PHYSICAL FITNESS

A commitment to physical fitness

comes with lifelong benefits. You might be surprised at what you‘re capable of.

Winning is nice, but it's not everything.

What's really important is measurable growth.

Whether you're committing to improve skills in a sport or activity you already do or learn something completely new, there are so many opportunities to grow. You have to expect big things of yourself and put in the work. It's amazing what commitment can do.

Your activities can be competitive but your goal cannot.


Example: “I will improve my basketball skills so that my free-throw percentage will increase from 35 to 40 percent. Within one year I hope to advance from junior varsity to the level of a varsity player.”
 

This goal does not work: “I will become the captain of the basketball team;” (Becoming captain of the team depends on the decisions of others.)

Your goal can involve a new activity or achievement of a new level of performance in an ongoing activity. Be sure to include relevant physical fitness statistics to ensure that a challenging, objective goal can be achieved.

 

When relevant, use specific details such as:
experience level, weight, heart rate, respiration, specific skills, times and distances, batting or hitting averages, average scores
