Realistic Tips to Fit in a Lunch Workout

6. Get pretty. Sanitary is one thing, but you have to get presentable again, too. Chances are you put your hair up during workouts, so getting rid of that ponytail bump is a must. Get the crease in your hair wet with water and just brush smooth. Bring makeup for reapplying. You may just need to touch it up, or you may need to wash your face and start from scratch, so bring it all just in case.

And, voilà! You are back to work, and no one will know you spent your lunch exercising—you’ll just look extra great in that pencil skirt.

    Ok I’m so bringing my workout ball to the office! Jacknifes and side crunches!!!
    Maybe I’ll pick up some weights too
    And here I was complaining I don’t have enough time at the gym to do everything 

  2. Good ideas. I think the key points are:

    Make sure to bring your gym clothes/accessories
    Have a workout already prepared
    Keep it simple, short, but intense
    Don’t be dependent upon equipment
    Give your best

    If you honor all of these principles you’ll be able to insert killer training sessions into your day, every day.

    Great ideas, but it’s hard to pull of the squats and lunges in an office in NYC! Will have to try it in an empty office while everyone else is out to lunch!

    Wow such a good ideas, but it’s hard to pull of the squats and lunges in an office in NYC! and i promise with you that i will apply these.

    Dry shampoo! It’s my best friend. I get a very sweaty head – blast with a hit hair dryer, then liberal spray with dry shampoo, brush and go (I usually tie my hair up after a work out too). Without the dry shampoo, I’d look like there was an oil spill on my scalp.
