If you do not make time for exercise now, eventually your time will be spent on illness and injury. Inactivity has the potential to lead to a long list of life-compromising health complications. Much of this could be avoided with a small amount of strength training each week.
Most people get a gym membership, tell themselves they will workout two or three times a week and “Get In Shape!” In the end, they accrue monthly credit card charges and long periods of discouraging inactivity.
A better approach, find an exercise program that does not consume lots of your time – one you can stick to. At our Austin Strength Trainers facility our workouts address all aspects of fitness and are specifically designed for the highest marginal return for minimal time in the gym. It takes 30 minutes once a week.
Each weekly session your trainer will have you do a little bit more than you are used to handling. Then rest, recover, improve, and repeat the next week. It comes out to about 25 hours of exercise a year. Add to that an activity you enjoy, and you will have a plan you can stick to.
Years from now you will be stronger, healthier, and still exercising. Then again, you could do nothing and your body will deteriorate to the point where exercise is no longer an option.
