Creative Steps to Get Fit in 2012!

Get creative and start having fun while exercising!  You can start by incorporating exercise into the activities you do throughout the day. Exercise is anything that gets you moving. Have fun with it and challenge yourself to add movement and activity into your life in as many ways as possible.

Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

  • How long can you hold both your legs up in the air while sitting at your desk at work? Set the timer (on your oven or cell phone) for 5 minutes. Having a timer will motivate you to get as much done in 5 minutes as possible.
  • Do squats while brushing your teeth, cooking or while on the cellphone?  You can earn the benefits of being physically active without going to a gym, playing sports, or using fancy equipment. Being physically active helps you feel better physically and mentally.
