It seems that housework could be a much cheaper alternative to losing weight than going to the gym, as a study has shown that 8 hours of housework can help one to lose 8lb a week. Experts say that 8 hours of half decent exercise should be enough to keep the average person fit and slim and it’s definitely a cheaper alternative as gym memberships can cost up to £90 a year. The key is to make the most of the cardio-type activities such as mopping and hovering to make sure that your heart rate rises. News Source - Female First 22/05/13
Lucia, Brand Manager at fitness equipment supplier Gymkit UK, said, “I can certainly see that housework is enough to keep somebody fit; I work up a sweat when I do mine what with carrying the hover up the stairs and scrubbing the bath! It’s a great way to incorporate some exercise in to your lifestyle as it’s far cheaper and you are getting your chores done at the same time.” Gymkit UK is a company that is very much in favour of making exercise as convenient and inexpensive as possible. They have been selling second hand gym equipment for 12 years now and as the economic state of the UK doesn’t appear to be improving, they are finding working out at home to be increasingly popular.
