Do you ever feel like you could do with an extra hour in the day just to fit everything in? With time so precious, putting a large chunk of it aside for exercise is an indulgence many feel they cannot afford.
The average Brit spends 43 hours in full-time work each week, without taking into account all the other duties required of them.
To exercise professionals, the benefits of making time for workouts is obvious, not least for the extra energy it can give for the day ahead. It is easy for exercise to be lingering at the bottom of the list of priorities in a hectic schedule; fitting in gym classes or personal training sessions is just not a realistic possibility for some. Being busy should not be an excuse for not staying fit!
Being aware of any moments in the day that could be used for activity will allow for these times to be used most productively. Finding the perfect time to go for a walk, but lacking the right footwear to do so is useless, forward planning will make the most of these opportunities. Keeping a gym kit in the car or office will allow for spontaneous activity, or make a priority of following through with a pre-planned workout without wasting time going home first.
