How Long Should You Be Working Out For?

This is a question that I’ve been asked several times before by numerous clients. And the answer is usually always the same.

It depends.

I know, I know. It’s a terrible answer because, well, it’s not really an answer at all. But the length of your workouts depends on several things, so telling you that there’s a definitive time frame that will most benefit you is simply untrue.

Take into account all the factors that might affect how long you train for…

  1. Hectic personal or work schedule

  2. Do you have deadlines to meet? Need to work overtime to make ends meet? Sometimes work will force you to cut into your training time.

  3. Familial or social obligations

  4. Do you have kids? I’ll tell you firsthand that when you have kids, sometimes their needs will take priority over your workouts. Same thing can be said for a spouse, parent, sibling, etc.
