How do you measure progress?
Let's talk Goal Setting - not to be confused with those New Years Resolutions we've probably forgotten about by now - we mean goals that are SMART:
Specific - clear cut, defined
Measurable - track your progress, have a starting point
Attainable - what tools do you need to help you reach your goal
Realistic - consistent, gradual progress
Time-Focused - the 'when am I aiming to achieve this'
Another important and probably forgotten about part of setting a goal is the 'why'. This can be a massive motivational factor in attaining your goals.
Grab a pen and paper, and really think about it. Ask yourself a few questions, using the acronym above, and jot down as much as possible. Then you can condense this into a SMART goal.
Our members will now be able to jot their goals down on our BRAND NEW GOAL SETTING BOARD. Please excuse the bubble writing attempt....
You can put as much or as little detail as you like on it, you don't even have to put your name under it, but the aim is, that every time you step into the gym, you see your goal on the board and it motivates you to work towards it.
Coaches Joe and Caoimhe have already got theirs on it so work away next time you're in class!
Goal setting = Motivation = progress
