I generally prefer aerobic exercises, but have challenged myself to work other areas of my body. In the past I have been a dedicated walker, still enjoy it, but I have limitations I am working with. For now, I have surprised myself by adding wii games to my short strength training workouts. I am finding that machine very helpful. However, I am hoping to be able to find some hydratherapy. I loved my water aerobics class when it was available. Verbose as usual-never seems to be a simple answer. I should say eclectic and leave it at that.

I enjoy aerobics class, weight training and yoga/pilates. These are all good cross training for walking. I walk long distances (half marathons) I'm in training now for a HM in Sept. I agree that working out isn't always the most enjoyable thing, but as you say, it makes you feel/look good and I find if I have a goal, such as a half marathon to train for, I'm more motivated.

I hate to exercise but I love the benefits and results I get from doing it. I've learned to like walking.
Today I've found an exercise that I really enjoyed doing and it was so much FUN: Water Exercises. The class was not easy at all, but lots of fun. I'm glad the teacher is superb! it made the whole difference. I'm committing myself to keep going to these water exercise classes, at least twice a week.
Can you please share a form of exercise that you enjoy and it's fun for you to do?
It is so much easier to do exercise you enjoy.
