I had a client once ask me, “How do your busy clients find time to workout?” By busy I mean they have a high stress/high responsibility job, kids, travel, and hobbies. Yet they still exercise 5 times a week. So I asked a client that is truly busy how he manages to exercise often. He quickly replied, “You have to make it a priority.” Ok, so that was obvious to me, but then he added, “You know Jerry, I COULD work more if I wanted to. I could work all through the evening and get home late at night, but then I would not only be skipping my workouts, I would hardly spend time with my family.”
In these and many more examples, the one key component is that they MAKE time to do it.
Where do you find time to workout?
What I sacrifice to make time
Work: I could have many more articles, videos, and social media posts a week if I only did the minimum amount of exercise. My business could be MUCH further ahead by spending time on it while only being fit enough. Relationships: I could spend more time with loved ones by spending time with them on my long breaks or time off, but they understand how important my personal fitness is to me.
Awareness: People often laugh at how I don’t know the details of the latest news. News and politics often go unnoticed to me because I rather spend that time on my body.
You can do it!
So get out there and exercise!
