daughters grow as well is extremely rewarding for Jena. “My oldest daughter is actually a personal trainer too, so watching her get stronger and healthier is awesome.” For now, her goal remains the same: continued training in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, and she is well on her way. Jena is also keen to spend time with her Elite trainers to whom, she says, she owes her life. “I can’t thank them enough for saving me from a very bad downward spiral, and now I feel like I’m in a very good place because of them. They’ve changed my life and saved my life.” All the trainers at Elite Edge strive to make transformations, like Jena’s, happen for every person who reaches out to us in their time of need. Keep fighting, stay healthy, and never back down.
have in life. Was there something you tried to do last year but, for one reason or another, it fell through? Do you have a specific target you want to hit this year? What new goal do you want to get behind? These are all critical questions you should be asking yourself when you start to think about what you accomplish as we slowly progress through the year. One of the biggest drawbacks of New Year’s resolutions is the follow-through. Think back to how often you’ve set goals for yourself that didn’t come to fruition? Most New Year’s resolutions fall through because people don’t take the time to pinpoint the meanings of their goals and plan them out accordingly. If you want to lose weight, simply writing down that goal isn’t enough. You need to think about how much weight you want to lose, the best way you can start to lose it, when you hope to lose that amount, and why the goal is important. Goals need to be specific, or they’ll be that much harder to achieve. Similarly, goals need to be approached slowly. Overworking yourself by going to the gym every single day when your body isn’t used to that kind of training will burn you out and do more harm than good. Take things one step at a time. The most popular and effective way to set goals is with SMART, a method of goal setting that takes goals and breaks them down into five categories: S pecific, M easurable, A chievable, R elevant, and T ime- bound. This method ensures that your goals are meaningful to you. Most importantly, SMART provides the motivation you need to make accomplishing those goals a tangible possibility.
Don’t let your objectives for 2020 slip past you. Plan, gauge, and work your way to them.
