The Come Up: You & Your Fitness Goals

Fitness goals are a must if you’re serious about the journey. Therefore, we’ll be taking you through how you can meet them and set you on your journey to aiming,training and gaining. 

First you want to set your outcome goals, these are the specific targets you want to have met as a result of your fitness journey. Ensure that they’re not restrictive in terms of the time frame allocation and their general expectations as an all consuming fitness goal and regime is one which is likely to feel more like a burden rather than a process of progress. 

It may also help to break down the outcome goal into chronological micro-goals so that the outcome goal appears more achievable and reachable. This may consist of setting a target to attend the gym 4-times a week, say, or lose 1kg over the course of a month. Micro-goals are a great way of making progress and breaking down the bigger picture into smaller and more comprehensive ones - The method can even be applied outside of your fitness goals. 

You also must make sure that you’re doing the basics well if you expect to make any significant progress. This means:

  • Getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night
  • Eating enough and eating proper foods
  • Drinking plenty of water 
  • Stretching and warming up properly before workouts 

Setting attitude goals is also another good way of achieving your fitness goals as your attitude leads your actions and in this case that’s your fitness goals. Examples of attitude goals include going for 2 early morning workouts a week, intermittent fasting every Friday or going for a morning run once a fortnight. Essentially, they are characterised by an unorthodox commitment which you make in order to enhance yourself - Because a positive mind is a positive gain!
