    Welcome To The Wonder World Of Zumba

    I like to lift weights and ride a bike for exercise. It keeps me fit, more fit than mostly everyone I know. The kind of fit that allows me to enjoy life and makes me think that I will live to see 100 years old. While at the gym the other day, a young lady mentioned that she...

    I feel a kind of giddiness

    when I exercise; a bit of a rush of joy. It doesn't last long, but it's nice while it does last. Despite that, most of the time I still struggle to get myself started.

    Endorphins

      Exercise has so many benefits, from better mood, to healthier weight and metabolism, to destressing. I enjoy exercise quite a bit, and exercise every day. I am going to attempt yoga a bit, maybe join a class or something. Yoga is pretty beneficial too. :)

    I fill my days with exercise classes.

    From basic gym to dance and to boxercise. Yoga classes are good, spinning classes. To get sweaty with the guys in the weights gym. It's all crucial to a healthy life.

    Help With Toning Up!

    I used to be a dancer but because I'm pursuing a career in acting, I've stopped dancing. It was so hard not getting regular exercise and I felt so horrible and heavy! I joined a gym in January and I've been loving it! My first obstacle was getting my body fat percentage down and...

    About a year and a half ago I started

    exercising regularly. I've always enjoyed exercising, but I don't think I realized how much the release of endorphins truly benefitted my mental health. I'm not thin...not at all, but whenever I can go to Zumba, get on the elliptical, go for a walk, or play some volleyball I...

    Especially Body Pump And Yoga....

    These are the two exercise classes that I participate in most often. I like the health benefits, the fact that I am toning up and in terms of Yoga, I like the fact that it gives me an hour of winding down and clearing my head of everything. It is really beneficial to me.

    It was so fun, I'll do another when I am finished. I'm happy because it was hard to motivate myself for the past two days, which rarely happens because exercise is one of the many things I enjoy and I know I'd feel bad for skipping my routine . But I did it, it was a great...

    I am on vacation visiting relatives

    for a week, so I won't have my free weights with me. My room is too small for my regular cardio workout, so I am doing body weight exercises this week so that I don't get sluggish and out of routine.

    Just did 100 squats without stopping

    and a 35 second plank. I usually do 40-50 squats at a time several times a day to make it easier but so far today I did 100 with no breaks!! I can usually hold my planks for 50 - 60 seconds but i'm exhausted. I haven't slept yet and it's 5 am.... but so far it's a good day
