Being fit is

There is no one way to define being fit.

Being fit differs for everyone, and so it should be because being fit is


The definitions of fitness between a gymnast and a tennis player are vastly different for the reason I mentioned above.

One thing for certain.  No matter what type of athlete you are, or want to become.  There are 3 things that will define you.



Being fit is about making goals.

Without goals, you’ll never get the result you want.

So go write down all the things you want to achieve.  Need help, check out some tips here.

Want to run 5km in under 25 minutes? Want to do a handstand? Want to run a Tough Mudder? It doesn’t matter what your goal is write it down. Think big (you can always readjust your goal later if you need to).

Now think about how you are going to get there.

Ask yourself “what do I have to do in my workouts/training to get to my goal.

Set your goal and end date, then break it down into bite-sized chunks, and then go rock it.



Goals take effort.

But without dedicating time to your goals, then you won’t get the results you want.

Which is better?  Study 30 minutes every day or cram it all in before the big event.

We have all done the cramming before, we all know it doesn’t work.

If you want to achieve it, you need to put in the time. No if but’s or maybe.



Notice how I didn’t say food or fuel.  That’s right, I’m saying nutrition.

Why nutrition?  Because what you eat (or don’t eat) will have a huge impact on your training and your performance.

A bodybuilder will eat more protein, but an endurance athlete may consume more carbohydrates.

Only you will know what works for you, your body and your end goal.
