As 2019 comes to a close, we look back at the year and reflect on our successes and our not as successful endeavors. And then … we think….”I should make some New Years Resolutions !”
Each year people make New Years Resolutions. Among the most popular are for 2019 were…
- Exercise to get in better shape.
- Diet to lose weight
- Save money
- Eat healthier in general
- Something for self care
Sounds familiar right! Unfortunately, 80% of people fail their resolutions. Most of the time they are too vague. “drop 20 lbs by March” (with no plan), “run 3 miles a day” (never ran), “eat more veggies” (I hate them!).
Resolutions work best when they are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound, according to an article in The NY Times. Wait! What!? That sound very similar to the principles that we follow at CrossFit Jungle Gym! All of our members use 90 day goal setting sessions with one of our coaches! A coach will help you pick goals based on your training regularity, past successes/failures, your nutrition adherence and help you set goals that are achievable in a relevant time frame.
So, perhaps as we move forward into 2020, we should think thoughtfully about what is truly important to us in both our physical and personal growth. Whether our resolutions are fitness based or on a more personal level, you can look to your coaches to be there to help in any way they can.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
