Finding Time for Fitness
Nowadays there is countless evidence to support how important it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you train regularly and can maintain a balanced diet, you’re much less likely to develop diseases such as type 1 diabetes. Additionally, exercise is a great form of mental stimulation which helps reduce stress and overall wellbeing.
With that said, many people struggle to fit exercise into their increasingly busy lifestyles. Below are some simple ways to ensure you can find the time, whilst still being able to prioritise your day to day life.
Join the most convenient gym possible. This could even be one close your place of work so that it’s easily accessible.
Get Up & Go
Exercising increases energy therefore if you can set your alarm clock just an hour earlier than usual and fit in a work out before you start the day, it can help you become more productive as well as healthy.
Schedule It In
Just as you schedule meetings into your diary, add your workouts in too. This ensures there is always space in your day reserved for fitness and therefore improves the likelihood of you getting it done too.
Emergency Exercise Kit
Keeping a spare set of exercise clothes with you, either at work or in your car means that you’ll always be prepared if you suddenly find you have some free time. Success favours the prepared!
Planning a workout takes time, especially if you’re new to the gym and fitness. By booking a trainer, they can plan your workouts for you, not only saving you time but ensuring you get them done too!
Through doing the above, you’ll soon find that fitness will have found its way into your day to day routine.
Remember, anything that sustains your heart rate for a period of time, counts as exercise, even simply running around with your children! For more advice or if you would like to book an induction into the gym, please book with the spa reception or ask for the fitness team.
