Tips for Reaching Your Fitness Goals

Whether you’re a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, a fitness buff or a newbie getting their fitness feet wet – setting realistic goals for better health, weight loss or even muscle building is the most important step to making any lasting lifestyle change. Knowing where want to go is imperative to getting there. You can then set your compass and map out the road to get to where you want to be. With fitness and weight loss, having no real sense of how to lose those extra 25 pounds or how to gain the endurance and skill needed for boosted athletic performance often ends up in failure. Here are our tips for setting fitness goals that can actually be reached:

  • Make it specific – Stating that you want to lose weight or get healthier or stronger is far too vague of a target. Who’s to say when and if you actually ever accomplish anything? Set your goal with an actual mark and date of accomplishment. For example – “I will lose 25 pounds by the end of the year”. Or, “I will drop my blood pressure by 12 points within 6 months”.
  • Make yourself accountable – By sharing your goals with someone you trust to support you, your accomplishments become more than just a dream or a wish. Join a weight loss center if you know you’ll need that extra set of eyes set on that shared goal. Sign up for Crossfit and MMA classes where your attendance and performance standards help keep you on track.
  • Make it realistic – That 25 pounds that you are determined to melt away is not going to do so in a month. Those 10 pounds of healthy muscle are not going to suddenly appear after a few workouts. Be realistic with your time schedule and avoid becoming discouraged, causing you to quit before ever seeing the finish line.
