Get the body you want, even in tight places

If UTC student Carol Meck didn't have access to the college's gym, she'd have a solution.

The 20-year-old sophomore described how she already does yoga frequently outside the gym - mainly in her apartment - to save time and reduce stress.

"Every time I study, pretty much every 30 minutes I push everything aside and do five minutes of yoga," she said.

And if need be, Meck said, her apartment also could be used for other types of fitness routines.

"You can just look online and look at different [exercise routines] for free and do them right in your room," she said.

Whatever your fitness goals are - cardio, toning, bodybuilding - they can be reached in the comfort of your own room or office space, several fitness experts said.

Sit-ups, push-ups, jumping jacks, jogging in place - there's a long list of physically rigorous activities available for strengthening and toning the body.
