One of the deadliest traits when it comes to continuing fitness is one of indecisiveness. While most people walk into a gym without a clear idea of what they really want (or more importantly, what they need) when it comes to their fitness, a good coach should be able to steer them in the right direction when it comes to making good decisions about their goals and prospective outcomes. The key there is that while a good coach can give them all of the tools and information needed to make those good decisions, the responsibility of making the decision rests with them.
Combating indecisiveness is one of the reasons we encourage everyone to set concrete short to mid-range goals. The Goals board at the gym is the perfect way to help you make a decision (e.g. I want to accomplish this specific thing by this specific date) and to motivate/encourage you to stick with it. Not sure what to put up there? Don't worry, your coaches can help you come up with a good goal... but you're the one who's going to have to decide to commit to it! And if you've already written a goal up there, have you completed it yet??? If so, it's time to come up with a new one.
What's one of your specific goals when it comes to fitness? Sound off in the comments below!

Tabata is 8 rounds of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. You'll spend all 8 rounds at one movement before moving on to the next. You'll have a 1 minute rest between each movement. Each movement is individually scored.
