Sneak It In and Tone It Up

Fit in Exercise No Matter Where You Are


  • I find when I am captive at the copier at work I do kickbacks, walk in place, knee lifts, etc. Who cares if you look silly. I do the same at home when waiting on the microwave. I need to add the commercial workouts while watching tv. - 7/19/2013 7:51:43 AM

    Because I live near a transit loop, I walk to the transit loop rather than walk to the nearest bus stop and on my way home I take the same route back. I find that if I haven't done it for even a couple of weeks, it becomes difficult to do, but within a few weeks, it doesn't seem as hard. And yes, I do walk up a hill both ways. - 5/24/2013 8:18:11 PM

    I have found, for me ,a lot of moving is trying to be mindful each day of the benefits from moving. I try to park far from the grocery store, pick up a stray cart and return the cart to the collection spot as I leave. I started to walk around the parking lot at work on my breaks, it was only a few minutes 2 times a day -that was almost 2 years ago after hip surgery. I gradually have increased my walking at work to 2 miles every day. It takes personal committment for me as there are no followers and I walk solo. My motto is "move to keep moving, and keep moving to move". Never give up on are in control of your health...staying motivated is the challenge. - 5/23/2013 11:03:49 AM
  • I've see some of these before but I'm definitely going to cash in on a couple of these dancing being one of them! - 5/23/2013 9:54:08 AM
  • Thanks alot. I already do alot of yard especially in the summer. I love outside in my yard and garden in the summer. - 4/29/2013 8:30:03 AM
  • the commute exercises just went to a mr peanut commercial with no exercise - 2/7/2013 9:09:49 AM
  • great ideas some I already do but I have just found out that brisk shopping counts as
    exersize. basically just get up and out. - 1/28/2013 2:16:09 AM
  • There are great ideas here -- many I already do. However, this article contradicts other SP articles that say not to rely on these tasks as actual fitness activities. I hate to be critical like this, but I see it over and over on here and it has started to niggle at me. - 12/12/2012 2:05:33 PM
  • I have a desk job and it helps a ton with my back if I get up and walk, stretch, do jumping jacks, wall push ups. My co-workers have gotten used to seeing me doing some pretty goofy exercises right out in the office area. I also work standing at my desk, alot! Especially while on the phone, filing, sorting mail, coding invoices...etc. - 12/12/2012 1:45:50 PM
  • So often we don't think we have time for fitness, but sneaking it in in the ways described above, make it easy to get in fitness minutes. - 12/12/2012 12:45:58 PM
  • Readers Digest published a great book called Stealth Health. Long before I found SP, I was inspired by how easy it is to painlessly sneak more activity into your day. I'm up to 27 min so far today! - 12/12/2012 10:48:46 AM
  • This makes so much sense to me, especially because I'm at m computer so much in my day. Thanks, Spark People! - 8/21/2012 5:13:10 PM
    I have joined a fitness center that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Therefore, I have no excuse not to go at least once a week! - 7/30/2012 2:14:14 PM
