Exercise and Fitness The Old Fashioned Way!

This is how exercise used to be done, the old fashioned way, good old walking up the stairs to lose that saggy behind. Fitness used to come naturally!

This shot was taken in Krakow Poland, and you might have to look twice at the photo before you realize the funny side of it.


Climb the stairs for fitness!


Well in a country where most people can’t afford a gym, climbing the stairs is a great exercise option.

There are plenty of stairs available all around us, so you don’t have to look far to find them.


This is what we used to do, way back when, to lose weight. People used to move a lot more in their natural everyday chores, and getting from one place to the other. Kids used to walk to school; fewer families had cars so even the adults would do more walking. Household chores used to demand more effort and there were more people who worked at manual jobs before machinery took over.


This is why in the past exercise was not an issue, as people got their exercise naturally. Now we need to actually make an effort and go out especially with the intention of moving out bodies.


If you had to get up every morning plough the fields, milk the cows, walk to school and back and then fix the roof you wouldn’t need any extra exercise to keep fit and slim! So instead, save yourself the money on a gym and climb the stairs for fitness!
