YMCA: No Excuses


UPDATED: Saturday June 1, 2013 9:00 AM

As cited in a Men's Health article, time is the No. 1 excuse individuals make for being sedentary. But with the following tips, even those who are short on time can get active.

Get to the gym early to avoid waiting on machines and equipment.

If you have a trampoline in your backyard, use it! NASA found that 10 minutes on a trampoline burns the same number of calories as a 30 minute run, and it’s much easier on the joints.

Get active to boost your immune system so you take fewer days off of work!

Lunch break workouts are a great option.  If possible, ride your bike or walk to work. 

Finally, instead of long, boring cardio sessions, use high-intensity interval training for a quicker and more effective cardio workout.
