With the holidays about to spill over I thought it was time to relate a few items that are important this time of year.
I am not going to give one of the ra ra speeches about how to ovoid overeating and drinking or how to not offend you mother in-law.....again. What I am going to do is talk about being active over the holidays and more importantly being charitable.

Well with the ‘off season’ among us in most major sports, now as strength coaches the real work can get done and there is no better time to talk about goal setting. Whether you are an elite athlete or someone wants to lose few pounds you need to set goals, period. It is how one goes about setting their goal(s) which is crucial for achieving them. I suggest people use the SMART acronym when setting their goal(s).
A Coastal Fitness team member recently submitted a new blog post on goal setting. (To be posted soon). This is a very important step for all of us who are looking to make changes with our body or even just to stay healthy over the long term. I got to thinking as I was reading it over, that there was something missing, not in the article itself but in the whole idea. Something that was integral to the success of reaching said goal. I thought to myself, what a great learning opportunity this was, a way that I can improve as a trainer. I realize that while both long and short term goal setting is vital for client’s success; the action steps to get there are actually ‘the plan’.
