How do the most famous entrepreneurs in the world stay fit?

Here's why being too busy is never an excuse to shun exercise.


It goes without saying that regular exercise can greatly improve all aspects of your life. Whether it’s your health in general, your mood of even just your waistline; exercise is never a bad thing.

One thing in particular that a regular work out will go a long way to improving is your productivity. If you plan on taking your business to the next level, attempting to fit regular exercise into both your own and your employees’ daily routines is never a bad move.

Now, let’s make this abundantly clear: being ‘too busy’ should never be an excuse to shun exercise from your life.

Why? Well, if some of the world’s most successful and influential business leaders and CEOs can make time to fit a daily workout into their lives – surely you can too?

Some of the most popular and well-known names from the world of business follow strict and often incredibly gruelling daily exercise routines.

For example, did you know that Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue, plays a match of tennis each day before heading into work?

By doing so, she manages to burn roughly 529 calories daily, or 2,645 per week. If that wasn’t impressive enough, Mark Holowesko, founder and CEO of Holowesko Partners, often cycles up to 80 miles per day, and swims during his lunch hour too! This intense fitness regime helps him to burn 3,892 calories each day, or 19,460 per week.

While jumping straight into a daily 80-mile bike ride may be a bit much for those just starting out, have a look through the Exercising Entrepreneur infographic for some fitness inspiration.

Who knows, you might just find the work out that will help take your business on to the next big thing!
