didn’t think of?
- Menstrual tracker (why not?)
- Finance tracker?
- If possible for the planner to be water proof?

Thanks!

ALSO! Everyone oodles over how cute the planner is in school lol. My friends still pass it around and flip through it even though I’ve been carrying it around for 2 months. Would love a couple more designs on daily and weekly pages, but I doodle all over the margins anyways. Thank you!!!

I LOVE my 2018 Fit Planner! It’s my first one, I think I’m doing a good job sticking to it. The check off to do lists and the weekly schedule I use every day. I’m in high school and run a small business and it’s the perfect amount of space to keep track of everything I have to get done. I love the reflection page at the end of each month, the doodle sections, the spots for goals and compliments, and quotes. I also appreciate the snack section!!! I think the habit tracker is an awesome idea but I don’t use it. I just don’t like flipping to it every day lol whoops. I would probably use it if it was on a week page? Also, I would love book marks for the book! I started out using 3 post its, one for day, week, then month. Now I have 3 little ribbons tied to the top of the spiral part so I can flip to each section faster. Thank you for putting in so much time to the planner!!!! It’s really helped me be more productive with my time, be more conscious of what I’m eating, and I look forward to writing in it every day :)

This was the second time I bought the blogilates fit planner and I`m in love with them. It fits my needs perfctly!
I liked this one even more than the one before, because of the weekly spread. Allover I really like the layout and wouldn`t really change anything about it. I liked the flower patterns from the 2017 planner more and was a little bit sad about the colours and illustrations in the 2018 planner. Uh, I also like the recap pages! They are perfect to reflect. I don`t really use the habit tracker though and use the doodle space for meal planning.
Allover I wouldn`t change much, especially the layout I think is perfect. Thank you so much for creating the perfect planner and I´m looking forward to the 2019 planner. Also I´m from Germany and I have to pay a lot of shipping, but I think it´s worth it, because the planner keeps me organized the whole year.

I have commented before but wanna comment again. I see so many people wanting boxes for weight loss and measurements. Please keep in mind that not all of us are exercising for weight loss! I exercise for muscle gain. So having a box that states “weight lost” wouldn’t be useful for me. I know it’s a Fit Planner but not all of us are doing the same thing for the same reason. I only do Pilates for my abs, while lower body and arms is all strength training. A monthly page for our own fitness goals with empty boxes would be suitable in this case, that way we can all customize it to our needs.

I also think some people don’t understand that the spiral has to be the size it is, or else you couldn’t flip the pages as comfortably as you can. A smaller spiral means you couldn’t bend or fold the planner to only display one page. I personally don’t mind its size at all. I was also surprised to read that the cover came off for some after a short time of use. My cover still looks just like new.

Of course I want you to respect our ideas but if the spiral needs to be big for example, please make it big. Please don’t let the overall quality suffer just because some people need time to adjust. If you feel something is needed to improve a product or the longevity of a product, please don’t hesitate to do what you think is best. You have more experience creating a product.

What must we definitely keep in the Fit Planner?
- I love the monthly motto, but I rarely turn to that page. It would be nice to have where you have doodle space.
- I love the habit trackers! I wouldn’t mind a few more and maybe moving it to the front of the month.
- I love the water and meal trackers!
What did you find unnecessary, unused or annoying?
- I love the to-do list! I wouldn’t mind the section being a little bigger though.
- The doodle spot, I used to to write my monthly motto each week and keep track of my weight loss.
- I didn’t really use the weekly section of specific times. I just wrote the time on the to-do list section.
What do you need more of?
- see above
Any cool ideas that we didn’t think of?
- I would love a monthly over view of weight loss and measurements.
- I think an emotional tracker would be helpful, probably monthly?
- I would love a little zipper pouch to put a pen or some sticky notes or stickers

I really like the planner. The spiral has not yet gotten bent but I understand what other reviewers are saying. I thought that the bulkiness would bother me but it doesn’t and I take it everywhere. I am not too crazy about the page layout. I have previously purchased two of the 16 week food journals and I like that format better. I think there is more space for meals and time of meals. I like that you can put the amount of water that you drink instead of just crossing off a picture of a water bottle. I also like the “how’d today go” reflection section. I would love to see more of that in the next yearly planner. Additionally, I think that the pages with the time and body focus should be replaced with today’s to do list. not only would that give more space on the diet and exercise pages but I see no point in the body focus pages. I rarely use the grocery list, maybe if there was grocery list page with perforation so I could pull it out and use it.

