If it’s not walking weather, you can still keep moving. There are plenty of indoor options to help you stay fit this Monday and throughout the week.
Make plans to do your Monday Mile indoors when the weather is shabby or you’d prefer to be indoors. Indoor walking fits conveniently into many places and schedules. You can even break it up throughout the day until you reach a mile or 2,000 steps.
Treadmill – If you have a gym membership or exercise space where you work, a treadmill is the easiest and most precise way to walk a Monday Mile indoors. The machine can simulate natural inclines like slopes and hills and change speeds to accommodate your pace.
Stairs & Floors – Use the stairs and floors for brief spurts throughout the day. Your efforts will quickly add up to a Monday Mile. Make it work by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and get up frequently during your work day to climb a few flights of stairs. To spice it up, encourage your co-workers to join in.
Malls –Malls are convenient and protected places to make your strides indoors. Malls are well lit, have facilities like restrooms and water fountains, and depending on the time of day, are generally stimulating and interesting.
Walking at Home – Pop in a DVD or stream a walking-related fitness program in your living room. High-energy instructors guiding you on a fun program for 20 or 30 minutes will brighten your mood and keep you moving.
Walking is one of the simplest ways to get more exercise for people of any fitness level and age. It’s good for your heart, bones, muscles, weight, and your mood. This Monday, don’t let anything stop you, not even the weather. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
