How Do I SELECT A Fitness Goal That’s Right For Me?

Q: I would feel more motivated to exercise easily set a particular goal. How do you figure out the right one for me? Though it’s easy to say that you’re heading to run a 5K 90 days from now or lose 10 pounds prior to the vacations, it’s important to essentially think about which end goal is doable for you both physically and mentally. After all, there’s a good chance you’ll lose vapor if you’re aiming for something unrealistic, which can leave you feeling discouraged and lured to reject your exercise routine completely.

Specific. Saying you’re heading to “workout more” or “lose weight” is too general. Instead, consider questions that can help point you toward a clear, definitive goal. What want one to improve about your fitness? What kinds of exercise do you prefer doing the most? What goals are you currently able to reach when doing those activities?

What would be the next degree of success for those activities? How could you classify your fitness level: beginner, advanced, or immediate? Do you prefer outdoor or in house activities? So, if you’ve decided to begin walking more often with a specific goal of losing two inches from your waist at the end of 90 days, invest in measuring your waistline weekly to track your progress.

Or if you’re looking to add a quarter-mile to your run, each week tag down your distance. Keep in mind, however, that approach is not for everyone-if meeting certain measurements is causing you stress, you may want to just track your progress based about how you feel. Attainable. Setting big goals in life (open up a small business, travel abroad, buy a house) is important, but recognizing them results in first achieving some smaller goals.

  • Eat at least 7 portions of fruits and vegetables per day

The same goes for fitness: You might dream about completing a marathon, but you have to succeed at the shorter distances to be able to prepare for the big challenge. Relevant. Your fitness goal should be something that pertains to your requirements and feels important for you. If you have less time to work through, maybe you want to try to burn more calorie consumption in a shorter time frame. If you want to have the ability to perform daily tasks with more ease, your goal may be to fit in more functional weight training.

Whatever the case, concentrate on the best course of action for your system, your schedule, your lifestyle, and your interests. Choose exercises and training programs that match your abilities and are tailored to helping you achieve your desired end result. The more of the fit they may be for you all around, the much more likely you are to enjoy the journey and stick with it.

Time-bound. Once you’ve chosen a specific goal that feels appropriate and realistic, and you’ve come up with an idea to measure your progress, set a time frame that you should achieve it. This can help keep you accountable and less inclined to fall off track. While you might like to drop 20 pounds before a big event that’s just one month away or run a big race two weeks from now, you need to consider the smartest, healthiest way to succeed. Speak with a doctor, fitness expert and/or other health or fitness professional to help you think of a fair timeline for your goal.
