We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new beginning, and we set personal resolutions. Then we give up in just a few weeks. Why does this happen?

1. Set Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict plan to do or not do a behavior. For this reason, they’re exact and might be daunting.

Goals are the intention of your drive, an aim or a favorable reaction. They appear less formidable—and more reachable.

Suppose that you approach the new year with the attitude of creating attainable goals, instead of choosing formidable resolutions? Reassessing your thought process and being more forgiving to yourself is the first step toward development.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year might incorporate:

  • Professional—obtaining a bigger salary at your job.
  • Health—beginning a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

Now that you’ve established your goals, how do you remain determined to accomplishing them?

SMART goals inspire you to meet targets and acknowledge success during your journey.

How Do You Set a SMART Goal?

SMART represents specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They are specific but not intimidating.

Personal SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to bed each night this week.
  2. Eat vegetables at every meal this week.
  3. Walk after supper daily this week.

Making SMART goals will prevent you from being defeated by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Remember to tell someone about your goals! Using an accountability partner can aid you in keeping with your goal during the process.
