There is more to goal setting than writing down a list of fitness goals. While that is important, it’s not the only thing you have going on in your life. We’ve created this guide to help you not only PR or get a pull-up but will help in other areas of your life as well. Life is a balancing act and your short term goals must be in line with your long term one.
Remember there are no failures, only the outcomes of your actions. Use this template to get your goals on paper: CrossFit Ozone Goals
Step 1. Define EXACTLY what you want and tell somebody.
Write it down and read it daily or weekly. It’s easy just to write it down on a random napkin and never review it; this will not yield results you want. You must constantly remind yourself what you’re working toward so that you are not easy strayed. Tell everyone you know especially the ones who will keep you accountable for your actions.
Step 2. Road Map
How will you get there? How long will it take you? What will stand in your way? Think about this and plan accordingly.
Step 3. PMA- Positive Mental Attitude
State your goals in the IS not the IF. There is a difference between wanting and having. The universe is your Genie, Your wish is its command and it reproduces what you assume to be true. Examples: “I am my ideal weight of X lbs. by X date,” versus “I want to lose 20 lbs.” or “I eat a diet full of fresh veggies, meat, fruit and nuts”.
Step 4. B- SMART
Don’t end up be guy in the gym with big arms but skinny legs, or the super fit girl who lives in the gym but has no friends.
Specific means well defined something that would be clear to anyone else.
Ex. Not specific—I want to be stronger. Specific— I want to be able to deadlift my body weight.
Ask questions such as, how much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished? Ex. Not measurable—Get fit. Measurable—lose 5 pounds of fat, gain five pounds of muscle, complete the Tough Mudder and be able to reach my toes.
You can’t run a marathon tomorrow, but you can run around the block. Your goals need to stretch you, push you to go farther and faster than you ever thought possible. At the same time, you don’t want them to debilitate or discourage you.
Do they align with your mission and support the vision you have for your life?
Deadlines put a time stamp on your goals and there is end in sight, which makes goals attainable.
Don’t forget about the new app! It’s the perfect way to keep up with your progress if you remember to log your results after every work out.
