January enews: SMART Resolutions with your Y

The New Year is a great time to set personal goals and your Y is here to help! From daily group fitness classes and open swim times to disease prevention programming and pick-up basketball games, the Y community is here to help you achieve whatever you set your mind to!

When setting goals, consider setting SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic & timely) goals to help you focus, evaluate and accomplish what you set out to do. This framework can help turn vague goals into actionable ones!

We asked our staff to share their SMART goals with us for 2023. Keep reading to hear what they said!

Take a moment to set a few SMART goals for yourself—you'll thank yourself later!
