20 Fitness Hacks for People Who Don’t Like
Almost all of us could benefit by
incorporating some fitness hacks into our days
that would improve our odds of living a
longer, healthier, and more satisfying life.
But what about those of us who aren’t cut
out to jog or workout at a gym? Are you a bit
intimidated at the thought of starting an
There are many ways
to make small, easy changes to your habits
that can make a real difference in your
fitness. Start with some of these fitness
- Ride the bus to work? Get off
a stop or two early and walk the rest of the
- Schedule walking meetings at work.
- Climb the stairs instead of taking the
elevator. Start slowly if you want. Work on
the 10th floor? Ride to the 8th floor and walk
from there. After a while, get off at the 7th
floor and so on.
- Stop fighting for the
very closest parking space. Park further away
instead of right next to the store and enjoy
- Pick up the pace and power
walk, instead of strolling. It burns more
- Walk while you talk on the
phone. Maybe you talk to your mom every
Saturday. Make it part of your routine to take
an hour-long walk while you chat. Maybe she
will walk on her end of the phone, too.
- Walk your dog a little further every afternoon
or take the route that goes up a slight
incline. Don’t have a dog? Offer to walk the
elderly neighbor’s dog regularly — everyone
will be happy.
- Invite friends and go for
a hike somewhere beautiful.
- Do yoga at

yoga video for complete beginners.

you don’t have to do them all at once. It’s
okay if you’re starting from the very
beginning. You can only do three sit-ups? Do
that three times throughout the day and it
will strengthen your abdominal muscles. Soon
you’ll be able to do more. Repeat.
a calendar where you mark down your movement
each day. “Walked 60 minutes.” “Did 15
sit-ups.” As you start seeing the numbers
mounting, you may be motivated to keep going.
- Sit all day at work? Consider a treadmill
desk or FitDesk, which is a computer desk atop
a stationary bicycle. Ride on and off
throughout your day and you’ll have a good
workout while getting your work done.
- Clean your house. Changing the beds, mopping
the floor — it all counts. Feel good about
getting in some movement while getting your
house in order.
- Wash your own car
instead of driving through the car wash.
- Mow your lawn with a push mower.
- Plant a vegetable garden and tend it
- Get a ping pong table and
challenge the kids, your spouse and your
- Do some stretches while
- Standing in line
somewhere? Do 20 reps of calf raises.
- Get a pedometer and use it (or use a fitness
app on your smart phone). At least one study
shows people increase their physical activity
when they keep track of their steps.
Some of these ideas may work for you and some
may not. Adding in physical activity to your
day doesn’t mean you must have a gym
membership or invest in a treadmill. Keep in
mind anything that promotes healthy
circulation also helps keep your skin healthy
and vibrant! Be sure to stop by Glam Spa and
let a spa professional help you select the
products and treatments that will help boost
beautiful skin all year round!
