How to Fit Your Workout Into Your Busy Day

How to Fit Your Workout Into Your Busy Day
(Julianne Hough/ Source: PacificCoastNews.com)"Think outside the box. If you don't have an hour to sweat at the gym or sneak in your favorite class, steal time throughout the day and get moving! It's all about making smart choices: walk those twenty blocks rather than taking the subway; hop off the escalator and take the stairs; do a power walk with your friend instead of catching up over coffee. There are tons of opportunities to work out, just maybe not what you expect. Taking opportunities as they come and learning to go with the flow can help you squeeze your workout into your day."
             ––Chrissy Carter, Yoga Instructor.

My tip is to stay consistent. Don't fall to the wayside. If you do Mondays at 6 p.m., then do it every Monday at 6 p.m. Put it in your calendar and make it a non-negotiable commitment.

Turn exercise into a social activity. Accountability is a huge factor in holding you to your goals and commitments. When overwhelmed with a hectic week, scheduling your workouts with a friend works twofold: you can encourage and support each other while also spending time together. It’s also a great option for entertaining clients after work, whether going to a dance, spinning or barre class.
––Robin DeMarco, Life Coach.


"Often, it is not about quantity but quality. Pick three to five exercises, and do three or sets throughout your day. For example: 15 push-ups, 15-20 stationary lunges (each leg), 30-60 second planks, 20 squat jumps.  This is a total body workout that improves tone, strength, and raises the heart rate––no equipment needed! If you don’t have time to do three or four sets in a row, do one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one or two in the evening (or however you can get it in). Remember, quality is key so spreading it out allows you to really focus on that."
