No time to workout? Are you working a 12-hour shift, and all you want to do after work is sleep? Making time to workout when you’re busy is hard, but if you’re willing to put a little time aside for yourself, it can be done. Here are some tips for fitting in that workout when time is limited.

Work out at Home – Working out at home is a great way to get in a workout without having to spend time trying to make it to the gym. (maybe insert a trackback link to the Be a Gym Homebody post)

24-hour Gyms – There are now numerous gyms open 24-hours such as 24 Hour Fitness and Xsport to accommodate those of us without 9 to 5 schedules. Also, non-peak gyms times reduce the wait time for treadmills, weight machines, etc. so your workout can be completed faster.

Work Gyms – If your office offers a gym at work, take advantage of it. This is a great place to let off steam before, during (with an understanding boss) or after work.

Take a Walk – Try fitting in a walk or several little walks during the day. Instead of sending anemail, maybe you could deliver your message in person.

Remember start with a small goal such as I’ll work out 3 times a week. Little changes can add up, and over time working out can become a habit. It’s all about making your health a priority.

What is the craziest work schedule you’ve ever had? Have you ever had to work out at a weird time?
