Exercises to help you shape up at home
You can't afford a gym membership? You've got no room at home for a treadmill? Sorry, couch potato, these aren't valid excuses anymore.
Because we're all looking to get in shape and save a few bucks, Chatelaine asked fitness trainer Marie Bodine to show us some simple exercises we can do at home. "Most people, when they are at home, don't want to spend a lot of time and they want to exercise several different muscles at once," says Bodine. "I like to couple different exercises together so my clients end up expending the same amount of effort as they would if they were doing each exercise separately, but they spend less minutes doing it," she adds.
There's no equipment required here and working these exercises into your regular walking or running routine is a great way to stay fit and toned.
