10 Easy Ways to Get Fit!


Real Simple Ways to Get Fit!

1. Exercise in quick spurts. A new study has found that people who did just four to six 30-second sprints reaped the same heart-health benefits as those who logged a moderate  to 60-minute workout.

2. Make your home a fitter place. To help you flex your muscles more often, leave a set of dumbbells near your microwave and do curls while heating up dinner. Put a yoga mat next to the bed so you can do downward dogs when you get up or at bedtime. Hang a resistance band on the bathroom doorknob and strength-train while the tub fills up. Or use a stability ball as a desk chair to engage your core when paying bills.

3. Track your steps. Wearing a pedometer will log your progress and may motivate you (aim for at least 10,000 steps a day). Simple pedometers measure just steps; sophisticated models track calories burned, distance, and more.

4. Reinvent date night. Have a date night where you are active like dinner and dancing or taking in a museum exhibition.

5. Double Date with a TV and the Gym. Schedule regular workouts at your gym during your must-see TV shows and you’ll work up a sweat and watch the time fly. If you have equipment at home, slide it into TV-viewing position.

6. Deskercise. When the phone rings, take the call standing up to burn 10 percent more calories than you would chatting in a chair.

7. Put it in ink. Every Sunday night, schedule workouts into your weekly planner. To make sure your family members are on board, place the calendar in a common area so they can see it. That way, workout times become public declarations and nonnegotiable parts of your routine.

8. Put a personal trainer in your pocket. If you own an iPod or some other MP3 player, download complete audio or video workouts from iTrain.com or PumpOne.com. To go that extra mile or work out longer, download podcasts of radio shows, or add a few new songs to your playlist every two weeks.

9. Look at yourself. Put a mirror in front of the treadmill. Researchers have found that people who watch themselves while working out exercise faster with less effort. Eyeing yourself can make a new exercise routine feel easier.

10. Increase the beat. Listen to faster music and your feet will follow suit. And, says a new study, you may also exercise for up to 15 percent longer.
