1. Make Use Of Existing Workout Materials

It is not uncommon for people who are house sitting to use things in the house if it is all right with the owners. It may turn out that you have workout equipment at your disposal. Cardiovascular machines (treadmills, stationary bikes) are not uncommon and many homes will have a weight set. Find out what is available within the house and then use that to construct a well-rounded workout.

2. Use Pets As An Excuse To Get Out

Does house sitting mean you are taking care of a dog or cat as well? Animals provide an excellent and smart way to stay fit. Walking, running, and biking with a dog are all great ways to socialise with the animal, help decrease their nervous energy, and also work on being fit yourself. Even playing with cats can be physically demanding if you find the right game to entertain them.

3. Make Use Of Surrounding Landscape

Do the homeowners live in an interesting geographic area? Are there cools things that can be explored around the house? Take this as a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore a new world. Get out there and walk the streets, find paths, and dedicated some time every day to pushing the limits of what you have already explored.

4. Never Stop Moving

All too often, people assume that staying fit means running, or other intense cardio activity. In fact, there are small things you can do to stay fit even without directly exercising. For example, you can elect to use the upstairs bathroom instead of the first floor bathroom, which will help you walk a flight of stairs. You can make it a point to do stretches or other activities with your legs when you are sitting still. Try to never stop moving and you will be surprised at how fit you can get without ever leaving the house. Better yet, if you are finding it hard to discover the right workout / exercise, or to keep track of your diet or fitness achievements then you might benefit from this list of apps, perfect for any athletic or want-to-be-fit person.
