According to Health Day News household chores may help those who are suffering from hot flashes and night sweats. "...investigators found that women with higher levels of daytime activity reported fewer nighttime awakenings and better sleep. These benefits were mainly associated with household and caregiving chores, rather than sports or exercise, the study authors noted in a news release from the North American Menopause Society." more

I shared it on Facebook with the qualifier "I am sharing this purely for the laugh value". I don't have time nor can I afford to go to the gym. I can get plenty of exercise in my house without resorting to doing chores.
