I have an exercise bike in the living room, in front of the TV. I now have absolutely no excuse to not exercise. I started out riding 20 minutes 2-3 times a week. Now I'm at 30 minutes every week day.

I second the vote on kettlebells. I use 'em while watching TV, and carving out 10 or 20 minutes isn't as hard as finding an hour.

If you like to watch TV, you could get up and walk in place or around the house during the commercials. You'll get in at least 15 minutes for an hour show.

I take my dog for a walk; so good 4 both of us; and it clears the head 2
I have a small elliptical machine that i can jump on anytime.
Even if it's just for 5 minutes,it's better than nothing!
i go to the gym and do a 10 min stretch run in the morn
i also love einsteen and the way he got his ideas I love to travel on the spur of the moment and i love portland oregon, hawaii. I enjoy all forms of art and the galleries
I take "dance breaks" here in the office--just shake it like a crazy to a song and then back to the grind. It helps keep me sane.

I keep a set of light dumbbells next to my easy chair to use periodically while relaxing, especially during commercials. Resistance bands would be even better, involve legs, too. I'm hoping to get a set soon.

If you have time to watch the news on TV.... why not walk in place while watching. You can get some good fitness at the same time you're catching up with the world.

In my opinion Kettlebells do it all and in very little time. They're cardio (mega calorie burn), strength training and core in one and can be done in as little as 15-20 min.

I know I've been seriously slacking as a team leader for this section but honestly I've put myself at the bottom of the list once again as I juggle 2 jobs, home life & responsibilities, and deal with family health issues.
I was hoping team members could post here suggestions for quick exercises to do while juggling a hectic end of 2011 life.
Post any ideas,
