I don't like exercise equipment


Friday, December 27, 2013

I like to exercise using just my body. I like running and walking and hiking and dancing and yoga and even burpees. I don't like lifting weights or sitting on a ball or going 'round and 'round on an elliptical. I like using my own body to make my body stronger.

I used to think I needed the latest gadget to motivate me to exercise. I have weights and a ball and an elliptical and bands... I never touch them. My bike is about the extent of my equipment that gets used. I've only just realized this about myself, and it's helping me actually get active. Now that I know what I like and not what I just like the idea of, I can put my efforts into actually BEING active.

Now, I have found that a latest gadget is, indeed, motivating me: the Spark Activity Tracker. But what does it motivate me to do? Use my own body for exercise! It really is!

What's the moral of the story? Don't resolve to do so,etching because it sounds good. First, figure out what sounds good and THEN make a plan that fits THAT.

It's funny that I had these thoughts the same day this article was featured on SP:

    FOR SOME WEIRD REASON, EVERY TIME I HAVE USED EXERCISE EQUIPMENT, I HAVE HAD AN INJURY. WHEN I JUST USE MY BODY, I AM FINE. HMM ......

    I use the tracker. I also used a combination of dumbbells, treadmill, and body weight.
