A couple of weeks ago, I shared how you can find time for your physical, mental and spiritual fitness. It is possible, even as a BUSY WOMAN, to have a few minutes each day to work on your physical health. As I shared, I do not have as much time as I once did to work out; therefore, it is important that I use my time wisely to receive the most benefit.
When designing your fitness program, be sure to plan your type, duration, intensity and frequency so that your time is well spent toward achieving your goals. To get the most benefit, determine each of the following components BEFORE you get started to help you stay focused, get results, and NOT WASTE ANY TIME.
Choose one or two types of exercises that work best for your schedule, personal limitations and fitness goals. There are so many different types of exercises such as walking or running outside or on a treadmill, swimming, dancing, skating or biking.
Plan the length of time you will need during your work out to meet your goals and get YOUR results. For example, will it be twenty, thirty, or forty-five minutes or one, three, or five miles.
Most important, for a woman who is short on time, is to set a work load that is hard enough (intensity) to get results. Take for example, my client Shelly; she is getting her desired muscle tone by lifting heavier weights with a variety of strength training exercises. You may be different than Shelly, but the key is to work at the right intensity and program for you.
Set yourself a schedule of how many times you will exercise in a given week according to YOUR schedule. Then be sure to determine the day and time to help you with consistency in your program.
