So the question is, how do you go about fitting these workouts into your routine? While many of us will go to the gym once a week, getting a good daily workout is important to ensure our body is always working optimally. Here we will look at some ways to get that workout in every day.
Go for a Walk: It's not a major workout, but simply going for a walk is better than not getting any exercise at all. There are also many different scenarios in which you might be able to fit a walk in. For instance if you have a pet dog, then taking them for a walk can be a good workout of sorts, and especially if you chase them around a little. Choose rough terrain with hills, and do a bit of 'power walking' and you'll quickly get into better shape.
Watch a Tape: Okay so they aren't really 'tapes' in this day and age, but fitness videos come online and on DVD and these can offer you a great bite-sized fitness workout that you can practice in your front room. It's great for those who can't afford the gym and who don't want to make the long commute, but it's also going to require you have a fair amount of space in your living room.
Skip: Skipping is a very quick and very easy workout you can do at home. All you need is a long piece of rope and again some space - but the garden will do - and you can burn calories fast.
Play Sports: If you have a group of friends who are available to kick around a ball, or to play some tennis/squash then this is ideal for getting into shape. There are few things better for you than playing sports which not only improve your CV and muscle tone, but also increase your reflexes and alertness. If you can't find someone to play with then just explain to them how getting a good daily workout is important and what they will stand to gain from it. It's great bonding too.
Join a Class: There are many exercise classes that can help you to get into shape and these will help to motivate and instruct those who need it while creating a fun social atmosphere. And you can get classes for the whole family too.
