Your Health And Fitness Review

Your health and fitness review

GET FIT & MEAN IT! with World Champion Kate Bramley

It is important to regularly review your health and fitness goals and reflect on any improvements you have made, or not achieved.

Think back to the exercise you have done in the last month. Does it tick the following boxes?

  • Consistent each week with slight increases
  • In a set routine
  • Improvement on any weaknesses

Now compare this to 12 months ago. Hopefully if you have been consistent with your exercise you will be able to identify two areas of improvement you have made over this period. This could be the ease at which you complete sessions, distance covered, increased speed, decreased percentage body fat, increase muscle mass etc.

 

Now identify one area you would still like to improve on. Set yourself a goal for 6 weeks time and also 3 months time.

Example:
Identified weakness – can swim continuously for 20mins
6 week goal – swim for 30mins
3 month goal – swim for 60mins including group session