This was my first year switching to a small planner and it was great!
However, I miss having a larger layout. I’d like to see a thinner, but larger planner for 2019.
I find the 2018 planner to be a bit bulky at times, especially when i add notes and post-its.
I’d like to see the monthly habit at the beginning of the month, instead of at the end.
Please include more space in the weekly spread. There is not enough space to write detailed entries.
It would be cool to see a space dedicated for expenses. i understand that it’s a fit planner, but since I carry it around everyday, I think a spending log would be awesome to see.
To conclude, I think the biggest aspect where I’d liek to se a change would be the size of the planner. Thinner and larger planner if possible :)

Hello Cassey,

First I want to thank you for creating such a comprehensive Journal! I really only have a few issues with the layout.

What I Love:

-I LOVE the boxed calendar at the beginning of the month. This is a quick way to jot down important dates right away.

-I love the week at a glance format for writing out your day by the hour.

-The details of: goals in the front of the journal, the recap at the back of the journal, habit trackers (the more the merrier, it makes me challenge myself in a positive way), the sleep/water tracker/grocery list, the monthly recaps, the doodle space/random thought/“don’t forget”/weekly goals and self-compliment spaces are sooo amazing. Do not remove those please! Perhaps modify the “Body Focus” part to a “Daily Intention” part?

-Definitely keep the pocket sleeves in the journal.

-I love that each month has its own theme/ staggered tabs.

-I like the spiral bound scheme so that I can write flat in my journal and also store a pen conveniently.

A Few Cons:

-This notebook needs additional blank note pages. I would like to see TWO full blank note pages (or a front-back page) at the end of each month and 2-4 pages both at the very beginning and very end of the journal to write down long term goals, notes, and anything else. I mean, this is our journal we will be using for an entire year! The more note pages, the less I will have to use post-its, and random loose-leaf paper to stick in the pockets of this journal. Plus, additional blank pages leave the user to be able to customize the journal even more.

-Constantly flipping between our day/week at a glance and what we ate/ our to do list is not always convenient. I am constantly modifying my to do list with scheduling those tasks for the week. I’m not sure how to fix that since I like seeing my week at a glance. The only real way to fix that is by having each day have it’s own page (with the habit tracker built into each day) which is not as convenient as having the week at a glance view.

-Maybe add an area where people can track their fitness progress at the end of each month? A place for measurements, pictures and tracking weight.

-If you could add some sort of place marker for the day that would be great! I’m literally always leaving my journal open, and therefore bending all the pages.

Overall:

I would totally recommend this journal! I was skeptical at first, but this version is more my style than her other fit-journals. Ultimately, if more note pages are added and nothing else changes THIS would be my perfect journal.

Thanks again Cassey! You are so wonderful for listening to our feedback!! <3

Not only is the planner beautiful but it has been helpful keeping organized. I suppose if anything else were to be added then maybe a mood tracker. I have an app that does this but I would like it all in one place like a single planner.

First of all, I love this planner, so thank you.

My suggestions: move the habit tracker. Maybe make it a part of the weekly layout? I don’t feel I need as many as are given but I always forget them because they’re in the back. Maybe just do like 2-4 habits to track for the week? Smaller goals make it more attainable anyway!

This is really the only part of the planner that hasn’t worked great for me. Honestly I love it, and will be planning to buy them yearly from now on.

I really love this planner, I use for school and work so it works really well for me.
Must Keep:
- I like the weekly spread because it helps me know what I have going on every week and how much free time I have.
- I also like the habit tracker but I would put maybe after the monthly calendar because I keep forgetting it’s there until the end of the month.
- I love the amount of space I have to write for the individual days.

Potential Changes:
- I would like to have so more blank pages for notes and general information things, because I always have it on me so if I have to write something down I can put it in there and not forget or lose the information I needed.
- I would like a way to track the progress for each month, so maybe having a section with weight, and measurements would be nice so that I can see the progress I made and find out why i didn’t in a certain month.

