You can choose to do something as simple as walking, you can take up one or more recreational sports, or you can perform a specific routine in an exercise class or at home. In fact, variety is one of the keys to staying fit.

Enjoy What You Do

There is no single exercise that can adequately build all aspects of fitness equally well. And having more than one activity to turn to keeps exercise from getting monotonous. Studies also show that people tend to stick with activities that are accessible and enjoyable.

Fun Ways to Exercise

These just a few options for having fun while you workout. The important thing is to find the activities that are fun for you.

Walking a dog
Getting outside with a dog is great motivation to walk a little longer than you would alone. Try offering to take a friend or neighbor’s dog for a walk if you don’t have one.
Moving to music is a great way to forget that you are working out.
Being out in nature and walking on a trail is a great way to forget about the daily grind.
Bike Riding
Another great way to get outside and enjoy the open air.
Activities with friends
Frisbee in the park, shooting hoops, or golfing there are many activities that you could do with friends that do not feel like exercise.

Many of the activities described within LiveKinetic provide aerobic exercise – that is, they can work your heart and lungs to promote cardiovascular fitness. In addition, they help make muscles stronger and more limber.


Training for an activity can be empowering. Learning to do something new, training hard, and coming across the finish line or riding up that big hill can give us a wonderful sense of accomplishment. The process allows us to access places in ourselves that our normal day- to- day comfort zone usually doesn’t touch. Training can be humbling for nearly the same reasons – learning something new and training hard forces us to be beginners again, and as adults this can sometimes be a difficult place to be in.

  1. I have a stationary bike that I try to use every day. In the summer I go biking outside at least twice a week.
