    There are tons to pick from. Don't stop looking.

    That is great advice but seldom done...but I agree we might be able to find at least something we can do to be a little more active.

Encourages us to look around ~ lots of exercise forms out there.

    My favorite exercises had to change, due to a skiing injury. So, now I am walking and doing Coach Nicole's seated videos. And I like them.

    What you are saying is totally true...if you want to make a change for the best results find an exercise you can enjoy and want to do!!
PROPMAN1 7/24/2013 9:57:00 AM

    So true! If i don't love it...won't do it.
LCRUMLEY81 7/24/2013 6:59:00 AM

    this is so true

    I totally agree with this, but for a lot of folks it's hard to find ANY exercise you love!

In my own experience, the music I listen to helps me a LOT - I try to find a piece of music or a particular band that I love listening to and then, I can focus on my enjoyment of that piece of music while I am doing that one-legged squat I HATE (or whatever your own personal exercise nemesis may be!)

Whatever works for ya!!!!

    This is true. When I am doing an exercise that I don't like I tend to give up.
JENN03275 6/5/2011 8:12:00 PM

    I never thought that I would like running. Always had and excuse not to. I started and I love it!!
