In summer or winter, take your exercise outdoors. You can take part in so many activities. There are, also, individual sports you can use to liven up your exercise regime. There is swimming, baseball, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, walking, hiking, rollerblading and biking. You can select one or create your own training circuit.
When you exercise outdoors, you should strive for a balance of cardiovascular and strength training. For each week, try one activity that incorporates upper body strength as well as cardio, one that includes lower body strength and one that works all the muscles. Cycling is an excellent activity for building up your lower body. Hiking with walking poles will help you work all your muscles.
If you want, include your family. There are also walking and hiking groups. Friends can help you out. Supportive companionship is always helpful in ensuring you stick to your goals losing weight and getting into shape.
