Fitness for the Time Poor

fitness for time poor

Did you know that lack of time is the no.1 reason people don’t exercise more often? The chaos of life takes over and we forget to look after ourselves. Let this guide help you to reclaim your fitness. 3 simple steps to get your training back on track and boost your fitness, without pounding the pavement for hours.

Step 1

Push yourself beyond your comfort zone. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll have what you’ve always had.

For example, try interval training. If you normally run at 10km/hr on the treadmill, run for 4 minutes at 12.5km/hr, then recover for a few minutes at 8-8.5km/hr. Repeat 4 times. This can apply to any form of cardio.

Step 2

Quality training, quality rest. Our bodies adapt to the training we’re doing when we rest, so make up for all of your hard work with 1-3 training-free days a week. As long as you earn them – challenge yourself in every training session.

Step 3

Train in an environment that motivates you. Some people like gyms, some prefer the great outdoors. Work out what suits you best – with or without music, with friends or on your own, 1:1 with a trainer or in a group? Most trainers offer 30 and 45-minute sessions. Try different options until you find the one that you enjoy most. This way, you’re more likely to stick with it and get the results you’re looking for.


Gretchen Masters loves helping everyone to get fitter, healthier and happier. With the solid foundations of an exercise science degree and over 10 years experience in the fitness industry, Gretchen knows how to help you to get the most out of your training.

Gretchen’s biggest project these days is Spring – a national campaign delivered online to fight depression.

All of the profits from Spring are donated to mental health charities.

When she’s not busy boosting health and vitality all over Australia, you’ll find Gretchen planning her next trip to France.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
