To keep up with the theme of sticking with your New Year's Resolutions, I am going to outline seven steps you can take to achieve your fitness goals...regardless of what your goals are. Should you choose to lose weight, build muscle or just stay in shape, these seven steps will help you achieve those fitness goals.
Step #1 - Plan Goals
It is important to start with a set of long term and short term goals to work toward. Some long term goals are to run a marathon, enter a Figure contest, do a photo shoot, the good old ‘getting married’ wedding goal and even to lose a certain number of pounds or inches. Short term goals would be a pound per week or an inch per month, wear a certain item of clothing within a month or two, and lift 3 lbs more in a certain exercise or muscle group within 3 weeks. Figuring out your goals and setting them is what your mainstay will be. You can and probably will adjust them as you go along because results usually bring new goals!
