Goal setting is vital with physical training and it is important to create goals that are achievable and realistic for yourself. To help create more relevant and realistic goals we can use the SMART goal setting which stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time.
Specific: what exactly do you want to accomplish
Measurable: How will you track the progress or outcome of this goal
Achievable: What are the specific steps you will need to reach this goal
Realistic/Relevant: Is the set goal possible for you to complete
Time: What is the set date or time you want to complete this goal in
