Work can no longer be an excuse after you read through this blog and realize some of the most successful people in the world take daily measures to stay in shape! It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day grind of working, cooking and sleeping but it’s important for your mind that helps you stay successful to exercise. Take a look below to see some of the exercises these successful people do:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hits the links instead of the gym
Trump told Men’s Health magazine that, while playing golf might not seem like exercise, it helps him stay fit.
“When I play a few rounds on the weekend, I’ll come in Monday morning and I’ll have lost three or four pounds,” Trump said. “That’s very pleasurable exercise, and it keeps you away from the refrigerator because you’re out on the course.”
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey combines cardio and meditation to help her power through her busy days
One of the most powerful women in the world trains hard to keep herself physically healthy. In an interview with O Magazine, Winfrey’s trainer said her workouts include “45 minutes of cardio six mornings a week, four to five strength-training sessions a week, incline crunches, and stretching.”
Winfrey also admits to sitting in silence for 20 minutes, twice a day.
GoPro founder and CEO Nick Woodman shreds some waves
Woodman, who was once the highest-paid US chief executive, launched his sports-camera company thanks to his passion for surfing.
Not just an avid surfer, Woodman is a noted adrenaline junkie, snowboarder, and mountain biker.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is in the gym at 5 a.m. every morning
Cook is a self-described fitness nut, as Adam Lashinsky wrote in his profile of Cook forFortune.
He wakes up around 4:30 or 5 a.m. every day to get to the gym several times a week, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Mint.com founder Aaron Patzer lifts weights, runs, and climbs
“You cannot work, in this instance, 14-hour days without getting a good workout in as a break,” he told Life magazine. “The typical workday, particularly in startup mode, is from 9 to 6 or 9 to 7, then you take a two-hour break to work out and eat dinner. By that time you’re relaxed, and then you work until midnight or 1 a.m. If there was no break with physical activity, you’d be more tired and less alert.”
His workouts include lifting, running, rock-climbing, and even tree-climbing.
“Whenever I see a tree that is climbable, it must be climbed,” he said. “Sometimes when I’m on a run, I’ll just run up a tree, jump on a branch, and swing off. My favorite tree, in Saratoga, gets me a good 75 feet up.”
FOCUS Brands group president Kat Cole strikes a pose no matter where she is
Cole, who runs the parent company of brands like Auntie Anne’s, Carvel, and Cinnabon, has an “on the road” routine and an “at home” one, both of which incorporate early morning yoga.
As early as 5:30 a.m., Cole will do yoga and exercises in her hotel room, the gym, or at home, for 30 minutes, she said in a Business Insider article.
