Secrets of Success

Small Steps



While watching tv when the adverts come on get up and do a minute of lunges, squats, press ups. Do this only during the breaks and the minutes will soon add up. If you spend 3 hours watching tv with 4 ad breaks an hour you've done 12 mins of excercise

More Information:

This gets you moving and is sustainable. If you do short bursts it's better than nothing at all and soon you'll actually feel like exercising
