Fitting in times to exercise during a busy working week can be tough – why not look at squeezing in opportunities to get fit during your journey to work? Here are some options to help you find a fun and effective way to get more fitness time in your week.
The first easy way to add more activity to your day is to simply walk to work if possible! Lots of people get buses, drive or taxi to work when they could easily add in a little more exercise by walking at least part of the way. A 30 minute brisk walk is thought to be as effective as jogging, yet it has a lower impact on your joints. If you live too far away to walk the whole way, why not walk to a futher bus stop and get the bus for the rest of the journey?
Another cool way to get to work is an alternative to cycling – try riding an adult scooter! Yes, they look like toys for children, but a foot powered scooter is a good way to speed up your journey and still use body power to get going.
