Fitness Friday: SMART Goals with Baby Boot Camp



It’s time for goal setting at Baby Boot Camp Los Angeles (Culver City & Marina Del Rey).  Even if you’re not a member, you can still participate by setting your personal goals. Think of a fitness/health related short-term goal that you would like to achieve by January 1st. Some examples would be: be able to do 10 push-ups; run a mile in 9 minutes; go to class 3x per week; loose 5lbs.

Setting S.M.A.R.T. goals


Instead of saying “I want to work out more,” put them in terms, such as “I’m going to lose 1 inches in my waist in 2 months,” or “I’m going to work out three times a week at Baby Boot Camp.


Your goal needs to have limits in order to know if the goal was reached.  For example, you could say that you will increase your activity level and decrease you calorie intake, if you want to lose weight.


You goal must be realistic, but also challenging.


Your goal should challenge you.  Make it personal to your needs.  And, remember, it must be fitness or health related.


For our exercise, we will end our challenge on January 1, 2016!
