I think we can all admit that exercise is important for every healthy person. The struggle is finding the right form of exercise that works for you.

It must:
  • be something I can do often
  • be something I consider fairly fun
  • be something that considers my family's needs (expense, child care, time invested, etc.)
  • fit my personality (social or loner, talker or music lover, etc.)
  • be an effective physical challenge
Possible forms of exercise include:
  • Fitness club class (Spinning, Zumba, Weightlifting, etc.)
  • Team Sport (Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Softball, etc.)
  • Fitness Video (Aerobic, Pilates, Yoga, Dancing, Muscle Toning, etc.)
  • At Home Fitness Equipment (Treadmill, Weight machine, NordicTrack, etc)
  • Neighborhood Sidewalks (Bicycling, Walking, Running, etc.)
Personally, I have tried many of these forms of exercise. I have ceased most of them for various reasons. Most recently, my chosen form of exercise is using fitness videos at my home with a friend coming over to exercise with me. We are able to meet regularly, keep each other accountable, supervise the kids, workout and have friend time too. YAY!
