Your Guide To Goal Setting

Every person in life has a unique set of goals, and most people measure their success by their ability to see these goals through to completion.

Until the goal is defined, a person has no destination. What are the fitness and Martial Art goals you’ve set for yourself in 2013?

Goals are the backbone of any successful effort – that includes losing weight and improving your fitness earning your next belt.

I have touched on goal setting in the past and I think it is safe to say that most people know that they have to set goals but that are not quite sure how to start, what to do and what type of goals are needed for success.

Today, I am going to show you how to make the proper goals to help you succeed in 2013.


Goals need to be specific. When you are starting on a fat/weight loss journey or want to earn your next belt, you need a goal that you will commit to. Commit by writing down your goals on paper. Create a strong desire to committing the goal by writing down all the reasons that you want to achieve it – “THE WHY”

It’s probably safe to say that you have a goal to get in shape or more specifically, to improve their body composition, fitness level and overall health. But that’s not specific enough. It can be easy to lose sight of our goals if we have no sense of purpose driving us forward.

Stating that you want to lose weight, get fit and be healthier is one thing, but finding a specific goal (or goals) to shoot for is very important. That is why I recommend always taking that extra moment to ask yourself: “Why am I doing this?” “Why do I want this?” etc.

How do you know where you will end up if you don’t know where you are going and how you will get there? Think about what you want to achieve, how you are going to achieve it, and WHY you want this so badly.

When you hit rough patches along the way, you will refer to your “WHY” to remind you of all the reasons that you have to stay fit and get healthy.

Let’s get working on those goals together. See you in class
