Time management tips from gym master To Exercise daily

One of the most common, if not the most common 'excuse' for people not to exercise is: 'I don't have time!'.


Statistically, people spend 1 hour every day on Facebook.

So how much time do you need for exercise?

The Center for Disease Control or CDC prescribes 30 minutes of exercise for 5 days every week.

But according to the American College of Sports Medicine, you should do strength training 2-3 days a week.

In reality, the amount of time you need for exercise will depend on your health and fitness goals.

Thus finding time to exercise comes down to 1 question:

How important is your health to you?

While you process that thought, here are 10 ways you can find time for exercise:

1. Wake up earlier; as mentioned Tim Cook of Apple wakes up at 5am for the treadmill.

2. Cut down your time for social media and computer time and replace it with exercise.

3. Walk as much as possible in your daily routine; Bruce Lee used to park his car several blocks from his office so he can walk at least 45 minutes back and forth.

4. Set goals; mark the workouts in your calendar that will eventually lead to the day you accomplish your goal.

5. Find an exercise buddy; make sure he or she is someone who will encourage you to train and remain focused on your goals.

6. Set up a home Gym; you don't need much space for a Yoga Mat, a pair of Kettlebells, jump rope, resistance bands and a Bosu ball.

7. Commit to your resolution; Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made a 2015 resolution to run 584 kilometers (365 miles) in 2016 and he did it.

8. Use exercise as bonding time; do an obstacle course with the family or attend an exercise class together. It's fun, healthy and will keep everyone you love fit!

9. Turn chores into workout routines; set a timer for 15 minutes and see how much yard work you can do. You'll be surprised how intense it can be!

10. Re-organise your priorities; it's great to have the means to pay the bills. But what if those bills end up as your medical bills? You should work to live and not live to work.

These are just 10 tips to find time for exercise. For sure there are other more creative ways.

But remember, you don't need to exercise for an hour, even as little as 10 minutes of high intensity exercise per day provides immense health benefits!

The most important thing is to just go out there and do it! Start today and build the habit.
