Working Out Indoors: 10 Fast & Furious Workouts For When You Need to Get It Done

Working Out Indoors: 10 Fast & Furious Workouts For When You Need to Get It Done | Jessica Says

Hello fitness buffs (yep, I’m going to start every Fit in the City post like this from now on)! As a hard-working day-jobber-cum-blogger, I, like you, value what little time I have immensely. You may have gleaned this from my recent post on creating your ideal morning routine: when and where I can, I aim to be as efficient and productive as possible so as to be able to spend more time on doing things I love, like writing, laughing and spending time my other half.

Does this mean that I’m ready to cut corners and compromise on the standard of the things I do, write, eat, whatever? NO! In my mind, the time spent on something and the quality of said thing don’t necessarily go hand in hand: after all, how many times have we sat through a long-winded, tragically boring speech, only to be blown away by a punchy and to-the-point one that covered all the essentials but didn’t take a huge chunk out of our day? How many essays have we written in our uni years where we waffled on endlessly, desparately to try to scrounge points when we knew nothing about our topic – and how good did we feel on the days we managed to submit a concise and well-thought out paper, instead?

Hold up – that doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? Let me put your mind at ease: I don’t mean the boring, stuck-in-the-doldrums type of routine; I mean the productivity-enhancing, lifehacked to the extreme routine that helps you find your flow, buckle down and get shit done. Specifically, I’d like to talk about morning routines, why it’s so useful to have a good one in place and how to make yours as tight and effective as possible. Sound good? Let’s get started!
