The best thing for me was having a trainer but that’s not cheap.  Right now I’m loving Jillian Michael’s No More Trouble Zones video.  It has a bunch of different circuits that you can do together or seperate and it’s not hard on my asthma.

How about just walking outside?  I have a friend that walks almost daily for about an hour.  She does hills, changes her pace up, and she really enjoys it.  Of course depending on where you live it may be too cold to walk now. 

I’m a gym rat and usually hit the gym about 6 days a week, but I got burnt out and bought a hybrid bike.  So now I go out for a ride about a couple of times a week for an hour or two which I absolutely love! 

I know you mentioned exercise videos, but have you tried Zumba or the P90X series yet?  Although I haven’t tried either yet, I’ve had friends rave about them like crazy.  Also having someone else to work out with makes it much more fun too.

Oh!  I was telling you- I really like Denise Austin “Fat Burning Yoga.”  It kicks my A*#!  It is cardio, so I get a really good workout.  It is the only thing I have ever loved doing besides just riding my bike outside or going for a walk.  It is Hatha Yoga, and yes, I am covered in sweat after ๐Ÿ™‚

I tried p90x and HATED it. I thought tony horton was a tool. Right now I am doing turbo jam but I am getting bored with it already (2 weeks in) because there aren’t enough different workouts. I want to get turbo fire and insanity and mix them all together.

I joined a gym with a huge salt water pool.  I went every day for … two months.  Then stopped going.  I didn’t like how it took basically at least two hours- to drive there, shower, swim, shower.  Have old men looking at me.  I am not that good of a swimmer, (no front crawl for me- I was tramatized in swimming lessons as a child, so basically breaststroke and sidestroke and backstroke) so I kinda felt shy there.  Also, I don’t really like gyms or having to change at them or having to drive to them.  I like something I can do at home or just right outside my door.

I also ran all last summer.  It was hard on my joints and my back- that is why hatha yoga is so great- it is cardio, but also strength and flexibility.  It always clears my head, which is nice too.

I get so bored too with my excersize routines and have to change it up constantly to stay motivated. Right now I go to the gym during my lunch break with some co-workers, so that helps me stay motivated. I also like Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. There are 3 different intensity levels and each workout is only 20 min long, but it’s intense! My Fiance does P90X religiously and he got very lean and strong (so sexy!) so I may try to incorporate that into my routine too, altho it’s very difficult. What doesn’t work for me is the same old routine every day. I need to keep it varied or I fall off the wagon.

I go to the gym and do weight and cardio machines. Some days I look forward to the gym and some days I really have to force myself to go.

Are there any sports you enjoy? I try to get at least one tennis game in a week with a friend to switch things up. I also like hiking, but haven’t been in awhile.

@bestbuddies: Yes you should give your muscles a break of 48 hours between intense workouts.

@bestbuddies: I’m not sure.  Probably because they think it isn’t intense enough?  I can’t do the same workout for 10 days straight though!
