Goal setting


Tips for training
1. Write down your goals
If you don’t right down your goal they are still dreams and wishes. Put it on paper and develop a plan to reach that goal. If you don’t have any direction then you don’t have a plan

2. Make sure your goals are specific and obtainable.
Goals like taking over the world or get down to 1% body fat  are not obtainable goals( well maybe taking over the world). A good example is lose 20lbs in 10 weeks. Is a good goal. It gives your a specific goal and a timeline to accomplish the goal.

4. One Goal at a time
I have a lot of clients that have list of  goals and they try to achieve all of them at once and end up failing. Order your goals by priority and then go down the list. If your goal is fat loss go for Fat loss. If you want to build strength then build strength. Remember a jack of all trades is a master of none.

3. Schedule in assessments
Put in reassessments into your program. This will be crucial to make sure that the program is putting you on pace to reach your goal.   Reevaluating your program can help you find flaws that could potentially keep your from getting to where you want to be.

4. Have fun 
Give your program some flexibility( not a lot though) because life will get in the way. Which you can’t plan for so stick to your plan but be able to make adjustments when “life” come at you.

  1. Writing down your goals is so important. Something I learned a loooong time ago. But reassessing and re-wrting is where I always fall short.

    Nice heads up – thanks…now where is that list of mine?
