Setting New Goals at the Gym

21 April 2019

We have been busy setting gym challenges and goals for 2019 for all of our gym users at Futures Life Skills Centre. This is in the form of short term goals that we are aiming to hit by Easter, medium term goals that we are aiming to reach by the end of the summer and long term goals to try and reach by the end of the year.

Everyone has 3 goals that can vary depending on their individual programme that fitness instructors Dan and Charles help take all of our gym users through their exercises and programmes. Just some of the many goals that have been set include - reaching a certain boxing score, completing a distance set score on any of our cardiovascular machines, performing a set number of resistance exercises or knocking down skittles in a certain number of shots.

Goal setting is a vital part of any fitness programme and helps provide extra motivation, focus and enthusiasm towards a gym workout.

We are pleased to say that one of our regular gym users, Julia reached all of her targets this week, consisting of:

1. Completing a walking distance of 32 metres with a 2kg ankle weight attached to either foot
2. Completing 56 high knee raises with 2kg ankle weights attached to either foot
3. Completing over 60% physical activity on the Thera Trainer bike in 5 mins

Well done Julia from Dan, Charles and everyone at Chailey Heritage Foundation!
