Turn Your Couch into a Home Gym!

Today is a workout day for me.  I plan to walk on my Precor while watching 24 since my time is tight tonight. (Cooking diner, cleaning-up, going grocery shopping, watching the 2 hour special of 24.)

Getting an home exercise machine that you use while watching TV is pretty sweet. 
You can just pedal or walk at a comfortable pace while enjoying a show or movie!

If you are new to being healthy -  a great way to keep your spot on the couch -- and burn more calories -- is to exchange your footrest with a pedal exerciser.

Digital Mobility Aid Pedal Exerciser for Arms & Legs
These babies are super small and cheap!  They range from just a stand with some pedals on it  ($25)  to high end models like the Genuine Magnetrainer ER (Extended Range) Mini Exercise Bike with silent magnetic resistance, and a display for distance and calories. ($130) You can even put it on a table and work your arms too!

But the BEST part is you don't have a HUGE bulky piece of exercise equipment taking up half of your living room!  Even the nice ones only weight about 25 pounds a unit. 
I am thinking about getting one for under my desk at work!

Take care!
