Call us crazy but we could picture ourselves lifting weights if the weights doubled as a phone! “Hello...pant, pant, what? Hold on, we need to finish this curl…”

Okay, if that isn’t working for you, how about the wheel-less stationary bike that goes under your desk? Called the Pedal Exerciser, you’ll be doing the Tour de France in no time.  You probably shouldn’t share what  you’re doing with your co-workers.

Dog treadmill. Are we the only ones who think this is insane? You can buy one at numerous sites, with such classsic warnings as:

Hold any treats in front of him while he is exercising on the mill. You don’t want your dog to leap towards you. Remember, dogs think with their stomachs.

Allow your dog to release himself before the exercise.
