STANDING THREE HOURS PER DAY COULD HAVE GREAT HEALTH EFFECTS!!!

THE EIGHT BEST EXCUSES FOR AVOIDING EXERCISE
1) "It's too cold/stormy/snowy to go to the gym." Go online. Having a couple fitness-friendly apps at the ready ensures you'll always be ready to work out. Some to look for: Nike Training Club, which offers free workouts with rewards -- in the form of new workouts by celebrity trainers -- being issued the more you use it.
2) "I can't afford an expensive gym membership." There are plenty of ways to cut costs and still have access to amazing fitness classes. First, check daily deal sites like LivingSocial.com for offers to boot camps, yoga classes and other offerings in your area. Second, see what local athletic stores have to offer. For example, the national chains Athleta and Lululemon have complimentary in-store yoga classes, running clubs and other offerings
3) "I don't have time." More and more research has found that when it comes to working out, a little goes a long way. In fact, a study from the
4) "I feel self-conscious" New workout clothes flatter your body, wick away sweat so you stay dry and are cute enough to wear on an errand run. The key is to find ones that fit your particular body shape. For example, Hourglass shapes can rock halter-style tops and cropped capri pants with rouching, while Circle shapes look good sporting loosely-draped tops paired with colorful, fitted leggings that show off their slim gams.
5) "I'm bored with my exercise routine." Try a new class, such as SurfSet at Crunch gyms where core work is done on a surfboard-like contraption on springs, or Animal Flow at Equinox, where you spend the class moving through a challenging, body weight-based routine inspired by the way animals move in the wild. If it sounds like recess, that's the point.
6) "I can't get motivated." A friend who's also into fitness is key -- you'll be less likely to flake on hitting the gym when you know she's holding a bike for you at spin class. Another option: Try a virtual trainer. Wello.co is a new fitness service that sets you up with a certified trainer via a live, two-way web cam. Sessions begin at $19 for 30 minutes or $35 for 60 minutes, and trainers will work with you to set up a workout plan for the days you're not meeting online.
7) "I have little ones at home and don't want to get a babysitter." Mom and baby fitness classes, ranging from baby boot camp to yoga and Pilates are popping up around the country. Bringing a whole new meaning to "baby weight," these classes often have you incorporating your infant into key exercises. Search for classes near you, such asMommy and Me Fitness and Stroller Strides or look for "Mommy and Me" fitness videos on YouTube.
8) "I travel too much." In the past, working out at a hotel meant hoping you could snag a spot at the one rusty treadmill in the so-called "fitness center." Nowadays, an increasing number of hotels are making exercise amenities just as essential as Wifi. Kimpton hotels offer on-demand fitness videos. Sheraton hotels offer a workout in a bag, complete with a mat, resistance bands and workout cards that offer circuit suggestions. And Westin hotels offer in-room video workouts and allow you to rent New Balance gear, eliminating the need to shove your sneakers into your over-stuffed suitcase.
