Drivercize Into Fitness--Use Those Pesky Red Lights, Naples, Florida

by Peggy Sealfon
The average person spends about six months of their lifetime stopped at traffic lights. With red lights ranging from 1-3 minutes in duration, I find them an annoying waste of time. So I've found a way to use the time more effectively by focusing on personal fitness. Sounds crazy but it works. I'm introducing a program that I call "Drivercize" a fitness routine you can do safely in a minute or two while sitting in the driver's seat, stopped at a red light.

Drivercize combines Interval training and Isometric exercises. Interval training is simply alternating bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity. Isometric exercises are contractions of a particular muscle or group of muscles which can help maintain muscle strength and may lower blood pressure (so it's calming you down while you're waiting for the green light). Since sitting has been identified as the new smoking in terms of the detrimental impact it has on our health, this series of movements helps improve blood flow and tones muscles. Plus, instead of being irritated you're uplifted and may actually be happy to be stopped for the next quick workout!

Here's my routine:
