Finding time for an exercise regimen in your busiest day

Published 11:40 am Friday, May 25, 2012

I train all types of folks, who have all kinds of crazy schedules. Some have busy careers, some have busy family lives and some have both.
There are so many reasons people with the best of intentions don’t think they have time to exercise. Some don’t workout because they’re just exhausted after their daily activities.
Today, I’m going to show you how you can fit exercise into even your busiest day. First, have a plan, then prepare. Have your gym bag packed and ready to go the night before you leave for work or school.
Have your exercise program planned as well. You might want to consult a fitness professional for this. Make sure your exercise regimen is clear and concise. You hear so many who talk about their exercise routine in terms of hours “I’m in the gym an hour or two hours at a time,” but that needn’t be the case. No matter your fitness level, you can get a great workout in 15-20 minutes, if you work hard and have a great plan.
Make sure you perform both aerobic and weight training exercises. Yes, you need both for health and fitness.
If at all possible, workout in the morning. I absolutely hate mornings with a passion (unless I’m going fishing), but my workout partner, who happens to be a morning person, and I do our workout mornings, because after training people all day, I’ve not the energy or motivation to exercise.
