    6 exercise habits of highly successful people

    As a director or CEO, every minute of your day counts.

    Your schedule is usually full to the brim with meetings, phone calls, and business events.

    But that’s where many people in your position struggle to balance a busy working life with a healthy fitness regime. Lack of exercise combined with unpredictable bouts of pressure can have a serious impact on your health.

    So how exactly can you ensure you get the right exercise without sacrificing too much time out of your hectic day?

    Here are some approaches from six successful people.

    Richard Branson


    He launched a magazine called ‘Student’ in 1968, at the age of seventeen. Since then he’s become a legendary business mogul – and he even has his very own island.

    But what exactly does Richard Branson do to keep his mind focused and body active?

    According to the man himself, he likes to get active as soon as he wakes up – which is around 5am every day. Whether it’s a couple of sets of tennis, a walk, run, bike ride, or even kitesurfing – Sir Richard starts his day by getting the blood flowing.

    In his own words: “Exercise and family time put me in a great mind frame before getting down to business.”

    Warren Buffet


    The chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and probably the world’s most renowned investor, has a “diet of a six year old”, according to the man himself.

    He eats McDonald’s every day for breakfast. And he has a soft spot for strawberry milkshakes. But Buffet chooses to counteract his unhealthy diet with regular exercise.

    The approach certainly hasn’t hampered Buffet’s success. But it might not be for everyone.

    Oprah Winfrey


    The famous talk show host and author commits to a fairly rigorous workout schedule.

    According to Business Insider, her workouts include 45 minutes of cardio six mornings a week, four to five strength-training sessions a week, incline crunches, and stretching.

    She also has two twenty-minute sessions of sitting in silence each day – valuing the health of her mind as well as the fitness of her body.

    Barrack Obama


    The former president admitted that before he began running three miles each day, he was a casual drug user and underachiever.

    According to The Telegraph, Obama works out for 45 minutes, six days a week.

    The paper also reported that during his 2004 senate campaign, his staff would call up gyms on the campaign trail to alter their hours just so he could stick to his exercise routine.

    Tim Cook


    The CEO of Apple wakes up at around 4:30 to 5am every day, and visits the gym several times a week. He even described himself as a “fitness nut” in an interview with Fortune magazine.

    What’s more, Walter Isaacson’s biography of Cook’s predecessor – the inimitable Steve Jobs – tells of how the iPod inventor often conducted business meetings during long walks. This active approach could help to stimulate the brain and sharpen focus. 

    Mark Cuban


    The billionaire tech investor and reality show judge aims for at least an hour of cardio six days a week.

    This can include elliptical and stair gauntlet machines, playing basketball, and taking kickboxing and Latin fusion aerobic classes at Lifetime Fitness.

    Don’t let your busy schedule damage your health

    It’s clear from the exercise habits of such prominent and successful figures that it should play a critical role in anyone’s daily routine.
