Make Time For Fitness

I get asked a lot about what I do to make time for fitness.  I lost a lot of weight a few years ago and I did so while running my own business.  So it was always difficult to find the time.  However, I have a few tips that can help you carve out some time in your day to make time for your workout routine and more importantly, your health.
1.  Workout while you watch your shows.  Lots of people have shows they watch every since week and they record them.  Work out in a room where you can watch them at the same time.  Time will fly while you’re working out and you’re doing double duty!
2.  Bring your kids to the gym with you.  Lots of gyms offer day care services.  Ask about a monthly discount.  Despite the fact that it may be a little more expensive for you, often having no day care means you skip the gym, which in turn mean you waste your membership otherwise.
3.  Workout with the whole family.  Instead of working out inside or at a gym, take the whole family, dog included, for an outdoor walk.  Get everyone moving and the whole family will be more healthy!
4.  Buy a piece of workout equipment.  Although this may seem expensive, having your own piece of equipment allows you to workout whenever you get a chance.  This may be before everyone gets up in the morning, after everyone goes to bed at night or for a few minutes in the afternoon.
5.  Put it on your calendar.  If you simply say “sometime” during the day, its not going to happen.  However, if you have a specific plan and time your chances of success grow greatly.
