Summer heat can sometimes be brutal when trying to be physically  active. The best route is to try to find ways of being active indoors, like finding a gym or recreational center. But, if cost is an issue, you can try these ideas for activity at home.

Wii Fit.  You see your kids doing it, why not join them? This is a good way to get started doing more physical activity indoors.

Workout DVDs.  Insanity and P90X are good sources for more intensity. Also, fun ones to try are dance videos like Zumba. For strength and core training try yoga or pilates.

Swimming!   This is a great way to burn calories and stay cool. Look at your local community pool or recreational pool for hours of availability.

Household chores. Vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning can also burn calories.

Early Hour Walks.  Walking 30 minutes briskly in the morning when it is cooler may be tough to get started, but it will provide you with more energy throughout the day as well as relief and satisfaction that you got your workout done for the day.

We all know working out in the heat is tough, but get CREATIVE! And feel good about putting those shorts and sleeveless shirts on!

    This is great advice. The heat can often make you uninspired when you try to convince yourself at the end of the day to follow through with that workout. Doing something active indoors can make sure that you stay on track.
