Being "in shape" sounds cool and all, especially as we are all trying to come up with some New Year's resolutions for 2023. To be honest, doing what it takes to get to that point is not super appealing to me. I'm not gonna lie, I am an indoor girl, who prefers watching Real Housewives instead of going out for a run. Ideally, I would like to get both of those things done, so of course, I've done some shopping in my quest to find some personal balance.
If you loathe working out, but you want to reach your health and fitness goals in 2023, I found some great products that allow me to multitask while I watch reality TV, make the most out of my normal routine, and actually make working up a sweat more fun than it normally is.
Exercise Without Getting off the Couch

A QVC shopper said, "This is so perfect for me. I'm in my 60's and this piece of equipment gets my blood going. It's so handy to use anywhere anytime."
Another explained, "I bought the Cubii JR2 last week and have been using it ever since. I didn't clear the totals every day because I was not concerned with that, only that I was moving. So, out of curiosity I cleared it yesterday and couldn't believe the totals for the day: Stride 3047, Distance 2.52 miles, and burned 404 calories while watching tv and knitting. I am so happy with my Cubii and glad that I treated myself to this!"
