I remember how I wanted to try climbing for years, and when I finally got myself into a harness and climbing shoes, I fell in love with the sport and have been scaling walls and rocks ever since. It's tough to jump out of our comfort zone into something new, but if you can get over your fear, or whatever obstacle is preventing you from going for it, you'll become a stronger person both physically and emotionally.
And it's never too late to give that new something a go. Take 40-something Pamela Anderson. After being kicked off Dancing With the Stars, she told Us Weekly, "I promised myself I'm going to learn how to surf this year! So I bought myself a pink surfboard and I'm going to get in the ocean!"
Good for her for trying something different when it comes to exercise. Warm Summer weather is the perfect time to take a crack at a new sport like wakeboarding, outdoor climbing, or mountain biking. So tell me, what sport are you planning on giving a whirl?
