We’ve already mentioned doing the hoovering whilst wearing your belt, but you can use it whilst doing so many other chores- wearing your Slendertone whilst doing chores is great if you’re short on time.

Try walking to the shops, walking your dog or head out into the country. If you can, why not replace your drive to work with walking and your Slendertone- it’ll feel like you aren’t even exercising; just commuting!
