People ask me all the time how do you make time to exercise. B.C. (Before the Challenge) I used the gym at my office. I’m blessed to have a wonderful, complete gym at my office that is staffed with great trainers, great equipment and great classes. I did go a little in the morning but my body doesn’t like to work out very hard in the morning. I need some coffee and a shower before I can work out. I know that’s crazy talk but if I don’t shower before a work out it just doesn’t feel like I’ve worked as hard.
I go a lot on my lunch hour and crank out a hard core half hour, some times 45 minutes, take a fast shower to get the sweat off or just wipe down with wet wipes, freshen the hair up and make up and go back to work. I bought a little fan to keep at my desk so I could fan myself if I’m still overheated from working out. Then I’d eat my lunch while working at my desk. When I was training for the half marathon I did a lot of running on my lunch hour and ran on the trails around my office. Now if you don’t have a gym at your office just take a walk around your building, go in a conference room on your break and do some push ups, sit ups, squats, etc. Where there is a will there is a way.
As part of this challenge we were given a membership to Gold’s Gym and access to amazing trainers. Now I train/work out with Lass at least 3 times a week. My sessions are from 5 to 6 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Andy works with Wes 3 times a week too. The gym is on my way home from work so I just swing in and punch out an hour and head home. Andy sets his sessions so that he goes between 7 and 8pm. Andy also will work out in the morning. Nothing like working with Wes but he’ll do some to build muscle and endurance. Plus Andy walks all day everyday so he’s constantly moving.
