Developing a Fitness Plan for Success

Have you hit the mid-summer struggles?
Don’t worry- getting back on track is as simple as 1-2-3!

The key to success is setting yourself up to win and taking the consistent action to follow through on your plan. Making one positive step forward every day will have a stronger impact than a couple big steps taken every once in a while.

Step 1: Set Goals

  • Outcome- what outcome do you want to see?
  • Action- what consistent action will you need to follow to achieve the outcome?
  • Feeling- what feeling do you want to receive when you achieve your action and outcome goals?

Step Two: Select Activities

  • Cardio– improves health and functionality of the heart & lungs, increases calorie expenditure while reducing risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Strength– increases muscle mass, decreases risk of injury and helps maintain & improve bone density
  • Stability/Flexibility- increases muscle and joint mobility, improves balance and reduces risk of muscle imbalance related injuries

Step Three: Reward System

  • Reward after every achieved workout
  • Reward after every achieved outcome
  • Reward after every achieved feeling

Goal setting takes intentional time and effort to work thru the process but if you take the time to create a vision for what you want, an action plan on how to achieve your vision and a reward system to keep you on track, you will have taken the first solid step toward better fitness and health.
