If you don’t want to jog, try to walk a little faster. Getting your heart rate up can help you to improve your level of fitness.

If you don’t want to take 10 flights of stairs, for example, consider walking up the first 5. gradually increase the number of flights of stairs that you take. After a while, you may find that walking up 10 flights of stairs is easy.

Find a Sport You Love
