THE BUSY MAN’S GUIDE TO GET­TING RIPPED

BE IT WORK­LOAD OR PAR­ENT­HOOD, FIND­ING THE TIME TO GO TO THE GYM IS TOUGH. THE SO­LU­TION – BRING THE GYM TO YOU.

GQ (Australia) - - GQ TASTE+TRAVEL - EDITED BY CHRISTO­PHER RI­LEY

The easy thing to do is give up. For­get the gym ex­ists, em­brace dad-bod sta­tus, per­haps even de­velop a quirky dress sense to off­set the steadily grow­ing waist­line. But no one likes a quit­ter. Rest as­sured, you’re not the only one con­tem­plat­ing re­mov­ing ‘ex­er­cise’ al­to­gether from the weekly to-do list. Chris Feather of Syd­ney’s 98 Gym un­der­stands this strug­gle isn’t solely re­served for par­ents – with grow­ing re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, we’re all find­ing less time to work out. Part of the prob­lem can come from peo­ple sim­ply not know­ing what to do. Ac­cord­ing to Feather, peo­ple just want “one less thing to worry about” when they en­ter the gym. Complicated pro­grams are a thing of the past – in­stead, with the help of 98 Gym, we’ve de­vised the per­fect regime to suit every­one. Each ses­sion lasts for a max­i­mum of 45 min­utes – call it the new ‘me time’. If you last the month (which you should) start to in­crease the weight on cer­tain move­ments or de­crease rest time. And whether you do it at home or in the gym is your call – just don’t quit.