Otherwise I love the coloring of this planner and the floral designs throughout it are beautiful. Thanks so much for continuing to make the planners and calendars!

What must we definitely keep in the Fit Planner?
-Love the spots on the individual days for the workout (also I love that it it’s larger than before because I can easily write multiple things in the space).

What did you find unnecessary, unused or annoying?
- I’m not a big fan of the weekly spread/schedule that is before Sunday because I never look at it and I find that it’s easier just to write my schedule on the individual days.
-I also found that I don’t really use the habit tracker as much as I thought I would. I fill it out at the beginning of the month but then forget to continue it.

What do you need more of?
-More of the floral prints from 2017! I loved the floral motif from the 2017 calendar. And maybe some more motivating quotes throughout the planner.

Any cool ideas that we didn’t think of?
-A progress page at the end of the months. Maybe we could track our measurements at the end of each month.

Huge fan of the planner!

I would add a bLank notes section
Also it’s hard to write on the left side of the book close to the spiral.. I have to hold my pen super high, and it’s a little too big and heavy

Other than those things I love it!

Definitely Keep: habit tracker, and the yearly/monthly goals and reflections sections! I use the daily meals tracker too!
The habit tracker is my most used and loved section!
Unused: body focus, I find that I don’t use that as often as I thought I might, I didn’t use it at all in february
Want more: fun stickers, maybe a planner/sticker bundle for future planners

I love this planner and, honestly, don’t think that many things should change.

I LOVE:
- Monthly, weekly, daily views. I think all are very important to succeed in our goals, we need to PLAN and to SEE them.
- Water tracking, exercise tracking, food tracking, sleep tracking
- Goal setting and recap space
- Doodle space
- Each month has a unique color and theme
- Pocket in the back (I keep sticky notes which I use as bookmarks/grocery list to bring with me)
- The spiral makes it so much easier to write in vs a bound ‘book’ style.

Ideas for Improvements:
- Another less ‘girly’ color option. I covered my husband’s in duct tape to make it look a little ‘tougher’, but I don’t personally love pink either so having an option would have been appreciated for both of us.
- Instead of the ‘body focus’ in the week view, I’ve used it as an ‘intention’ or ‘mindfulness’ focus. Will I focus on patience, energy, generosity, etc that day.
- It’d be nice to have a movable bookmark.
- A few blank pages in the very back would be nice to use as extra ‘brain dump’ space, project ideas, long term to-dos, goals, etc.

Honestly, it is so very perfect as it is right now. If you changed nothing I would be content.
Thanks for taking the time to create such a helpful planner and for asking for feedback.

I really like the menu and today what I need to pages. Also like the calendar each month and love the designs!!! The quotes are cool too!
I do not use the groceries or time spread pages.
Would love it if there were a few blank pages in the back so I could write down the books I plan to read this year, as well as the places I would like to visit or recipes I would like to try out, etc.
Thank you!!!

I totally love the Habit Tracker, that is a MUST HAVE next year! I sometimes like to use it as a diary, so I use the I need to do is two parts, What to do and What I did today. I am not using the Groceries list. I am sooo much looking forward new calendar made by you gorgeous girls! XOXO

1. Please keep the following : Self-compliment, Random Thought, Monthly Mantra boxes. The first few pages of 2018 where we can write our goals and dreams. The final pages of 2018 to review our goals and dreams. Habit tracker. Water tracker. Please make the next one just as sturdy and around the same size. It’s not too big! I don’t know why some say it is.

2. The grocery list is a little useless unless you take a picture of it or take the planner with you to the store. Instead, 52 separate removable sheets for grocery lists would be great. 52, so one for each week of the year.

3. Please do not use bright colors such as yellow. In 2018’s planner November’s letters are all yellow and it’s gonna be a little hard to see when you wanna write stuff down in a room with dimmed lights. I only have dimmed lights at home.

4. A few note pages at the end would be nice ♥

5. If you include a little pocket for the final page again, please make it rubber foam or something, not paper. I watched the video where Cassey showed the planner and I thought it was made of rubber foam.

