If you are looking for ways to improve your overall health without joining a gym, try taking the stairs.

Here are a few reasons why taking the stairs instead of an elevator can make a big difference in your health and fitness.

Climbing the stairs burns more calories per minute than jogging.

Stair climbing helps build muscle tone.

Exercise in general has been known to help boost the immune system, climbing the stairs rather than riding in a crowded elevator puts you at less risk of catching a cold or the flu!

Taking the stairs instead of an elevator or escalator gives you a bit more time to relax and slow down in another wise hectic day.

If you don’t have stairs at work use the stair master at the fitness center at your Long Beach apartment.
