Exercising Made Entertaining and Convenient!
The TV Workout enables you to tone, strengthen and stretch every major muscle in your body – all while you watch your favorite TV shows. The exercises are simple to learn and easy to do. Amazingly, each exercise can be done while you watch television, including, of course, football, baseball, soccer and other sports.
Exercising ceases to be a chore and becomes part of entertainment!
Most of us spend at least an hour per day watching TV. It’s often entertaining, sometimes informative and always convenient. Now, it can also have a surprising benefit. By doing certain exercises while watching TV, you can become lean, toned, strong and flexible – and stay that way!
The TV Workout is described in a new book, available on Amazon.com in print and ebook formats. Includes over 100 color photos!
To gain the health benefits of fitness, the Office of the Surgeon General recommends that adults accumulate at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise on most days of the week. Fortunately, most TV shows, including the commercials, are 30 minutes long.
Working out at home is convenient. You’ll save gasoline and time with less driving to and from the gym. No more waiting for machines, membership fees or crowded locker rooms. The TV Workout does not require any expensive or bulky equipment. Just a few dumbbells, a couple of exercise bands and a squeeze ball.
There’s yet another benefit to the TV Workout. Recent university research has shown that for every two hours of continuous, sedentary TV viewing, the risk of cardiovascular disease increases by 15% and the risk of type 2 diabetes increases by 20%. So by working out during programs, you avoid these added risks.
So, turn a negative into a positive. Use your TV habit to build an exercise habit and to find time for getting and staying fit.

Why Exercise while Watching TV?
First, to make workouts more enjoyable. Lifting weights or jogging gets tedious. Watching sports or a good show while exercising offsets the tedium. You’ll be surprised at how easy and enjoyable it becomes to work out while watching TV. After awhile, the exercises will become second nature.
Second, to make exercising a regular part of your life. Muscles need to be exercised regularly to stay in good condition. Working out regularly also helps to prevent weight fluctuations – which are unhealthful. Regular exercise is a key to reducing fat, getting toned and staying lean. If you have a TV show that you like to watch daily, such as the morning news, you can schedule your workout at that time and automatically exercise on a regular basis. You’ll be able to use your TV habit to build an exercise habit.
Third, to save time. You won’t spend time driving to a gym, dealing with traffic, waiting for machines, and driving home. If you’re like most people, you spend many hours per week watching TV. Why not use a little of that viewing time to get fit and stay in shape.
Fourth, for comfort and convenience. Whether it is raining or snowing, or hot and humid outside, you’ll be able to exercise in the comfort of your home.
Fifth, to save money. You’ll save on gasoline and gym membership fees. If you don’t have a gym membership, you won’t have to pay initiation and monthly fees in order to get and stay fit. If you’re tired of the gym or don’t feel like your getting your money’s worth, you can cancel without feeling that you’ll get out of shape. If you have a gym membership and decide to keep it, you’ll save money on gas by driving to the gym less often – maybe just on the weekend for a heavier workout.
Sixth, to avoid the hazards of being sedentary. Watching TV while sedentary for prolonged periods increases the risk of disease and premature death. According to a study by Professor Frank Hu of the Harvard School of Public Health and Anders Grontved of the University of Southern Denmark (published in the June 15, 2011 edition of The Journal of the American Medical Association), for every two hours per day spent watching TV while sedentary, the risk of developing cardiovascular increases by 15% and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes increases by 20%.
