Achieve Your Goal With a Focused Mindset

Sometimes, a great desire is not enough to achieve what you want. You also need to have focus and exceptional motivation to be successful. Whether you have a fitness goal, a sports goal, or a career goal, having mental focus can help you become more productive and sustain your momentum. It can be your secret weapon to achieving success faster. 

If focus is what you lack, you do not have to worry. Like your body, the mind can be trained as well. Start with these tips, and you will be off to a good start.

Tip 1: Have your “Why”

Every goal has a “why.” Remembering why you started can help you keep going. When you feel discouraged or get distracted, go back to the main reason behind your goal. Why did you enroll yourself in the gym? Why did you choose this career? Finding the answer to your “why” can help get you back on track. Be clear with your goals whenever you set them so you can have a strong reason to look back at. 

Tip 2: Do it for you

Other people set goals because of peer pressure or because they fancy other people doing the same. If you want to have sexy abs because your partner wants you to, then you are bound to fail. People who do things just to please others will not have a genuine motivation to push through with their objectives.

You are in charge of doing all the hard work, so make sure you are doing the job for you. That is when you will truly appreciate all your efforts and when you will find the will to do it.

Tip 3: Motivate yourself

There is always inspiration in every corner. If you want a toned body, look for a role model and learn how they did it. You two may have different journeys, but seeing someone else succeed in their endeavor will help keep you moving forward. If they did it, you will, too! Plus, you will definitely learn something from them—from how they frame their mindset to useful tips and tricks. 

You should also learn to let go of people who give off negative vibes on your journey. If you have a social media friend whose words affect you negatively, do yourself a favor and learn to unfollow. 

Tip 4: Keep on Learning

The key to the success of most experts is their continued journeys to discovering and learning. Even the most excellent teachers and instructors are still hungry for more knowledge. As soon as you feel that you know everything you need to know about the topic, you are done. Have the mindset of a student who is eager to learn some more. That is how you fully grow.


The most successful people are those who are highly focused. They pay attention to what is in the present and what is in front of them. Focus helps them become more fully engaged in the activities they need to do at the moment. It leads to more work done and better life events later. If you want to meet your goals successfully, follow the tips listed in this article.

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years.  He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer.  I would highly recommend Chad.  He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.

I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.

When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!

Giuseppe Leonelli

I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!

Jonas Escobedo

Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!

I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!

I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
