Exercising at home

– Mariana Braz

Life is busy, especially when you have to take care of kids and the house, and in some cases go to work.  We get stressed out, angry and moody. We almost don’t have time to take care of ourselves. It is always the excuse: “I’m too busy running the house and watching the kids”.

What if instead of going to the gym to get some exercise you do it at your house? The kids can go play in the basement or the play room while you take some time to take care of yourself.

I like to take a walking/jogging first thing in the morning. I drop the kids off at school and then I go. But when it is raining or too cold it is hard to go outside. So I bought a Core Body Reformer using my Time to Save account.  Bowflex Home Gyms is one of the hundreds of Time to Save’s partners.  They offer up to 3.5% cash back for Time to Save members.

If you have never heard of it, the Core Body Reformer it is a portable piece of equipment that combines yoga, Pilates and dance. It is a complete workout, using all-in-one equipment. The Core Body Reformer comes with 4 workout DVD’s, fitness flip-cards, weight loss plan, a workout poster, a carrying strap and a blue washable cover.

I also bought the Bowflex TreadClimber TC5 which combines walk and climbing for a more intense workout.

I absolutely love my new purchases. I exercise anytime I can and don’t have to worry about the kids, because I don’t have to leave the house to go to the gym. And because I bought them using my Time to Save membership I earned some percentage of cash back that went to my account. I can either use this money to myself or donate it to the charity of my choice.
