July Goal Setting Tips


Goal setting can improve focus and motivation. We recommend setting SMART goals. Here's how:

Specific - Measurable - Achievable - Relevant - Time Bound

Specific: Goals should be clear and easy to understand.

Measureable: Goals should be measurable so that you have evidence that you have accomplished the goal. This generally means adding some sort of number into your goal.

Attainable: The goal should be realistic. Goals that are too easy or too difficult to acheive may decrease motivation. Set a challenging yet attainable goal.

Relevant: Set a goal that is important to YOU.

Time-Bound: Set a time frame to complete your goal. You could set one month goals, three months goals, one year goals, lifetime goals, etc.

Good Examples:

  • I will lose 10 pounds in 3 months.

  • I will squat 225 in 1 month.

  • I will exercise 3x a week for 60 minutes each this month.

Bad Examples:

  • Lose weight

  • Squat more

  • Exercise more

Additional tips

  • For weight loss or weight gain, 1 pound per week is a great goal.

  • Strength goals can be harder to set. Beginners might increase 10lbs on each exercise per month where an advanced athlete might increase 5lbs in 3 months on just one exercise.
