Home Truths: What chores do you do around the house to get a workout?

We asked ESPC staff "What chores do you do around the house to get a workout?" and they revealed some great activities to us!

In the spirit of the upcoming games and the Leisure Club giveaways we decided to ask the staff at ESPC what they did to keep fit around the home. Chores can be a real downer but according to the staff at ESPC, they can be a great way to burn those calories!
