12. MAKE IT REAL

(3) SKILL

In terms of HOW we would improve our fitness, we make decisions:

– New regimens of exercise should be preceded by either a review of physical risk factors or a medical clearance.

– Workout should consist of warm-up, strength, aerobic and cool-down periods.

– Fitness habits involve gradual increases in strength and endurance.

– Variety is key to maintaining a long-term fitness lifestyle.

(4) PROGRESS

In terms of WHAT indicates benefit or improvement, we look for results.

– Self-monitoring of heart rate ensures healthy aerobic conditioning.

– Simple fitness log provides feedback for weight, strength, and endurance measures.

– Active duty physical fitness assessments are likely to show improvement.

– Experience of stamina and physical strength should  improve.

– Reward yourself for improvements.

Improved physical fitness is just one stress management goal that can be obtained by maintaining your motivational health.
