It is often difficult for someone who is not used to exercising to get started, and really get into a good habit. One way to make it a little easier for yourself is to find a hobby that you might enjoy, and use that as a starting point for establishing a nice routine of exercise in your life.
Some examples of things that you could consider if you are looking for activities to really spark your activity level:
- horseback riding
Each of these types of activities have their benefits and may be of interest to different people. If you like to be around friends and having a good time while you work out; team sports like volleyball, basketball, and football might be a great way to get in a little exercise.
Most towns have some sort of club team through the park & rec department, or a fun tavern league might be an option as well.
If you are looking for something low impact, swimming might be a good option. You can do this alone, or join a class at a place like the local YMCA.
Walking or horseback riding may appeal to you if you like to do things alone, but can also be great to do with a friend or family member who can help keep you motivated. I particularly like horseback riding because I get to wear some fun gear when I go.
Another fun way to get into the swing of things, is to try a fitness class like zumba. If you are a beginner or a pro, zumba is fun for everyone!
I have tried a few zumba classes myself, and it is so much fun to figure out the dance routines and really get into it!
