If you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, then setting goals is crucial to keep you motivated. Still, you don’t want to set unrealistic goals that make exercise frustrating. Here are some realistic fitness goals that you can set to keep you motivated.

Walk More

While it may not be the most intense workout, walking comes with many benefits. Not only is it a form of cardiovascular activity, but you’ll also be able to enjoy some fresh air and take in the beauty of the nature around you, perhaps giving you a heightened appreciation for the outdoors.

Finish a Race

While you may still be a long way off from competing in a full marathon, there’s no harm in doing some fun runs and walks. This will allow you to build your way up to more serious competitions, thereby building your fitness in the process. You could also consider doing this with some friends. For all you know, you’ll win a medal.

Take a Class

No matter what type of fitness level you are or workouts you like, there’s bound to be a fitness class for you. Not only do classes ensure that you complete a full workout while receiving proper instruction, but you’ll also be able to socialize with other participants, helping to motivate each other and perhaps even forming friendships.
