* Stairs - If you have stairs, spend 30 minutes walking (or jogging) to burn some calories.
* Raid the Cabinet - Canned vegetables also double as excellent free weights.
* Go Online - There are plenty of workout videos online ranging from yoga to kickboxing.
* Break Out the Shovel - Shoveling snow is actually a great total body workout, and it's something you'll have to do anyway.
With the storm approaching, make sure you're prepared. Check out the American Red Cross's guidelines to follow before, during and after a winter storm.
