Personal Trainer Newcastle
This blog is all about goal setting my
awesome tribe. So to achieve anything in
this day and age you need to set realsitic
goals, without goals you are aimless and
being aimless doesn't lead to improved
fitness or weight loss.
Having real goals is the only real way to sustained fitness.

In order for goals to translate into motivation and improved performance, goals must be
specific. A goal to just jump higher is too general. Instead, an example of a specific goal would
be to drop 7lb of fat.
Goals must be measurable to be able to provide progress feedback and to know when the goal is achieved. You must be able to measure the results so a goal of having more energy isnt really
measurable, however losing 7lb of body fat is.
A goal must be attainable to an individual or a group. An individual who has a large body type and frame a mesamorph simply will not be able to become very skinny, they can be athletic but not skinny.
The goal must be challenging, yet realistic. In terms of weight loss losing 2 stone of fat and gaining muscle at the same time within a month is impossible. Now losing 8lb of weight with a mixture of weight loss and putting on lean muscle is achievable with hard work and a good personal trainer.
In order for goals to positively affect motivation and performance, goals must be
time-related. The goals must be time related, for example losing a certain amount of weight or fat, or gaining an amount of muscle in a short amount of time. A large time frame is demotivating
as it is almost impossible to keep motivation for large durations. A more realsitic time would be a month or at longest 3 months. Also when you write your goals down which i suggest you do you must write in the current tense as your brain doesn't recognise future when it comes to goal setting. For example i am so pleased i have lost 3lb of fat this month.
So it's not difficult really and i cannot stress enough how important goal setting is, it can really help with all your weight loss or toning issues.
However with the help of a great personal trainer it will make the whole process much easier.
