There’s a fantastic video to watch below illustrating the process of making small changes to reach a fitness goal.
Note: This process can be applied to other goals too!
- First identify where you are (and accept it). This is your benchmark.
- Think about what you like/dislike about being where you are and why you want to change it. This is very important!
- Decide where you want to be. This is your ultimate fitness goal. Make it realistic and achievable.
- Think about what small steps you can take to start moving yourself towards that fitness goal. These are ‘mini goals’.
- As hard as it may be, start telling yourself “I can”.
- Start taking small steps towards your goal – you’re now making changes!
- Accept that there will be setbacks and persevere. Change takes time.
- Take the time to look back on the progress you’ve made regularly. You’ll soon see how far you’ve come!
Why not try adopting this mindset before your next fitness session?
