Staying Fit When You Hate Exercising

With the new year fast approaching, many people will be making resolutions to get more fit.  If you hate exercising, this may seem like a daunting task.  If you want to be more healthy and physically active, but the thought of going to the gym fills you with anxiety, check out this list of nine ways to “work out” that you will enjoy so much that you won’t even realize your exercising!

Hiking.  Whether you like the solitude of hiking alone or you would rather go with family and friends, you will be surrounded by the beauty of nature and wildlife and you will walk miles before you know it.  Great Places to Hike in Tampa Bay

Walking.  If you don’t have time for a hike, go for a walk instead.  Even a fifteen-minute walk can get your heart pumping.  Walk in your neighborhood, or during your lunch break at work.  One way or another, get those steps in! Health Benefits of Walking 30 Minutes a Day

Larping.  Live action role playing.  Ok…that sounds a little silly, I know.  But for those who enjoy doing it, it’s an adventure that not only gets your imagination going, but gets you up and moving and interacting with other people as well. Live Action Role Playing Groups in Tampa

Rock Climbing.  It’s one of the best back & arm workouts you can do and when you reach the top of the wall, you will feel a sense of accomplishment that will set a positive tone for the rest of your day. Vertical Ventures Tampa

Geocaching. For the adventure nerd in all of us…geocaching allows us to be real life treasure hunters and get a great work out at the same time! Geocaching Tours in Florida

Dancing.  So many types of dance, so little time!  You can try swing dancing, Latin dancing, tap!  The options are limitless! Get your boogie on and get a great workout at the same time! Best Ballroom Dancing Lessons Tampa

Martial Arts. Just like with dancing, there are loads of different types of martial arts.  Not only will you learn to defend yourself, but the practice of martial arts can be a stress reliever. 17 Best Martial Arts Teachers in Tampa

Cleaning.  I’m shaking my head as I type this, because really?  Who likes cleaning.  But by thinking of it as a great way to get fit, you can kill two birds with one stone (so to speak).  Blast your favorite music at max volume and see how much you can get done during one song. Make it a challenging game and before you know it you will not only have a clean house…but you will have worked up a good sweat too!

Play outdoor childhood games with your kids and their friends. Hide and seek, tag, red rover, kick the can.  These games will keep you moving…and probably laughing, while you enjoy quality time with your kids!

So, if “exercise” is a bad word in your book, remove it from your vocabulary and replace it with one of these fun and exciting ways to stay fit!
