Wow 2017 has been an amazing year at PDXstrength. It’s truly been an honor to be apart of your fitness journey and we are so excited for what is in store for 2018. Reflect on how far you have come this year, and be proud of your accomplishments no matter how big or small. When you get some extra time, write down a few goals that you’d like to work towards this year. A SMART goal is a goal that is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time based. Pick one or two goals, and make a plan! Here is a great template to use: SMART GOAL SHEET If you’d like more direction, accountability or help creating a game plan please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can grab a coffee or a drink and I’ll help you personally set up a plan to smash your 2018 goals! My email is jocelyn@pdxtrength.
Also big thanks to everyone that donated a toy for our toy drive! It was pretty cool to drop off 50 toys for kids in need. We hope you had a great holiday season and are ready to get back in the gym and start working on your 2018 goals.
