Living Beyond Today: Fitness Goals Everyone Should Set

Millions of people vow to get in shape at least once every 365 days. Some want to look good for a trip to the islands, while others want to achieve more ambitious fitness goals—running a marathon, putting up 300 pounds on the bench press or making the team.

However, sometimes, they start fast, push hard, find daily inspiration for a while, and then come up short. The pressure, time commitment and physical demands are often too much for their bodies to bear. Setting long-term, realistic goals means that you have to find your daily inspiration in the knowledge that what you do today will pay off in the future.

Luckily, this doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Just set some simple fitness goals:

  • Focus on fat: Slowly cut fat from your diet and do little things in the gym that are proven to burn fat faster, like engaging in long, slow exercises on the bike, elliptical or treadmill. Less fat in your life means more energy.
  • Do your best: Fitness goals are important, but you’re more likely to feel good about them when you measure your accomplishments against yourself instead of others.
  • Ease into endurance: If you want to live life to the fullest, you’re going to want to be able to stand upright and breathe normally for it.
  • Find your flexibility: Flexibility and mobility make everything—running, going up the stairs, traveling, waking up in the morning—much easier.
  • Improve your balance: All elite athletes share one common trait — they have the ability to stay balanced.
  • Strengthen your core: If there’s one thing that will allow you to achieve your fitness goals, it’s having a strong core. This is the foundation for everything you do, from burning fat to building strength and endurance.

Find your daily inspiration, and get started today. And then inspire others by sharing your story on the Sentenced2Life website and showing your commitment to living life to the fullest.
