Short-Term Fitness Goals Lead to Long-Term Success

June 03, 2013 2 min read

Your schedule is insane. We know it's hard to maintain your fitness goals. We know that you have a job, a family, a slew of bills to pay, a semblance of a social life to maintain and not enough hours in the day to do it all. So you may feel justified to set your fitness goals on the back-burner. Guess what? It’s not going to fly. The short-term payoff of getting your laundry done by relegating your health to the status of a second class citizen isn’t the best for you in the long run. Yeah, it’s nice to keep your whites white and your colours bright, but the juice isn’t always worth the squeeze. No one denies it’s difficult to stay motivated on long term goals like losing weight or building muscle when faced with the very immediate necessity of meeting a deadline or getting your kids to hockey practice. This is precisely why it is much more effective to live in the now; focus on immediate compensation. It can take weeks and months to actually see the results of proper diet and exercise, and this doesn’t always fuel motivational fires, especially if you’ve just started your foray into fitness and building fitness goals. The good news is there’s a really easy way to retrain your brain: Don’t worry about the long-term. Focus on the immediate benefits of living well. A recent study conducted by the University of Michigan revealed that women who tracked their instant results post workout exercised 34% more over the course of a year compared to those who only concentrated on weight loss or appearance related goals. So, instead of obsessing over your last 10, 20 or 30 lbs, try focusing on immediate benefits of exercise, like feeling happier, boosting your productivity and brain power, being less anxious, sleeping better, enjoying a post workout glow and having better sex. Yeap - ALL benefits of making just a little one on one time for yourself. Now go do it! Get started with our at-home workout routines and you can benefit fast and on your own time.
