MAKE IT EASY
Forget the gym -- you can stay in shape without committing large blocks of time (or large amounts of money) to the battle of the bulge by trying some creative multitasking. Add an exercise component to everyday activities, and improving fitness becomes a breeze.
BRUSHING YOUR TEETH
Don't stare at yourself in the mirror while brushing your teeth. Instead, try holding a deep squat (with hip joints bent at knee level and knees directly above the ankles) to strengthen core and glute muscles without adding time to morning prep.
CHOOSING THE STAIRS
The average American spends more than four hours a day watching TV, according to Nielsen. Get in shape by walking (or jogging) in place or doing lunges while watching the news. Run around the house during commercial breaks and stow a set of weights for doing reps during shows.
