Defining Fitness Goals and How a Personal Trainer Can Help

Achieve your fitness goals

Everyone has different fitness goals, ranging from trying to stay healthy to viewing fitness as a lifestyle. Fitness goals are important as they help us to push through temporary discomfort for a better change. However, figuring out how to set achievable fitness objectives can be challenging because if you don’t hit them, you may be discouraged and backslide.

It is important to include fitness as part of your New Year’s resolutions, and see to it that you achieve your goals without fail. However, you may have too much pressure to set New Year’s resolutions that are unsustainable and unrealistic. Due to the rush and lack of proper planning, you fail to achieve them and end up feeling worse than before.

According to the Association of Psychology Newfoundland and Labrador, 80% of people fail at their New Year’s resolutions in the first six weeks of the year. To avoid that detrimental downward spiral altogether, here are some tips to help you define your fitness goals for a positive change:

Focus On One Goal at a Time

Perhaps you want to hit the gym every day, cut out added sugar, and gain muscles. Trying to do all these things at once will make you anxious, which may set you up for failure. Pick one thing that you want to achieve and put all your efforts towards achieving it.

Make It Measurable, Specific, and Time Bound

A measurable and specific goal helps you to track your progress, which makes it easier to achieve. Make sure your fitness goals are attainable and relevant and set a timeframe for accomplishing them.

Have a Support System

Having a strong support system can motivate, encourage, and hold you accountable to your goals. Whenever you need support, you can recruit your partner, a close family member, or a personal trainer.

How a Personal Trainer Can Help

A personal trainer is there to help you attain your fitness goals. A personal trainer will not only help you set attainable goals, but they will keep you on track to hit those objectives. Here are some ways a personal trainer can help you:

– Build muscle
Lose weight
– Get over a fitness plateau
– Provide motivation and accountability
– Reduce your risk of injury
– Increase convenience by working out from home
– Improve your posture and your mobility
