My friend and I are both engaged and want to get back into shape. So we go to zumba and yoga classes together at a local rec center. I also try to fit in pilates when I can

I love hiking and walking, as well as kayaking. Unfortunately I live in a northeastern city and don’t have a car, so getting out to hiking trails or kayaking spots now is rare for me. But when I lived in LA I went hiking nearly every weekend in the canyons, and it was a great activity to do solo or with friends. I usually went on 1-2 hour hikes on hilly terrain, so a good workout but nothing too extreme – in LA that’s possible year round and the views are stunning, so it was a really enjoyable form of exercise. These days most of my exercise comes from walking and an occasional yoga class.

In nice weather I go kayaking, paddle-boarding, hiking, and horseback riding. In winter weather I snowshoe, cross country ski, and downhill ski.

I also love spin classes! Cycling isn’t really my thing but for some reason I love spin class.

Another vote for hiking, but I also love riding my bike.  I have a commuter bike (really lightweight) and will ride it to friends houses, the shops or drive to some beautiful bike trails (we have some great ones near the beach or through parks).

Snowshoeing is a lot of fun. I’m a wimp about cold so I don’t do it often but it’s always a good time when I bust out my snowshoes for a day. I’m not a big fan of cross-country skiing. It’s fine just not my thing.

graduatebride :  I also dislike (more so terrified) of downhill skiing/snowboarding, but find cross country skiing very enjoyable!

I go through different phases where I like something a lot and then I get bored and quit. My most consistent forms of exercise are:

Power-walking with my dog: I have freakish long legs so my “fast walk” is another person’s run, seriously people jog to keep up with me! πŸ˜‚

Tennis, but I live in Canada so it’s only a couple months per year

We have an indoor bike with a tv in the exercise room so that’s good enough for when the weather sucks/don’t have time to go out to the gym or whatever

Bodypump – it’s a cardio and weights class at the gym

 

What I’ve tried in the past:

hot yoga – did not enjoy one minute of it

barre classes – insane workout but $$$ and far from my house so not convenient to drive 30+ mins

hiking – love being in the forest, we have amazing trails around here but have come across too many bears and I’m scared πŸ™ˆ

jogging – have tried couchto5k for over 10 years and just.can’t.do.it.

x-country skiing – boring for me

downhill skiing – there’s only a few nice days here where there’s nice powder and it’s not -20, so most of the time I just freeze

There you go!

I love hip hop fitness, zumba, pole, and yoga!  I also enjoy indoor rock climbing but rarely get the chance to do it.  I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant and though I love it am pretty excited to get more active once the baby is born!

 I struggled for YEARS to find an excercise option I like. Unlike you, I was a really unathletic high schooler. O dabbled with jogging and yoga on and off on college but never did anything regularly like would try things once a month. 3 years ago I started running regularly and have run a half marathon. I also picked up rock climbing as an activity to do with my ex and I still climb 2x a week. I’m starting a swong dance class soon too πŸ™‚

I played DII sports and also found it hard to find a fitness routine that I really liked. I did take up running but I also loved doing Ashley Conrad’s workout. I did it in our school weight room and on the track and really enjoyed it. Planning on starting again in February!

I played basketball in college and the class I fell in love with was boxing. I box 2-3 times a week and love it! It’s the one workout that’s cardio and I stilll feel like I’m getting a workout in!! Definitely try it

I used to love taekwondo when I was younger, I did it for 10 years but I stopped in college and just never went back to it. Martial arts can be a really useful skill and a great work out.

These days, I love weightlifting and running. I keep trying to get into yoga to keep up my flexibility, but I just can’t.

I love running but I used to hate it – it wasn’t until my fitness level was high enough that I wasn’t sucking wind the whole time that I started to get in the zone and enjoy it.

HIIT workouts are fun (I like BBG) because you get it done in 30 minutes and can do it from home with minimal equipment. I also recently tried Pure Barre for the first time and LOVED it even though I was sore for a week! My best friend has recently gotten into boxing and her arms look incredible, so that’s definitely on my list to try. She swears by it but said finding a women-centred facility was important to her in terms of being comfortable.
