A plan is the bridge to your goals

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’.
