Summer goals

To have a fit and fantastic summer, create a plan to help you achieve your goals. Make your goals realistic:

  • Start each day with a healthy eating option
  • Include a warm up and cool down in your daily training
  • Split your goals into morning goals, e.g. 10 push-ups, and evening, e.g. 10 squats
  • Record each session to track your progress
  • Share a goal with a training buddy
  • Reset your goals after you tick one off
  • Be honest with yourself
  • Set a weekly goal based on time available that week, e.g. if you’re busy at work, plan for a walking session before or after work
  • Build flexibility into your plan to allow for other activities
  • Allocate time in the am and pm for training (use one or both)
  • Have your training gear ready for the next day
  • Water, hat and sunscreen during the warmer months
  • In hot weather, shorten your workout and do a two-way split (cardio in the am, strength in the pm)
  • Know your workout area if you’re outside
