Setting Goals


With new year’s right around the corner most people are reflecting on this past year and looking ahead to the new upcoming year. Not everyone sets new years resolutions for themselves because of previous year failures in being able to follow through and complete their resolution. However, if you are ‘smart’ in setting goals you should be able to achieve them. An easy acronym to help with your goal setting is S.M.A.R.T. Be Specific with your goal; too many times goals are too vague and allow for failure. If you state that you are going to work out 3 times a week state exactly what days of the week those will be. Make your goals Measurable.

For example if you are wanting to increase strength conclude that you will complete specifically ‘x’ amount of push-ups. Set a goal that is feasibly attainable. If you are only able to do 15 sit-ups in a minute don’t set a goal that you’ll be able to do 60 in one minute in only a few short weeks of working out. When you are succeeding in making progress toward your goal Reward yourself or let someone else reward you. Lastly set a Time frame. Setting a deadline will give you that extra motivation to work hard during the specific time frame.

Simple exercise that you can set goals for would be performing ’x’ amount of push-ups, holding a plank for ’x’ seconds, performing ’x’ sit-ups, and running a mile in ’x’ time. There is no need to wait until January 1st though, if you've already had the ambition to make changes in your health and fitness go ahead and start today. Evaluate your fitness and nutrition needs and make goals for yourself or meet with a personal trainer to help set your S.M.A.R.T goals. Once your goals have been set write them down and keep them in a visible area for you to see them on a daily basis. Get those goals set and work hard to achieve them!
