The Wall Street Journal reports that keeping fit while cleaning the house is a great workout. No need to wear gym clothes or use the lightweight Skwoosh Fitness pad with gel on the recumbent bike at your local work-out emporium.  Steve Markovich, from Crescent Springs, KY has kept himself fit by using the “aerobic house cleaning” exercises he devised, like doing squats while washing windows or lunges and hip twists while using the vacuum cleaner.  He’s literally “turned housework into a heart-pumping, sweat-inducing frenzy”.  Now I know we would all rather be sitting on our Skwoosh Kayak gel seat cushion, or pumping water from our Skwoosh Voyager kayak seat, but alas not everyone is blessed with a nearby ocean or stream and the ability to paddle just for the sheer joy of it. Markovich has been joined by Carolyn Barnes, another house cleaning fitness devotee, whose slogans are “Get lean while you clean” and “the rag drag”.  Both Markovich and Barnes sell DVD’s teaching their house cleaning exercises on their web sites. Funny, I didn’t see them on where we promote exercise, travel and fishing for all, including  fitness devotes who like housework
