There’s nothing better than waking up on a beautiful Sunday morning and going for a leisurely bike run or that fun fitness class you've always wanted to try.
Unfortunately, come Monday, the thought of finding time to exercise can be overwhelming or just darn difficult. Between morning meetings, business lunches, and post-work happy hours, it can be hard to find time to breathe, much less get to the gym.
But making time to exercise during the week is important! Just 20 minutes of low-to-moderate exercise three times a week is all it takes to feel less fatigued and more energetic. You may also feel less stressed and sleep better if you workout throughout the week. #Winning
Pencil It InWe all know the workweek can get busy. That’s why it’s crucial to schedule workouts in advance. If it's on your calendar, you're much more likely to follow through. Plus, any late cancel fees may make you think twice before backing out in lieu of a few more minutes to snooze. If you sign up early, you won’t get shut out of busy classes or face the dreaded waitlist.
Plan AheadNow that your workouts are in your schedule for the week, it’s time to get your gear together. Pack your gear the night before to make waking up and getting out the door a breeze. Not enough? Sleep in your activewear. It doesn't get much easier than that.
If you plan to shower at the gym post workout, don’t forget a pair of flip flops and other bathing essentials. Better yet, search for a studio that provides toiletries and towels. Place everything in your gym bag and keep it in your car, gym locker, or under your desk at work.
Pro tip: Pack a snack for those post-workout munchies!
