1) Set Your alarm early!

Transitioning into an early riser will allow you to get your workout done at a much earlier time, thus allowing you to get it out of the way as soon as possible. Imagine if the very first thing that you did everyday was move your body and get active, don't you think that you would both start your day on a much stronger note and never had to worry about saying "Shoot, I still need to go get a workout in and it's already getting late!" Transitioning into becoming an early riser is surely a beneficial route to go for the already busy individual.

 

2) Multitask on the treadmill

Being on the treadmill can certainly feel like a drag at times, so why not get more than one thing done at once! Imagine getting those calls out of the way that you've been meaning to make WHILE you are doing some paced cardio? Or imagine busting out a ton of emails on your phone while you are in between sets? This would totally crush any excuse that you have about not being able to at least do cardio because you are now doing it while you are doing the tasks that you already have to do anyways!

 

2) Get a 5-minute Isophit session in

Imagine being able to get a powerful workout completed in JUST 5 minutes! Wouldn't that make you feel absolutely incredible by saving all that time? Isophit is great for not only the short time that it takes to get a workout in, it also gives you a real challenege. An isometric exercise is a contraction of a muscle without any visible movement in the angle of the joint. The muscle is contracted in a fixed joint position, or against an immovable object. The benefits and results have always been exceptional, but with the advent of fitness as an industry over the past 40 years and the development of weight lifting and cardiovascular machines, Isometric exercise slipped into the background.Whether your goal is to build strength, burn fat, improve bone density, lower blood pressure, decrease muscle and joint pain, correct muscle imbalances, increase tendon stiffness or enhance athletic performance.

 

There you have it! There are three tips for finding the time to workout with a busy schedule! Now you have absolutely NO excuse as to why you can't be in the best shape of your life even if you are insanely busy.

Drop The Ego, It's Time To Better Yourself

Have you ever wondered why even the most physically fit individuals hire personal trainers to help them work out? Like come on, do they REALLY need a trainer? They are in great shape, they don't feel pain when they go through their exercises, and they make their workouts look easy! Why would they hire a personal trainer? It's simple: the reason they are where they are right now is simply because instead of them having an ego, they decided to ask for help.

You may be asking yourself "But come on, do they really need help?" The answer is yes. A lot of people are under the misconception that having a personal trainer means that you don’t know how to workout, when in reality that often isn’t the case at all.

You see, having a personal trainer isn’t necessarily about learning tons of new exercises that you’ve never heard of, it’s about making sure that you do the exercises correctly. That you don’t end up harming yourself. Many people of all shapes and sizes get personal trainers because they not only want to get the most out of their exercises, but they also don’t want to get harmed.

Think about football players... They are often in great physical shape, but still get the proper assistance. The reason that they have been able to build so much muscle, stay super lean, and not have pain in any joints/bones is because they get the experts to guide them. It's the same with them having their coaches on the field! Of course they could just go at it themselves, but they have someone that can see from an outside view of what you are doing, what you need to stop doing, and how you can do things better.

So ask yourself, are you holding yourself off from getting the proper expert assistance simply because of ego? Even if you don't feel that it's prideful ego, being afraid and lacking the courage to ask for help is still having an ego.
