Branded Content by Cosmic Press

While in college, finding time for personal pursuits outside class can be difficult. Between studying, participating in clubs and organizations, and perhaps even working a job, squeezing in time for exercise can seem impossible. However, making time for exercise in college is definitely possible, and personal trainer Eugene Pallisco has ten ways you can do it. 

1. Find a Race 

Signing up for a race is a great way to keep yourself in shape. And it’s not just about the day of the race; all that conditioning you’ll do to get ready will help you exercise more consistently. 

2. Volunteer as a Coach

One great way to stay in shape and active is to serve a Little League or flag football team as a coach. Do the workout with the kids! 

3. Try Intramural Sports

Have you considered signing up for intramural sports? You can make new friends and keep that freshman fifteen from creeping up on you when you’re not looking. 

4. Sign Up for Exercise Classes

An exercise class comes with built-in accountability, whether at your local gym or with a private trainer. Exercise becomes a non-negotiable part of your day with a commitment like this. 

5. Work with a Trainer

Commit to working with a trainer if you really want someone to hold your feet to the fire. They can guide you on the best ways to achieve your personal fitness goals.  

6. Make an Investment

Money is tight for many college students, but there are still small investments you can make in your fitness that can make a big difference. Consider purchasing a set of kettlebells, a yoga mat, or some resistance bands. Let your cash hold you accountable, and make an investment in your fitness. 

7. Become a Member at a Local Gym

Find a local gym; it’s even better if you can walk there. The more convenient it is to go to the gym, the more likely it will be that you will go. 

8. Find a Partner

If you’re someone who does better when you have someone to run with, just ask. It could change your life, and theirs. 

9. Take Lunch

Instead of working through lunch, go for a run. Hit the gym. Take lunch to do something productive. It only takes about 10-15 minutes to actually eat a meal; the rest of the time, you’re probably on your phone. Take lunch in a different direction and get some exercise. 

10. Go Early

Can’t find enough time in the day for a workout? Then wake up early to sweat it out. While this strategy might take a little more effort to establish, your body will adjust sooner than you probably think, and your health will thank you.  

While finding time to exercise in college can be challenging, any of these ten ways can help make exercising more convenient and practical to fit into even the busiest of schedules.
