Office work: Don't take it sitting down!
Finding time to exercise can be a challenge. Why not work out while you work? To make office exercise a part of your routine, walk or bike to work, get off the bus a few blocks early, or park farther from the door. Stand while talking on the phone or skip instant messaging and walk to a colleague's desk for a chat. Organize a lunchtime walking group or schedule walking meetings.
Fitness tip: Get physical while traveling
When you travel, there's no need to put fitness on hold. If you're traveling by plane and time permits, stroll through the airport terminal rather than sitting at the gate. When traveling by train walk through the cars occasionally. If you're driving, take breaks to get out and stretch. Choose a hotel that has fitness facilities. Or pack your jump-rope or resistance tubes to use in the hotel room. When you arrive at your destination, set the tone for your trip by working out right away.
Traveling? Pack for a workout
Exercise doesn't need to fall by the wayside when you're traveling. Before your trip, research the hotel or nearby fitness facilities and pack accordingly. Your travel workout essentials might include athletic shoes, exercise clothing, a jump-rope, resistance tubing or a yoga mat.
On the road? Get your exercise!
Want to exercise but the hotel doesn't have a pool or fitness center? Get creative. Walk the hotel halls — or, if possible, to one of your meetings or sightseeing destinations. Take the stairs or get off the elevator a few floors early and use the stairs the rest of the way. Use a jump-rope or do jumping jacks, pushups, planks and squats right in your room.
