Exercise in Your 30s - How to Set Achievable Fitness Goals For Your Lifestyle

Exercising, and setting fitness goals, can be a challenge at any age. But in your 30s, you have unique challenges. With these tips and a little planning, your exercise can fit into your 30s lifestyle and you can reach your goals.

Time to plan.
In your 30s, you are time-crunched. You might be getting married, starting to raise children, building a career, volunteering, and attending community events. You may be doing all of these things, every week!

Planning exercise into your busy schedule is important. Just as you need to fit friends and haircuts and grocery-shopping into your schedule, so the exercise must be planned, too.

Work your work-outs into your work.
The 30s are an age when many young people are immersed in career-building. As such, they may be so focused on work during daylight hours that exercise gets pushed aside.

To fit exercise into your work-day, get into a lunch-time work-out routine. Keep a pair of sneakers at work. At lunch-time, move!

If you exercise on your way to or from work, just keep a bag of work-out gear in your car. Put two sets of clothes in the bag on Monday, take them out on Friday for washing, and put them back in the car over the weekend (for the next week).

Include your friends.
If you have children already, then you need more quality-time with friends. Exercise is a great way to spend time with them, and get friendly support for your goals.

If you already spend a lot of your time with friends, then exercising together is an excellent way to bond. You are more likely to stay motivated, have fun, and reach goals when you exercise with friends.

Discuss your goals with your co-exercising friends. Set mutual goals together. And plan your exercise time together.

Your 30s are a great time to play sports. Finding a sport you enjoy is an extra way to be physically active and have a lot of fun doing it.

If you are a young parent, playing sports makes you a good role model for your children. They will see you having fun being active and they will model your behavior. Eventually, they will lead an active life, too.

Making physical activity fun, like playing sports, is the key to staying fit. You are more likely to stick to a program when it's fun. And being on a team means that you have peers supporting your goals.

Exercise is vital to good health. So, whether you are just 30, or closer to 40, make your exercise and your goals fit your lifestyle.
