The most popular response was ‘the lack of time’ for exercise.
As a mum of 2 small children and working full time with juggling family commitments, I understand just how challenging it can be to find time to fit in fitness, and I am a fitness expert and trainer!
Since having my family I changed the way I exercise. Rather than spending valuable time travelling to a gym, finding somewhere to park or organising childcare I found three quicker ways to get my workouts done not only at a time that suited me but without taking hours away from work or family time. These are the same three ways I advise my clients to try if they feel frustrated with their lack time to exercise.
Choose one or a combination and you’ll notice how much easier it is to fit in fitness within your busy day!
- Home online video workouts
Online fitness videos are ideal for a quick fitness workout you can do your workout anytime and anywhere. For mums and moms exercise at home means you can do it whilst your baby naps or toddler plays.
You save time exercising at home as you don’t need to travel to a gym or class or have to organise childcare (or pay for it).
- Get outdoors and squat whilst your kids play
Walk to your local park with your baby or your children and whilst the baby sleeps or sits in the buggy or whilst your children play fit in some exercises such as squats, lunges and bodyweight exercises. You can burn calories, tone muscle and improve your flexibility just by using your own body. Squats and lunges are great exercises to tone the legs. Core and abdominal exercises specifically for mums and moms will get your tummy muscles stronger and flatter safely and effectively.
- Live video fitness classes
Joining a live video class not only gives you accountability and helps with commitment you have your own instructor to hand so you exercise with the correct technique without having to leave your home and spend time travelling to do exercise. You also save on the hassle of finding childcare to exercise and although you are exercising at home with a live online class you still get the group class experience.
