Setting a goal to help overcome procrastination

Finding the motivation to exercise can be difficult at the best of times. This is especially true at this time of the year when the weather can often be a little unpleasant outside.

Many of my clients are finding it helpful to set fitness goals to keep them focused over the testing winter period. A number of clients have already committed to walking or running the City to Surf and one has been training hard, rain, hail or shine to trek the Kokoda trail in Papua New Guinea.

Each of these clients is busy with a full time job and young children at home. In the past they have all been guilty of becoming unfocussed with their training and nutrition. Since setting a specific and time sensitive goal, they have all remarked to me how helpful having their goal is to remaining accountable with their training.

There really is no excuse not to exercise. What’s your goal this winter?
