Editor’s Pick: Daniel Fonyo


Summer has ended, and it’s time to get back into the swing of things. Luckily creators on Airtable have created bases to help you become your best self. For August’s monthly metrics, we are highlighting bases that make organizing your life easy. This month’s editor pick is Daniel Fonyo and his base, Athletes Journal. 

Daniel Fonyo is a new creator but he has already amazed us. Daniel is an athlete himself and wanted to create a way to combine software with training to help athlete’s get the most of their workouts and practices. Many pro athletes have stated that journaling improves their game so Daniel is making it easier so every athlete can train like a pro. He’s currently working on an app called the endurance journal which helps you push yourself and set goals. You can learn more about Daniel’s project here.

Athletes Journal- Be Better Than Yesterday
This base is every athlete’s best friend. It tracks everything from injuries to goals. The idea is to be able to identify patterns in training and life. It also comes with features like automatic strava integration and guided journaling prompts. The base is organized into 7 tables with mental sections like journaling and physical sections like a workout calendar. This base shows how Airtable can be used not just for businesses but for every day tasks like journaling. With all this base’s cool details, it’s no surprise that people are using it. In August, it was #3 in likes and had 6 copies which made it #9 in base copies.
