3 Health and Fitness Goals to Avoid?

Is there a right way and a wrong way to set health and fitness goals?

That’s the question Matt and I were asking ourselves after reading a recent article on the site Precision Fitness. The author, John Berardi, challenges the reader to structure your goal setting with his formula.

But after reading through, there were a few major points where we all disagreed.

In today’s episode, Matt and I discuss John’s model, and lay out or own strategies on how best to set health or fitness goals that prime you for success.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Should you set a big outcome goal?
  • Success through small habits and changes
  • Matt’s lead and lag measure theory
  • Does your brain understand negatives?
  • The pros and cons of dabbling

  1. I am a person who likes health promotion and are going the gym. For good health, I should have set targets for themselves. And with time, reasonable workout schedule. :). And the most important thing is to persevere measured.

  2. Goals should be short, medium and long.
    From experience, if you just set Big, Long term goals, you’ll set yourself up to fail every time.

    And this is not just for fitness but all walks of life
