9 Unusual Ways Exercise Saves Time and Makes You Money
Let's face it — time is money.
If you can do the same business task twice as fast, you can potentially earn twice as much money.
Personally, I've earned a living in two major ways with exercise.
1. I used to be a professional tennis instructor for 20 years. There was quite a bit of exercise involved in teaching tennis to groups and individuals.
2. I currently teach people how to get in shape via my fitness programs like the Lightning Speed Fitness Program, the Push-Up Blaster, Instant Energy Exercises and more.
Yet besides making a living directly via exercise and sports there are several other clever ways you can use exercise to help you make more money and save time.
1. Slims You Down:
Obviously exercise can help you slim you down. I've seen studies where thinner people get paid more money.
2. Builds Confidence and Self-Esteem:
Regular and vigorous exercise builds confidence. Which in turn builds a higher self-esteem which in turn can mean more sales or increased income as you value yourself more highly.
As you gain confidence and naturally project that confidence you'll do a better job and your superiors and or customers will notice the difference.
3. Throw Out Your Diet Pills and Shakes:
Of course you can lose excess blubberitis by exercising. This means you can stop buying expensive and dangerous diet pills and drinks.
This is going to save you mucho dinero.
4. Certain Exercises Produce a Natural High:
Exercise can give you a natural high and therefore help reduce your need for antidepressants, alcohol, drugs and even mood altering junk foods like chocolate, candy, cake, ice cream etc.
This'll save you again on doctor visits and of course you won't be spending money on things that ruin your health.
I've got a couple of special exercises I discovered that create a natural high in just 1 to 5 minutes. This is much faster than a typical runner's high which takes at least a half hour or more of running to achieve.

5. Make Valuable Business Contacts:
Make business contacts if you play sports like golf, tennis or any other sport where there's more than one person participating. People prefer doing business with people who they know, like and trust.
6. Exercises Increase Energy:
Exercise increases your energy. Increased energy means you can do things faster and get more done.
The more you can produce the more you can earn.
I've found a particular way to exercise that not only increases energy but it increases the desire to exercise.
It's called Lightning Aerobics and you can find out more here…
7. Ride Your Bike or Walk:
Ride your bike to do small or local shopping. Or you can walk if it's close enough. This'll save you gas money, energize you and help you burn off excess hippo-butter calories.
8. Run Instead of Walking:
If you have a job that involves walking (like working in a warehouse, farming, moving service or even a retail sales person) then why not run every now and then to your next location.
The faster you get there the more work you can finish. Your increased productivity can lead to getting a raise.
At the very least you can walk very quickly if you feel too embarrassed to run.
I used to string tennis rackets for a living. I didn't get paid by the hour but by the racket. So the faster I did my work the faster I could leave and go do something else. And trust me stringing tennis rackets at super high speed is a type of exercise as well.
Heck I just did this running instead of walking a few times. Boy was it a lot of fun.
Instead of walking downstairs to get a plate to eat my apple on, I ran downstairs got the plate as quickly as I could and then ran back up the stairs. I did that chore at least 200% faster than I would have if I walked.
Only took me five seconds to go from my chair to getting downstairs. But when I did this walking it took me 15 seconds.
Mind you, that was only going down the stairs. I also ran to the kitchen which saved additional time.
Imagine how much time you could save if you did this regularly?
You could probably phree up an extra half hour to an hour per day simply by running between locations.
Not to mention in how much better shape you'd be in if you did this daily.
9. Do Body-Weight Exercises:
Do bodyweight or calisthenic style exercises at home. Saves you money on gas by not having to drive to a gym.
Also saves you time by not driving to a gym. Extra time allows you to spend more time on a side business or putting in overtime at your job.
You also SAVE money on by NOT needing to buy expensive, bulky and dust collecting exercise equipment. With calisthenics and body weight exercises you need virtually no equipment.
And if you're smart (which I know you are) you can reduce your workout time by 300% or more. It's by doing these two simple yet powerful compound muscle exercises that work most of the major muscle groups in your body at once.
Tis the exact opposite of isolation exercises and it's as nature intended exercise to be. These exercises give you real world strength while dramatically reducing injuries associated with weight lifting.

10. Reduce Doctor's Visits:
Take less trips to the doctor because your health improves with regular exercise. There's a positive correlation with people who exercise living longer lives and being healthier overall.
This could save you many thousands of dollars over the course of your lifetime.
Of course, it's just common sense. We need to exercise to be healthy.
Personally, I haven't been to a doctor for a checkup or an illness in over 10 years.
I don't need a doctor (unless I have an accident) because I have HEALTH ASSURANCE instead of health insurance. That has saved me many thousands of dollars.
Of course, exercise is not the only reason for that — eating Raw Food Diet is a huge component of optimal health and anti-aging. You can learn more about this natural method of obtaining super health with these 3 complimentary Raw Food myth busting audios here…
So what are you waiting for. Start jumping, hopping, running and get your rear in gear for a healthier, happier and more prosperous you.
