Answer
Dear Paolo:

  

Consider the following headline:

How to Get Your Workout In When the Weather Is Frightful

My question is this:

What does "get your workout in" mean?

*** Suppose that your physical workout is running or jogging for two miles.  If the weather is really bad, you must REMOVE your planned workout FROM your schedule.

The headline seems to be suggesting that your workout does not need to be canceled.  There are ways to KEEP your workout IN your daily routine.  Perhaps, instead of running through the streets, you can substitute by running up and down stairs.  Such activities would put your workout IN your daily routine.
