How to set goals for exercise: Three great tips

 Goal setting ensures that the exercise needed to be your best in any of your activities actually happens. It gives you:


  1. Look at your calendar. Schedule 3 exercise sessions every week just as you would any other appointment. This is your commitment to you to help you enjoy activity.

  2. Have a Plan B. Life can get in the way. It happens to all of us. Plan B gives you an option so that the date you originally scheduled is not a “do or not do” situation. It may be an alternate time for your exercise or a commitment to repeat each exercise once or twice if time is limited. Doing something is better than nothing.

  3. Once you have completed your exercise check it off on your calendar so that you get a feeling of accomplishment.

Once you get in the habit and begin to see amazing results, you will never want to stop your program.
