Setting goals (short and long term) is crucial in your journey towards success. This is especially true when it comes to your fitness and health goals. It is important to start with SHORT TERM goals. These goals are easier to visualize and easier to achieve. You will feel excited, motivated and eager to continue on after each short term goal that you conquer. It is important to remember that not all goals are the same. While one person's goal may be to lose a specific number of pounds, another person's goal may be to be able to use the stairs at their office instead of using the elevator everyday. Everyone's own personal goals and motivations vary from person to person. It is important for me and for you to always remember that what works for one person may not work for another, and that does NOT mean that you are a failure or somehow unworthy, it simply means that we need to find YOUR thing; what works for YOU!. And finally, AGE MEANS NOTHING!!! I have worked with clients from one end of the age spectrum to the other, and while each situation comes with it's own set of challenges, they also come with their own set of rewards. Fitness may look different from a 26 year old person to a 86 year old person, as it should. Just remember, each individual needs to set realistic and obtainable goals for themselves and not compare their journey or process to that of another person because when you start to compare yourself to another person(s), you are setting yourself up for failure... and that is what we do not want.
