Well, not just you, 60% of the working population have shown interest in working out, but they blame their jobs for not letting them.

1. Wake Up and Hour Early:
You may be unable to shift your schedule to find time for workouts. In that case, make out time. You need 45 minutes at least 3-4 days a week to work out. Why not wake up an hour early on these days to make time for working out? This may seem a little tough to do, but after you finish your workout session, you will really feel energetic and be more active in your day.
2. Workout on the Weekends:
If you commit to working out 3 days a week, you can plan it so that one session falls on the weekend. Working out on the weekend means you will have a lot of time on your hand. This also means you just have to find time twice a week on a working day when you work out, which can be much easier to do than finding time daily to work out.
3. Join a Gym Close to Work:
