Just when at ALW we were wondering how our old jolly jogs would be compromised during monsoon, and idea struck us! Why not enlist things to stay fit without really going out.
In India and especially in Indore, the roads during monsoon get uglier. Nobody feels like coming out of the house. And going to the gym on these roads comes all the more with much difficulty. Many of our team members usually go for a walk or a jog. They also need an alternative.
Well most of our alternative ways aren’t that special. They are regular but smart ideas to just stay fit and healthy during monsoon too. Take a look:
Indulge in cleaning: Obvious, ain’t it? Weekends can be the perfect time to indulge in some cleaning. It has twofold advantages: one, it will give you some chance to get a natural kinda exercise right at home. Two, the exercise would do the trick for the filthy floors during monsoon.
Climb: If not trees, at least stairs. Set a target of either minutes or number of rounds on the staircase inside the house. How else can you better tone your body than this?
At-home gymming: It is okay if you cannot go to the gym at the moment. Even the simplest of stretches , sit-ups, waist and knee bends etc can give you the best of exercises. If you have dumb bells or treadmill, nothing like it. Time to use them or buy them. Do not take it lightly, even if you do it for like 20 minutes a day. That is enough to give your muscles a real good break.
Just dance: Watch contestants shake a leg in ‘Just Dance’ or any other reality show on television. Follow their footsteps. Dance your heart out. Get a few friends or family members to accompany you. This is a great way to burn calories and have fun at the same time.
Well does that sound easy? It’s really no big deal, if you are willing and really committed to stay fit. That’s what we have been doing at ALW too.
