Personal Exercise Program

Aerobic Exercise Goal Setting
Before starting your exercise program decide why you want to get fit and how fit you want to be. Research has shown that goal-setting does work.

Long-Term Goals:
Start out by writing your long-term goals for the next four to six months. This could be entering your first ever 5k race. Make sure your goals are realistic and try to make your goal/goals something that really means something to you.

Short-Term Goals:
Set these goals for one to four weeks. This could include starting the exercise program and filling out the goal sheet faithfully. It could also be cutting 30 seconds off your walking program.

Immediate Goals:
These are goals for each day or workout. This program will outline for you the frequency, duration, and distance goals for an exercise of your choice. You can choose from walking, jogging, swimming, bicycling, or cross training. This will make it that much easier for you.

Write Everything Down: To help you in recording your exercise we have an exercise log that you can print and keep in your planner, on your refrigerator, or wherever you will remember to log it. This will allow you to see how much you have exercised and you will probably surprise yourself with your accomplishments.
