As we approach the end of 2020 it is quite clear to see how tired and exhausted trainers have become navigating the most unpredictable and challenging year to date. Whilst we can take positives out of 2020, such as online personal training and a better understanding of health in relation to Covid-19, the long hours training clients in the parks during Lockdown 2.0 has finally caught up with us. December is a cold dark month which is usually overshadowed by Christmas cheer, but understandably not everyone is feeling so festive this month.
As we enter the busiest time of the year for the fitness industry, December is the month to lay the groundworks for January and the year ahead. As demanding as this year has been already, the time you put into planning now will make the transition into 2021 smoother. It’s time to re-evaluate this year and get SMART.
S – Specific, significant, stretching
What will be accomplished? What actions will you take?
M – Measurable, meaningful, motivational
What data will measure the goal? (How much? How well?)
A – Agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented
Is the goal doable? Do you have the necessary skills and resources?
R – Realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented
How does the goal align with broader goals? Why is the result important?
T – Time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, trackable
What is the time frame for accomplishing the goal?
Setting realistic goals will guide you in the right direction and keep you motivated no matter how hard things get.
Between prospecting for new clients, getting existing clients results, and billing more hours, setting SMART goals can help you stay on track so you know exactly what steps to take on a daily basis to reach your specific target.
The time to elevate your business is now!
