Hi,
Martin is trying to find an efficient way of reaching his exercise goals.

I wonder if the underlined part is correct. It seems ok but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance.

    It's fine.

    But I might say: ... an efficient way to reach his exercise goals (it's just shorter and neater and means exactly the same).

    Thank you, Chez.
    I agree that "to reach" is the better choice. However, I still have one similar question.
    What do you think of the sentence below?
    Martin is trying to find the most efficient way of reaching his exercise goals.

    I was told that with "the" in the sentence, the underlined part is considered to be wrong. It should be "Martin is trying to find the most efficient way to reach his exercise goals."

    What do you think?
