How Busy People can Work out Efficiently

22 March 2024

We get it. Time is of the essence for busy professionals. They log endless hours at work, often neglecting the very thing that can fuel their productivity and energy reserves: exercise. The common misconception is that a good workout must be over an hour – that time dictates how effective your workout is. Whether you have 15 minutes or a full hour, it’s enough to get you moving and can drastically change your health and fitness.

The key to time-efficient workouts

Start by examining your routine and identifying pockets of time that have gone untapped and how you can best utilise that time. For example, interval training in the morning before work, a brisk walk during lunch, or perhaps yoga stretches between meetings. Whatever your day-to-day life looks like, a Personal Trainer can suggest what exercises will help you get the most out of your training and with the time you have.

How to train efficiently

A Personal Trainer will design efficient training programmes to maximise the effectiveness of workouts for busy people. Combining aerobic exercises and strength training in a comprehensive training session can help busy professionals achieve maximum fitness benefits in limited time. Consider these tips to train effectively and get the most out of your workouts!

1. Concentrated training time

Busy people often have limited time, so the focus is on ensuring that each training session is efficient. A good strategy is to concentrate training time on high-intensity activities such as High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). HIIT training typically involves short but intense intervals of exercise, allowing for the burning of more calories in a shorter amount of time while improving cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength.

2. Multi-functional exercises

Choose exercises that target multiple muscle groups, allowing for simultaneous training of multiple areas in one session. For example, squats are a multi-functional exercise that targets the thigh muscles, glutes, and core muscles. Such exercises save time while effectively promoting overall strength and metabolism.

3. Supersets

Supersets involve performing consecutive sets of two or more different exercises without rest. For example, you can do a set of squats immediately followed by a set of bent-over rows without taking a break. This increases the intensity and cardiovascular load of the training while saving time. Supersets also increase the body’s metabolic rate, promoting fat burning.

Health is wealth – and you're richer than you think

Working with a Personal Trainer means that each workout is strategically designed so busy professionals not only get the most results in the least time but also create a ritual in the ROI of health. Being able to identify your pockets of time and what exercises suit your schedule is the key to living a rich, healthy life for busy people – stress reduction becomes natural, and your mental acuity is enhanced throughout the day!
