What are your goals for 2010?

As 2009 draws to a close it’s nice to look back and see what you’ve accomplished over the past year and set some goals for what you want to achieve in the coming year…

2009 has been a really good year for me, in fact it was the most successful year ever for www.LeeHayward.com and this is despite a down economy. This just goes to show that we really are in control of our own lives and we don’t have to fall victim to the crap that goes on around us. We can grab the bull by the horns and make it happen!

Some of the major things that I’ve really focused on over the past year was putting out a ton of valuable muscle building and fat loss information via video. In fact my YouTube Channel now has over 135+ videos and most of them were added within the last year.

I’ve also been doing the weekly live Total Fitness Bodybuilding Talk Show for over a year now. This has been a huge success and a great way for me to interact with my followers. It’s the next best thing to hanging out and chatting in person!

Now while all the videos and talk shows are great in terms of helping people like you get in your best shape ever by getting top quality training and nutritional information. They also represent a huge jump for me in my personal growth as well. You see I’m naturally a very shy person and just a few years ago the thought of speaking in public or doing a live video scared the living sh!t out of me! (I’m not kidding)

But I’ve worked on that part of myself a lot by simply biting the bullet and doing the videos, doing the talk shows, etc. I’ve also been attending Toastmasters for a year and a half now. Toastmasters is a club where people get together to practice public speaking by giving speeches and performing various speaking leadership roles during the meetings. If you are looking for a great way to improve your confidence, speaking skills, etc. than I highly recommend them. Just google up “Toastmasters” to find a club in your area.

Some other successes I’ve had during 2009 were writing 2 books “Your First Bodybuilding Competition” and “Blast Your Biceps”. Both of which are getting awesome reviews. I have to say that these are by far my best muscle building and fat loss programs yet. There is a ton of killer stuff included in these packages and it’s all based on real world experience. Not fluff and filler like a lot of so called “bodybuilding programs”.

And recently I revamped the www.LeeHayward.com website (a much needed upgrade if I do say so myself). We were long overdue for a website makeover and I’m very pleased with it thus far.

Now 2009 wasn’t all rosy… One big disappointment was with losing our old Total Fitness Bodybuilding Message Board. This was a forum that had over 5 years worth of content and several thousand members which my website hosting company pretty much just wiped off the face of the Internet. The software was old and instead of giving me a heads up they just deleted the whole friggen thing.

I went through all the jiggs and the reels of trying to get it restored to no avail. But rather then getting upset over this, I’m simply going to go full speed ahead and create a brand new interactive Total Fitness Bodybuilding membership site with a discussion forum as well as providing special “member only” content and special “member only” coaching programs. That’s something you can look forward to seeing added to the site in early 2010.

Another goal of mine is to return to the bodybuilding competition stage and compete in the 2010 Atlantic Canadian Bodybuilding Championships in my best contest shape ever! I’m super pumped about this and I’ll be tracking my entire contest prep and posting my progress here on my blog.

I’m also working on creating a new training DVD set showing the exact workouts, nutrition plan, supplements, etc. that I’m using to get in ripped contest shape!

So that’s an overview of what I’ve done this past year and some of my goals for 2010…
How about you? What are some of your goals that you’d like to achieve?

Please post your goals in the comment section below! Publishing your goals for others to see will get the wheels turning towards making your goals a reality.

So go for it and post your goals!
Id like to see at least 100 people lay it on the line and share their goals below, let’s kick some ass and make 2010 our best year ever!

all the best,
Lee Hayward

  • I have dropped 35-40 pounds this last fall. My goal for 2010 is to develop my six pack abss and get down to at least 10% body fat.

  • I am a martial artist, so first and foremost, I need muscular endurance, speed, and conditioning. So my goal for 2010, by the end of the year, 365 days, I’d like to be able to do 100 pushups in one minute. I’m also looking to rank up in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, get a book written, and start teaching martial arts as a career instead of volunteering.

    Hi Lee,
    My goal is to get rid of whats left of my manboobs and shape my chest. Also I aim to make more time for myself to do my workouts at home and not let myself get distracted from my main goal of getting a decent shape all over.
    Thanks for all your great tips Lee.

    My goal for 2010 is to increase strength and increase my muscle mass by a further 14-21pound and decrease body fat to around 8%. I want to reach a body weight of 240pound and hopefully enter a beginners competition.

  • You know what would be really cool and take this whole thing up a notch, is to dig up this post up next year and see how many actually followed through and made their goals a reality. It would be an awesome feeling to be able to say at the end of the year that you achieved or even surpassed your goals for 2010!

  • Lyle B

    I’m 22 and weighing in at 225lbs at about 15% BF. My goal for 2010 is to take my overall strength up on my core lifts by no less than 15%, (bench= 315lbs, squat=425lbs, deadlift=405lbs) and to be more consistant in my routines. 2009 was not a good year for me int he gym. I was very lazy and need to stick to my routine more strictly and quit making excuses. I have a baby on the way this summer and I want to be able to be in the best shape possible for my family and even more for myself. I’m in the militarya nd I am applying for officer. THe better physical shape im in, the better off ill be during the interviewing process. So my ultimate goal is to gain 15lbs, 15%, and a self respect back.
