Mix pleasure with business…AGAIN!


If you’re one of our constant readers (or not), you might remember we told you here about how shopping can also be seen from the ‘business angle’ as it helps you burn loads of calories and stay active. We will make another call to action using the same strategy and discuss one of the most popular hobbies: watching TV series!

Binge watching TV series usually sets the perfect relaxing atmosphere: lights off, comfy sofa, and some (hopefully healthy) snacks. But how about changing this whole landscape and turn it into a more active one? Imagine watching a Friends episode and hearing Joey say ‘how you doin’?’ – well, after you had a bit of a laugh, you will have to do 10 sit-ups. Whenever there’s a scene with Jon Snow in a GOT episode, you will do 15 push-ups.

As you can tell, the rules of the game are easy: you set yourself some common statements or characters from TV series, and whenever they come on your screen, you’ll do your workout! There you go – combining watching TV series with getting more and more active. If you need a bit of training before setting up your own game, try this beginners’ guide!

Besides this fun strategy to become more active, Get Set Leeds brings you more ideas to work out in the house if you don’t feel like going out, or if the British weather hits you. Options include recreating a fitness studio in your living room with the use of NHS exercises such as Strength and Flex or engaging your kids into becoming more active with Judy Murray’s top tips (who knows, maybe you’ll become a World No. 1 tennis player).

No matter what your biggest passion is, even one that seems the laziest like watching TV series, you can always add physical exercises and spice up your daily routine. Just be creative, think outside the box, and don’t forget to always mix pleasure with business!
