I use videos mostly because it's easier for me to exercise at home. I have 30 Day Shred and Last Chance Workout. I do SparkPeople videos and also if you go to www.exercisetv.tv, there's alot of free workouts there too. I am going to the library this week also to see what they have.

I'm sticking with my Wii right now. I have a new game called Walk It Out and can average a 2.5 mile walk a day on it getting in way over my step totals for the day and burning more than my daily share of calories....

if it ain't broke...don't fix it (yet)

Whether you think can or cannot do something- you're right.

Two days of Zumba and two days of circuit training in the pool for sure each week. Two days of walking if my schedule doesn't allow for the Zumba or the CT.

I use my Wii Fit Plus and do 11 minutes of yoga and 21 minutes of step aerobics. When it's not so hot and humid I also walk up to 1.5 miles per day with my kids, but haven't in the past couple months because of the heat.

I swim and take aqua aerobics classes twice a week, work out on elliptical or bike or stairmaster all the other days. And I do lots of gardening and farm work for both cardio and strength benefits. I take two strength-training classes and do a third strength workout by myself each week. I also have a yoga classes and two or three workouts on my own plus Pilates once or twice a week. When the weather cools some I'll be hiking and biking and swimming more outside.

Hi everyone,

I walk, and I love my Mini Trampoline. I also have a step for step aerobics, and I like to set the trampoline and the step up in my sitting room, put on a selection of music and take turns on them depending on which songs randomly come up. :-)

Currently I am working through Mark Fenton's 52-week Walking Plan Book (only at week 2 of the warm-up month but you have to start somewhere) I also walk to get shopping and when I need to get into town, doing at least 14 miles a week most weeks.

On top of that I am working through the SP 28-day Bootcamp Workout Challenge as best I can. I can't do a lot of the moves but I am gradually swapping out exercises I can't for those I can and completing it that way. I wasn't really doing anything you could describe as 'strength training' so I needed this. It is interesting to do because it has shown me that there are more things I can do than I thought, though anything on the floor is a huge challenge (getting back up off the floor being the hardest challenge of the lot. LOL)

Hugs,
Lex xxx

emoticonemoticonemoticon is my only form of exercise right now. I know I need to do some strength training or other core exercises, but I'm gonna keep on doing what I'm doing until I get the ambition to do more. At least I'm moving emoticon

Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

Speedy-keep with it. I have horrible knees and I always tell myself "if this is all I can do...then I will keep doing that"...I have progressed from doing only pool work and pilates to being able to do some running and biking. But I know that as time goes on I will be able to do less and less...but I will always do what I can!

Right now I run 2 days a week, bike 2 or 3 days a week, swim one day a week, and do a few other workouts of circuit strength training, walking, or other exercise videos.

Oh, I'm so glad you asked..... housework and gardening have been all I can do. Both my knees are shot so I quit any routine exercising including walking years agoemoticon Thanks to SP this week I started doing aerobics in our pool. 10 mins. Monday, 20 mins. Tuesday and 30 minutes todayemoticon

Now I feel like I've combined the nutrition with exercise and there's NO stopping me nowemoticon +emoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

I do a minimum of 30 minutes either walking or on the bike (recumbent). I do more if time permits which is usually most days. I also do strengthening 3 times a week using Spark exercises. Seems to be working for me.

My favorite is riding my Harley, because it is
work,
and otherwise I like to walk and now and then when
I cant go outside I use my stationery bike.

I do aerobics on mon, wed, and fridays. On Tue and Thursdays I do Yoga (strength training) in the morning with abdomen exercises and in the afternoon on those yoga days I ride my bike for 30 - 60 min.

I'm finding I have more energy now ! : )

My main cardio is walking. Walking with Leslie Sansone dvd's, on my treadmill, or sometimes outside.
I also do strength training and am working on building a stronger core.

I walk for exercise, wearing a pedometer. Three days a week I do Pole Walking or Pole Trekking is another way of saying it. I use poles like ski poles and walk with them. It is supposed to be good for upper body strength and also balance.

What do you do for Exercise?
