Working Out 2-3 Days a Week

Never give yourself a hard time about only working out 2-3 days a week.

Sure, getting 4-5 workouts in a week will get you the results you want quicker, but 2-3 is 1000% better than zero.

Life is always going to be a balancing act.

Between work, school, family, and friends we’re always going to struggle to find the time to fit everything we want into our lives.

It’s important to make working out a priority but if all you have time for is 2 hours a week that will get the job done.

So if you find yourself doubting whether or not getting to the gym twice a week is worth it let me tell you it absolutely is – just make sure you do it consistently.

One of the first questions I try to ask everyone who completes their On-Ramp with us is “What days do you plan to workout each week?”

Ideally, these will be consistent – Tuesday/Thursday, Wednesday/Saturday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday – whatever makes the most sense for you.

Once you’ve identified the days you need to determine the time and again it should be consistent. The fewer variables we have day to day/week to week the better.

If you work an unpredictable job or if you have kids you’ll most likely need to knock it out first thing in the morning.

This can seem daunting at first but after a couple of weeks you get use to it.

For years I swore I’d never workout at 5:15 am, but as we got closer and closer to the arrival of our second daughter I began to realize that if I didn’t do it then I’d never have time to do it later in the day.

I’ll admit it was tough dragging myself out of bed for a few weeks, but now I’m up before the alarm goes off.

Again, just do it consistently and you’ll fall into a rhythm.

If you have less obligations and can take the extra couple hours of sleep and still workout in the afternoon go for it.

A big part of my job as a coach is helping our members build a schedule that’s going to make working out easy and enjoyable for them.

If you’re struggling to find the time shoot me a message and we can put a plan together for you.

And don’t forget – two workouts a week is a win!
