Setting fitness goals can help you stay motivated to be physically active. Goals are most useful when they are specific, realistic, and important to you. Your specific fitness goal should be simple and manageable. For example, you may want to take a walk every day. Be realistic about time commitments and ability.
Your short-term fitness goals help make physical activity a regular part of your daily life. Make a list of short-term and long-term fitness goals. Focus on where you want to be in six months, a year, or two years from now.
