Seven Ways to Stay on Track
and Fit Workouts into Your Busy Schedule

Click here for more great resources, tools and information from Team Beachbody to help you reach your health, fitness and lifestyle goals!

Are you having trouble fitting your workout into your busy schedule? It's not always easy to start a workout program, let alone follow through with it. Here are a few tips to get you started fitting workouts into your schedule and on a new, fit lifestyle that lasts a lifetime!

1. Be reasonable with your first workouts. Don't take on too much too quickly. Sore muscles can be an excuse to give up before you've really begun. Better to start slow, and build upon your workout.

2. Work out in the morning. As the day goes on, things come up that can prevent you from getting in your workout. Plus, if you work out in the morning you'll get energized for the day, and get a metabolism boost as well.

3. Schedule your workout. Write it down on your calendar! Even if it's a short time, a quick workout is better than none. This will help you make it a way of life.

4. Get a workout partner. On those days you might want to slack off, a friend can give you that extra push to get you going. If no one's around, find a virtual partner. If you have a computer, there's no reason for you to ever work out solo.

5. Change your workout. Varying your program has both physical and mental benefits. Sick of your house? Try something outdoors, like a bike ride or a hike.

6. Take your measurements. And keep track so you can see progress. Muscle weighs more than fat, and you may not see results on the scale as fast as you will notice a drop in inches or clothing size.

7. Increase intensity. You have to increase your intensity to keep making progress. Don't let your program stagnate. Not only will you stop seeing results but you'll also get bored. And it's easy to stay motivated when you keep seeing results!
