10 Tips to Set CrossFit Goals for 2020 (& Actually Achieve Them)

Whether it’s to lose weight, gain muscle, get fitter or improve how you feel about yourself, these tips do not offer quick fixes or easy routes, they simply describe what actually works.

The new year is almost here, so what CrossFit goals and targets have you set yourself for 2020? Whatever the scale of your ambitions, these 10 tips will help you achieve them, provided you are willing to put in the work.


When it comes to hitting the goals that you have decided to set for yourself, there is simply no substitute for consistency. This doesn’t mean always performing at 100% (we all have bad days), it means showing up and doing the work.

Think realistically about how much time you can set aside for training. Whether that is 2 nights a week, or twice a day for 6 days a week, this can help you determine what is, and what is not, realistic based on your circumstances.

With intelligent programming, volume and time spent performing the movements and exercises that you wish to get better at, will help you to hit your goals.

Don’t overestimate what you can do in a month, but don’t underestimate what can be achieved in a year.


This is important because you need to make sure your goal is in line with your values. Identify your core priorities and make sure your goal doesn’t detract from your overall values. Instead, your goal should support your values and work in harmony with them.


Identify what it is that your really want. Be very specific; don’t leave any room for questioning later down the road. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. Once you identify what it is that you really want (this can be a challenge within itself), then set your goal.
