Short on time? We have you covered.....
Hi everyone, for today's topic we are going to be talking about some of the ways we get our members staying fit whilst working long, busy days.
Let's start by going through a few everyday occurrences that can slow down or halt our exercise routine.
# 1 - Tiredness
Lack of sleep can really have a detrimental effect on how our bodies operate on a day to day basis.
This means completing daily tasks which we would usually find easy can become more difficult and stressful.
Trying to fit in a few minutes of exercise in your day could be the answer.
I know it sounds difficult to believe, but studies show that once we start exercising, the brain releases "feel good hormones" which can really give the body that good mood feeling and boost energy dramatically.
The best part about this is that the exercise doesn't need to be intense or long winded, just 1 or 2 simple exercises will do the trick, and we have this all set up ready for you to dive into!
# 2 - No free time
This is probably the most common reason I hear from people as to why they don't partake in regular bouts of exercise.
To be fair, life can be hectic at times and the days can seem to end as quickly as they started, but what if I told you that the team at KFEF have devised a unique method to help ensure you get in the exercise you told yourself you would?
We have created awesome ways for everyone from busy office workers, full time mums/carers and anyone in between.
Here is a great example of this -
Office routine - complete 5 sets of 10 squats at the beginning of your lunch break, then go for a walk, come back to the office 5 minutes before the end of your break and complete 3 x 1-minute plank holds.
Let's do some quick math, if we did this 3 times per week in a 5 day working week, over the space of 4 weeks you will have completed 600 squats, and 32 minutes worth of planking!
Now that is definitely worth a go!
# 3 - Forgetting to set goals
This is a big one for me, the reason being for myself personally, I find it hard to motivate myself to train when I don't see a goal to reach for.
What I mean by this is, by not setting a goal, I get less of an itch to get up and tell myself to exercise.
Once I have written my goal(s) down and can see them in front of me, with a plan of action on how to complete them, I get an almost instant BUZZ and boost of energy to prove to myself that I can achieve them.
Give it a try!
