Work Place fitness classes are amazing to have for 3 reasons:
1. They’re convenient, so you don’t have to leave the office
2. They’re typically free for employees, since the company is paying for you, you can go for free
3. There’s usually a variety of classes
Your workouts should be short and straight to the point. So many people pound away for hours a week on the treadmill. Lift weights until their arms pop and legs fall off. Look I am here to tell you that most of it is waisting time. Your workouts should be short and straight to the point. Work on getting your heart rate up at 70-80% of maximum output and keep it there from 15 seconds to a minute then bring it back down for 1-2 minutes, repeat for 20 minutes and your done. All of the extra stuff is a waist of time. Get in get out and be done!
The last workout you did, is as good as your fitness health gets. If you worked out today, then today your body is fit, if you worked out last year then last year is as fit as you are. You’re only as fit as your last workout. Workout is a constant.
So you’re at work, and you don’t know what to pick from the vending machine. Most times I would recommend just nuts, wether that’s almonds, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, your safe bet is to stay with nuts.
You’re at the gym and theres a lot of equipments and lots of fit people starring at you (they’re really not but it seems it) all of a sudden you get a panic rush because you don’t know what to do. In this event grab a kettle bell (or dumbbell) and do 150 swings, break up into sets of 10, 10 sets of 15, you should be done in 15-30 minutes. Then finish with 3 planks of 20 seconds to 90 seconds depends what challenges, finally do a 5 minute cool down walk on treadmill and stretch it out. There you go a 30-45 minute workout and you look like a pro!
Always thing high protein or veggies when you’re at the office. Here’s a list of foods to look for at your office:
all fruits except dried fruits (bananas, dates, dried apricots)
80% of success is just showing up. It’s just walking into the gym, if you do that then you’ve covered 80% of success. The rest is just work. That is lifting weights, cardio, core. That’s the easy part, the difficult part is the 80% getting yourself to the grips of going to workout.

And lastly its high in antioxidants, so red wine is good for your immune system. The goal is sticking to just 5oz before bed and you’ll be sleeping good!
