Here's a photo of my Mum who turns 80 next year hiking in the Lapland wilderness last month. Mum's at home exercise program is a daily physio program which she does about 3-4 times a week (she admits to being lazy), a half hour walk every couple of days and the monthly 3km walk with me at the Women and Girls jogalongs.
See how a simple fitness program can be hugely effective - when your program aligns to your goal?
So, having set your SMART goals (refer to earlier blog 'goal setting 101') you are motivated to go ahead and realise those goals.
Of course a little guidance helps, like the red trail post in the picture, to get you going in the right direction. I'm lucky to have Coach Dave to remind me that if I want to be able to do a 10km run I need to get out there and run for 10 kms! Coaches, Mentors and yes, Personal Trainers can all help you, but remember that they are your goals.
