Blake’s Answer

Hey Henry,

Yes, you will have time to exercise. However, it might not always be on a routine schedule. You'll have to be flexible with what time you want to work out based on your class schedule.

Thanks,
Blake

College can be a very busy time but you will have time to exercise!

Here is some advice I have for working out in college:

1. research your workout option to see if there is a gym membership included in your tuition (if not there are plenty of free options like running or free trials for online workout classes)
2. find a friend to workout with so you have an accountability buddy
3. schedule the days and times you plan to workout at the beginning of the week

Remember that missing a workout does not mean that you failed! Unexpected things like a last minute meeting with a teacher may come up and that is okay. It is also okay to acknowledge that certain times of the year, like finals week, may impact your workout schedule but you can pick up your regular routine as soon as that is over.

Jasanpreet Kaur’s Answer

You get time for everything!

One just needs to schedule ahead to make sure things are aligned. Always, plan what to do next one day in advance and try your level best to stick with it. Exercising is an essential component to maintain good health. Moreover, it also boosts your overall performance. In short, you feel energetic throughout the day!

There will be plenty of occasions wherein you will not feel like exercising because of laziness or some other things. So make sure you are committed and firm towards your schedule.

Note: If somehow you are not able to do exercise in the morning (which is the most preferred time). On that day, try to shift it in between the day when you are free.

I hope it helps.

All the best!

Sheila’s Answer

Hello Henry:

Yes, you will have time to exercise in college. Like so many of the answers already presented you just need to set a routine for it. Not always will things align to your schedule. So take advantage of opportunities when they arise. You could alternate your days for working out; whatever works for you go for it. Make sure to keep track of deadlines so you don't miss any class assignments, etc. Have fun working out.

Best of luck to you!

Richard’s Answer

In college, your classes will be time consuming. However, if you work efficiently, you will certainly have time to stay in shape and partake in the hobbies you enjoy, including exercise. You will likely be more productive if you are happy, so it is important to keep doing activities you like.

To ensure you have time, try to maintain a calendar to keep track of all of your deadlines, including exams. If you do your work in advance, you will have lots of free time. Try not to procrastinate!

Riley’s Answer

Totally! Most college students only have a couple classes per day so you will be able to control when and how much free time you will be. Your gym schedule will usually change with your class schedule, but unless you have a job in your off time, you will have plenty of time to get to the gym. Also, most schools will provide students will a free gym and even provide free workout classes! If this is a priority to you, you will have no problem fitting it in.

Carlee’s Answer

Great question, short answer is yes you will have time to exercise. However, you will need to make time each day to do so. When you go to college all of a sudden you have so much time on your hands since your classes typically aren't one after the other as they have been your whole life. That being said, students can easily get out of a routine and may not dedicate time to study after class or even exercise. My best advice is to set up a schedule each week so you know what time you have left for studying/homework, eating breakfast/lunch/dinner, and finally working-out. This will help set you up for success early on in your college career.

Alena’s Answer

College is a unique time when you essentially have time for whatever you want to have time for. Classes and studying will take up a lot of your time, but you'll have the freedom to schedule your day in a way that works best for you. If you want to make exercise a priority, think about the time of day you prefer to exercise and how many times a week you'd like to exercise. Add your exercise plan to your calendar and when it's time to schedule classes, try to schedule them to accommodate your workout plan.

Dan’s Answer

Hi Henry,

College will afford you a lot of time to exercising. One of the keys in college (and onto a successful professional life) is time management skills. It was most beneficial to me to figure out a basic routine that included class, homework, and then personal time (which would include exercising).

Good luck,

Dan
