ExerciseLifestyleNutrition Learn Your True Fitness Goal

A list of questions that will help you define your true fitness goal!

As much energy and thought you give your goal will be similar to the amount of effort you are willing to give to make a change for it.

If your goal took 17 seconds to think of and feel it really isn’t something you developed enough of an emotional connection to that you will be able to grind through the hard times to actually achieve it. But if it’s something you have thought of constantly and it ties to the bigger picture of the person you see yourself becoming then your devotion and discipline will follow.

I tell all my clients to get real with what you want and what you are willing to give to achieve it.

Frame your WHY

Here are a list of questions that can help you frame your “why” so that your goals and effort have a solid foundation to build on.

  • Why do you want to work out?
  • Why is that important?
  • And why now?
  • Why didn’t it work when you tried before?
  • What’s different now?
  • What will change when you achieve that goal?
  • Why is that important?
  • What happens if you don’t get in shape?

Make your Fitness Goal S.M.A.R.T.!

Take your goal and break it up in each of these categories. Example: I want to lose 15 lbs  in 3 months by exercising 4-5 times a week and eating nutritious foods while finding new recipes.

  • Specific (simple, sensible, significant)
  • Measurable (meaningful, motivating)
  • Achievable (Make sure what you want is attainable)
  • Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based)
  • Time-bound (give yourself a set time to achieve the goal so you can keep yourself accountable)

What are 3 smaller sub-goals to achieve as you progress to your ultimate goal? Example: I will lose 5 lbs a month while increasing protein intake.

Based on the goal you have written down what is an appropriate calorie range to help you achieve this goal? (Calorie Deficit for weight loss, Calorie Maintenance, Calorie Surplus)

What do you believe will hold you back from achieving this goal? Be very specific and realistic.

What are some things you excel at? (Hobbies, Skills, Relationships, Hidden Talent) List at least 4.

What or who is in your support system? (A fitness Community, Family/Friends, Significant other?)
