Great ideas but I still hate to exercise.
Good and new ideas.
I find once I break through the excuses and get my butt into my gym I’m fine and hopefully a habit can begin to form. It’s not easy to get it going though for sure!
I hated the thought of joining the gym and found a kazillion excuses not to exercise at home. I searched through Groupon to try some new things and found something I love - kickboxing ! It's a total body workout and non-stop action for an hour. You can go at your pace and strength and there are all ages, sizes and shapes in the class. You'll be amazed at how quickly you get stronger and your body changes. P.S. I'm 61 and have about 50 lbs to lose. Everyone is so focused on their workout they aren't looking around, and I wasn't the oldest or heaviest. Find something you love so you'll stick with it! ! !
Why have I never thought about READING while on the stepper or bike? Excuse me whilst I smack my expansive fivehead... 😂
Good ideas Thx SP
Anything that motivates me to exercise is good.
I enjoy zumba/pilates to move all the muscle groups to great music.
In the last couple of years I took up Pickleball, which is quite popular in Canada and the US.
I use to play tennis as a teenage, so this is great cause I can play doubles and have fun with different partners. Check out pickleball.com on youtube to watch it.
Sorry but that article didn’t help. I still hate exercise!
