If you can’t become motivated to run a marathon twice year or exercise daily your probably with most of us. Lets assume you work at a desk job from 9 a.m to 5 p.m and you have children. There is time in the morning before work and in the afternoon to possibly go to the gym for a 30 minute workout, but lets face it if you’ve got kids, especially little ones theres HARDLY time to get into a serious workout.
If you can manage to work out 2-3 times per week your probably doing pretty well, or at least you would think. Experts say it depends. If you spend a majority of your day sitting down- say 8-10 hours, your not going to see the results from that strenuous workout. A report says that if this is you your most definitely not the only one. According to the statistics, roughly 80% of American’s have jobs that are either sedentary or require only light activity.
