HOW GOAL REVIEWS HELP YOU SUCCEED
When was the last time someone said “well done!” to you?
When was the last time you took a moment to reflect on what you’ve achieved?
We live in a world full of emojis and constant communication but often very little real connection.
Goal reviews are an opportunity for you to celebrate your wins and set new goals that excite you:
WHY WE CELEBRATE WINS
It’s actually pretty rare that as adults that someone says to us: “well done!”
Our fitness is the most important aspect of our health that we can control. Yet it is rare that we take the time to pause, think and celebrate the wins along our fitness journey.
Celebrating wins along our fitness journey is important for several reasons:
- Boost motivation and confidence: Celebrating your wins, no matter how small, can help boost your motivation and confidence. It's easy to get discouraged when progress feels slow or non-existent, but taking time to acknowledge and celebrate your achievements can help keep you motivated and remind you of the progress you've already made.
- Reinforce positive habits: Celebrating your wins can help reinforce positive habits and behaviours. When you celebrate reaching a goal or milestone, you're more likely to want to continue the actions that got you there in the first place.
- Improve mental health: Celebrating your wins can give you a sense of accomplishment and pride, which can help improve your overall well-being and mental health. This can also help you stay committed to your fitness journey and make it more enjoyable.
- Embrace the journey: Celebrating your wins can encourage you to set new goals and continue making progress. This can help you maintain a positive mindset and keep you motivated to keep working towards your fitness goals.
THE OVERNIGHT SUCCESS STORY
The overnight fitness success stories you see on social media simply do not not exist.
We’re sorry to break it to you! Want proof? Check out the sales of home fitness equipment online - the graveyard of abandoned hopes and dreams.
Change takes time.
Shortcuts are short lived.
Fitness adaptations require consistency over months and years, not quick fix bootcamps.
By setting 90 day goals and celebrating the milestones along the way we can build new habits and create a new self identity. Goal reviews help because they help you see success, help you see your progress.
A Goal Review is a 15 minute online video call where we celebrate your wins and plan the path to achieving your next goal.
- We have Goal Reviews with all members every 90 days
- Choose a date that is around 90 days after we last met
- Want to review goals sooner? No problem - book the date that works for you
Not a member but want to set goals? Great, let's talk!
THE FITNESS PLATEAU
Maybe you feel that nothing is changing or you are going backwards. You’ve hit a plateau. If you do hit a fitness plateau, know that it is normal. Fitness plateaus happen to coaches, professional athletes and members like you.
Or maybe you underestimated what you are capable of and need new stretch targets.
Or maybe we need to talk together to help you realise the progress you are making.
The important thing is that we meet, make a plan and move forward. That’s why we review your goals every 90 days. Together we come up with new plans as your life and goals change over time.
Don’t just take our word for it. There’s a huge body of scientific evidence to support that celebrating wins works:
