1. Calf raises

Skye does these while she's brushing her teeth, or while she's in the shower. It's a great way to strengthen your ankles and arches, while toning your lower legs at the same time.

How to do it: Simple lift your body up onto the balls of your feet and hold for a second or two. Repeat for 30 seconds.

2. Lunges

Lunges are easy to work into your daily walk. Skye practices this by incorporating walking lunges into her routine. She'll pick a point in the distance and tell herself that when she reaches it, she'll do ten walking lunges. Another suggestion: set your phone or time to go off every few minutes and do 20 lunges when you hear the alarm.
