6 Secrets to Fitness Success
Fitness Success

  1. Set Goals
    If you want to succeed with your fitness you need good goals.

    Good goals are SMART. Smart goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timed.

    Without well thought out goals, you are unlikely to achieve them. 

    The more specific you can be with your goal, the better. You can create several goals around your fitness and lifestyle.

    An example of an effective goal: “To lose 3 stone of weight before November 2013 by training 3-4 times a week for one hour each time at the gym”

    An example of an ineffective goal: “To lose weight”

    “Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.” Fitzhugh Dobson
