Do you know how to set your exercise goals effectively?
The first step to the success of an exercise programme is all about setting appropriate goals. These goals should not be too high, as this demotivates us, and not too low because then we never get an opportunity to fulfil our potential.
Easier said than done? If you follow the tips below, setting goals will not be as dauting a task anymore.
What are goals?
There is not a person in the world who does not wish for something. Some people dream of a podium performance at the Olympic games, while others hope not to get out of breath when taking the stairs up to their office on the third floor. If we want wishes to come true, we must actualize and visualize them. In order to achieve them, we first need to set measurable endpoints which are called goals. Well-planned goals accurately determine the intention of our activities, (e.g. exercise), as they guide, define, and rationalize our activity.
