Creating SMART goals for fitness journey (Specific, measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bound)

When starting your fitness journey here at Excel Body Fitness in Cary/Morrisville, it is important to know just exactly what goals you are aiming to accomplish. Using the SMART goal method is a great way to ensure your goals are not only reasonable, but achievable as well. The acronym goes as follows:

S- specific

When thinking about your goals, have a SPECIFIC idea in mind. Rather than saying “I want to tone up”, say, “I want to create muscle growth and definition in my legs, arms, and back.” With specifying your goal, you are more likely to take the exact steps needed to achieve them. 

M- measurable 

Making sure your goals are measurable is also a key part in this process. You can measure your goals with pounds, percentages, etc. 

A- Attainable

Your goals have to be attainable and within reach considering restraints of money, time, lifestyle, and environment. 

R- Realistic

Make sure your goals are realistic and align with your lifestyle. Once you achieve these goals, you want to ensure that you can maintain them while still enjoying life. 

T- Time bound

Set a specific time that you want to achieve this goal. 

Before using the SMART method:

I want to exercise more. 

After using the SMART method:

I want to exercise for 30 minutes each day, four days a week by the end of 2021 and maintain this schedule through 2022. 

Then, pick the 4 days on your calendar and schedule the 30 minute workout on each of those days and block your calendar for those 30-45 minutes. This way, you cannot accidentally double book yourself.

We can assure you that implementing the SMART goal method into your journey will help push you even closer to achieving your fitness goals!
