Achieving physical fitness is not only looking and feeling great–it’s essential to a healthy body. Keeping your body fit doesn’t mean you have to look like a bodybuilder or a professional athlete, it means making time to be active!
A common excuse for not exercising regularly is lack of time. If you have time to watch your favorite television show, you have time to work out! You could even make a workout around a television show. An example is as follows.
During your television show, workout during commercials! Whatever the commercial is about that’s what you’ll do for that segment. Feel free to create your own activities. For example:
FOR EVERY: DO:
Car commercial jog in place
Food/restaurant commercial jumping jacks
Jewelry commercial 30 jumping jacks
Travel commercial 20 squats/lunges
Medication commercial planks
Health/beauty commercial high knees
Movie trailer 10 leg lifts on each side
Commercial for TV show jabs
Fitness commercial lunges
Other/Miscellaneous tricep dips
