Log Sheet for Personal Fitness Merit Badge

LC is working on his Personal Fitness merit badge. Part of the requirements for this badge include doing some fitness tests periodically and recording a fitness plan over a period of 12 weeks. There are some worksheets available for this on the web, but the ones we looked at didn’t really fit in with the fitness plan which LC and his merit badge counselor agreed to.

So I fired up the spreadsheet program and helped LC with a new worksheet. It is really basic. But the spaces are fairly large. (LC’s printing is not small!) So if you find this helpful, great! But remember, if you don’t find what you are looking for, just look at what is out there, keep the parts you like, throw out the parts you don’t need, and come up with an aid which works for you.

      Those are for logging what they did each day as part of their daily fitness plan.

    Did you have an actual work out or did he just do random things?

    • Scouter Mom April 3, 2014 at 1:23 PM #

      There is no specific program given. The Scout and the merit badge counselor will discuss this when they meet.

    This is perfect. We have been writing it down on scratch pieces of paper and I’ve been meaning to put something together. This will work great and save me the time. Thanks and God Bless.

    I couldn’t pull up the worksheet. Could you post it again?? My son is going to start working on his next week.

    • Scouter Mom May 2, 2015 at 8:23 AM #

      Try again. I fixed the link.

    Hi , My son is starting the personal fitness merit badge and we were looking for an activity log sheet and a bi-weekly test summary sheet ,
    Is that something you could help with .

    Thank you,

    Is exercise required every day or as many times a week as they can? We haven’t seen this explained in what we’ve read about this merit badge.

    • Scouter Mom August 16, 2015 at 8:45 AM #

      Your son needs to discuss that with his merit badge counselor. The counselor should cover his or her expectations before your son starts working on the badge.

  13. Jacob November 22, 2015 at 5:22 PM #

    For all the spaces under Week 1, Week 2, and so on, is each day the same exercises or is each day a new one? Also, are all the weeks identical?


    • Scouter Mom November 22, 2015 at 5:41 PM #

      Speak to your counselor about it. He or she will help you develop an appropriate program.

    THANK YOU FOR THIS!!! It’s wonderful!

    Earning an Eagle Scout rank, and earning merit badges… It’s really easy when you’re 35+ years old. So are we missing the point as parents? When I read comments like “I fired up the spreadsheet program…” Or “where’s the link so I can print this out for my son?” it makes me wonder who is earning the merit badge…who is earning the Eagle?

      That’s ridiculous. Parent involvement is a GOOD thing even in Scouting. In every aspect of life, job and in school collaboration with co-workers, classmates, etc. is not looked down upon. Good job to the mom who is involved with her son and in Scouts!

      • Juliette Doherty July 28, 2018 at 5:38 PM #

        I agree…..My parents helped throughout my life and were the compass to my success. Thank God for parents who care and guide their children.

    Nice work putting this together, Scouter Mom! @Chip, the role of parents/counselors is to facilitate. Giving the boys tools they can use to have a successful experience is an important part of being a counselor. You wouldn’t give a kid 2 sticks and a book on starting a fire and send him out in the woods to figure out how to make a fire. Giving a template to help facilitate a schedule isn’t “earning the Eagle.” Take a breath and let’s remember the purpose of the merit badge. I’m fairly certain the aim of the personal fitness merit badge is not being able to create a spreadsheet.

    Hi. I’m going to take this badge and was wondering a few things. Did your son exercise everyday, or just few times per week? Also did he have a set program to do on those days? If not, could you briefly explain how to do requirement 7. I’m planning on taking this badge this year at summer camp, so I cannot speak to a counselor beforehand and the 12-week program is a prerequisite. Thanks.

    As a scout on my way to eagle, resources such as yours have been an enormous compliment to the productivity I aspire for and I appreciate individuals such as you who go out and share tools such as this, Thank you very much.
