Many of us feel exercise is like a pill to take to stay healthy, like cramming going to the gym and grinding out half an hour on the treadmill into an already busy schedule. But others are lucky enough to find activities they actually enjoy and look forward too. That has been the case for me much of my life. For a short time, after I was diagnosed with hip arthritis and had to give up running and hadn’t yet found a fun replacement, I found out what the “taking a pill” version of exercise felt like. I vastly prefer making it fun.
I will be presenting overall suggestions on making physical activity fun here, as well as specific tips on some of my favorites like walking, hiking, biking, paddling, and Heavyhands
Stay tuned. Also please feel free to contact me about how you make exercise fun or what your favorite is (ahem, please keep it clean folks). I’d love to add your version under “other stories”.
