Use these fitness hacks to work a little more exercise into your daily routine. No need for a gym membership or fancy pedometer—these simple tips can help keep you fit with ease.
Get fit while watching TV
Choose one workout move, and do three sets of twelve reps—you can try this during a commercial break or even as you’re watching. Exercises like planks, push-ups, squats, and lunges work well for this.
Listen while you work
Download an audiobook, and only allow yourself to listen to it while you’re working out. Not only will it help to take your mind off the workout, the story will motivate you to come back for more—and work out more, too.
Each time you work out, put a dollar into an envelope. When you hit your workout goals, reward yourself with new exercise clothes and gear or try a new workout to help keep you motivated.
Break it up
Aiming to get a full thirty-minute workout in? Try breaking it up into three sessions: start your day with a ten-minute yoga routine, take a brisk, ten-minute walk on your lunch break, and alternate muscle groups for a ten-minute weight-lifting session before or after dinner.
