Health Tip: Get Active Indoors

Don't let winter weather sideline your workouts

(HealthDay News) -- There are plenty of ways to burn calories and get active, even indoors when winter keeps you from exercising outside.

The American Heart Association suggests:

  • Do lunges around your living room.
  • Do several sets of crunches and pushups, even while watching a movie.
  • Use the stairs. Climb up and down, and take two at a time.
  • Watch a workout DVD, and check the web for streaming exercise videos.
  • Start a family game of active charades.
