🟥⬛️ ARE YOUR FITNESS GOALS S.M.A.R.T?
Starting a journey towards a new goal isn’t always easy. It takes planning, it takes hard work and dedication and it takes a desire to want to reach your destination!
We set ourselves goals to achieve them; whether it’s something we’d like to better about ourselves, something we would like to improve on, or something we want to change in our lives or in our person....and we know it won’t be easy, that’s why we set it as a goal!
So how do we make sure we don’t fall at the first hurdle? How do we ensure that we have the highest chance of success!
By creating a ‘SMART’ plan, you are more likely to achieve your goals and less likely to deviate or fail in your aims!
As Personal trainers, we hear a range of goals our clients want to achieve, and these are the most common;
> More toned
> More muscular
> Better cardio fitness
> More flexible
> Lose weight
> Drop body fat
Every person has different goals, and most are unsure how to implement a plan to help achieve them.
So, to reach your goals, we advise that you start by taking just a few minutes to sit down, put pen to paper and write down what is important to you in your life and the what you want to achieve and why.
Once you have done this, you can use a few ways to start your journey to reaching your targets.
The SMART model is one of our favourites.
Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timely.
Start by writing your goals in as much detail as possible. By having a target to aim for and a plan on how to achieve it, your more likely to go the distance!
Track your progress, keep a diary of your achievements and details of each step you take so you can measure your progression
Make sure the goal you have set yourself is actually achievable for you. Don’t set a goal to loose 3 stone in 2 weeks; it simply isn’t going to happen and you will feel like you’ve failed before you’ve even started!
Is your goal relevant to you? Are you aiming to be fitter because you’re following the example of someone else or is it because you’re doing it for yourself! Make sure the reasons for wanting to achieve a goal is because your heart, soul and mind are totally dedicated to the cause!
By setting a timescale, creates an urgency to dedicate yourself totally to the goal, be honest with yourself and think can I truly achieve this in the time I have set myself. Similarly, ensure your timescale isn’t too long, because this in turn will slow your progress as there’s no urgency to keep focused!
So to sum up one approach to keeping your life on track is about setting well-formed goals that are meaningful, and the second is planning how to execute them and holding yourself accountable. It’s that simple!
