What Workout Routine Is Right For You?

I’m sure you have pondered that question plenty of times.  What workout is best for ME?  There are so many to choose from.  Running, walking, jogging, biking, spinning, Beach Body , P90X, yoga, Jazzercise, dance classes, there is even pole dancing classes, Cross Fit, Zumba, Les Mills, there are group classes and there is personal training.  Oh the list goes on and on.  In fact, there are so many it could make your head spin!

So, What Workout Routine Is Right For You?

Well, the answer to that is simple.  It’s the Workout Routine that you DO.

All workout routines start with putting your mind to it, making a promise to yourself to do it, and by putting one foot in front of the other.  That first step to the DVD player, to your car, to the sidewalk out front, to your bike, etc. is the most important step.

Of course, I am not a doctor and can’t tell you that you are capable of doing every single type of exercise out there, but in my personal opinion, you can sure try them once!

All types of exercise are designed to encourage you to continue on with the routine.  Your job is to find one (or a few) that you like.

What Workout Routines are right for ME?

I enjoy mixing it up.  I like to run, bike, go to Jazzercise and swim every now and then.

What Workout Routine is right for you?

I run because I can.  I have always been a runner and it seems as though it is something that my body just enjoys.  I can not run for 2 weeks, then lace up my shoes and take a 5 mile run.  Running is amazing cardio.

Biking is a way for me to really focus on my legs.  I love riding my bike up to the grocery store when I just need a few things.  I put on my backpack and I am ready to roll.  If I need to get my workout in and I need to hit the store…why not get them both in at the same time?

Jazzercise is my full body workout.  It is my weights, it is my cardio, it is a FUN way for me to lose about 600 calories in 55 minutes.  I love that Jazzercise instructors always give you a high-intensity and low-intensity option at class, they call out the steps (that way I don’t mess up as much 😉 ), and I love the music.  The music is now, it is upbeat, and it keeps me motivated the whole class.  I honestly believe that Jazzercise makes me a better runner.  I honestly believe that Jazzercise makes me a better ME.

Swimming.  Swimming is an amazing full body workout and since we live in Florida where it’s HOT a LOT of the year, I do try to get in the pool and do some laps.  I can swim, sure, but laps are not always my strongest routine.  But I try 🙂

Is running, biking, swimming or Jazzercise for you?  Well, that’s up to you!  What is for YOU is up to YOU.  But the important part is taking that step.  No matter what direction you decide to head in, I encourage you to take that step.  That step to start walking, to try a class, to dust off your bike, to open that DVD that has been in your cabinet for months now, that step to a happier YOU.

  1. I find doing an aerobic routine first thing in the morning before breakfast is he easiest for me to stick to. It is harder for me to fit it in as the day goes on.

    • That’s great that you have found what is right for you! And I totally agree – I gotta do mine first thing in the a.m.!

  2. I like to do yoga and have to get into a routine again. I had to have foot surgery and it set me back big!! Great ideas to do what works for each one of us and keeps us interested!!

  3. Me too. I mix my workout routine up. But honestly i have a favorite and it is the elliptical because i can go as fast or slow with high or low resistance.

  4. Lots of good information on finding the right workout for me. I have a gym membership but find it hard to go, for various reasons. Motivation is key.

  5. I hate exercising…I”ve tried biking, jazzercise, aerobics, stepaerobics, walking, etc.I tolerate the elliptical while watching tv and I walk outside with my hubby and dog when the weather is good. Still looking…

  6. I also enjoy changing up my workout routine since it keeps things fun and exciting. I really love Zumba so I bet I would find Jazzercise to be a lot of fun too!

  7. I love this post. There is something that everyone could do. Maybe running is your thing, maybe yoga, maybe you have major physical and mobility issues (like I do) and you are limited, but swimming, or stationary biking, or even just sitting in your wheelchair and tapping your toes. Anything, just move, more and more each day. Thanks for reminding people that there are so many different options.

  8. I’ve been doing a lot of walking. It is dangerous to bike where I am, and no easy place to go swimming. Walking has been really great!

  9. I used to swim 50 lengths of a 25 metre pool every day after work, then I dislocated my knee. I’m still in the rehab stage so it’ll be months before I;m allowed to swim at all. I do plan to do some gentle aquarobics and even just walking against the water will help me build up my strength again.

  10. I have tried so many work outs and I always get bored so fast, I was actually doing pretty good with my stepper until I had an azsma attach, I’ll have to start over slowly and find something else to do besides the stepper.
