Goals. Everyone's got one (or three!) and no two are ever the same. Maybe you’ve always wanted to finish a half-marathon or maybe you're looking to nail fifty push-ups at the gym–and if you happen to catch the eye of your Monday night gym crush, even better! Whatever yours is, there’s nothing like that feeling you get once you’ve reached it. It’s proof of all the hard work you’ve put in, so brag about it a little! This week we checked in with our Twitter followers to see what fitness milestone they’re most proud of. Check out some of their impressive achievements to get a little inspiration for your next goal.

@laura267n: Running a half-marathon, twice!

@theamotinada: Losing 50 pounds by simply introducing myself to a healthy, active lifestyle!

@mntnbnd: I have two moments that are my proudest: Doing 22 pull-ups in the gym (today!) and my first place female finish in a 5K.

@RxBethOntheRun: Finishing the NYC Half-Marathon in March, my first half!

@TreeStand_Wife: I ran and completed my first 5K a couple weeks ago.

@MsRuncredible: Running my first marathon, the Cincinnati @RunFlyingPig in 4:10:25.
