Examples of simple everyday fitness activities are: taking the stairs instead of the elevator, recreational bicycling, going for walks, and doing enjoyable chores such as gardening. A body in motion improves metabolism, increases blood flow and improves circulation. Regular activity burns calories for weight control, builds muscle and helps to reduce cholesterol. Parents and couples who juggle work and home life seek balance in their lives. Fitness classes, exercise training programs and weight training become an exciting priority when we put workouts up on the top of our to-do lists.
