Starting Exercise Again?

If I were starting exercise again, my numero uno suggestion to myself would be to pick an activity I enjoy! Its that simple! We do and continue to do activities that we enjoy and love!

If I were in an "exercise rut" for months or even years, I would start exercising again by playing a sport like flag football....this would be easy for me to do and I would stay with it because I love playing sports.

What about you? What physical activity do you love? Are you in an "exercise rut?" Forget all the exercise theories and articles! Just get started with an exercise activity you love and do this activity for at least 30 minutes on most days. Before you know it, you will have started exercising regularly again (and loving it)!

Then, just add in 30 minutes of bodyweight exercises like pushups, pullups, squats, step ups and lunges 3 days a week.....and guess what? You will then be doing weight training on a regular basis.

What do you love to do? Dancing, jogging, hiking, biking, walking, gardening, swimming, etc. Pick some activity, get off the couch and start exercising again for fun!

Get started....get started exercising again today with some activity you love! Happy July 4th holiday!

  1. Great suggestion man! Sometimes we make fitness out to be something too big, almost unatainable it seems to some, when in reality it's exactly what you said, picking something physical that you love to do. Grea post!

  2. Great advice, Mark. Exercise is almost effortless when it contains an element of "fun". Kids don't run, they play tag or football or kickball. They don't do an upper body work-out, they climb a tree or swing across the monkey bars. They don't "work on their balance", they ride a skateboard or bike. The focus is on FUN, and physical exertion is merely a component to achieving it.
     
    My daughter saw an adult riding a Ripstik scooter in work-out mode (water bottle, iPod etc). Seems like a great place to start!

  4. Yeah Heather....I never went to a health club until I was an adult. I didn't need to go because my lifestyle for all those years was staying fit year round playing sports...it was just fun
