TO GET FIT?” Yes, I Am Really!

Of course you know doing strenuous cardio exercises like (running, boxing, or dancing) are great ways to build up your stamina and condition the heart. However, what you may not know is doing strenuous exercises aren’t the only way to burn calories. There’s another very important statistically proven way that’s often over looked that works as well.

What is it?It is doing task driven (in motion) activitiessuch as cooking, cleaning, gardening, fixing or repairing things, or simply taking the stairs instead of the elevator for short flights. Or if you’re working a desk bound job stand up while talking on the phone, and pace around instead of sitting down.

Now I bet you’re thinking, “how many calories do such activities burn?” Well, doing tasks like these may only burn 25, 35, 50 or 100 calories at a time, but as we know, it all adds up. How does it really? You might be surprised.

Now here’s the big shocker, research studies show that doing such things can actually burn up to 70% of your daily calories.However, that’s only if are task fully active. WOW! I know, it sounds too good to be true, but then again, why doubt such a good thing. So Yes, I’m Tasking You to Get Fit!
