As in the previous post, this segment is dedicated to getting the opinions of Personal Trainers on the real and relevant questions that can arise in our quest for a healthy lifestyle.
Every 2 weeks we'll get their opinions on a question based around the pursuit of health, motivation and eating habits.
I'm excited to learn from the wealth of information they together, have to share and hope it can benefit you too!
What advice do you have for those of us who struggle to implement a regular gym schedule into a busy lifestyle?
I used to think I didn't have time to train. I work a lot already and don't even have time for a social life. There is no spare time in my life. I still train. I get up earlier than I should for the time I go to bed as I need to be able to get it done. I say just pick your struggle as none of the options are really without a downside. You get up really early, so you will be more tired. You sleep it a bit more you will probably still be tired anyway but you won't have taken any steps towards your goal. I prefer to train in the mornings so it is done and out of the way for the rest of the day. You have to find a way to fit it in, even if you lose free time, a bit of sleep or don't get to socialise as much. Something will probably have to give eventually - just don't let it be your fitness because once you have that you will be so much happier so it's honestly so worth it.
Either arrange to train with a friend, or group exercise is a great way to get motivated and get competition going when time is limited. Look at something that again is going to push your limits but you are going to have fun doing.
How have you guys balanced the working out/ work life dilemma? Let me know below!
Don’t forget to check back in two weeks for our next question! And if you haven’t already, check out last fortnight’s question here!
Always remember to consult a health professional when making drastic changes to your diet or lifestyle. These are all opinions of qualified Personal Trainers and should be implemented alongside a balanced diet and lifestyle.
