Anyone who has children knows that a fitness routine is often one of the first things to be dropped. There are many reasons with the most common ones being less time, reduced sleep and energy, and just different priorities
However, it is really important for parents to incorporate exercise into their daily routines. Regular exercise is essential for well-being, and being a parent should not exclude you from this. Not only will it keep you physically healthy and strong but the benefits to your mental health can be important for stressed-out parents. It has been proven to have a positive impact on depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. It can help relieve stress, get better sleep, and boost overall mood
Basically, exercise will make you a healthier, happier, and more energetic parent.
Our advice here at The Gym Melbourne is if you can set out a weekly schedule in which you give yourself time to come in for at least 30 mins from two to three times a week. We have personal training 1:1 packages that are 30 mins long and are flexible with our coaches to fit into a busy schedule. Our classes are also 30 mins long and have a number of classes throughout the week. Book your free fitness assessment and see how best we can help you.
