How am i full time single mom, gym owner & and still workout?

Managing a busy schedule while making time for personal workouts requires a well-structured routine and prioritization. Here’s a look into a typical day and how to balance various responsibilities:

Morning Routine

  1. Getting My Son Up and Ready: Start the day by waking up early to get my son ready for school. This includes helping him dress, preparing his breakfast, and ensuring he has everything he needs for the day.
  2. Caring for Pets: Feed the dogs and water the chickens, making sure all animals are cared for before heading out.


  1. Client Retention and Sales Appointments: Allocate specific hours in the morning to handle client retention and sales appointments. This ensures continuous business growth and client satisfaction.
  2. Personal Training Sessions: Fit in personal training clients during the late morning. This is a key part of the schedule, providing focused time for each client’s fitness needs.


  1. Personal Workouts: Set aside time in the early afternoon for my own workouts. Consistency is crucial, so this time is non-negotiable and dedicated solely to personal fitness.
  2. More Client Sessions: After the personal workout, return to training clients or conducting fitness classes. The afternoon is typically a busy period for personal training sessions.

Evening Routine

  1. Dinner and Family Time: Prepare and enjoy dinner with my son, ensuring this time is used to bond and engage with him.
  2. Night Time Routine: Help my son through his night-time routine, which includes activities like homework, reading, and getting ready for bed.
  3. Remaining Present: Emphasize being present and attentive during these evening hours, fostering a strong and supportive relationship.

Tips for Balancing a Busy Schedule

  • Prioritize Tasks: Focus on the most critical tasks first and delegate when possible.
  • Time Blocking: Use a planner or digital calendar to block out specific times for each activity, ensuring nothing is overlooked.
  • Self-Care: Remember to incorporate breaks and self-care into the day to maintain overall well-being and productivity.
  • Flexibility: Stay adaptable to changes and unexpected events, adjusting the schedule as needed while maintaining core priorities.

By structuring the day efficiently and staying disciplined, it’s possible to juggle a busy schedule, attend to personal and professional responsibilities, and still find time for personal workouts.
