Are you ready for a workout?

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Sure, you're busy. It's tough to fit in a daily workout. But being prepared to exercise can make all the difference. Put workout clothes, socks and all, on top of the dresser. Stock the fridge with water bottles. Keep athletic shoes and socks in your car, so you can sneak in some laps during your child's practices or rehearsals or while you're waiting to meet a friend for dinner.
