How to balance workloads with workouts

Like everybody in modern civilisation, you are a busy person – right? There is work, traffic, household tasks, family and social responsibilities and endless other engagements. Understandably, sticking to a fitness regime is hard.

Moreover, for many of us, being “on the go” really means not going at all, but rather sitting still – in meetings; in front of a computer; in your car. Consequently, the busier our schedules get, the idler our bodies become, leaving us unhealthy and unhappy.

Personal Training: Why fitness coaching makes more sense

Apart from merely wanting to be fit, there are several reasons why people may take up exercise – to alleviate stress, to improve a medical condition, to lose weight, to recover from an accident.
