How do you make fitness decisions? Do you really pay attention to your thought process before you decide on something, or do you just go with your gut, so to speak. Here are four simple things to remember BEFORE you make your decision.
In How to Set Goals When You Want to Get Fit – Part I, we only looked at the “what” and the “why” in the goal-setting process. In Part II, we want to take a look at the “how.” We want to set ourselves up for success and how we set goals will help us do just that.
Setting fitness goals is part art and part science. Make them too lofty and you’ll be disappointed. Make them too small and you may never see any progress. There’s far more to it than meets the eye.
If you are working out consistently, you may not be gifted but you are “training.” And you’re most certainly “participating” in an “exercise”. So by definition you… are… an… athlete. And it’s time to start thinking that way!
