Unique Ways to Stay in Shape

Sep 1, 2008
Throughout the day you probably wouldn't think you waste much time, but with the capability of multi-tasking you could squeeze in exercise many times in a day. There are hundreds of unique ways that you can stay in shape, and it will also allow you to be doing something else at the same time most times. Staying in shape has been getting a lot of media attention lately and people are becoming more aware about how important it really is too make sure that you're healthy and in shape. Most professionals suggest that you exercise daily and at a minimum three to four times a week. Your body needs exercise constantly too stay in shape and healthy and if you neglect this then you'll begin to develop issues as you age. Below are some unique methods that you can use when trying to stay in shape and save time.

Try doing push-ups and sit-ups while watching TV at night
If possible try walking or bicycling wherever you can instead of driving
Spend an afternoon mowing the lawn
Go out and get a dog so you can take it for walks
Buy a treadmill and place it in front of the TV
Park a block from where you're going and then walk the rest of the way
Have a set time to play with your children outside each day
Join a swimming pool membership

What's listed above is just a small amount of the ways you can stay in shape and you should try implementing some into your life. By no means will you need too implement all of the tips into your life, but you should try and add a few into your routine. Nothing is more important then your health and without exercising then you won't be very healthy.

If you consumer alcohol or smoke then you're even more prone to bad health and you should be exercising more then anyone to help off-set the smoking and alcohol. Both are terrible for your health and if you don't off-set any of the smoking and alcohol with exercise then you will be limiting your life expectancy. Some of you believe that exercising isn't important if you're already in shape, but even if you're in shape then you need to still exercise.

I personally try and exercise for at least an hour each day at the gym and then that's all I need to do. If you have time to spend an hour at the gym then I would recommend doing that, but if time is of the essence then you could try implementing a few of the tips I've listed in this article. A gym offers a much more thorough workout then anything above though which is why you should try having a gym membership and at the worse go to the gym a couple times a week. Then the rest of the week you can work on certain things at your home, and this way you're getting plenty of exercise.
