We’ve all been there. It’s a new start, and we set particular resolutions. Then we abandon them in a month. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a firm intention to do or not do an action. Consequently, they’re exact and can be discouraging.

Goals are the intention of your ambition, an aim or a desired effect. They appear less dreadful—and more feasible.

What if you approach this year with the outlook of making reachable goals, rather than choosing unattainable resolutions? Reassessing your thought process and being more forgiving to yourself is the first move toward growth.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for 2020 might include:

  • Professional—receiving a new title in your career.
  • Health—starting a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading extra books.

Now that you’ve set your goals, how do you keep determined to accomplishing them?

SMART goals encourage you to reach objectives and recognize achievements along the way.

How Do You Choose a SMART Goal?

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

Your SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to sleep nightly this week.
  2. Have greens at all meals this week.
  3. Take a walk after your evening meal daily this week.

Creating SMART goals will help you avoid becoming overpowered by what you want to achieve.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Family Member

Remember to tell someone about your goals! Keeping an accountability partner can help you in remaining motivated during the process.
