Paying over the odds for your gym membership? Want to exercise but don’t feel like leaving the house?
Well believe it or not, household chores actually help us to burn up to 3000 calories a year in the steps we take alone. Tasks such as vacuuming, mopping and wiping the windows mean we clock up on average 45 miles of walking a year! And all this without leaving the house.
Last year we recruited 50 ‘Floor Testers’ who we followed for six months tracking their every cleaning move and seeing just exactly how many steps they took. Here at Vileda we pride ourselves on providing cleaning products which help to make your cleaning tasks quick and stress free and we were interested to see just how much effort and elbow grease goes into cleaning our homes.
Most of us tend to fight the most fat in the kitchen…no, we’re not talking about your latest juicing diet…we’re talking about the 20 miles you walk a year mopping the floor and washing and drying that never ending mountain of dishes. We are also busting a gut in the living room by walking an average of 10 miles a year vacuuming the crumbs off our carpet and dusting the dirt from the furniture. Even spring cleaning the bathroom and spare bedroom now and again enables us to achieve a whopping five miles of fat burning footsteps a year.
So you see, you don’t have to be a fitness freak to get fit and burn off those extra pounds!
