It has been a while since creating a new blog post. For that, I apologize. Not that I am the most important person in your world to pay attention to, but I do feel as though I can provide some good information to like-minded individuals. So here's what has been on my mind this week.
Goals should be SMART. That is, they should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. It's admirable to say you want to lose weight but that's too vague. Saying "I want to lose 15 pounds in 3 months" is better. You have set a specific goal that you can measure, is doable and there is a set a time frame in which to reach it. Great start! Now, write that goal down and put it somewhere that you can see it often as a reminder to yourself. This is your long-term goal.
NO EXCUSES has become the tag line for the developing Balance Fitness (Balance by Garrett) brand. It is on the webpage, it's on the T-shirts, it's on the car, and it is certainly woven into the Balance Fitness philosophy. But what does NO EXCUSES mean? I'll share my thoughts on the phrase in this blog but I'd really like to hear from you to know what you think about when you see NO EXCUSES. Please post your comments below!
Okay, maybe I am a rookie trainer to be saying this but I won't promise any results. Nope, nada. You read that right. I think there is too many trainers out there who say that if you stick with my program you will expect to loose X pounds by X date. Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. It’s a great sales technique but it’s not my style. I create SMART goals with my clients. What is SMART? I’ll tell you.S-Specific (I will loose 4 lbs in one month)