6. Please keep using a different design for each month.

The 2018 planner was my very first planner from Popflex, so I do not know what kind of features this one has from the previous versions. But please keep almost all, if not everything I have listed first. It’s one of the main reasons why I wanted the planner! Needless to say, I am sure I am gonna get the 2019, especially if it keeps the overall design of the 2018 one. Thank you for all your hard work!

Thanks for asking us! I love my planner! Here’s a few comments/suggestions:
Things I LOVE: 1. Having a Monthly Calendar and then the Weekly Calendar, 2. Having the “Day calendars” to write “Today I need to…” and also the “Today’s Workout”; 3. Love the “Day” pages with space to record Meals and water and to do lists & sleep record. Probably the Best thing about the whole planner. SUPER helpful!; 4. Size – at first I thought it was a bit fat and small but now I’ve gotten used to it; 5. Love the pockets in the back. Things I dislike/find unnecessary/helpful: 1. It’s a bit tricky maneuvering between the “Daily” pages and the “Week” pages. I don’t know how to fix this but I am constantly trying to navigate between the Month, Weekly and Daily pages…so lots of extra page flipping – more than I prefer. 2. The space to record things on the “Weekly pages” where it starts at 6am and goes to midnight. It’s a bit small to record stuff especially since I have 3 kids and a hubby and we have busy schedules with multiple things going on at the same time. 3. Grocery column: probably could make more use of this I just haven’t. 4. I don’t use the Recap pages (but that’s probably just my fault! :) 5. I don’t really like when two months are in one week and you can only find the days of that month in either month not both. For example, Feb 1,2 and 3rd are only under the “January” tab. Maybe duplicate those days in both months.

One of my favorite things is that this planner starts on Sundays! I have no idea why people like to start their week on Monday out there in the “planner designing world”, but when this one came out IT DIDN"T!! THANK YOU!! As someone who medically needs to track their hours of sleep every night, I really appreciate there is a section just for that. I also am a freak about counting my water intake, so thank you for including that! The monthly tabs are great so I can just flip to where I need to go and don’t have to search forever.
I love the thought of a spiral bound, but this one is quite large. Perhaps something somewhat smaller? I would love a little more space at the end of every month to put notes, lists, etc. I always have them.
Having the large “2018” on the front is great – To me, it isn’t as important how “beautiful” it is on the outside, but rather that you can identify it in a pinch. A planner is there to help keep your life organized, so it should be recognizable, and this one is. Thanks! Looking forward to next years!

I really wanted to love this planner and loved the rose gold and pretty interior but the size was too large to be functional.
I had to buy a second, slimmer planner to jot down information on the go and keep track of deadlines, then had to transfer those details when I got home.
I love the workout space and the meal and water tracking but wish they were smaller to make room for more to do items.
The hourly schedule and habit tracking would be easier to use if they were on the same page as the main day entry, having to flip to a different page makes those great features difficult to fully utilize.
As far as physical form goes, I would prefer something closer to 1/2 in. thick, maximum, and perhaps with cased-in wire or lay-flat, section-sewn binding for a sleeker profile that doesn’t catch on flaps or, eek, dance tights.
Overall it’s a gorgeous planner and there are parts of it I really love, unfortunately, the size of it makes it impractical for me to carry along with my requisite textbooks, notebooks, laptop, food, gym/ballet clothes, and, on some days, ice skates.

I love this planner! The thing I love most is that the week starts on Sunday. Please please please don’t change that! It would be nice if the planner was thinner. I wouldn’t mind it being bigger (in terms of height) if it was thinner. The large spirals make it very difficult to write.
Also, some sort of book mark. I liked the idea of having the habit tracker on a bookmark. I don’t use the habit tracker much because it’s not top of mind when looking at the days.
Haven’t bought a planner since I was in college, and I love this one! Thank you!

I love the Rose gold color, I been using every day the planer but I have to say I don’t like that is to heavy to bring it with me every day, also I want that you give more options for the instructors who work as Fitness instructor and teach many classes every week, we need space to keep track our classes, invoices, money, expenses and I think maybe less of the “monthly mantra”, boxes and all of them the keep repeating every week, also please have a year calendar , we need it , please have in mind that some popsters are older and need to be more business related then academic, I know you can not satisfy everybody but maybe you can create two separate planers one for the poster who we are Mom, wife, sister, friends, work full time or part time and we are over 30 and a planer for the youngsters who need for school or college. and the rest everything is perfect, thanks for considering our opinion!!!!

