Shopping…..A Workout You Will Love!

At this time of year, people spend more time in shopping centres than they do in the gym.

It’s pretty evident from my gym at least as I’ve seen fewer and fewer people turning up for their workout sessions and I’m sure this happens at other gyms too.

Ironically, the colder weather and increased temptations for treats is why it’s even more important to stick to your fitness regime.

But if you really can’t pull yourself away from the shops, how about multi-tasking and walk off your weight and get fit at the same time?

Here’s some fun ways to burn those extra calories from the mulled wine and mince pie or two

Park Further Away From The Front Door

Stop driving around in circles trying to find a parking spot that’s almost on the verge of the entrance doors. Instead park up as soon as you enter the carpark.

Carry Your Own Load

Next time you’re tempted to pass the carrier bags to your partner or friends to distribute the load, think again. Shopping bags can become great lifting tools if you are doing lots of shopping. And if you really feel in the spirit, why not bicep curl them?

Find The Stairs

Beat the queues at lifts and escalators. Walking up and down stairs adds a good burst of cardio to your shopping trip.

And finally if like me you’re totally crazy and don’t mind people watching……..

…………………… find a bench and push out some tricep dips. Yes you may get some stares but you’ll have added some strength training to your workout which will help you burn more calories!

Happy shopping 🙂
