How to Mix Business With Fitness

Recently, we all learned that successful folks are more likely to be exercisers than their less successful counterparts. That being said, mixing business and fitness is not always an easy task. Some professionals have found a way to work in the workouts, and here are a few ideas you may consider to add fitness to your own resume:

  • Make "workout meetings." Go for a jog with a fitness-minded colleague or client and brainstorm during the jog.
  • Hire a pricey trainer. If it's a big chunk of money you then might think before skipping an appointment.
  • Pen it in. Schedule workout time on your calendar, much like you would an important business meeting you can't miss.
  • Take it to the office. Bring exercise routines into the office (early morning or late afternoon), and try inviting other employees to join.
  • Keep it close. Pick a gym that is close to where you work.

I work in a pharmacy and so we're standing most of the time, somtimes we wear pedometers and see who does the most steps by the end of the day. It's really good because it makes you more aware of how much you're really moving around & motivates you to do more.

I work at a beach during the summer so we are actually encouraged to workout during the day,and some days we have workouts all together. In an eight hour day I only end up sitting on the stand for about 3 hours so that gives us a lot of time to workout. I usually run every morning there, I had a running partner who would motivate me to go when I didn't feel like it and I ran faster with him. Unfortunately he ended up telling me at the end of one of our runs that he wanted to sleep with me, I'm engaged and he is married with two young sons. I had to stop running with him but he still pursued me for a little while and I had to sit with him a few times. REALLY umncomfortable.

well, i work with my family so its easier for us to get on eachother about what we eat! im not going to tell my coworker he might not need a large french fry but ill certainly tell my dad!! also, instead of interoffice emails, ill just go talk to them in person. all that walking adds up at the end of the week!
