Staying Motivated& Setting New Goals Once You’ve Reached Your Original!

The time has come and you’ve done it! You’ve finally reached that weight loss / fitness goal that you’ve set for yourself and are thinking, “Now what? What do I do now?” This is great question and the answer is simple. Set a new goal and the reason for this is there is no better way to keep you motivated and on track than with a new challenge, something that’s going to keep driving you to be better.

Now the first thing you need to do when setting a new goal for yourself is make it a S.M.A.R.T goal. What this means is make it Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and within a Time frame. Specific as in I want to be able to do 5 pull-ups unassisted or I want to be able to run / finish a 5K race within having to stop. Measurable by which you are able to track you progress and compare it from week to week. Attainable and Realistic in which it’s something you will be able to complete. Lastly you have to set a time frame on this goal. Now this is where people get into trouble because a lot of times they either don’t give themselves enough time to reach their goal or they give themselves too much time and they can lose focus and motivation. This is something you don’t want and we as trainers don’t want to happen either. We want to be able to keep you excited, motivated, and constantly pushing forward to reach this new goal of yours.

If you have reached this point in your health and fitness, talk to your trainer about some news goals you may have to see how we can get you to reach this new goal. Now if you don’t have any ideas of what your new goal should / could be, here is just a few ideas to choose from: increasing your strength, increasing your endurance, lower your body fat percentage, or my personal favorite, a performance goal, such as a specific time to beat at Trek up the Tower. Again if you can’t think of any new goals to set for yourself, talk with your trainer as we can help figure out a new goal for you.

Don’t limit your challenges, challenge your limits. Never settle, always strive to be better.
