"Together we'll achieve your goals"

    Make 2013 the year that you achieve your health and fitness goals. The first step to achieving your goals is knowing what you want to achieve. If you don't know what you actually want to achieve, how will you ever know if you have achieved it. So actually take some time to think about them and write down your goals for 2013. Be honest and be open about what you want to achieve with regard to your health and fitness. Once you have confirmed what your goals are, you can then go about achieving them. Knowing what you want to achieve is great. However, once you do its vital to then make your goals Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time focused (SMART). People often say to me "I want to lose a bit of weight" or "run faster" or "...

    What have you achieved in 2012? Have you achieved what you wanted to achieve? Could you have done more? What went well? What did not go well etc? Take some time to review the past 12 months and to analyse how you have got on with achieving your health and fitness goals. This is a great way to actually see if you achieved what you set out to achieve. When I speak to people about their goals and aims, they are quick to say what they wanted to achieve but when I ask them have they reviewed their success, the answer is often “no”. As part of the review process, write down what your goals were at the start of the year and then next to it write down the actual outcome. Also, make a note of what you did to achieve your goal or what you could have...

    From my experience training and working with clients, I have observed and analysed what I feel are the personal characteristics that will go some way to helping you achieve your goals. These ‘characteristics’ are not a list of what you should possess, but are merely the traits that my most successful clients (and by this I mean those that have achieved their individual goals) have. They are the attributes that I have seen displayed consistently and on a regular basis by my clients. Achieving your health and fitness goals is not just about training regularly and eating healthy (which is vital); you also have to show certain skills and qualities that will keep you on your journey. At times the going will be tough and it will be a challenge,...
