If you're like most people, finding time for
exercise is difficult. Here are my "top 10"
tips to help you in that quest..

is when your exercise time is least likely to
get interrupted by other things.

but you can certainly cut out a few hours of
television a week to make time for exercise.

up a little earlier to get your exercise done
first thing in the morning.

treadmill and spend some of your reading time

spend your time everyday, then determine how
you can better use your time to fit in exercise.

things you enjoy.
