We have covered in the past how to make a “SMART” goal. In order to even hope to find success, your goal needs to be: specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and timed. We even add to that, saying you should share it with someone you trust who can hold you accountable. So, that’s great, now you have your smart goal set, but what happens next?
You need a PLAN that is personalized to you and your specific needs to help you go from “wishing” to actually accomplishing something worthwhile. Such a plan needs to be extremely detailed and account for each day of the period of time you have allocated to reach your goal. Sure, you can be a little flexible and swap a day here or there, but the point is you need to follow that plan if you want results.
What’s Your Goal?
Tell us in the comments and then stop in the fitness center to fill out one of the posters shown above. It will be posted on a board (anonymously) in the Fitness Center for you to see every time you come in for a workout. Talk about a constant reminder to keep you motivated!
What’s Your Plan?
When you tell us your goal, you will also need to fill out a “contract” of sorts. This is our way of not only providing you with a personalized goal-setting meeting with one of our Fitness Staff, but also a chance to set up that plan we mentioned above, and really COMMIT to yourself.
Then, when you accomplish your goal–and we all know you will!–you will have a final follow-up goal completion meeting with the Fitness Staff, plus you will be entered to win one of the following prizes (1 set of prizes offered per club!):
- 1 hour personal training session
- 1 six week small group training session
- 1 hour massage
- $50 Elite gift card
So, stop saying I WISH, and start saying I WILL! Fill out a your MyPact goal contract now, or pick one up in the Fitness Center the next time you are at the club!
