Exercising does not have to be exclusively done in a gym or in a sports complex. Whether you are in the office or at home, without any exercise gears at all, you can always do your aerobic exercise anytime. There are no excuses for it.

Getting a good aerobic exercise although you have an 8-hr/day work is sometimes the most difficult thing to do. You would need to find the \"right time and place\" to get your workout done. But what if I could show you that you do not need to find the right time and place as this can be found just about anywhere and anytime? Not convinced? Then read on:


Take advantage of the stairs in your building. Use it to your maximum advantage to get a great cardiovascular aerobic exercise before you start your day's work. During lunch breaks, use the same stairs in going down to get your meal then climb up again after lunch for the afternoon shift. Do the same when you go home after work. However, if you are someone who is wearing high-heeled shoes for work, I recommend that you wear your running shoes while on the stairs with your high heels inside your bag, then change shoes when you enter your office. It just takes a little ingenuity for you to get into good shape even while you're in the office the whole day.


If your work starts at 8AM, try to get up as early as 5AM and do a 30-minute jog around your place. If the weather outside is terrible, do an aerobic exercise for a good 20-30 minutes. Work out routine aerobic exercise such as jumping jacks, knee raises, punches in the air, front and side kicks, jogging and walking in place, just to increase your heart rate for that much needed exercise. Do it even in your room or living space, prior to having your breakfast.


Some companies offer a 1-hour lunch break (sometimes more, if you work fast). Within your 1 hour break, utilize a good portion of 20-minutes to do some workout in your cubicle. Do stretching, jog in place, and some cardio-aerobic exercises. Some business centers have their own gym, so utilize this opportunity by bringing your workout outfit with you at work.However, be sure to be back at least 5 minutes before you log-in for the afternoon.


This is the best time to get a good 30-45 minutes exercise. You don't need to exercise for more than 1 hour just to get a good boost in your cardiovascular system. But if you get off from work early and have a good 2-3 hours extra time prior to having your dinner, then you may workout at your local gym near your place for the additional 20-45 minutes to improve your muscle tone. Having to workout after your day job is a stress-free way to do aerobic exercise since you do not have to keep on checking your time to get back to the office. Also, it is time for your rejuvination and relaxtion. Contrary to what some people believe that exercising is hard work, it is just the other way around. In fact, exercising helps you age slower. If you are exercising always, you will notice that if you attend a high school reunion, you would probably look at least 5-10 years younger than your contemporaries. So get into the habit of exercising now.
