Secrets of Success

Take Fitness Breaks Throughout The Day!



I do a lot of computer work, reading, close work. I find I, and my body feels a lot better if I take quick fitness breaks every hour. I have DVD's with 10 minute workouts, or I do stairs, or go walk around my building, anything just to get moving, warmed up and stretched out. emoticon emoticon

  • This is a great tip for those who have jobs that give them freedom of movement.
    My job, retail cashier, doesn't. Someone working on a factory assembly line couldn't use this tip, either.
    Oh well, there's really no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution to fitness. - by JRBASKIND
    When I do this (walk around the building) I always feel energized. - by SIXTEES
  • I love 10-minute workouts! - by WATOGA17
  • this is a great idea that I will put to work starting Monday. There's a set of about 20 stairs right outside my door leading to the parking deck. I think I'll go out the door, up those stairs, walk across the parking deck, down the other set of stairs, and walk around into the front of the building 4 times a day. Thanks for the idea. emoticon - by NUTSYNRS
