What’s Your Gol?

To mark the full launch of the Soccer Fitness Gols app on the App Store and Google Play, we are asking our community to share your fitness gols and, most importantly, why you’ve set them.

Please post a brief video describing your goal and tag us on Facebook and Twitter (#whatsyourgol).  In your video, please also send a shout out to 3 people you know to encourage them to do the same.

You can check out my personal video on our Facebook page.

Workout # 3 – Fitting In

It’s a little late, but Thursday this week I squeezed in a quick workout after work.  While this may not seem like much, for me, it was the first time in over a year I’ve done a workout on a week night.   This is a start, a good start.  Tomorrow, Workout # 4 and a chance to see if I’ve made any improvements so far …

Workout # 2 – Yes You Can

It took 6 days, but I finished Workout # 2 of the Strength Program – Semi-Pro Level today.  I’m still on-track with 2 workouts per week, just barely.  Next week will be tough to get the two workouts done (I’ve got a tough week at work); however, that’s the test:  can you make time for what’s important?  As Barak Obama said … you know.

Workout # 1 – No Better Time than Today!

Like many of you reading our blog, soccer was (and is) a big part of my life.  However, over the years, I’ve transitioned from competitive varsity / semi-pro athlete to a beer-league hopeful to a couch-potato fan.

Well, no more.  I’ve decided to take up what I’m calling the “Soccer Fitness Gols Challenge” and get back into shape so that I can once again enjoy the Beautiful Game as it was meant to be played, not watched!

Yesterday, I completed Workout # 1 of the Soccer Fitness Gols app’s strength program (semi-pro level).  The workout was a challenge, but now I have a good baseline of where I’m at and a plan to get where I want to be.

Over the next 8 weeks, I’ll be posting my progress here …

July 5, 2014:

– Squat hold:  120.8 seconds

– Front plank hold: 121.7 seconds

– Push-ups in 60 seconds:  40

– Crunches in 60 seconds:  60

I’d like to encourage all of you, regardless of what’s holding you back, to take up the Challenge and get started with your own fitness “gols” today as well!  Please send us your comments about your own fitness Challenge, including your baseline, your “gols”, and your progress / results.
