There are only 15 days left in 2015. Do you know what that means? We will soon be wiping down the goals board and replacing it with your soon-to-be accomplishments for the new year.
Think about both a short and a long term goal you’d like to tackle. The short-term goal should be something you are almost to the point of achieving. This will keep you motivated. The long-term goal is something that may take more time and determination, but is also doable.
Make your goals specific and measurable. For instance, “work on mobility” isn’t a measurable goal; “spend 15 minutes per day on shoulder mobility” is better. Instead of “get double-unders,” phrase your goal as “string 10 unbroken double-unders together.” “Get faster” isn’t specific enough; however “run a sub-7 mile” is.
Our weekly programming allows time for goal work on Thursdays, but your best bet is to work on your desired goal on a more regular basis. Some goals, like double-under and handstands, can be worked into your warm-up. Olympic lifting goals can be achieved if you commit to attending the beginner Barbell and Vero Barbell sessions. Gymnastics goals can be done pre- or post-workout a few times per week.
Publicly state you goal on the board. Come up with a plan. Visualize it. Do it!
Need help with developing your goal and a plan? See a coach. We are more than happy to collaborate. We love seeing you all succeed!
