Ok, Ok….I know, housework Yuk! You clean and it just gets dirty again! And, besides, I want to go outdoors…Spring is here, the sun is shining, the flowers blooming, what a great day for a walk in the park. Or Happy Hour with friends at one of the restaurants near home that have outdoor seating…or I can have people over and enjoy the weather on my patio! If you are like me, that’s how you would rather spend your time! Or, to be honest, doing almost anything other than cleaning. So let Concierge Services help! We offer a Gold Standard housecleaning package (6 man hours) with 67 points of clean for only $125. That’s less than $21/hour.
Household cleaning tools help you spiff up the home, but they can also be used as handy workout accessories! Built with light-weight materials and ergonomical grips, those household supplies you push across the floor can easily double as exercise equipment when you’re in a bind. They’re especially useful if you’re looking to bang out a fast workout while waiting for water to boil.
Next time you have a few minutes of downtime in the kitchen, grab a broom or mop and try this easy exercise:
Step 1: Stand with your legs about 3 feet apart. Grip the ends of a broomstick and lay it across the back of your shoulders. Twist your body to one side as the starting position.
Step 2: With your chin up and abs squeezed tight, feather your breathing as you slowly twist to the other side through a count of 10 seconds.
Step 3: Return to the starting point through a count of 10 seconds.
Step 4: Repeat three times without resting. (Note: If you can do more than 4 reps, you’re not squeezing your abs hard enough throughout the exercise.)
