Fitness goals for health and wellness in 2017

Fitness goals for health and wellness in 2017

Start your New Year’s health-kick with a bang with these five goal-setting tips with Team-Re-Claim’s Grace Lee.

Goal-setting is very important. It can be the difference between achieving success. Here’s some simple advice I give my clients when they start a training programme.

 

Make specific goals

A goal needs to be as specific as possible so you can work towards it and achieve it. Whether you want to get stronger, faster or smaller, having a baseline can point you in the right direction. For example, a bad goal would be “get healthy”, while a specific goal would be to lose a certain amount of weight.

 

Have measurable goals

If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. A measurable goal would be to focus on losing 10 pounds. Once you have that, you can quantify your progress and you can establish a time frame. Your goal may be to master a pull-up, run five miles or go to the gym four days a week. Whatever it is, you should have a definite way of knowing when you’ve reached it.

 

Fitness goals for health and wellness

Make sure your goals are attainable

While it can be helpful to set long-term goals, you need a more achievable goal on the horizon to keep you on track. You want to start small and see early results which encourages long-term consistency. If you set something too lofty straight away, it might be discouraging to not make progress as fast as you would like. You should also consider the size of your goal. For example, a goal of losing 30 pounds in one month just isn’t going to happen. You’re better off setting smaller goals that are easier to attain.

 

Set relevant goals

Finding your ‘why’ is easier said than done. Ask yourself, is this goal worthwhile and am I motivated to do it? Creating goals with motivation attached to it can give a bit of relevancy to what you are doing. For example, you may want to lose 10 pounds in two months in time for your wedding.

 

Be time conscious

Being strict about a deadline creates urgency. It’s also important not to set your sights too far in advance. If you give yourself four months to lose 10 pounds, that might be too long because you don’t have enough incentive to start work immediately. Instead, consider setting smaller goals along the way. Alternatively, maybe running a marathon is your long-term goal, but if you’ve never been a runner, signing up for a marathon that’s one month away is not realistic.

You should also be honest with yourself about what you’re able to accomplish in a given time frame. If losing 10 pounds is at the top of your list and you’re willing to make sacrifices in your social life and at work, you can attain that more quickly. And if not? That’s completely fine, you just need to adjust your expectations so they’re in line with your schedule and commitments.

Re-Claim’s Stem Cell Therapy Cover Explained

 

Grace Lee Explains Re-Claim’s Stem Cell Therapy Cover

 

Remember how hard it was staying motivated during your first few months of serious training? All those long hours in the gym, strict diets and nutrition plans?

Unfortunately, it only takes one bad injury and your progress is derailed. Without specialised cover it can be very frustrating.

Just ask Team Re-Claim’s Grace Lee.

Grace is a personal trainer and works and trains everyday. There are times where she feels like quitting. But with Re-Claim, she has the confidence to keep pushing harder.

“I do get tired and crave unhealthy food and yes, I do get injured from my workouts. But I accept these moments as part of life. I get back on track and keep pursuing my quest for progress.

“Therefore it is important to know that if I suffer a serious injury, I can get the best treatment possible to recover quickly.”

 

Stem cell therapy explained

 

With Stem Cell Therapy, “I have the best cover possible”

 

Unlike most other insurance companies, Re-Claim covers Grace for Stem Cell Therapy at Kuala Lumpur Sports Medicine Centre (KLSMC) should she have an accident.

Traditional surgery can be quite complex and recovery is painful, requiring a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility.

But with Stem Cell Therapy, Grace can return to action in just six weeks.

Expert doctors use Grace’s own blood stem cells, coupled with surgical intervention and physiotherapy to regenerate the damaged cartilage in her shoulder, speeding up the recovery process.

Even more amazing is Grace can harvest her own stem cells for any future stem cell therapy, meaning if she has another devastating injury 6-months’ later, she’s equipped to begin the recovery.

 

 

Re-Claim is Malaysia’s next-level, comprehensive sports accident insurance plan.

Grace represents the ‘non-athlete’ fitness enthusiasts, who push their limits daily in search for a healthier lifestyle.

Wearable Technology

Sales on items such as fitness trackers, pedometers and heart rate monitors will continue to soar in 2017.

 

Bodyweight Training

Fitness in 2017

We believe more and more people will be staying at home rather than paying large gym membership fees this year.

Simple push up and sit up variations as well as planks and other home exercises are a great alternative. They’re also perfect for lunchtime workouts and when you are travelling.

 

HIIT

The need for a fast workout is growing and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is the perfect solution. You can burn more calories in 20 to 30 minutes than you can in a two hour jog.

Their classes combines the benefits of high performance training and live heart rate tracking into a truly fun group-based workout suitable for all fitness levels.

 

Educated & Experienced Fitness Professionals

With injuries becoming more prevalent, the need for fitness professionals who are educated in exercise science and movement will increase in the next 12 months. Finding someone who can create a science-backed programme to reduce your risk of injury is important.

 

Strength Training

Fitness in 2017 strength training

The appeal of strength training for both men and women and people of all ages is growing. Strength training is crucial to keeping our bodies healthy, especially as we age as it preserves muscle mass and increases our metabolism.

 

Group Training

Fitness in 2017

Everyone loves a bit of fun and group training is the perfect way to stay motivated and reach your fitness goals.

 

Exercise Is Medicine

People are starting to realise the best remedy to illness is exercise. Exercise is proven to improve your memory, sleep, strength and flexibility, work performance, energy levels, immune system and can reduce your chances of heart disease and cancer.

 

Yoga

Fitness in 2017 Yoga Ropes

Yoga has gained in popularity in Malaysia over the last five to ten years and will continue to see beginners and veterans roll out the mat. Like the point above, yoga is great for improving quality of sleep and relieving stress.

 

Personal Training

Keep a watch on the number of new gyms and personal trainers around Malaysia. We believe the sport, fitness and exercise industry will take off in the next 12 months with numerous athletes and fitness professionals starting various PT businesses.

 

Exercise & Weight Loss

It’s no new fact that nutrition and exercise are vital to weight loss. As a result, we believe more and more people will be conscious of remaining healthy. Finding an activity that can improve your aerobic capacity and physical health, as well as being fun, is the key.
