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

Everything that Might Be Missing from Your Plant-Based Diet (and Nothing Else!)



1bottle-square-no-sub-250I believe that plant-based is the healthiest way you can eat -- both for how you feel and perform in the short term, and for long-term health. But there are a few nutrients that are hard to get from plants, and I didn't want to take a whole multivitamin with so much extra that I'm already getting from my food. That's why I created Complement Plus, the perfect nutrient formula for plant-based athletes.

Complement Plus brings together, in one place, the essential nutrients that are missing from a reasonably diverse, whole food plant-based diet:
  • B12
  • D3
  • DHA/EPA Omega-3s
  • K2
  • Minerals like zinc, iodine, and selenium
It's everything that might be missing from your plant-based diet, with nothing extra. Click here to learn more.

  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
