Get fit and have fun: Top picks from

Losing weight and staying fit and healthy can be really difficult at times, especially when you have a busy work and family life. For me, it’s not only a problem fitting in the time to go to the gym for a work out, I find it hard to drum up the motivation and always create a believable excuse as to why I can’t go.

It’s easier to fit exercise into your daily routine when you find something fun to do that burns the calories. The same gym workout every day gets boring and monotonous.

If getting fit is one of your goals for 2012 then why not take a look at my selections below, they will enable you to get fit and have fun from the comfort of your own home. All of them are from, a Give as you Live store, who will donate up to 3% to your favourite cause.
