Setting Goals
  • When you work out you should be setting goals for yourself.
  • Join a fitness club or any kind of fitness program to help.
  • They should neither be too hard or too easy.
  • Setting high goals is not good, because they can bring negativity when they are not met.
  • So when setting goals make them realistic and achievable.

  • Each stretch should start of with a jog or a run, to warm up the muscles.
