Article of the Week
I am regularly asked "what is the best type of exercise to lose weight/get fit, etc". The simple answer is the best exercise or activities for you, are the things you enjoy.
If you have a sport you enjoy playing, especially if it is a team sport which you play with friends, you aren't going to feel like you are exercising, you are simply doing something you enjoy, and you will look forward to it.
Training with a friend or a group is a great way for you and them to stay motivated. The accountability of knowing someone else will be turning up for the walk/run/swim/cycle/whatever, is sometimes all the motivation you need to keep up your exercise regime. Of course, the social aspect can't be underestimated, too. Just don't get carried away with the after match drinks!
Similarly, if you have activities, such as dancing, that you enjoy, you will also get a great workout.
On the other hand, if you love swimming, but hate running, for example, then it is difficult to keep up an exercise program if that is based on lots of running. This is especially true for children.
Listen to yourself. You know what you like and what you don't like. Find something you enjoy, and make exercise fun, not a chore.
