Make Room For Your Workout Time

  • Do you have a calendar for deadlines and events? Pencil in your workouts and cross them out when completed. Seeing them in writing makes you feel more committed.
  • Find a gym close to the office or home. When you're rushed, getting there and back won't feel like a big ordeal.
  • Invite a friend to join your or sign up for a class. When there are other people who expect you, it's harder to back out.
  • Stock up on exercise DVDs. If you don't have time for the gym, you can at least get a great at-home workout.
  • If you have to miss exercise time, commit to do office mini-workouts to make up the difference. Forgo the elevator, do laps around the floors, or walk the last leg of your commute home.
