Commute with a Workout
Find Time to Exercise
By Marianne Magno for Fitness Magazine
In a perfect world, we'd all have at least an hour a day to devote to our fitness. But in the real world, 24 hours a day doesn't seem like nearly enough time to fit in work, school, and family. Stop stressing! Here, are some ways to sneak a workout into your super busy schedule.

"Running is a great workout, but it's also great transportation," she says. "Sometimes I get home even earlier than I normally do taking the subway."
Not a runner? Bike to work, get off your bus or train a few stops early, or park the car farther away to extend your walking time.
