Work out while brushing your teeth
Fitness Flower is an easy way to make working out a part of your everyday routine. It’s a great way to couple many of your daily tasks with an exercise. Women busy with families, careers and volunteer commitments love not having to schedule a workout into an already packed day.
The Fitness Flower’s Bathroom Begonia starts you off with your bathroom ritual: Tone your buns and thighs while brushing your teeth or sculpt your calves while removing or applying your makeup. The newly added Office Orchid Tumbler gives you the opportunity to keep fit at the office (which also helps keep your mind sharp). Once you realize that you can sneak a workout into your daily routine without adding anything to your to-do list, you’ll be hooked. $19.95, fitnessflower.com.
