Junk Free June is the perfect time to hit reset on your health and fitness goals. You’ve already taken the first step by cutting out the ‘junk’ so now’s your chance to up-the-ante on your fitness regime.

Here are 5 tips to help you set (and smash) your fitness goals

  1. Be smart about your goals– Your fitness goals should be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound). What do you want to achieve? What is your timeframe? How will you get there? You need to have an understanding of what it takes to achieve these goals, and have realistic expectations of yourself.

  2. Buddy up – Stay motivated by working out with a friend. Having a friend along for a workout gives you the added support, encouragement and motivation you both need to push past your limits.

  3. Find your fitness type – Are you a high intensity GRIT® fanatic? Or a groovin’ BODYJAM® guru? Try new classes and workouts to find out what makes you tick. If you find a workout you love, then you’re more likely to stick at it. For your goals to be attainable, you need to be 100% on-board with what is required to achieve them.

  4. Treat yourself – For every fitness milestone you achieve, it’s important to praise your efforts and treat yourself. This could mean a pamper day, some new gear for the gym or even some delicious guilt free treats.

  5. Be accountable – Talk about your goals, be accountable and keep pushing. Smashing your goals is 10% preparation and 90% hard work. The hardest part is often putting your sneakers on and getting out the door.
