As you set out on your journey to become the best version of yourself through exercise and fitness training, it will be essential to set goals. As you search for a personal trainer that will help you attain your goals, you’ll want to come into the relationship with some goals already in mind, but understand that your personal trainer is going to adjust them a bit. Here are some tips to keep in mind when setting your weight loss plan and fitness goals.
Goal Setting Is Your First Step
- Ask yourself where you want to be in one month, three months, six months, a year? Where do you see yourself, in fitness terms?
- Be realistic – Oftentimes, clients come in and tell us that they want to lose 40 pounds in one month. Not only is that not realistic, but it’s unhealthy to lose weight at that rate.
- Your personal trainer will assess your current body weight and fat, as well as your current exercise performance ability. Knowing where you currently stand will help to make your fitness plan of attack.
- Are You Ready To Commit? – Many clients come in with a mind set to lose weight and inches in a matter of weeks, and when it doesn’t happen for them, they tend to bow out of their personal training. Ask yourself if you’re willing to fail before you succeed. Your personal trainer will give you all the tools to find success in your goals, but you have to amp up your attitude and effort with every single session.
Getting in shape and losing weight is difficult, and it should be. But the level of difficulty in a task should never deter you from achieving your goal. Face your adversity in every exercise that comes your way, and you’ll begin to see results. Once you’ve reached the goals you and your personal trainer set, you’ll not be in the best shape of your life, but you’ll be proud of your efforts.
