Your favorite instructor, the one who teaches the Thursday POUND class, says it all the time.
It’s a slogan that has popped up in your Instagram feed more than once.
You may have even said it once or twice to your best friend while struggling through the aforementioned POUND class.
Remember why you started.
What if you don’t remember what made you sign up for the gym 10 years ago? Or maybe you do remember but you’re just not sure it matters anymore. You aren’t the same person you were five or ten years ago. Every season of life brings new challenges and new joys. Now is the time to acknowledge that why we started isn’t always the best reason to keep moving forward.
It’s time to pause and connect with your why. Here’s a chance set your compass again.
I’ve always been big on goal setting. I’ve written mission statements for my business life and long ago I wrote one for my personal life. It was only recently that I was challenged to write my FIT LIFE mission statement.
How does one write a fitness mission statement?
I feel like I was half way there with my 100 Dreams List. Then I used some of the techniques from the Precision Nutrition curriculum and pulled in some exercises from my Franklin Covey training. I came up with a simple five step process to create a meaningful fitness mission statement.
Why you need a fitness mission statement
A fitness mission statement helps you understand why fitness matters to you. It’s a constant reminder of why you’re on this path and how you want to live. I love how the team at Precision Nutrition presents the importance of having a fitness mission statement:
We must remind ourselves to be what we want to be every single day.
Every day we are tempted to make bad choices. Every day, we must refresh and revive our commitment to living healthily.
