Exercise On-The-Go

Pack up your gym bag, dumbbells, medicine ball, swiss ball--be ready to "exercise on-the-go"....if you're going to "exercise on-the-go," there's no time to rush back home to get workout gear! Here are some tips:

1. Keep your walking/running shoes with you! Walk as much as possible during the day! Take advantage of every opportunity to walk. This one tip should be used all the time. It makes a huge difference in your fitness. When I used to work on The University of Texas campus, it was not unusual for me to walk up to 2 hours in a day going to different departments....and, there are alot of hills here, so that made the exercise that much better. I didn't think of it as exercise until I stopped working on campus. I soon realized that I had to take more time for "exercise".....walk, walk, walk every chance you get.

2. Exercise during your kid's practices. Why sit around for 1-2 hours watching kids practice? Take advantage of the time and walk, jog or do the obstacle course.

3. Take advantage of running trails in the neighborhoods or city. Many times when I'm crazy busy, I stop at one of the many running trails or hike/bike trails to get in 20-30 minutes of running.

4. Jump rope! You can jump rope anywhere and it burns fat and calories like crazy!

5. If you coach a youth sports team, show up 30 minutes early and get in a good workout before practice.

One reason to "exercise on-the-go" is that it takes away the "excuses" at the end of the day, "I'm too tired to workout" or "I don't have time to workout." The truth is that you have plenty of time during the day to get in your exercise!
