4 Reasons to Take the Stairs

By Virginia Laird

Have you ever considered choosing to take the stairs rather than waiting on the elevator? At the end of a long work day, it can be difficult to make that choice, as the elevator seems effortless and restful. However, there are many benefits in choosing to climb the stairs. Some of these benefits include:

  • Climbing stairs gets the heart working
  • it is great for toning the legs
  • It can be a time saver
  • Taking the stairs is free

Climbing Stairs Gets the Heart Working

It matters not if a person climbs with gusto or at a slower rate, the heart is sure to get pumping when a person chooses to take the stairs, making it a fantastic cardio builder. Climbing stairs is so great for the cardio that it can replace a workout. For those who may be looking to save some time, take the stairs at work to be able to skip the gym today.

It is Great for Toning the Legs

Climbing stairs can be one of the best exercises to tone the leg muscles, as the entire leg is engaged in the motion. A person may notice, when choosing the stairs daily, that the leg from top to bottom will begin to tone and lean up. Those people who may have a strong desire to have beautiful legs may want to make a habit out of taking the stairs. 

It Can be a Time Saver

Choosing to climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator can save time. Not only will it save the time spent waiting on the elevator and stopping on every floor, it can provide a daily workout at the gym unnecessary. This can save a person hours each week.

Taking the Stairs is Free

The best part about choosing to take the stairs, as a workout, is that it does not cost a thing. It can save a person hundreds of dollars in gym fees, personal trainer fees, or even fitness class fees. This can help to free up more money to buy that gorgeous pair of shoes you had to pass up because they were too expensive.

The next time you have the option, make your decision a no-brainer and take the stairs. While your legs may feel the stiffness of this decsion, you will be glad you made that choice!
