If you are like most people, you do have a bit of time in the middle of the day. A lunch hour workout is a great way to manage your time and make fitness a priority without interfering with the rest of your life. When you are scheduling your day, block out a bit of time for yourself around lunch to stay in good health and physical shape.
What can you do with a lunch hour workout?
Just how much you can get done in a short period of time? Actually, with the right workout and a good fitness center close by, you can get your training in and still have time to freshen up before returning to work. Here are a few options:
- Work with a personal trainer to develop a short, intense workout. The trainer can help you develop a few routines that each lasts about 30 minutes. They can combine strength, cardio, and stretching to give you a total body workout.
- Take a group class. Many athletic clubs offer group classes around the lunch hour. Some trainers offer group sessions at that time as well. You can go for as long as you have available and get an intense workout that is never the same thing twice. Group sessions can be a great option for not just you, but your co-workers. Get them on board to workout during their lunch hours.
- Use a circuit of the machines. You can use a variety of machines to give yourself a workout. For example, start out with a walk on the treadmill, take a turn on the elliptical, ride the stationary bike, and finish off on a rowing machine.
