Here is a story you may relate to…
When I was younger I was a fitness-aholic, going to the gym five days a week for two hours at a time.
Then I got married. And then I had kids (two beautiful little girls!).
I wouldn’t trade my new life for the world, but unfortunately I got so ‘busy’ that I stopped exercising and truth be told…
I started getting fat!
And stressed! Without my workouts, my anxiety levels started skyrocketing.
I had to do something because I knew the benefits of exercise were undisputed. Research clearly demonstrates the importance of avoiding inactivity, but I viewed most weight loss programs to be unreliable at best.
Most studies recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of daily physical activity to really reduce the risk of dying prematurely. Diseases that can be avoided with exercise include heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and hypertension among others.
Recent Studies Show You Don’t Need to Go Ballistic!
You don’t have to go crazy with high-intensity workouts. A recent study by the Department of Health and Human Sciences states that “Most health benefits occur with at least 30 minutes five times a week of MODERATE-INTENSITY physical activity such as brisk walking.”
The report goes on to state that “The relative risk of dying prematurely continues to be lower with higher levels of reported moderate or vigorous intensity leisure-time physical activity.” So start small and increase accordingly.
So What’s the Secret?
How Do You Make Exercise a Way of Life?
Getting and staying in shape can be a challenge. It’s hard enough just to get up off the couch some days. So what’s the secret? How do you make exercise a way of life?

Make Exercise Fun with the SurfShelf!
I know myself, if I don’t enjoy something, I tend to put it off.
How often do you do things that you don’t enjoy versus things you do?
So I started thinking “how can I make exercise fun so that I’ll actually do it again?”
One sure-fire way to make exercise fun is to couple it with something that you like to do, like watching your favorite TV shows or DVDs. Pretty much any show that’s on TV is also available online for free, on demand so you can watch it anytime you want (for instance NBC.com, ABC.com, CBS.com and my personal favorite, Hulu.com all offer tons of shows, new and old).
Hour-long TV shows are only 45 minutes long online (not as many commercials!) so even if you plan to work out for only 30 minutes you might just find yourself reluctant to get off the treadmill – can you imagine that?
If you look forward to particular shows, save them for your workouts. And if a show or movie is too long for one workout, break it into two and it will be “to be continued”. That way you’ll actually look forward to your next workout!
Do you like being productive? The SurfShelf is great for that too. Do your emails or other light work while on your mini treadmill desk every morning and your workout is done for the day!
Plus, it works great for books and magazines as well, so if you need to do some reading, you’re all set.
