finish line

I am sorry to say this but I have some devastating news to deliver. Without fitness goals, your health will suffer.

What do you mean by 'fitness' goal?

Here are some examples of fitness-related goals that I have heard clients mention: squat 300 lbs, rehab an injury, look like a million bucks at my class reunion, complete a marathon, or get fit for my daughter's wedding. The more specific your goal is, the better. It's also good to have a realistic date in mind for achieving that goal.  

Why is it important to have fitness goals?

Because it's rare for people to do things just for the heck of it. Goals give you the gumption to get up at 5am for that intense spin class or avoid getting up for seconds at the buffet line. Having that one goal in your mind will help you make healthy decisions, even when you are tired or worn out. 

What happens once I achieve my fitness goal? 

You create another one! Goals are the fuel behind your success--without them, you just are just meandering around. Stop meandering, set your fitness goal, and GOAL GET 'EM!
