The family room get-fit kit
Pull workout gear out of the closet or other tucked-away places, and keep it in a basket by your couch or TV. If its visible and within reach, youre way more likely to work out with it, Lee says. Some secret weapons to stash in sight:
- Resistance bands
- A yoga mat
- A jump rope (equipment prices vary; all available at sporting-goods stores)
- A get-you-moving video game like Wii Fit for the Nintendo Wii ($89.99; available at game and electronics retailers). Testers of Nintendo Wii sports games had higher heart rates while playing and burned 51 percent more calories than testers using conventional video games, according to a study by researchers at the Liverpool John Moores University in the United Kingdom.
