THUR 12.31.15 Set Goals And Smash Them In 2016!

By | WOD | No Comments

Goals for 2016

Tomorrow, we start 2016! As we reminisce on all the great experiences of this past year, our thoughts quickly turn to look ahead, and onto new year goals and resolutions.

What goals and benchmarks have you set for 2016? Have you met with your coach to discuss actionable steps to achieve these goals in 30, 60, and 90 day intervals? There is a reason we have our goal setting for 30 days for new members and each Quarterly Progress Check. 30-Day Goals just work! However, there is nothing wrong with annual goals. They are powerful in every sense, but we want to do the best we can to break up big goals into smaller, time-bound, specific, measurable benchmarks so we can reward ourselves along the path of fitness.

If you want something badly, you can do it for 30 days. Think about something you really want to get after… actually think about it. Yes, you could do it for 30 days, right? Now ask yourself – can you do it for 300 days? That extra “0” may have changed it up a bit. An annual goal doesn’t need to be tackled tomorrow, where a near-sighted goal has a burning fire inside of it.

Maybe you take a different approach this year. Maybe your annual goal is to have 12 independent months of goal setting, and accomplishment. In 30 days we can best our last set of goals in the month prior; we can focus purely on the process, and not solely on the end state. Because as we know, when we embrace this journey, and truly enjoy every second of it, we arrive at the destination before we know it. This place where the path and destination are the same for our happiness, health, and fitness.

As we think about new year goals, keep this in mind: Make every day count towards bettering ourselves and the people we care about. “Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.” -Charles Richard

Quarterly Progress Checks

Next week 12/7-12/13 is the quarterly progress checks where we retest from August, May, and Feb of 2015. There will be benchmark WODs or lifts each day.

Is this your first Quarterly Check-In Week?

Here's what's about to go down...
1. Retest your baseline! For one of your workouts for the week, you'll retest your Baseline. You also have the option to retest your Baseline WOD on Sunday at Open Gym on 12/6 or 12/13 from 11am-12pm OR any Open Gym during the week.
2. Goal-Setting & reflection: At the beginning of class on Mon & Tues, we'll take 10 minutes to reflect on our progress over the last three months and set some goals for the next quarter. If you prefer to spend more time on goal-setting, join Mike next Tuesday evening, Dec 8th from 7:15-7:45pm for a goal-setting workshop. We'll take some time to visualize what we want our future to be like, then set smaller, action steps to achieve our longer-term goals.
3. Record your results! If you haven't been doing it already, now is the time to start tracking your progress in the gym. Use the Zen Planner Phone App, or you can track through the Zen Planner web page. Or Google Docs, or old school with a journal. We have journals available at the ProShop.
