We have all heard of the S.M.A.R.T way to get results. After all, a Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely approach can only lead to good things. Whether it relates to work, life or fitness. For now, let’s see how the SMART approach to fitness boot camp delivers results.
Select a Specific fitness program
You need to decide if you want to work out at a gym, health club or a boot camp. While there are many places in Chicago that promise a number of benefits, do some research and find out which one suits you best. Though personally, I do find that a boot camp has a lot of advantages over the others.
For starters, it’s never boring at a boot camp, it’s tough but you have a lot of people to motivate you, it’s cost effective, and it’s fun. But then again, choose the program that you are most comfortable with, whether it’s fitness bootcamp or another option that you find more desirable in your Chicago locality.
Setting a Measurable Boot Camp Goal
Before you choose a boot camp way to fitness or any other, you need to evaluate the present and then set a goal that is specific. Not ‘ I want to be fit’ or ‘I want to be healthy’ but ‘I want a waist size of XX cms’ or ‘I need to drop XX pounds”. A good boot camp workout requires you to spend 45 minutes a day, 5-days a week, so make sure you have the time for it. Most boot camps in Chicago do offer different time slots making it easier for you to manage your time.
Once you decide which one you want to go, go through a Pre-bootcamp fitness evaluation and speak to the instructor to find out how much you can effectively lose given your current fitness levels and weight.
Your boot camp goal should be Achievable and Realistic
There is no point in saying you want to drop 45 pounds in 2 weeks, because like it or not, getting fit and losing weight, the boot camp way or any other, requires time and patience. On the other hand if you have to lose 10 pounds, then you don’t need 16 weeks for that. A smart goal would be one where you have to push yourself just a little bit harder to meet it.
Timelines are necessary to meet goals at a boot camp
There is no point in starting if you don’t know when you are going to reach your fitness goals. A boot camp will work best when there is an end-time.
Go find yourself a good bootcamp in the Chicago locality you live in and set your goals SMART.
