8 Easy Workout Hacks for Even the Busiest People

Have you ever wondered what it will be like when your kids are out of the house?

I never thought that when my kids were out of the house, I would be more busy than ever before! Trying to juggle my full-time job, caregiver duties for my mom, and volunteering at my church (which includes Shazzy Fitness four to five days a week) have been daunting but I wouldn’t trade my life for anything! I am so grateful to be able to teach Shazzy Fitness at my church as often as I do.

morning stretchFinding time to work out daily is so difficult for most of us. Don’t we all wish we could have the celebrity life and have a trainer on our beck and call whenever we wanted? While this isn't realistic for most of us, I do have eight amazing ways to fit in a workout everyday. By incorporating these simple tasks, you can get your workout in daily!

  1. Stretch first thing in the morning!Set your alarm 15 minutes early and stretch for 10 minutes. It’s a wonderful way to start your day!
  2. During your lunch break at work, go for a 10-minute walk. If you have stairs, even better!  
  3. Give yourself three 10-minute breaks throughout your work day. Put in a mini workout. Do squats, core work, even upper body weight training (bring your light weights or resistance bands to work). By incorporating these mini workouts, you’ve already done a 1/2 hour session!
  4. Make your drive home an enjoyable ogirl drivingne. Put on some great music and do some crunches when you’re at a traffic stop or when you’re in traffic. A seated crunch isn’t hard to do when you have the right music on!
  5. When you get home, before you relax and turn on the tv, turn on some tunes and dance!
  6. Dinner is simmering...go back to dancing! 
  7. After dinner, go for a nice 10 to 15-minute stroll. The weather not cooperating? Cue your go-to workout and DANCE!
  8. For the regular people like me who just can’t do the above suggestions, do a mini session every two hours. Do this six times throughout the day and, BAM, you’ve done an hour workout!  

Making time for yourself, even if it’s 10-minute increments throughout the day, can make a world of difference, physically and mentally!
