Visiting the gym whenever you have the free time or sticking to the same time everyday – what’s the better option?
Studies indicate that it is better to be consistent and stick to a daily same-time regime. Here are a few of the reasons why this works out better.
The Habit Factor
One of the main reasons why you should consider being consistent in your daily fitness schedule is simply because it requires a lot less motivation. Humans are creatures of habit and when you stick to a regular exercise routine, over a period of time, you turn it to a habit. If you go to the gym whenever ‘time permits’, you are more likely to skip a few sessions – you tend to juggle with ‘other’ commitments for the free time slot everyday. Compare this with having a set daily time for exercise – you then drive yourself towards something that you do automatically.
