If you’ve missed a workout or two lately, chances are time, or really the lack of it, had something to do with it. Many of us view going to the gym as an all or nothing process; either you have an hour to devote to it or you don’t. Let’s back up a minute though.
Maybe it’s not that you don’t have enough time, maybe it’s that you need to use your time more efficiently. If you follow one or more of the tips listed below, you’ll be able to shave time off your next trip to the gym.
Make a Plan
Don’t waste precious minutes figuring out your workout when you get to the gym – make a plan ahead of time! Knowing exactly what you’ll be doing will make your workout go smoothly and save you time.
