Goals for 2024. What are you wanting to do with your body this year? How can OC help you reach your goals for 2024?
Are you tired of setting vague fitness goals that never seem to work out? It’s time to take a smarter approach to your fitness journey. Learn how to set goals for yourself and find success!
Setting SMART fitness goals is not just another trendy fitness tip; it’s a proven method to help you achieve the results you desire.
In this blog post, we’ll show you how to create fitness goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, and realistic, giving you a clear roadmap to success.
Specific goals tailored to individual needs
Many people make the mistake of setting generic goals like “lose weight” or “get in shape.” Without specificity, it’s challenging to know what exactly you’re working toward. At OC we want to meet with all of our members quarterly to ensure we are setting goals that have a measurable result.
Start by identifying what you want to achieve precisely. Instead of “lose weight,” set a goal like “lose 10 pounds in three months” or “run a 5k in under 30 minutes.”
These specific goals help you see progress – and provide context for you and your coaches on the progress being made.
Attendance based goals especially when starting a new fitness program can be beneficial. Such as “attend 15 classes a month” – then break this down into each week. Week 1 attending 3 sessions, Week 2: 4 sessions – and so forth.
Without a way to measure your progress, it’s easy to lose motivation and direction. You need to know if you’re moving closer to your goal.
You need to know if you’re moving closer to your goal. Use tools like fitness apps, body measurements, or workout logs to track your progress. When you see your accomplishments, you’ll stay motivated and focused.
Achievable and realistic targets
Unrealistic goals can lead to frustration and burnout. Setting the bar too high can make you feel like a failure. Make sure your goals are attainable and realistic based on your current fitness level, available time, and resources. Gradual progress is better than striving for immediate, unsustainable changes.
A great way to ensure your goals are realistic is by utilizing the experience and knowledge of the OC coaching staff – we have helped thousands of people reach their goals – lean on us to help you!
Remember to review and adjust your goals regularly
As you achieve your goals, set new ones to keep your fitness journey exciting and challenging. Setting SMART fitness goals is the key to your success. By being specific, measuring your progress, and keeping your targets realistic, you’ll have a clear path to achieving the results you desire.”
Take some time today to revisit your fitness goals. Make them SMART, and you’ll be on your way to a healthier, fitter you in 2024!
