How can goal setting help me improve health, performance and appearance?
What is a goal? A result towards which effort is made for maintenance or improvement. Have you ever set a goal for yourself? Why did you set it?
What is Goal Setting Goal-setting involves establishing Specific, Measurable, Aggressive, Realistic and Time-bound objectives. Have you ever reached a goal you set?
Types of Goals Short-term goals – achievable in 2-4 weeks Long-term goals – achievable in 2 months or more
S.M.A.R.T. Goals S – Specific M – Measureable A – Aggressive R – Realistic T – Time-bound
S – Specific Goals are straight forward Details focus efforts and clearly define what is to be accomplished Example: A general goal would be “increase upper body strength” but a specific goal would say “I want to increase the number of push-ups I can do.” Can you think of another example?
M – Measureable Must be able to answer the questions; “how much?”, or “how will I know when it is accomplished?” Example: A general goal would be “I want to do more push-ups” but a measureable goal would be “I want to increase the number of push-ups I can do by 4.” Can you think of another example?
A – Aggressive Requires effort to achieve beyond what has been achieved before. If you could complete 10 push-ups would an aggressive goal be to complete 11 push ups? What would be an aggressive goal to set for push-ups?
R – Realistic Goal needs to be achievable, reachable and relevant. If you set a goal to lose 25 pounds in 1 week is that realistic? What would be a realistic goal for weight loss in a week?
T - Time-bound Goal should be achievable in a given time period Example: “I want to increase the number of push-ups (specific) I can do by 4 (measureable) by the end of the month (time-bound).
