Misread it? No, really! You can easily transform your drawing room into a fitness zone and do weights, squats, lunges even as you watch your favorite show. Too good to be true? Try using your home workout equipment or lifting dumbbells (even filled water bottles would do) as you devour the newest twist on telly.

2. Kitchen

Your domestic chores help you burn calories, so try moving about, cooking, washing, cutting veggies and organizing shelves. Not only would you reward your family and yourself with a healthy meal, but also do your body good by burning some calories.

Shake it, mama! The pumping and jiggling on the dance moves makes for a super fun workout. The zumba or salsa class you joined can give the adrenalin rush you experience from intense training.

5. Swimming Pool

Not just by swimming laps, pool exercises can help in excellent weight loss and body toning. Kick, cycle, jump, raise your limbs and find how easily your body adapts to this workout. Plus, aqua aerobics is a rage, and group sessions surely make the boring workouts much more fun.

6. Office Desk

Yoga Your Desk

Not the conventional workout place, but long hours of sitting at the desk can be interspersed with engaging stretching sessions. Do some quick stretching and flexibility exercises which make you fitter and focused.
