I want to lose some weight but I've found I don't have the time to go to the gym anymore and I just feel too tired to exercise. How can I get the energy to exercise and find the time?
Lack of time and energy are two of the most common terms I hear as a personal trainer when it comes to why people don't exercise. But there are ways around it which will help you get back on track.
Working out from home will save you time and money. You will save on expensive gyms but you will need to invest in a cardio machine such as a treadmill, exercise bike or cross trainer. Instead of sitting on the lounge each night watching your favourite TV, replace the lounge with your cardio exercise this is a great way to be time and exercise efficient. Another option is to get up 30 minutes earlier in the morning and exercise then, or split your exercise into morning and afternoon/evening sessions with 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening.
As you are feeling tired all the time it may be worth getting a blood test from your doctor, but usually a lack of activity can cause you to feel lethargic because energy creates energy, so the more exercise you do the more energised you become!
