Health Tip of the Day

Varying Your Workout

Instead of spending all of your workout time on just one machine at the gym or health club, rotate among different machines for a more complete workout. If you have a half-hour to exercise, for instance, spend 10 minutes on the treadmill, another 10 on the stair climber and the final 10 on the stationary bicycle.
