Let’s get real about fitness goals

Set realistic goals & get started on your way to success at Kennedy Club Fitness

Work, school, family, friends, health, fitness – we have so many obligations that we need to focus on during our everyday lives. All take a certain level of commitment and, oftentimes, we set goals to help us attain a certain level of accomplishment in each of the above-mentioned areas. At Kennedy Club Fitness, our dedicated staff may not be able to help with all of your work and family goals, but one thing we take pride in offering is the ability to guide our club members as they embark upon and maintain their fitness and overall health goals. 

Over time, we have learned a thing or two about setting daily, weekly, monthly, and lifetime goals. Some of the most important ideas to keep in mind include:

  • Remember to set realistic goals
  • Start with small goals & continually add to your list 
  • Realize your personal lifestyle
  • Don’t compare yourself to others
  • Don’t set yourself up for failure by expecting to exercise every day
  • If you miss a day or fall short of a goal occasionally, don’t quit altogether
  • Reward yourself when you accomplish a goal

Just as important as setting goals is the importance of developing a plan for being successful so that you may accomplish those goals. At each Kennedy Club Fitness location, we offer complimentary orientation sessions – be sure to take advantage of all the knowledge our fitness counselors have to offer. 

Why is that important? You wouldn’t start on a new construction project without guidance nor would you take up a new sport without first understanding the rules of the game – would you? It’s no different with starting a new fitness routine or setting out to fulfill your goal of losing or gaining weight, adding muscle mass or learning how to fit exercise time into your schedule. That’s why, at Kennedy Club Fitness, we:

  • Help you plan for success
  • Offer professional guidance 
  • Set you up on a personalized program
  • Show you how to follow a program on your own
  • Provide motivation & encouragement
  • Offer 3 personal training sessions to all new members
  • Offer dozens of classes to keep you in the groove

Perhaps the most often-overlooked tool we provide at Kennedy Club Fitness is accountability. We want you to succeed – whether your goal is to work out on our Nautilus equipment 3 times each week, learn some new Zumba moves or swim daily laps in our Olympic-size heated pools – we are here to help. We provide that extra ingredient for success – accountability – so when we don’t see you for awhile, we miss you, and one of our friendly fitness counselors will give you a call to see how we can get you back on track.

If it’s been awhile since you’ve been inside one of our clubs, we invite you to stop by or call today and check out what’s new at Kennedy Club Fitness. With family-friendly hours and activities, childcare and more, there’s no better time than now to start or re-start those fitness goals. Take a class, take a swim, join a basketball, racquetball or weight-training league, or plug in those earphones and work out in silence – mix it up, stay active and, above all, have fun!
