Helpful hacks for busy people who train

Planning is key for making consistent and sustainable results in the gym. Whether your goal be to  decrease your body fat or to increase your muscle mass. By planning ahead it gives you complete control of your training and nutrition so that you can progress towards your goals at a faster rate.

However, due to the time constraints of modern life, planning to keep fit and healthy is seemingly impossible to do when you have a business, family and work commitments to contend with.

The good news is that you have you come to the right place! Below in this short blog post, I am going to outline my top tips to reduce your time and get on track with your goals.

Tip #1 – Batch cook for the days ahead

Prepare a bulk loads of meats and vegetables for 3 days ahead. The leftovers can be kept in tupperware in the fridge for a few days without the need to freeze them. For more information on batch cooking and planning your nutrition, get in contact with us today. We have resources that make batch cooking a breeze!

Tip #2 – Book non-negotiable appointments for yourself to invest in your health

  • Book your cooking time in your calendar or delegate your cooking to a food prep company / partner (ask nicely!).
  • Book your training sessions a month ahead. This is my top tip, as you are more likely to train if this is an event in your calendar rather than a “I’ll train 4 times this week” mentality. So plan ahead and get those sessions booked in before work or other commitments crop up. The members here at PGHF have no choice as there sessions are all booked in advance.

Tip #3 – Pack your gym kit in your car or in your work bag

Lay out your gym kit the night before if training in the morning or make sure you pack it if training in the evening. This is to ensure you always have workout gear at hand so that you never have excuses not to train.
