Setting Fitness Goals Feat. Garret Barbush | EP. 63

On EP. 63 of the Men of Iron Podcast, Garret joins Chad to talk about physical fitness and the importance of taking care of your body. The guys provide practical advice to creating realistic and attainable fitness goals.

God wants us to perform well in the areas of life. He wants us to glorify HIM with our bodies. And let’s be honest men, we don’t want to be the dad that can’t run around with his kids because he’s out of shape.

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, (ESV)

Goal setting IS and should be invigorating for men. Setting goals helps trigger new behaviors, helps guides your focus, and helps you sustain that momentum in life. Goal setting gives a challenge and challenges sharpen our intentionality. While your fitness goals should challenge you, they should also be realistic and attainable. Set yourself up for success!
