How to succeed with your training goals.

Posted on 29. Mar, 2011 by in Blog, Motivation

What is your goal? What?? You don’t have one? Really…..Really?

Too many times people are training, or working out for some mysterious reason, it is mysterious because even they don’t know what it really is. I hear the same old ‘reasons’ however, “I want to lose weight.” “I am trying to get back into my old jeans.” “I want to get stronger.” Whatever it is, these are not goals. These are statements, and as long as they exist as statements only, they don’t have legs and you won’t get very far. Goals have meat, goals have substance, goals have meaning…a story behind them. They are real, and they can be measured. Just stating something might be a start, but it usually isn’t enough.

In most cases, people think their failure in fitness is about the program they are doing, or the diet they are attempting to do. While these things can be part of the problem, it usually comes down to motivation and motivation comes from having a real plan, which comes ultimately from having a real goal.

What is your end result?

What is the reason, or purpose behind this result?

Exactly how are you going to get that result?

When you can answer these basic three questions, you have some substance and something real. When you have that, you will be about 1000 times more likely to reach that goal.

Stop making statements and start forming your end result or goal. Write it down, add to it, make sure you are measuring your progress. Always have a purpose behind it…a “Why” and always have a detailed plan.

Once you do that, you are on your way. If you don’t do that, you are pretending and that is a waste of everyone’s time.
