Awesome Performance Goals To Inspire Your Training
With every passing year, you might find setting New Years resolutions a bit of a drag. This is possibly because the goals we set for ourselves are not realistic. And this is because most goals are not a destination, but rather a journey of behaviours. At 23W, we love to encourage our members to make habit changes that are aligned with their values rather than what they think they ‘should’ do.
While setting body composition goals are no doubt alluring, setting inspiring performance goals can be a better motivating factor to find consistency in your training.
Do not get too greedy either. Pick on goal to work on at a time, this should be challenging to reach but not impossible. Secondly, it is important that you take time to map out how you will achieve this goal.
Pick a goal that can be achieved over the course of several months or even a year. A long-term mentality will help you see your goal as a lifestyle change, rather than quick fix, and you’ll be much more likely to adhere to it.
It is important to dedicate time towards this goals to make it your own. If you have a goal to do one unassisted chin up, you may need to practise components of this skill overtime you train.
