Now’s the time to apply what you learned about SMART goals to your own life. Start by choosing a broad area for improving your health or fitness. You might want to boost flexibility, build speed, or increase endurance.
Turn that broad goal into a SMART goal. Identify exactly what you want to achieve, how you will measure it, and the time frame for achieving it. Make sure you choose a realistic, achievable goal. Share your SMART goal with your classmates. If you want advice about any part of your goal, let your classmates know.
Offer feedback to two of your classmates about their goals. You might point out a way to make a goal more specific. You could encourage them to be more patient with themselves if it seems they set an unrealistically hard goal. Remember to be kind and respectful to your classmates. Each person starts their fitness journey in a different place. It takes courage to share personal goals.
