You spent all of high school doing extracurriculars so you could get into a good college. You spent all of college doing unpaid internships so you could get a good job. And now you have a job that you spend so much time at, you hardly have time for friends, family, and yourself. Does this sound familiar?
Young professionals are typically people between the ages of 20 and 34 who are working in a professional or technical field. Last year, there were about 17.2 million young professionals in the workforce covering occupations from teachers to civil engineers to computer programmers to social workers.
All Work And No Play
Many of these young employees find themselves working well over 40 hours per week. New teachers are trying to figure out what works for their classroom and spend hours after school lesson planning and grading. Nurses are taking on extra shifts to make ends meet. Young architects spend countless hours trying to create building plans that are actually coming to life.
Salaried employees are especially guilty of working more than 40 hours per week, with one survey finding a whopping 50% of salaried employees put in over 50 hours per week. Many young professionals are given a laundry list of tasks to complete that might be out of their scope as they learn the ins and outs of a new field. Additionally, with the looming thought of never being able to pay off your student loans lurking over your head, you’re willing to do just about anything to advance yourself as quickly as possible. This is a recipe for disaster when it comes to a work-life balance. All of this pressure makes young people feel like they need to be the first one in and the last one out of the office, leaving little time to take care of themselves properly.
When you put so much time and effort into your professional life, other aspects can slip through the cracks. It can be easy to hit up a drive-thru after work so you don’t have to worry about cooking dinner, and flopping on the couch might sound more appealing than exercising.
So how do young professionals stay healthy? One of the best options is the help of a virtual personal trainer through Eternal Fitness’s online exercise program.
Online Fitness Programs Work Around Your Schedule
With an in-person trainer that you meet at the gym, you work with their schedule. You make an appointment, and if something comes up and you miss it, often times you still pay for that session. With our fitness training app from Eternal Fitness, your personal trainer will assign workouts to you that you do on your own time. If you have 30 minutes to squeeze in a workout at lunch, that’s great. If you do half of your workout before work and finish it later that day, that’s fine too. Our flexible workout schedule allows for the input of a certified fitness coach without the strict time commitment.
When you exercise on your own, it can be easy to skip workouts because no one is holding you accountable or guiding you. On the other hand, hiring an in-person personal trainer can be expensive and time-consuming. Using a fitness app with a personal trainer is the perfect middle ground. You get professional input and feedback, but you still work on your own time and schedule.
