Fitness Point A to Point B

Earlier this week I attended a continuing education seminar about personal financial planning.  There was something I learned from this seminar that I’d like to share in the context of planning one’s health and wellness and, more specifically fitness and strength.

The seminar had a very simple explanation of financial planning, describing it simply as consisting of the following:

ü  It’s all about going from Point A (now) to Point B (where you ultimately want to be).

ü  This process never changes – going from Point A to Point B.

ü  We don’t want to be tempted by and react to what we hear from the media. 

ü  We don’t want to make changes for the heck of it.

ü  A long-term strategy wins the race every time.  It’s a process by which wealth is built over time.  It’s not intended to be a get rich quick scheme.

Our health and wellness planning – more specifically our fitness and strength – is really no different. 

ü  It’s all about going from Point A (now – our current fitness and/or strength) to point B (the fitness and/or strength level where we ultimately want to be).

ü  This process never changes – going to Point A to Point B.

ü  We don’t want to be tempted by what we hear from the media and this includes the fitness gurus we haphazardly stumble across while surfing the internet.

ü  We don’t want to make changes for the heck of it.  This assumes we have crafted a well thought out and designed training plan that is point A to point B-based as discussed in (1) above.

ü  A fitness training strategy that is long-term wins the race every time.  It’s a process (fitness training) by which improved fitness (however we measure it) is achieved over time.  It’s not intended to be a get fit or get strong quick scheme.

With less than one month left this 2015 calendar year, many of us are setting new goals and resolutions for the upcoming year.  Some of these will be fitness and/or strength-related. 

Now’s a good time to give some thought to our New Year resolutions. 

We’ll begin by assessing where we are at the moment and where we’d like to be at various points in the next year.

And then, hopefully, we’ll design a great training plan and back it up with hard work for a pleasant fitness journey taking us from our fitness Point A to Point B.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
