Overcoming time challenges and exploring time-efficient workouts.
September & October can be busy seasons. The struggle to balance work, family, and personal well-being is real.
The Busy Dilema
Long hours, back to back events, frequent social gatherings – who knew the world could go back to feeling so full so quickly?! While maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a priority, making time feels like an insurmountable challenge.
The conventional thought of putting on all the right gear, getting out the door, and spending an hour or more at the gym is unrealistic for many.
Enter –> Time-Efficient Workouts.
Here are a few examples:
HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training: These short bursts of intense exercise followed by brief recovery periods are proven to deliver remarkable fitness in a fraction of the time. HIIT moves and classes are designed to burn calories, boost metabolism, and improve cardiovascular health.
Pick Three Full Body Moves – Do Them Three Times: Pick moves and workout moves that incorporate the full body for maximum effort. Rowing, TRX-squat to row, and burpees are all great examples of moves that incorporate multiple target areas and get the body and blood flowing in all directions.
