CHECK out this Mr Muscle — a man who keeps fit by doing housework.
Fitness-mad Stephen Markovich calls it Aerobic House Cleaning when he turns his chores into a calorie-burning workout.
The 57-year-old data analyst does squats while cleaning the windows, gets his calf muscles working by doing lunges as he hoovers the floor.
He vacuums the stairs on tip toes and even uses furniture as makeshift weights — lifting the sofa up and doing press-ups off his dining table.
Stephen, from Crescent Springs, Kentucky, US, said: “Millions is spent each year on gyms, health clubs, home equipment and silly diet pills.
“I wanted to show overweight people that there is a way they can stay in shape outside of these traditional routes.
“Everyone has to clean their house, so why not look at it as an opportunity to get some exercise?
“My family is used to seeing me doing my routine and it amuses them but they understand it is what I want to do to stay fit.
“It saves time and money and, as you can see, it certainly works.”
The married dad has now decided to cash in on the idea and has created an Aerobic House Cleaning manual he plans to sell as an e-Book.
