How do you fit exercise into your schedule?How do I fit anything else in my schedule? Lol. Next question. No, but seriously, in my career you have to sacrifice birthdays, holidays, friend time, family time, any social life just to keep in the best shape. There's no time for slack if you want to be the best. You cant play boxing!
