Look for Fitness Opportunities!

Get Fit Quick Tip:

Look around you!

Increase your physical activity by looking for fitness opportunities around you during the day. For example:


Stairs. Use them!

Walk while waiting. If an appointment is running late, leave your cell phone number at the desk and head out for a walk.

Play with your kids. Hit the monkey bars, swing or balance beam!

Socialize and exercise with your co-workers or friends. Schedule a walk and talk to catch up.

Go without a cart. Shopping? Carry your items if possible.

Lift, carry, bend, push, pull! Not all fitness has to be structured to count, add in everyday fitness by looking for active opportunities around you.
