Hi Forum,

Today I had a meeting on the 5th floor of a building. I didn't walk up the stairs, but after the meeting I walked down them. It felt great to do something healthy even though I had to sit still for the meeting.

Do others try to take stairs too?

Yay for taking stairs Woodland! They were my first exercise. I take the stairs round trip each day from the third floor of the parking garage to work on the third floor. I like that it's a neat small bundle of exercise that adds up over weeks.

Hi Woodland,
Well done for taking the stairs. I need to started doing that even if its only the coming down for the moment. Get a bit puffed going up until I get fit again.
I'm a sales rep and have been parking the car a long way off the shops in the last few weeks to get a few extra steps in. Need to start wearing my pedometer again.
Cheers ThisTime7

GREAT! Stairs are great exercise. Good to add that spontaneous exercise whereever you can.

Sometimes I'll go up and down the stairs twice when I need to get something from our basement. We live in a ranch style house - so, I don't 'need' to use stairs on a daily basis.

Great, sounds like stair walking is a popular exercise add on with you.

At home my stairs are circular so I can't take them too fast, but each week I carefully carry my vacuum up and down. I feel like that is a nice arm workout !!
