Life is busy. I certainly understand that much. But neglecting exercise because of a demanding work schedule is silly. Here are 3 ways for you to stay fit with a busy work schedule.
This does not have to be CrossFit gym (although those are the best) but fitness classes usually run on a time schedule and are usually done in under an hour. The best part about group classes is that the workouts are already made up for you. So you do not have to worry about searching the internet for a workout or trying to come up with one yourself. You just show up and workout.
Chose a Program that is Encompassing:
When you are short on time each day each workout needs to have a purpose and hit as many aspects of fitness as possible. What I mean is if you chose a program that is just running you are usually only going to be better at running and rely on that one exercise to reach your goals. Chose a program that uses exercises like running, free weights, calisthenics and core work all at the same time. By combining regimens you can get an more effective workout in a shorter period of time.
Plan and Track Your Fitness:
Before you start your week look at your schedule and plan out the days you want to work out. (you should look to have at least three days of exercise to really see results) Put them on your calendar and do not let anything get in your way. After each workout write it down or use a fitness app in your phone. This is often an overlooked part of fitness. If you do not know your numbers you can never grow your numbers. Write down your weights or times you used each workout and when something like that appears again you can refer back to it and try and improve.
Keep you fitness fun and something that you want to do. We all know that we should be doing it but getting started is the hardest part. If you are looking for somewhere new to start your fitness journey give us a call or sign up for a FREE ONE ON ONE INTRO OR A FREE CLASS!
