This page was created to assist in three important categories that we believe are necessary to maintain your fitness goals in the long run as well as ripping the benefits of the sustained proactive lifestyle. One of these categories is:

Integrating more physical activity into your daily life. 

  • Take the Stairs: Take the stairs instead of the elevator whenever possible to incorporate more physical activity into daily routines
  • Active Commuting: Walk or bike to work or the store if it's practical. If they use public transportation, getting off a stop early and walking the rest of the way can also be beneficial.
  • Walking Meetings: Instead of sitting in a conference room, opt-out for a walking meetings. This can be a great way to get steps in while still being productive at work.
  • Shopping Workouts: Do calf raises while waiting in line, park further away to increase walking distance, or choose a basket instead of a cart when only picking up a few items to increase arm strength.
  • Household Chores: Household chores are a great way to get moving. Activities like vacuuming, mowing the lawn, gardening, or even cleaning can all contribute to daily exercise goals.
  • Social Activities: Replace sedentary social gatherings with more active ones. For example, a catch-up with friends could be a hike, a game of tennis, or a group dance class.
  • TV Time Workouts: Perform exercises like planks, squats, or sit-ups during commercial breaks or between episodes when binge-watching series.
  • Family Involvement: Set up family activities that are active, such as bike rides, walks after dinner, or playing active games together.
  • Stretching Breaks: Take regular breaks to stretch, to improve flexibility and reduce muscle tension, especially for those who spend a lot of time sitting.
  • Bike: Walk or bike instead of driving for short trips. This not only adds physical activity but also reduces carbon footprint.
  • Desk Exercises: Perform simple exercises that can be done at a desk, such as stretches, seated leg lifts, seated squats or desk push-ups during breaks to incorporate movement into a sedentary workday. 
  • Schedule Active Breaks: Schedule short, active breaks throughout the day, such as a quick walk or stretching session.

Remember to always start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your activities to prevent injury. Consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new exercise regimen.
