We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new beginning, and we choose individual resolutions. Then we quit in a month. Why does this occur?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict plan to do or not do something. As a result, they’re exact and may be daunting.

Goals are a target of your effort, an ambition or a wanted result. They appear less formidable—and more achieveable.

Imagine you come into the new year with the mind-set of creating attainable goals, in place of making formidable resolutions? Reevaluating your thinking process and being nicer to yourself is the first move toward improvement.

2. Choose SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for 2020 may include:

  • Professional—getting a new title at work.
  • Health—having a strength training workout.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

Now that you’ve set your goals, how do you remain dedicated to reaching them?

SMART goals drive you to achieve targets and celebrate success during your journey.

How Do You Set a SMART Goal?

SMART means specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They’re clear but not intimidating.

Your SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to sleep nightly this week.
  2. Have vegetables at every meal this week.
  3. Walk after dinner each day this week.

Creating SMART goals will stop you from becoming overpowered by what you want to do.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Be sure to share your goals with someone! Using an accountability partner can aid you in remaining on track during the process.
