 Tip #1: Make exercising a priority, schedule it into your day as you would a meeting or a dentist appointment. By scheduling a workout into your calendar increases your chances of getting it done, just like you would a deadline at work.

 Tip #2: Sneak a workout midday! Yes, we live in the new normal, where we are all home, all the time. You report in with a virtual login and spend your day on zoom calls. Take 15 minutes and simply stretch out, go for a walk, take the dog out, take the kids outside. By doing this midday, it gives you an energy boost and breaks up your day, it's like drinking 2 cups of coffee!

 Tip #3: Use protective workout gear! We all have a fear of being in public places, but using products like Bear Grips Shield Gloves, which are full finger workout gloves, you no longer expose your hands to touching any surfaces. The touchscreen tips let you play your music and touch cardio screens. Added bonus is using their flexible breathable workout masks. Gives you more peace of mind as you get back into your routine.

 Tip #4: Consistency has bigger rewards. You have to be persistent over time in order to get the results you desire.

 Tip #5: Vary your routines and include the exercises that you like the most when creating your routines, without leaving out those that you may not like but are necessary.

 Tip #6: Think of small goals you can accomplish, whether it is losing or gaining an inch on your arms, losing 5 pounds in two weeks, being able to lift 5 pounds more, or being able to run a mile in a month of consistently working towards it.

 Tip #7: Do not reward yourself with a lot of junk food or too much rest since that would be counterproductive. Instead, reward yourself with supplements that you like or doing an entire routine of the exercises you like the most, always working to achieve your goals. And always keep in mind that at the end of the day success is the best reward!
