Fitness tip: Get physical at home

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Time spent at home doesn't have to be couch potato time. Fit more physical activity into your home life with these tips: 1. Wake up 30 minutes early. Use the extra time to walk on your treadmill or take a brisk walk through your neighborhood. 2. Gather a group. Ask friends or family to join you for a walk after dinner or on a Saturday morning. 3. Be active while watching TV. Use resistance bands or do pushups or squats during your favorite show. 4. Involve the whole family. Ride your bikes. Take a trip to the pool. Have fun.
