Why Setting Goals is important for Fitness.
Setting goals is very important for many aspects of life, and particularly for training in fitness. Without direction how will you know when you've achieved something?
What Is The SMART Principle?
When deciding your fitness goal or goals make sure it's within the SMART principles. SMART is a mnemonic that if you can remember will help you to stick to those all important goals.
S: Specific, make sure you identify what you goal is and stick to it.
M: Measurable, how are you going to measure your progress?
A: Action, how are you going to go about reaching your goal, what steps are you going to take to get there?
R: Realistic, make sure your goals are realistic; if the goals that you set are too ambitious you're more likely to give up when you aren't seeing fast progress.
T: Time, how long are you giving yourself to achieve your goal? Sticking to these principles will help you along the way when determining your goal.
