Working mothers have limited time based on the complexity and ever-revolving schedules that we face. Incorporating time for exercise can be a challenge. However, regular physical activity provides a wide range of benefits beyond preventing excess weight gain or helping to maintain weight loss. Regular physical activity can support the prevention or management of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.

Finding a good gym that will fit your schedule, personality, and motivate you to come back and exercise on a regular basis may offer another set of challenges. Joining a gym is a large financial commitment, therefore it’s important that you make the right decision prior to signing on the dotted line of a long term contract.
