Have you set any fitness goals for 2017? Do you want to achieve your fitness goals for this summer? Or would you like to change your lifestyle? Whatever you may be looking to achieve from your fitness, PGPT and one of our excellent trainers in London can help you.
1. Know Exactly What Your Goals Are
People who achieve their fitness goals know exactly what these goals are. Whether it is weight loss, or running a marathon, knowing exactly what you want to achieve can really help push you towards achieving all your fitness goals.
2. Know Why You Want to Achieve These Goals
It really isn’t enough just to know what you want to achieve; you also need to know why you want to achieve your fitness goals. Knowing the specific reason for wanting to achieve your goals, whatever that may be, will help you to keep your eyes on the prize so that you can achieve your fitness goals.
3. Be Realistic
If you are determined to achieve your fitness goals, it is important that you are realistic. With the help of one of our trainers in London, you can set realistic goals to achieve – both long and short term goals.
Take a look at our guide to SMART Goal Setting.
Having a sense of accountability can put on the level of pressure you need to push you to work on your fitness. Whether this is by tracking your progress on social media, or have a friend or personal trainer to work out with, having a sense of accountability will help you to achieve your fitness goals.
5. Take Action
Simply setting goals and creating a plan is not good enough. If you truly want to achieve all your goals, you need to take action and actually do what you have set out to do. This means that you have to get up and work out, you have to improve your diet and work, work, work.
6. Consider Your Goals When You Make Day-to-Day Decisions
In order to effectively and efficiently achieve your fitness goals, you need to incorporate and consider these goals when making day-to-day decisions. Every little thing that you do each day will have an impact on your goals. Simple little things such as taking the stairs instead of the lift and walking to the shop rather than driving will make a huge difference to your fitness.
7. Be Consistent
You are never going to effectively achieve your fitness goals if you give up at the first hurdle, or binge on bad food at the weekend. If you really want to achieve your fitness goals, you need to create a schedule and stick to it. Personal Trainers in London from PGPT can help set out a realistic schedule to help you stick with your fitness for the long run.
8. Don’t Focus on Perfection
It is important that you don’t stress out about being perfect. Achieving your goals is all about progress and improvement. You need to be patient and remember that with time, you will improve and start to notice real results.
9. Monitor Your Progress
Keeping track of your progress will ensure the success of your fitness. Monitor your progress and remind yourself of everything that you have achieved so far. By setting smaller, short term goals, you will be able to clearly identify your progress which will keep you motivated towards your end goal.
10. Believe in Yourself
Believing in yourself and crushing any self doubt is key in achieving any fitness goal. Even on the hardest of days, it is important that you believe in yourself. A personal trainer can help to keep your motivation up and they will remind you of all that you have achieved already.
