    Being a couch potato reaching for the bag of chips does not count. ;)

    I have recently begun trying new things as my town offers free group training sessions every week. I tried yin yoga and I love it. I will definitely keep that up. This week, I tried crosstraining. I almost died. 2 days later, my body still hurts. So I will try that again.
    Next, I will try water gymnastics and qigong. Possibly give inner strength a try, and plain yoga too.

    I try to do it every day.
    I was a fanatic swimmer when I was young. Unfortunately I had to sell the ranch with the swimming pool.
    Game sports, especially if there's a ball involved.

    I'd love to be a gymnast or ice-skater, or something else that looks fabulous.

    Up until about four years ago I was a member at a local gym but due to family and work commitments I had to cancel my membership as I simply wasn't getting time to get there. However, since joining Slimming World last April, as part of my routine I include - regardless of weather - a daily walk round the block at lunchtime at work and combined with improving my eating habits this is working well.

    Living close to the beach has its perks, especially when those heatwaves hit here in Oz. Nothing like a walk along the beach early in the morning (generally on the weekend) and another walk in the afternoon (during the week) to calm those stresses of daily life.

    What is your exercise routine?
    I try to get to the gym every day and do 20 mins on a crosstrainer and 20 mins on a stationary bike. I don't like doing longer because I would get bored and lose interest. My strategy is to do a little but do it regularly.

    What form of exercise do you like best?
    Running. It's tough but it is one of the few forms of exercise for which you carry you entire body weight so every minute you run will have a greater impact on your fitness compared with other exercises such as swimming or cycling.

    And what doesn't fit you at all?
    Most group exercise classes. I prefer to go at a pace that works for me rather than one dictated by someone leading the class.

    I spent most of my school days getting out of PE and skiving, I hated hockey, couldnt run and was out of puff at very little, so I dogged it as much as i could or note from mum saying i have a cold!!!
    Im quite slim but have rotten lungs and get SOB!!

    What is your exercise routine?

    Now I go to Zumba and Pilates both x 1/week
    and on a nice day I dig out my bike and cycle 6-10 miles depending on my legs!!


    What form of exercise do you like best?

    Cycling in the sun!

    And what doesn't fit you at all?

    Just about anything else, I cant run and get a stitch very easily

    I tire and fatigue and have poor exercise tolerance

    The laugh is I work in a hospital and patients think I look sporty! :lolling:
    Nothing could be further from the truth

    I don't do exercise. I do 12 hour shifts at work. On my feet and constantly moving for most of that time. If God wanted me to do exercise treadmills would grow on trees.

    Somedays I go to the gym and do cardio (usually running/walking on the treadmill). Other days I do different workout videos from Youtube that are a combination of cardio and targeted exercise of specific muscle groups. Lately I have been enjoying Tom Daley's Youtube workout videos. It has nothing to do with the fact that he looks like this and has a sexy British accent:

    Here he is teaching me about healthy eating:

    For the most part I enjoy running on the tm and listening to music.

    Anything that requires too much coordination is often frustrating to me. I struggle with yoga.

    My exercise is walking , I have arthritis so I have a hard time doing many exercises.
    I was thinking about swimming but @Barbara Fan posts about urine in pools has me thinking twice about that.

    I love dancing but it is hard to enjoy it recently I don’t dance much anymore.

    Everyday I count my blessings my ancestors left England in 1852 and settled in Australia. Like any western country we have our issues but on the whole it's a brilliant place to live. If I've had a stressful (which is rare) day at work I'll drive straight to the beach, kick of the shoes and socks and just go for a leisurely walk along the beach with the salt water tickling my toes. There is something about the ocean and salt air which washes away day to day crap. I'm more into relaxation nowadays than physical exercise, besides I'm on my feet all day.
