So, you’ve made it through January – well done! Now you’ve established the habit and you’re exercising regularly, it’s time to focus on your goals and keeping them in sight.
First of all, you might have a goal in mind, but make sure it’s attainable. If you set a goal that’s too difficult, you’re more likely to give up. But, if you really want to push yourself, then try setting some smaller milestones as well to keep yourself motivated.
Be sure to measure your progress in an effective way. Every four weeks, take a measurement or test yourself on what you want to achieve – this could be measuring your waist size, or seeing how much you can bench press. This will not only help keep you motivated, but will allow you to see progress is definitely being made, rather than checking after every single session. Make sure you keep a record as well, so you can see just how far you’ve come.
If you’d like further help in tracking your progress, our Boditrax assessments can keep you on course – this advanced tool measures water, fat, bone density, BMI and the calories you need to give you an accurate picture of your health and fitness level.
