4 Tips To Stay Fit With A Hectic Work Schedule!

4 Tips To Stay Fit With A Hectic Work Schedule!

As a personal trainer, I hear more excuses about why a particular client didn’t follow their diet or why they didn’t get their cardio in. All too often, I hear, “I’m just too busy; my career takes up all my time”. Are you too letting your work prevent you from living a healthy lifestyle? There is a big paradox going on, and it becomes more obvious the more challenging a job becomes: we struggle to find time to work out; however, we can’t afford to skip our workouts because it is integral to sustained success. Following these 4 tips will keep the career oriented, focused, on track and on their way to meeting those fitness goals; which in the end will result in a more successful you in every aspect of your life!

1. Choose Selectively!! Look for something that fits to your liking. What works for you, your body, your fitness level? Flexing your self-discipline muscles is often necessary when it comes to exercise. Make it easier on yourself. Choose a form of exercise that fits your lifestyle, personality, and taste.

2. Set an Attainable Goal!! When it comes to being successful at work, collaboration and determination is key. But when we’re trying to motivate ourselves to exercise on a regular basis and stick to our routines, setting attainable goals has its merits. Whether you’re elite, beginner, or somewhere in between, there’s always room for growth and improvement. Set a goal and a plan as to how you are going to reach that goal.

3. Make a Schedule and Commit to It!! One of the most cited reasons to skip a workout goes something like this: “I am just too busy with work; I can’t make my scheduled workout session.” This is called excuses! For all of you who’ve been training with me long enough, you’ve heard it before…”If you’re looking for an excuse, any excuse will do”! If you unexpectedly had to pick up your child from school and had no back-up plan, how would you deal with the situation? Cancel an internal meeting? Take some work home with you? Do some hard prioritizing? The truth is that when we really need to, we get out of the office at the necessary time. Make a schedule and write it down if it helps! Stick to it, and remind yourself that working out is a priority worth keeping.

4. Track Your Progress to Goals “If you don’t measure it, it doesn’t exist”. It’s a slight exaggeration, but this old saying has some truth to it, especially when it comes to exercise. Take notes in your journal, keep a food diary so you can monitor your progress and identify areas of need. Measuring your activity levels and ideally keeping notes on your progress can help you to stay on track and realize when you’re slipping before you’ve completely lost the habit.

For the career oriented, even with a hectic job following these tips will ensure you fit exercise into your daily routine. No matter how busy you are with work, commit to making exercise a priority and never settle for less than feeling strong and fit. Exercise is a very individualized activity, to develop a workout routine that fits your busy schedule or for more information on staying fit, getting in shape, improving your physique, or if you’re frustrated with your current level of fitness and looking to hire a personal trainer, contact us.
