Hectic event schedules can make it seem impossible to fit workouts into our busy week. You can be as event savvy as the best of the best, but if you get injured or don't take care of yourself, brains are not enough to get you through. When neglecting exercise, you're putting both your physical and mental health at risk, which can negatively affect your productivity and effectiveness at work.
