Every January as we set our varying fitness goals and hit the gym with great intentions, there are far too many of us who fall short of those goals.
While one could argue there are many reasons for this, the biggest reason is poor planning. A whopping 80% of new members quit the gym in six weeks. What is more alarming is that when people set a goal only 3% write it down.
When you write a goal down it not only holds you accountable but gives you the opportunity to plan for it. With a fitness goal such as weight loss you can set a date for the goal to be completed and then plan your workout schedule accordingly.
Another advantage to writing the goal down is you can log your progress and make any necessary changes to the plan.
