Exercise for FUN!

From the Fitness & Wellness After Hysterectomy Articles List

What are some ideas on finding an exercise that I could stay with because I enjoy it?I would like to enjoy exercising! Everytime I decide that I must pick up an exercise regimen, I get started and stop within a few weeks because I am not having fun. Can you help me with ideas on finding an exercise that I could stay with because I enjoy it?

This is a great topic because it is true. We are more likely to pick up a habit that is good for us if we enjoy it. Here is a list of some exercises that many of the HysterSisters considers FUN!

Jazzercise Worth shopping around for a fabulous instructor. They're generally all pretty good, but the great ones make the class just fly by!

Scottish Country Dance Vigorous but you do get lots of breaks between action so it's not hugely aerobic. Gives us great calves!

Contra Dance American folk dance that involves walking to the music but leaves you breathless. It's very flirtatious, which is also fun!

Bicycle Riding Make sure the seat is comfy. Do this in a class called "Cycling" or "Spinning" or in the neighborhood near your house.

Rollerblading It's not just for kids! Find a pair that fits and a smooth sidewalk and skate away!

Ballroom Dance Lessons We've all enjoyed watching "Dancing With the Stars;" here is your chance to learn something new while you get great exercise.

Country Line Dancing Lots of dancing choices. This one is particularly fun if you enjoy country music.

Aerobic Kickbox Check out the local gym for classes.

Cardio Ball Another one that is typically available in a gym or on DVD

Hiking What can be better than hiking in gorgeous landscapes?

Swimming If you are lying on a float with a beverage in one hand and a book in the other, you are not exercising. Get off the lounge chair and flop around in the water. It's called swimming and can be a lot of fun!

Gardening It may not be aerobic, but if you've ever spent the morning pulling weeds or planting bulbs, you will agree this is great exercise.

Belly Dancing You didn't think we would forget this one. Another favorite for those who like to dance and wiggle at the same time. Add bells and sequins and you might giggle through it all.

Be sure and take a friend with you while you exercise. Anytime you have a friend with you, any exercise can be fun!
