MONEY TIGHT? BUSY? SINGLE PARENT? – HERE IS A FREE HOME WORKOUT FOR YOU!

The 3 most common things i hear as a reason why exercise doesn’t get done is this: –

  1. I’m too busy, i work long hours!
  2. Money is tight at the moment, i cant afford a gym membership!
  3. As a parent its too hard to train with a baby/toddler!

The blunt truth of the matter is, these are weak excuses and i’m yet to meet anyone who is actually too busy, too poor or cant train with a baby around. It just takes some effort to think of solutions. Its a mindset.

MONEY TIGHT? BUSY? SINGLE PARENT? - HERE IS A FREE HOME WORKOUT FOR YOU!

Let me give you a great example that actually applies to all 3 of the above issues quite well. My client, Sally, is a single mum of 3 children under 10, one of which is 2 years old. She is a lawyer in central London and lives in Surrey. What with commuting and childcare costs (as well as other personal commitments) she struggles to afford a gym, let alone my services.

Sally, however, trains EVERY DAY and sticks to a nutritional plan almost perfectly, without any of the above issues. She has dropped 4 dress sizes this year (10 months actually) and also got a promotion which she has massively contributed to her new found energy for life. If Sally can train every day, with 3 kids and a full time job, so can anyone in my opinion.

So, with that said, let me help out with issue number 2 – MONEY!

Being active doesn’t require a gym membership. There is no doubting that it helps, as the array of equipment and motivation can really help, but with a little self will and self motivation, then a gym is not needed. Here is a free home workout that I used to get Sally to do on days when time was just too tight to get to the gym.
