As we start the new year, now is the perfect time to set some fitness goals that you can strive to reach over the next two years. The best part is, with 2023 on the horizon, it’s not too late to make a plan and start working towards achieving your goals. Here are some tips for setting fitness goals that you can work towards in 2023.
Set Realistic Goals
When setting fitness goals for yourself, it’s important to be realistic about what you can achieve. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment by making lofty goals that are hard to reach. Start small and build from there; put yourself on a path of progress that will gradually lead you towards success. For example, if you’re just starting out with fitness, don’t commit to running a marathon in two years’ time—start by setting smaller milestones such as running 5k or 10k races throughout 2021 and 2022.
Create an Action Plan
Once you’ve set your goal(s), it’s important to create an action plan so that you can track your progress along the way. This action plan should include specific dates and milestones that need to be achieved in order for you to reach your ultimate goal by 2023. Having a structured plan will help keep you motivated and make sure that you stay on track as much as possible. It’ll also give you something tangible to refer back to when times get tough and motivation starts waning—you’ll be able to look at how far you’ve come since beginning your journey and be reminded of why it’s important for you to keep going!
Take Time To Reflect
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of reaching our goals but remember: taking time out of your day periodically throughout 2021 and 2022 is essential in helping keep your motivation levels high. Make sure you take some time every week or month (depending on how quickly/slowly you want/need progress)to reflect on how far you have come since starting out—this will help boost morale, provide clarity around where more effort needs focusing, and remind yourself why this journey was worth embarking on in the first place!
2023 promises amazing opportunities for growth—especially when it comes to physical health & fitness! Whether it’s committing yourself fully to training for a marathon or simply setting smaller achievable milestones such as losing weight or building muscle mass through strength training exercises – anything is possible with a little bit of hard work & dedication!
