How to Set Long Term Fitness Goals

It is important to set long-term fitness goals so you can have an idea of the body you want to achieve. Long-term results would be anywhere from three months to a year. When making your goals, make sure they are realistic. Don't set silly goals of 50 pounds in one month to attend a reunion.  Here are some example of long-term fitness goals you can set.
