Going to the Gym on a Lunch Break

Do You Work Out on Your Lunch Break?

The dark days of Winter have me skipping my usual afterwork gym session; emerging from a workout to pitch-black darkness and freezing temps doesn't appeal to me. To make up for it, I've been ramping up weekend workouts and fitting in gym sessions during my lunch breaks at work. It takes extra planning (and organizing) when it comes to my workday, but it's worth it to avoid the dark commute home. I also have to make sure I am speedy getting in and out of the locker room since every extra minute at the gym is one less minute I'm at my desk. To make sure I don't run over on time, I follow these timesaving tips for working out at lunch.

If I didn't work out on my lunch break, I'd never get myself into the gym. I eat and work, then use my lunch time to do some strength training, followed by a short bout of cardio. Not only does it help me get in a daily workout, but it helps me push through the second half of my day.
