Goal Setting

In order to achieve, you need to have a goal. This is true of all works of life whether it be in your business life, your personal life or your gym life. Something I see go wrong far too often in peoples goals is the fact that they are way to out there. By this I mean people try and change every single thing and go all out 100% and after 2 weeks it stops and old habits creep back. A classic example of this is New Year’s Resolutions. People will think, “Right new year new me”. Now there is nothing specifically wrong with this but if you’re smoking 20 a day, eat chocolate all the time, don’t do any exercise and live off pot noodles then it’s very unlikely you’re going to be able to stop all of these habits and develop super healthy fantastic new ones all in the space of a month. My advice is to set achievable goals in the short term e.g. 4-6 weeks. This goal can be in accordance with a long term goal that may span over years or even a lifetime goal! Setting this short term goal will be a lot less overwhelming, and be a lot more achievable, and when you do achieve that goal you feel great about it! The psychological side of gym life is HUGE and it’s very easy to become unmotivated and feel like you’re never going to reach your goal if it is so looming. Continue reading Goal Setting
