Make Hectic Days Manageable: 4 Tips For Fitting in Exercise

You know that sitting too much can lead to serious health conditions, but when things get hectic you may think you don't have time to fit in a workout. If that's the case, here are four ways to spend your next busy day burning calories.

Wake up with a 10-minute workout: Nothing saves time more than a workout at home, so start your day with a total-body 10-minute workout — you'll burn calories, raise your heartbeat, and tone all over before you even have to take a shower. You don't even have to spend time making up your own circuit; follow along with celebrity trainers in our 10-minute Class FitSugar workouts here.

While you're waiting: Waiting in line is inevitable, so don't let all that time go to waste. Do a few of these discreet toning moves to continue to whip your body into shape while you wait.

Lunchtime workout: Your day may be packed, but sometimes that's just the time to duck into your gym for a quick workout. A midday workout can re-energize and refocus your mind, making you more efficient at performing afternoon tasks (and possibly freeing up your time!). To find out how to get in and out of the gym without delay, read our time-saving tips for fitting in a midday workout.

Relax and unwind: Keeping your muscles loose and flexible is key to an effective workout routine. Add a few of these sleep-inducing yoga poses before you go to bed in order to tone your muscles while relaxing your body and preparing yourself for bedtime.
