Sedentary Exercise – Indoor & Cold Weather Exercise

While there may not be any such thing as completely sedentary exercise, there are ways to get moving without the expense or inconvenience of travelling to a local gym.

Take the stairs – Stair stepping is great exercise at home and work. Even if you don’t have a set of stairs, find the biggest book you own, set it in front of the TV and step up and down while watching your favorite show.

  • Clean house – Yes, vacuuming the carpet and mopping the floor can burn calories and get the house clean too. 
  • Dance, Dance, Dance – Put on your favorite tunes and kick up your heels. Dancing is a great way to get moving and burn calories while having fun.
  • YouTube Workouts – Need new ideas? There are plenty of in-home workouts available on YouTube.  Tune in and try them out to find your favorites.
