SMART Goal Setting

Los Angeles, CA – 12/17/2013

As the year comes to aclose, many begin to think about goals for the coming year and how they canaccomplish certain tasks.  Weight loss orengaging in a healthier lifestyle is often one of these goals, but many findthey fall off the wagon or have a hard time getting started with the goals theyset, and thus end up abandoning them all together.  In this case, it’s time to try a new way ofthinking and try a smarter approach to goal setting.


Using a techniquereferred to by ACE fitness counselors as SMART goal setting may help those whohave trouble starting on goals as well as those who abandon their aims halfwaythrough the race.  Follow the guidelinesbelow to set reasonable, attainable goals for lifestyle changes and one may besurprised at what they can accomplish.


  • Specific – a goal should be clearand easy to understand.  Rather thanmaking a goal to “get healthy,” define exactly what is to be accomplished.  Losing weight, start exercising, stop smokingare all specific goals that can be measured and aimed for easily.
  • Measureable – provide enoughinformation to be able to track progress on the goal.  Making a goal measurable means adding anumber or specific target in mind to aim for.
  • Attainable – before coming up with anumber or target, make sure it’s a goal that can be reached.  Aim high, but not too high to set oneself upfor disappointment.  Instead of settingan extreme goal of losing X number of pounds in a certain amount of time, trysetting a benchmark such as “5 percent of body weight” without a time limit.
  • Relevant – set goals that areimportant to one’s lifestyle at the moment. A person must make a goal relevant to themselves rather than allowingothers to influence their choices and aims.
  • Time-Bound – provide an end pointfor motivation.  An example would be tolose 5 percent of body weight in 3 months, or lose 1 ½ pounds per week.  These are attainable, measureable, andreachable goals all in one sentence.

Goal setting is apowerful motivational tool, and setting the right goals can get a person ontrack for a healthier lifestyle not only for the coming year, but for all theyears they have ahead of them.
