What is Gardenfitness.com?
A: Quite simply, it is a site about turning lawn care and gardening into fun fitness activities instead of chores.
At Garden Fitness, you’ll find a complete six week fitness plan, gardening tips, a message board, equipment ideas and more. Use the navigation bar at the top of the page to click to different sections.
Have you ever seen someone circle the parking lot five times to get the closest spot, only to go into a gym to walk on the treadmill for exercise?
Instead of thinking of exercise and fitness as something separate, we want to show people how to incorporate it into every part of their lives.
Park at the end of the parking lot and walk an extra 50 yards. Take the stairs if you’re only going up or down a few flights instead of taking the elevator. Use a manual reel mower or take your gas mower off “self-propel” mode and push it yourself. All of these things add up, but you’ll hardly even notice as you do each one.
We’re not saying that going to the gym is bad, or that you shouldn’t jog around the block or walk on a treadmill. If that’s what you enjoy, then by all means, keep doing it! But if you’re the type of person who dreads going to the gym, or who can’t seem to find enough time to work out, then adding fitness activities into your everyday routine will make you happier and healthier with no extra time spent. Even if you’re already a fitness junkie, converting to a more active daily routine can only help.
Little things make a difference!
