In addition to thinking about those habits to track in the new year, it's time to start thinking about health goals too! If you're looking for a good way to keep yourself accountable with fitness goals, I've got the printable for you.
This free printable workout calendar has been the perfect solution to planning out my weekly workout schedule. It's so easy to glance at this calendar on the way out the door and cross off your workout once you get home.
Having it displayed in the house is so motivating. That's why I decided to use a printable vs. keeping this digital. I love that I have this for easy reference of past weeks.
This fitness calendar could work for any exercise program. It's nice to have a variety of exercises in your week. This might be your key to organizing that balance between cardio & strength training.
It's also an amazing tool for accountability and motivation. Nothing like staring down your progress each time you open the fridge! 🙂 Give it a try - you'll be shocked how much more consistency you'll have in your workout routine.
What should I put on my workout schedule?
I plan my workouts a week at a time. This allows me to use how I feel from the previous week (both mentally and physically) to gauge the next week's workouts. On either Saturday or Sunday, I sit down with my exercise planner to make a rough plan for the upcoming week.
I like to map out each day of the week, whether I'm planning on exercising or not. I try to aim for 2-3 days of cardio and 2-3 strength training days per week, with at least 1 (preferably 2) rest days. Your body needs rest too...don't skip those!
Try writing each type of workout with a different color pen (these are the pens that I use and love for that). You can see in the picture above that I use purple for strength training, green for cardio, & blue for rest or low intensity days. If you're a visual person, this will help you make sure your days are balanced.
If you're into more details, you can put the following items on your calendar...
- Workout duration
- Target muscle group
- Type of cardio
- Equipment needed
- Where to find workout (app, video, website, etc.)
As you finish your workouts, cross off that day. This is also a great chance to make notes about your workout to remember for later (exertion, did you enjoy it or not, what to change in future workouts, etc.).

I recommend printing this in full-color on white 8.5x11" standard paper. An at-home printer should work with no quality issues! This is an updated version of the printer I've used and loved for years.
If you need a smaller version of this printable, you can use the "scale" feature in the print window to make it smaller or larger.
