Do you walk into the gym and just train for the sake of training, or are you focused on achieving something more specific?
What are your training goals? What are you chasing?
As a coach, I find that when I client approaches me for training, establishing a goal, or a few small goals, is a great way to start. When you establish a goal, you give purpose and meaning to what you are doing inside and outside of the gym. When you achieve a goal, you grow a sense of self worth, confidence and determination like no other.
However, I find that so many people who do train, don’t really know what they want to get out of it. My advice to everyone is to think about why you’re taking those steps into the gym. Establish at least one specific goal, whether it be to lose 5kgs of fat, lose 3% body fat in 2 months, or squat 100kg. It will vary from person to person.
Your goal doesn’t need to be drastic. It doesn’t need to be sport specific. It doesn’t need to be ego driven. Your goal should be a personal reflection of what you want to achieve in order to better yourself and your lifestyle.
Take a moment to think about what you want to achieve. Choose a goal and put in 100% effort until you own it.
