Finding Time for Fitness

by | Mar 14, 2024 | Leadership

Let’s talk about fitness, working out, and being active. I just had a great workout this morning before coming into the office, and I’m pumped. So now, I want to talk about it with you.   

For years, even before having kids, I’ve always worked out in the morning. I found that it was the best time for me. If I didn’t get it done first thing in the morning, the day would get away from me. It’s such a great way to start your day and get your mind right and focused.  

I’ve had many days when I didn’t want to get out of bed; even this morning, I hit snooze a couple of times. Once I got up, moved a little and got into it, everything came together. It feels so good and sets the tone for the rest of the day.   

I’ve always enjoyed morning workouts, but I know other people prefer different times. Some people love taking a break from their day to work out. At the gym I go to, 8th Day Gym, there are classes offered around lunchtime. I’ve tried it a few times and liked it. However, I can’t do mid-day workouts consistently because my schedule often doesn’t allow me to.   

I know others that prefer to work out after work. I just had dinner with a local CEO who works out at the end of the day because that works best for him. There’s no right or wrong time to work out; the best time is whenever you can do it. Consistency is key.   

Workouts feel really good and set me up for the day. I’d love to hear from you; when is your ideal time to work out, or what sets your mind right for the day?
