Health Tip: Get Fit During Your Commute01/23/13
(HealthDay News) -- Sitting in the car may not be the only way
to get to work.
The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions for
turning commute time into exercise time:
- If possible, walk or bike to work.
- If you take public transportation, walking to the bus stop or
train station is great exercise.
- Ask your employer's human resources department what's available
to help you achieve a more active commute, such as free bike
storage or employee showers.
- Ask colleagues if you can join them for a walk or bike to work,
or find an online group that travels the same route.
