"Daily Workout Schedules
Made Simple "

Taking the time to sit down and create concrete daily workout schedules is an important first step toward creating the fitness you desire. Side effect? You'll also be working toward the body you want.

Fitting your workouts in takes careful planning. You'll save tons of time, avoid frustrations, and get your workouts in when you plan your exercise throughout the week.


"Create Your Daily Workout Schedule"

I'll walk you through this step by step. You'll be amazed at the pockets of time you'll find for fitting your workouts in!

  • Pick a planning day that works for you and grab a calendar so you can get a look at the week ahead. No more guessing...let's write it down!
  • What works best for you? A calendar? Spreadsheet? Cell phone? iPad? You get the idea...

  • Choose what you are most likely to look at every day.

  • Write down all of your obligations for the week, i.e work, family, school, etc. Fill in everything you can think of. Do you have an appointment with the dentist? Your hairstylist? A project to complete? Write it all down!

  • Look at the pockets of time between events. How much time is there?

  • 10 minutes?

  • 20 minutes?

  • 30 minutes?

  • an hour or more?

  • This is where you'll schedule your daily workout routines!!!

  • The type of workout you do will be determined by how much time you have! A total body workout can take as little as 30 minutes! Don't even have that? No problem, just fit in what you can when you can. It's as simple as that.

  • You already have the time, just find those pockets and schedule in your workout!


Workouts to Fit Your Lifestyle

Now that you have found time slots for exercise, let's figure out what you can fit into those slots to move toward your goals.

Your fitness goals will determine which exercises you choose.

Get yourself moving daily to look and feel great. Fitting in 10 minutes of walking, squats, push ups, planks, etc. will move you closer to your goals. Before you know it, you'll want to find time for more!
