5 Ways To Recharge and Relax During a Busy Day: A quick guide for busy fitness instructors on the go!

As a fitness instructor, you're always on the go, constantly moving and pushing yourself to the limits. With such a busy schedule, it can be challenging to find time to recharge and relax. However, it's essential to take a few moments to care for yourself, so you can continue to provide your clients with the best possible training experience.


Here are five easy ways to recharge and relax during a busy day: 

Take a 5 minute walk outside

A quick walk outside can do wonders for your mental and physical well-being. Fresh air and natural light can help to boost your mood and clear your mind, helping you to feel more energized and focused. Be mindful when walking, breathe in the fresh air, turn your face up towards the sun (without looking directly at the sun of course!)

Stretch it out

As flexibility training experts, we know the power of stretching. Taking a few minutes to stretch on your own after a class or before your next class will help to relieve tension and stress, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Practice slow breathing

Slow breathing exercises can help to reduce stress and clear your busy mind, leaving you feeling calm and centered. Take a few moments to focus on your breath, inhaling deeply through your nose and exhaling slowly through your mouth. The great thing about this technique is you can do it while you’re driving to your next class or client, you can do it sitting on the bus or you can sit quietly in the studio before everyone arrives.

Listen to music

Listening to music can be a great way to unwind and recharge. Choose a playlist of your favorite songs or calming music to help you relax and refocus during a busy day.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining energy and focus throughout the day. Make sure to always replenish your water bottle and take regular sips instead of drinking it all at once to help keep your body and mind refreshed.


Remember, taking a few moments to care for yourself can make all the difference in providing your clients with exceptional training. Make these five recharging and relaxing techniques a part of your daily routine and see the positive impact it has on your overall well-being.
