What does being fit even mean?

This is an important question to ask yourself before you start a training program, or even part way through one as your thoughts around the subject may have changed.  What 'fit' means to me will undoubtedly be different from what it means to you.  To me, it means being able to keep up with my son, having the energy to pursue active hobbies, and being able to move heavy stuff as well.

But what does it mean to you? 

It might mean being able to run a 5k race for charity.  Or just to be able to do 10 full push-ups without stopping.  It might start out being to lose some weight but then morph into getting really strong once you are happy with your weight.

The reasoning behind the answer to this question is just as important as the actual answer as this will be the driver which will push you to achieve the goal.  While the answer may not be important, it is still vital that you ask the question before beginning any training program.  Not only that, but you need to keep asking the question along the way.

Sit down and check in with yourself after a couple of months of training.  What does being fit mean to you? Has it changed?  Are you still aiming for the same goal?  Is the training moving you closer to your goals?

Don't be afraid to ask these questions, it will help you to get more out of your training and set you up for greater success as well.

What is your definition of fit?  I would love to hear from you.  Send me a message through my website and let me know.
