We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new beginning, and we choose particular resolutions. Then we abandon them in just a few weeks. Why does this take place?

1. Set Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict resolve to do or not do an action. Consequently, they’re exact and may be daunting.

Goals are a target of your ambition, an ambition or a wanted effect. They appear less dreadful—and more doable.

Imagine you come into this year with the mind-set of setting attainable goals, in place of setting unattainable resolutions? Rethinking your thinking process and being more forgiving to yourself is a start toward development.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year might involve:

  • Professional—receiving a promotion at your job.
  • Health—beginning a strength training schedule.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

Now that you’ve set your goals, how do you remain committed to achieving them?

SMART goals motivate you to achieve targets and acknowledge accomplishments during the process.

How Do You Write a SMART Goal?

SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They are distinct but not overwhelming.

Personal SMART goals could involve:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to bed every night this week.
  2. Consume greens at each meal this week.
  3. Take a walk after dinner daily this week.

Making SMART goals will stop you from being overwhelmed by what you want to do.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Remember to reveal your goals to someone! Having an accountability partner can aid you in keeping on track during the process.
