With the party season approaching, you might be thinking about squeezing into that little black dress but don’t have the time to fit in a workout? Well, here are 4 ways to help you stay on track and in shape!
1. Choose something over nothing
You don’t need an hour - or even 30 minutes - to get a complete, effective workout. And some exercise is virtually always better than none. Even 10 minutes can make a difference. Invest in a home workout routine and all you will need is an exercise mat and two 3kg free weights.
3. Try something completely new
Although it isn’t the best time of year to start a new form of exercise, doing something new will force you to be fully engaged with the activity. It will help you stay away from boredom that could lead you down the path of stagnation or backtracking.
Whatever you haven’t tried yet but have always had some interest, whether it’s kettle bell training, hot yoga, or dance classes - take this busy time of year and make it into a learning experience.
4. Work out efficiently
Pick a workout form that you can do almost anywhere, whether you have parties to attend or getting home from the office late. Ideally, this will be a form of exercise that doesn’t require much preparation and that accomplishes significant physical gains in a short period of time.
Climbing the stairs at home or the office, beach body weight exercises, Tabata training, and running are all great choices.