I love bullet/art journals but I am wayyy too busy to set up every month/week so I decided to try out this planner and I’m really glad I did.
I love:
- grocery list and placement of that grocery list
- inspirational quotes every week
- water/meal/workout/sleep tracker
- week at a glance AND more in depth

I’d like to see some changes in:
- habit tracker: the placement makes it really hard to use, after making several of my own planners I find it’s usually better to have the habit tracker either at the beginning of the month or to even do a weekly habit tracker (or with your resources you could make a page that snapped in for a habit tracker so it’s always where you need it to be)
-doodle space: seemed like wasted space to me, I used it for more to-do most of the time – would be a great place to put a weekly habit tracker
- the spiral is way too big, it gets in the way when trying to write – the whole planner could do with being a little smaller but I don’t mind having a bigger planner as long as I can write in it without being obstructed by it’s size
- I agree with people saying that there should be more space for the to-do list and maybe cut down on how big the daily workout box is or make the meal planning a bit smaller

I always forget about the habit tracker because it’s in the back, so incorporating that somewhere else maybe add it to the individual days?? I like the idea of having a notes page to write things down (recipes or ideas) I would LOVEEE a little book mark that kinda clips in on the spirals I use the strap but it rips the pages sometimes

I love the food tracking, could do without the water and sleep since i use an app for both, but the food part is a reminder for me to track caloric intake at the end of the day. I love the breakdown from morning-midnight for every hour on the hour, keep that, keep the to do list every week, but maybe add the habit tracker every week/day too, it was hard to remember to look at the end of the month for the habit tracker list. I like the doodle space, todays workout section, and the little sayings. I like this weeks goal, dont forget, & random thought section, but self compliment is just as important. I like the long list of groceries on the side, and the fact that there is the body focus at the top of every day. This is my first planner from you and I love most of it, my only complaint being that i forget the habit tracker is in the back. I also really love the monthly recaps at the end of the month & the cute designs! I have no doubt we’ll love whatever prototype you come up with

This was my first fit planner and I am totally obsessed.

LOVED:
- colors and overall design
- water tracker
- meal tracker layout was great. makes it easy for me to look back, but also has enough room to fit everything
- daily workout space was large enough for me to fit everything in
- sleep tracker – i love being able to look back and see why i’m tired (especially when i can see that it’s not due to lack of sleep but instead nutrition, stress or dehydration)
- daily to do list made it easy/manageable to lay out smaller daily goals
- habit tracker. i love that there are so many! it inspired me to set extra goals/habits for each month :)

DIDN’T NEED:
- weekly hourly breakdowns – i use my phone calendar for stuff like this and it changes around constantly. it’s also a pain to flip pages back and forth. because i never use the week-at-a-glance pages, the boxes at the bottom get forgotten too
- grocery list – the planner is big enough that i don’t carry it around with me, so the grocery list doesn’t end up getting used
- doodle space often goes unused since i’m not much of a doodler

WISH IT HAD:
- a spot for weight and measurements each month. i’d love to have this built in instead of having to take up space in the monthly recap by writing it in myself
- more space for monthly goals

I wish the 2018 planner had the spot for the beginning of the year photo and end of the year photo. Please put that in the 2019 planner! It was such motivation knowing a photo would be posted in the planner.

I’m not a fan of the hourly week break down. I agree with others that it’s a pain to flip back and forth. We are 2 months into the year and I’m not utilizing those pages.

I love the water tracker, the monthly, hourly, and weekly spreads, the to-do section, and the folders were wonderful! However, for students, it’d be super helpful to have a to-do section with mini sections in it where we can write each class we have and the homework for it so we don’t forget about a class. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunities to speak up about what we want! I really appreciate it! Thank you!

I don’t have the 2018 planner but I do have the 17/18 Focus Journal which I love and use every single day. I tend not to use the hourly section as much but everything else is daily.
I also used to have the 12 week fitness journal Casey used to sell and I can’t find anything else like that. Would there be a way to create more of a hybrid between the size and fitness focus of the 12 week journal and the great daily life/ planning aspects of the newer ones?

