Making progress towards your goal is more than simply adding more weight, more resistance, or more repetitions to the exercises you started with. Another common mistake we see people make is doing the same exercises in the same order every time they go to the gym. You can only increase the amount of weight, increase the number of repetitions, or increase the resistance until a point when your body reaches a plateau or fully adapts to that particular workout.
Goal setting is critical to achieve the fitness results you desire. Not having a goal would be like studying for a test without knowing what material you will be tested on. Setting a goal sets a course for progression and keeps you accountable. We believe in setting fitness-oriented goals that are measurable and have a deadline.
