10 Realistic Fitness Goals, Recommended by Personal Trainers

Whether you're looking to maintain a consistent workout routine, improve your endurance, or build muscle, there's a goal for everyone on this list—no matter their fitness level. By Rebecca Strong, Medically Reviewed by Amber Brenza, CPT February 07, 2022 With the first month of 2022 behind us, many may be losing steam when it comes to sticking to their New Year's resolutions. Why?

Attainable: This goal can be feasibly reached within the set time frame. Very few people could train for a marathon in two weeks, but many could over a couple of months.

Timely: The goal has a deadline whether it's four weeks or six months.
