Fit Tip: Start Out With Something You Like

Haven't started an exercise routine yet? Seize the day, but think about starting out with something you enjoy.

It is hard to maintain a routine based on an exercise that you dislike, no matter how great you hear it is for you. A good example of this is jogging. Many folks try to run because they know it's great calorie burner but the fact of the matter is that you're not going to burn any calories if you can't bring yourself to actually get out there and run regularly. Maybe down the line you'll enjoy jogging, but for now, stick to something you actually like (walking, hiking, yoga, etc.) because that will increase the likelihood that you'll do it more regularly.

i used to dread working out cause i thought that there were certain things that i had to do but now that i just do my cardio, i find that it's ok that it's all i do and i'm really happy with it. i don't have to worry about looking dumb while doing it since i know how to use the bike and the elliptical

I have an exercise routine and it is a pretty good routine, but it is always room for improvement. My exercise starts on either the elifter or the treadmill. Then from their I will lift some weights and/or depends on the day I will do some abs workout.

totally! I hated exercise for years until I tried Pilates. From there, I eased into other cardio, like elliptical training and now, running! finally I can run and have a good time. But it takes time to work up to it. I'm still addicted to Pilates 3 times a week though.

I found that doing non-exercise like things, like hiking when I was on vacation, really helped me segue into wanting to exercise. I'd get back from a hike, and in addition to great pictures, I'd feel really good for having exerted myself and want to get that feeling again.
