The definition of a goal is- what one intends to do or achieve. The hardest part of a fitness program is getting started, and the second is maintaining it. Unfortunately, most people do not have goals when it comes to their health and fitness. You may drive to the gym, but until you walk through the doors you have no clue as to what you are doing that day. This is why millions of people either go through the motions when it comes to their workouts or do not workout at all. Fitness goals should be no different than those you set for your business, your family, or your future.
According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine, research confirms those who are certain about what they want to accomplish are six times more likely to successfully make life changes than those who are less certain. Conversely, those with conflicting goals, or those who are unsure about their goals, are significantly more likely to, experience depression and anxiety, be less happy, have more physical illnesses and doctor visits, and spend less time taking action towards their fitness goals. Does this sound like you? If so, let’s establish your fitness goals. Your goals must be specific, challenging, and measurable.
Believe that you can accomplish the goals you have set. If you truly believe you will be successful, you will work harder, achieve more, be happy, set more goals, and view setbacks as a source of motivation.
Accomplishing your fitness goals can be very powerful, if not life changing. The television reality show, Biggest Loser, is a great example. The people selected for that show were determined and committed to losing weight. Even the ones who have been voted off maintained great discipline and motivation to do the work on their own. Goals can be powerful. Set yourself up for success and establish specific, challenging, and measurable fitness goals.
