"After playing for 20 years as a professional hockey player and after playing for several teams in the NHL, preparation and maintenance is an important aspect of my routine. Mario helped me tremendously to recover between games and kept me tuned up and sharp throughout the entire NHL season."

Ways for older generation to stay fit while at home.

In this article we will discuss tips and ways older generation can stay fit while at home.

If you spend a lot of time in your residence, whether is an apartment or a house there is always something to do that will keep you going and in good shape.
Of course if you have an apartment you are a little more restricted and have less things to do then if you have a house.

If you live in an apartment a great way to stay active is cooking. The key is to avoid sitting down as much as you possibly can. When you stand you burn more calories than when you sit. And when you’re cooking that’s exactly what you do. You stand and walk around the stove and the counter top. You cut the onions or any other vegetables, you’re frequently stirring, you take pans and pots on and off the burners etc.
All this activity is a great way to burn some calories. It is also fun and rewarding when you finished and show off to your family and friends.

Cleaning your apartment is another great way to stay active and burn some calories. Vacuuming, moping, dusting, wiping the windows and mirrors or any other method of cleaning is a great way to exercise and keep your place clean.

Why pay someone else to do it when you can do it yourself. This way you save some money, keep the apartment clean and stay in shape.

Of course if you live in a house then you have a vast amount of things and activities that you can do to stay fit. Cleaning around the house, gardening, fixing and repairing minor issues etc.

The more you walk around the house or your apartment, the more active you are and by implication you’re consuming more energy and burn more.
