What are Your Fitness Goal(s)?
When you have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish, you will then be able to set smaller, short term fitness goals that are tailored to your fitness needs. These smaller goals will likely be more reachable and more realistic.
Setting realistic fitness goals will be setting you up to succeed. If you put unrealistic time or weight constraints on yourself, however, you are setting yourself up to fail, and you will not likely stay motivated. While it is important to have one big end result in mind, focus on the smaller goals, treating them as part of a journey to your overall wellness and betterment. As you reach each goal, look to a new and more challenging one.
It is important not to overdo it when it comes to a new fitness regime. You should consult a physician before beginning a new exercise program, especially if you are new to exercise or are prone to injury.
As excited as you might be to get started, please make sure that you stay within the boundaries of your Personalized Program and not to do things that your body isn’t prepared for just yet. If you decide to go beyond your workout plan, this will lead to fatigue, discouragement, pain, and possibly injury. Reaching good physical fitness and losing weight take time, so be patient, and you will see results from working out or being coached by Coach Bob Pates!
When setting fitness goals, know your current limitations, and set short-term goals accordingly. Always challenge yourself, but never to the point of injury or frustration. This will cause you to give up on your goal of physical wellness!
Setting smaller, reachable goals, and attaining them, will give you a feeling of accomplishment. Your motivation will be great, and you will be more likely to stick to your program for longer!
