Tips For Staying Active During Your Morning Commute

We all know that it is so important to take care of our health, right? But we also know that it can be hard to maintain an active lifestyle, especially when it seems like most of your time is spent commuting to and from your place of employment. We’re always looking for creative ways to help you live your best life so we have some tips to help you stay active during all the ways you commute around this amazing city.


Bring out the Bike

It’s one of the best ways to stay active, especially if you spend most of your day at a desk. If you have a long commute, try biking on the weekends to build up stamina before you switch fully to biking to work. This will also give you a chance to estimate the amount of time it will take you to get to work so you won’t be late.


Squeeze Those Glutes

Taking the bus? Carpooling? Try doing some isometric holds using your glutes! In other words, squeeze your buns while you’re sitting. This invisible workout will help keep you active discreetly! You can try holding this isometric squeeze for an amount of time or do several reps. Getting ready for those tempting holiday foods has never been easier.
