How to Stay Fit and Healthy as a Filmmaker

Many challenges come with being a filmmaker. If you’re like most of us, you don’t have regular office hours and spend your days on the go. You could be shooting in the middle of nowhere or stuck inside a dark editing bay for hours on end. Getting your body in shape for the long haul is essential for the production of any film, but it is especially important for filmmaking.

As a filmmaker, you need to be able to move freely, stay agile and be able to lift heavy equipment. However, staying fit and healthy as a filmmaker can be difficult with such long hours spent sitting at computers or on set. How do you find time to work out? What should you do when your schedule doesn’t permit regular exercise? See these tips now.

 

Schedule time to work out at least four times a week

Many challenges come with being a filmmaker. If you’re like most of us, you don’t have regular office hours and spend your days on the go. You could be shooting in the middle of nowhere or stuck inside a dark editing bay for hours on end. Getting your body in shape for the long haul is essential for the production of any film, but it is especially important for filmmaking.

While it might be hard to find time to go to the gym, it’s even harder to make time for your workouts once you get there. After all, there are a million things to do: from editing your latest short to responding to emails, to putting together a new project, to simply having a life. But there are three major reasons why you need a workout schedule:

  1. Your body needs time to rest. Your muscles need to recover after a grueling workout, and having a schedule will ensure you give them time to do so.
  2. It will force you to prioritize your time. If you schedule a time and a place to work out, you will be less tempted to skip out on your workout.
  3. Working out will make you feel better. Exercise has been proven to improve mood and lower stress levels.
  4. Having a fit and healthy body will also increase your confidence when making films, which will improve the quality of your films. What you need to stay fit is a good diet and exercise. With a bit of determination, you can find many gyms to cater to your workout needs and work around your schedule.

 

Incorporate movement into your day by taking the stairs or parking farther away from your destination

Staying healthy as a filmmaker doesn’t have to mean that you have to spend hours at the gym. Sure, it’s best to spend a few hours a week at the gym. Sitting all day at home can cause stomach issues, which stop you from getting healthy. Consult with a doctor and consider getting a timely gastric bypass surgery if needed.

However, staying fit and healthy as a filmmaker can be difficult with such long hours spent sitting at computers or on set. How do you find time to work out? What should you do when your schedule doesn’t permit regular exercise? See these tips now.

However, you may have a hard time finding time to exercise regularly, and that can make you feel unmotivated. So, here are some practical ways you can incorporate movement into your filmmaking schedule.

  • Take the stairs
  • Park farther away from your destination
  • Walk during breaks
  • Do a few squats or push-ups in the morning
  • Walk to a co-worker’s desk instead of emailing/calling
  • If you have a long meeting, walk around the building for a few minutes
  • Use public transportation instead of driving
  • Go on a hike
  • Wash your car by hand
  • Vacuum the house
