Have a Clearly Defined Realistic Goal by Mike Kneuer
Know where you want to go. Ask almost any successful person in life, fitness, business, or anything else and they will tell you the importance of goal setting. By creating goals it not only creates motivation but also gives you a measuring stick to compare to. Most people are afraid of failure and therefore don’t set goals. They tend to have average bodies and live average lives. We aren’t here to be average..
It is important that before beginning you have a clearly defined and measurable goal. There is a big difference in your success toward reaching your goal if it is defined. Want to “lose a few pounds” isn’t quite the same as “lose 10lbs of fat and 2 inches off my waist.” It is also important to choose a goal that is realistic. If your goal is too big or unrealistic you will never hit it and give up feeling like a failure. Training with me will help you get to your goal but keep in mind this isn’t I’m not a miracle worker that will take you from 250lbs of fat to 185lbs with a 6-pack in 28 days, but EVERYONE that follows the program customized for them will be much better off after just 28 days then where they started.
Write your goal down. Tell your friends to hold you accountable. Put it somewhere you will see it daily. Keep it in your pocket. And relentlessly chase that goal down!
