It's simple. Start a regular exercise program, with a coach to keep you accountable, and you will begin to manage your time better.
There is no way to commit to an exercise program without managing your time well.

They become good food managers.
Gym members who come to the evening classes have to get out of work on time, or early, to make it in. Getting their work done, and knowing what can wait until the next day, makes evening exercise possible.

It’s funny ... you might not realize the relationship between exercise and time management, but I see it every day and I greatly appreciate the effort that it takes for people to make it in for class consistently.
Keep up the good work and thank you for your herculean effort it takes to manage your time well to fit in exercise!
