What’s on Your Fitness Bucket List?
Posted By The FIRM Master Instructor Team On December 31, 2013 @ 1:55 pm In Fitness | No Comments
Many of us keep a list of things we’d like to do before we reach a certain milestone. With my 40th birthday looming, I spent some time evaluating what I would like to include on my own so-called “bucket list ” as I move forward in life. My list consisted of things like traveling to specific places, learning to cook my grandmother’s dressing and actually reading many of the classic literature titles currently gathering dust on my book shelf.
But what about a bucket list for exercise? Have you ever thought about keeping a running list  of your dreams for fitness? Making a list of your long-term goals along with some smaller ones along the way could be just what you need to keep you motivated for years to come!
To begin, make a list of things you’ve already accomplished in the world of fitness. After all, you may discover that you’ve actually done some pretty amazing things as you’ve sweated it out through the years.
The key to a successful fitness life is to remember that it’s a journey, not a final destination. By keeping record of your accomplishments — no matter how big or small — and by keeping a list of things you’d like to do in the future, you’ll keep your motivation up and avoid getting bored.
Share your fitness bucket list below! You may even get some new ideas for your own list by reading those of others.
