Author: Coach Nick Book

2023 was a tough year for us all. But that doesn't mean that we should stop setting our fitness and performance goals for 2024. Sure, you may have indulged in too much cake in the previous year. But it’s never too late to shape up. Let’s face it: laziness and lack of motivation can get in the way of achieving our health and performance goals. But don't worry, this guide to achieving fitness goals in 2024 is here to help. 

Set SMART goals

Goal-setting is crucial for achieving success in the world of health and performance. But it's not enough to scribble down, "I want to be strong" or "I want to lose weight" on a piece of paper. Instead, set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-based. This means that instead of just writing, "I want to lose weight," write, "I want to lose 20 pounds in 4 months by going to the gym for 45 minutes, five times a week, and cutting out sugar from my diet." This way, you have a clear plan to follow.

Create a workout routine that suits you

Creating a workout routine that suits you is essential in achieving your fitness goals. You don't have to do what everyone else is doing. Instead, find a workout routine that you enjoy. This could be anything from yoga to dancing to weight-lifting. Doing workouts that you enjoy will make you more likely to stick to the routine.

Make small changes to your diet

Changing your diet entirely is never easy. But making small changes to your diet can have a big impact. Start by cutting out processed sugars and incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your meals. Don't cut out food entirely, but take it step by step.

Find a workout buddy

Working out alone can be dull and demotivating. Finding a workout buddy can make exercising more enjoyable as it creates accountability and motivation. You can try to join a class, or even just ask your friend to work out with you for a few days a week.

Track your progress

Tracking your progress is crucial for staying motivated. It allows you to celebrate small victories along the way, which, in turn, create momentum towards your goal. Keep a journal or download a fitness tracking app to monitor your progress and note what works well and what doesn't.

In Conclusion...

Fitness and performance should be a journey rather than a destination. Remember, set SMART goals, create a workout routine that suits you, make small changes to your diet, find a workout buddy, and track your progress. With these five simple bullet points, you'll be well on your way to achieving your fitness and performance goals in 2024!
