In a pinch, this 30 Minute Workout for Women Is Focused & Intense

I am proud of my mom’s accomplishments in life and on the terrain.

30 minute workout for women who work
Finding Your Balance is Valuable Work!

She has worked as an RN for forty years (straight!) at one of the best hospitals in the Bay Area. Key here, is the “as an RN” designation because nurses have notoriously stressful schedules that are highlighted by back to back shifts and on-call hours.

This means, often times for RN’s and other busy mothers and women, their workouts also become per diem.

But not my mom, not women like her – these are women who understand fitness and happiness often times cohabitate each other.

From close confines, I have watched my mother build up to running marathons, from California to Manhattan, in the last decade

She started running at age 50.

How, in even the most benign and hushed contexts, is this not exceptionally inspirational??

Even for me, I see my mom’s dedication, or at least, dogged determination of a motivator, and I am truly impressed.

Yet, she has figured out the unbelievable means to run for mile after and practice this on a daily routine. Many other working women still struggle with finding the great balance between fitness, family, fun and finance.30 minute workout for women who work

So, when the gym is too far, when you are too tired, a 30 minute workout can be the only way to workout during a stressful work week.

Me Time

Here’s the truth:

30 minutes is NOT enough time to workout fully.

Because the aerobic energy system, which is mostly associated with burning body fat as primary fuel will not kick in for IN-SHAPE women until 25 of so minutes into training, 30 minutes is basically a maintenance workout.

This is key.

Yet, running for 30 minutes and looking to an average of 2.75 miles is always a good workout.

But pound-for-pound, a great 30 minute workout is a great maintenance workout.

This however, doesn’t have to be the case.
