We recently noticed that users are setting goals exponentially better then there current result. For example, a person with a 12 minute Fran is setting a goal for a sub 3 minute Fran. Is that a goal or a dream? We think realistic goals are ones that you can achieve within a month or two. Although we like our goals feature we realize something has to be done. Below are some thoughts we are using to redesign and restructure the goals feature.
Decide when you are going to achieve your goal. We think this will help set more realistic goals. You have to get to point “B” before you go from point “A” to point “C”. When you set a goal you should keep that in mind. There has to be a point where you either achieved or failed your goal.
Simple Design, But Constant Reminder
-Show goals on user’s calendar
-Coach/Trainer can see and set goals
-There should be one place where a user can view and set goals.
Goals Limit (Need Input From You Guys)
We have been discussing this and going back and forth. We feel that it’s counter productive to set too many goals. The idea is to set goals, achieve them and then set more. We are leaning towards 5 goals (not including days worked out per week and weight/lean mass). This way, depending on your privacy, your trainer and other members can see what you are concentrating on and encourage you. We would love to hear your thoughts on this.
We update the site once a week and will roll this feature out either this friday night or next friday night. Why? Well, according to our stats, you probably don’t work out on friday night.
