Are you someone who decides to take the stairs every day to get to your office?
Or are you someone who waits 5 minutes for the elevator to take you up a few flights?
We all take the elevator from time to time.
Maybe it’s because you just had an awesome leg workout, had a long day at work, or maybe you had to carry four bags of groceries and didn’t want to drop anything.
Your challenge this week is to NO MATTER WHAT- and no matter where you are or whatever floor you have to go to….take the stairs!
Here are some things to keep in mind:
- Taking the stairs can save up to 15 minutes of waiting every day
- Climbing the stairs burns around 10 calories per minute (burns more than jogging!)
- It will get your blood flowing and boost your cardiovascular system
- It will cause your body to produce endorphins
- You’ll actually be saving energy and electricity
So, your challenge is simple. No excuses and no matter what…take those stairs!
If you want to take it to another level, you can even add stair workouts to your routine this week! They’re a lot of fun and pretty intense!
Set a 10-20 minute timer and start walking, jogging, or running up and (walking) down the stairs.