I like the grocery list idea. I would prefer more room for a to do list and less for workouts/meals. I also really liked the habit tracker, I’ve printed one out, but without it in front of me I can’t seem to stay on it.

2018 is by far the best planner yet! It’s beautiful, and has all of the space I need to write my daily wrap-up. I have to say, the doodle space is a waste for me – that space could be better used with a quick week-at-a-glance or something. I love the monthly wrap-ups! I do think the spiral is too large – it gets in the way when I’m writing, so if the planner’s spiral could be smaller that would be great. Overall, beautiful product!

I absolutely love the design (especially the sparkly band and shiny print) however like my 2017 planner the foil on the front rubbed off with in a 2 months of easy use. It may be betterif there was some sort of thin plastic film covering the font or a more durable glitter design?

I also love the new week at a glance as I can really time out my hectic schedule but always struggle to try and find the page. That’s where a bookmark or something similar may be useful.

Although I haven’t really utilised the habit tracker as much as I would like, I love the idea and will definitely be using it next month to reach my goals!

I LOVE this journal!! I use it every day, my only concern is that it’s quite large to take with you and fit in your backpack. I love the to do list, the space for workouts and foods, and the monthly summaries at the end. However, I wish there was a little space to write freely, or to write your mood down so I can keep my thoughts in there as well as my plans. Also a ribbon to keep your page would be awesome!

LOVES:
Water Tracker, Sleep tracker, Meal Boxes, To-do List, Work out Box, Reflection, Habit Tracker (It allowed me to check off every time I had coffee versus tea—to me that was so fun and helpful), Grocery List, as well as the encouraging cute notes per week!

NOT-so loves:
I’m not much of a goal setter person—I’m more of a “just do” or bullet point/check off list kinda gal, so I wish the checklist was longer. Also, it actually kind of got a bit cumbersome that I had to keep flipping or finding the “time-planning of the week” page especially if I was using the grocery list—- when I had my list of to-dos and my daily stats on the other pages. I feel like there was too much flip here, than flip there. I found I just all together stopped using the time-slot page, using mostly the calendar and the daily pages the most.

Maybe a pull-out sheet that you can detach that has the grocery list / to-do list or a flip out page so it could coordinate with THAT day you’re looking at? :)

I forgot this in my last post, but I LOVVVEEE the grocery list!! I usually order my groceries online and it’s super easy to have the grocery list in my agenda!

I love the color theme and the check list at the back of the each month to keep me on top of things I want to accomplish for that month. The agenda is on the heavier side which is a negative to me. I feel like I don’t use the time slot for the week, I like to put everything that I have to do for the day in one area and not have to flip back and forth on different pages to see what I have to do. Also, I love the pocket In the back.. one more in the front wouldn’t hurt ? I use agendas all the time and I feel like I’m always buying new ones cause they are adding new stuff that I can use, but I like how this agenda ties in my habits, my daily tasks, my sleep, water, and my workout.

I wish the habit tracker was at the front and it had a book or show list

This is my first planner and overall I really love it and have found it helping me stay on track with my goals.
Love:
Year goal setting – good opportunity to think about what you want out of your year
Habit Tracker – bullet journal inspired and concise way to keep all in one spot
Monthly goals / aspirations – motivation + goals change and it is good to re-evaluate each month and have a spot to note that
To-Do Lists – great daily spot to track important items and check off
Layout overall – the monthly tabs, different colours, and overall layout are so functional and also cute!

Change:
More space for workouts – multiple places to track to-dos / events (monthly calendar, week snapshot, and daily lists) but places for workouts are so small.
More space for food tracking – similar to the work-out notes above – cut down some repeated info and more room for food tracking (meals, points, calories, etc.)
Measurements / Tracking spot – a dedicated place to track measurements, weight, photos, progress

Thanks for being open to suggestions and already looking forward to my next planner!

I loved the colors and overall look of the planner. I ended up giving it away to a friend because it was too small to write in. Please enlarge everything so it’s easier to write in. Thanks!
