iTrainedToday is the simplest way to keep track of your training. In a world where tools, uis, gadgets and data becomes increasingly complex, there is a definite need for simplicity. And in training, this is certainly the case. Too many athletes (even at elite level) are reverting back to Excel spreadsheets and hand-written logs because the tools supplied by the manufacturers are way too complex and as a result unfriendly.
iTrainedToday provides a simple one-page dashboard to do 80% of the job- record training sessions. In this one-page view you can also get a quick snapshot of your current training volume and recent sessions- everything you need to keep the training going- without requiring massive amounts of personalization and configuration.
