Find Time to Get Fit 03:59
Squeezing in a workout used to mean I had to go out — as in leave my house and drive to the gym. I never blocked this time-intensive effort into my schedule, but I found savvy ways to work out that don't significantly impact my day. That means, no excuses!
You can do these micro-workouts at home, at work or simply going about your routine. Add some of the newest devices and apps and you can get fit while feeling great. While it may take 10,000 steps to get heart-healthy and keep my energy level up, that doesn’t mean I have to run a marathon or take a hike to heed results. With an activity tracker, I can simply make slight changes to my routines — like parking further away from an entrance or swapping out a traditional chair with an exercise ball. I also like to use a fitness website that tracks my workouts and donates money in the name of my progress to the charity of my choice. Good karma for me and my thighs!
For those times when I need a little help kicking some calories to the curb, I call in the troops — my family of coaches — to cheer me on. Looping my kids in on my fitness goals and enlisting their creative skills to motivate me allows me to stay focused. Learn how to make a motivational fitness poster at Made + Remade.
