There are a lot of quotes doing the rounds in the fitness industry about making time for personal health and well being. Examples include :

  • “no one is too busy, it’s just a matter of priorities”
  • “don’t wait, the time will never be just right”
  • “someone who is busier than you is running right now”

Make no mistake about it, we all have enough time. But we must choose wisely on how we spend it in order to make the most of it. You need to ensure you’re not struggling with work life balance. After all, time is precious.

Wealth V Health

This is a key problem. Demanding positions at work or home need to be balanced with looking after the body & mind. Without this, health issues can stockpile. Your life and mental well-being is what suffers once you neglect your fitness or “time-out” for yourself. Ultimately, looking after your health does not have to cost a lot of money!

Fitness Is Accessible

Everyone is interested in saving time, with most gyms around the country now offering short classes, HIIT workouts, and there’s been a massive rise even 24 hour gyms! There are park runs (which are FREE), bootcamps in parks and endless internet sites offering new and improved workouts. There is more access available than ever before to fitness. And here’s plug number 1! Here at motive8 not only do we offer a free class or free gym trial, but we also regularly produce workouts aimed at those people who don’t have a lot of time. Here’s a couple to get you going: 10 minute dumbbell workout, 10 minute HIIT.
