Failure at Exercise & Tired of It? Discover Your Preference!

Do you feel like you’re a flat flop failure at exercise? Have you tried different programs…only to end up deserting them all and remaining El Blubbo?

Maybe it’s time for a different approach. Here’s the thing, nobody will continue to work-out if they don’t like the work-out. You have to find something that you think is fun—a form of exercise that taps into your preferences.

Okay, so maybe you don’t know what your preferences are, or maybe because you’ve failed so much you think you just hate exercise in general. No. No. No. And again, I say “NO.”

There IS something that you’ll enjoy doing. Something you’ll like so much that you’ll stick with it and get results…you just have to find it. So start by thinking of things you liked doing in your youth, or things you think you might have an interest in now.

Then consider whether you like exercising by yourself or with others. My friend Kathy hates working out alone and I love working out alone. And if you’re not sure, then you need to try both. Remember that scene in Runaway Bride, where she has to try all the different eggs dishes to discover her preference? Well, that’s what you’ll have to do!

Here are just a few exercise ideas:

  • Kick boxing
  • Walking
  • Dance lessons (tap, swing, western, clog, etc.)
  • Dance at home to your favorite music
  • Martial arts
  • DVDs (the selection is incredible)
  • Gymnastics
  • Ping pong
  • Tennis
  • Swimming
  • Basketball (and yes, you can even play by yourself)
  • Team sport
  • Lessons at your local Recreation Center or YMCA
I myself am wacky for walking, so I lace up my tennis shoes about 4-5 times per week and share my passion for walking at  Connecting with other people on their journey is something that brings me a lot of joy!

So why not make this your new project…I guarantee that once you discover what you like to do, you’ll continue and be fit as a fiddle!

My favorite walking workout DVD is by Leslie Sansone...she makes it easy and fun. So if you're someone who knows you like to walk, this might be a great starter DVD.
