Fitness Tip of the Day: Let Go & Hang On

Thereas nothing worse than slogging away through something you donat enjoy, simply because you know itas good for you, or because someone told you that you should. In my 20-year training career Iave seen that the best way to turn someone off exercise is to keep driving them to perform activities that they donat like. Iam a strong proponent of finding ways to adapt the activities, or of finding new activities altogether, that will be more enjoyable while still yielding results. In my training career Iave seen a lot of strategies used. Iave also seen a lot of smiling clients, even when theyare dripping with sweat. One of the key principles of a successful, lifetime approach to fitness is to start with an honest evaluation of what kind of person you are, and what you enjoy. If you tailor your fitness plan to suit your personal preferences, youare going to get off to a good start.

Not by a whole lot; Im still unable (without snort-laughing or openly weeping) to visualize myself in a Zumba class, or surfing, or riding a bike without foot brakes and a wicker basket (yes, Ive ridden others, and learned that riding a mountain bike stresses me out only slightly less than riding a road bike) But my plan is to maybe let go a little of my run-and-swim-and-thats-all workouts and substitute a bit more of the body-weight variety (that type mainly because I just cant muster the energy to do machines at the gym or remember to bring my Clorox wipes). Im also determined (in theory at least) to get in another class of yoga in every week. Im tossing, albeit slowly, those fitness ingredients into my salad of running and swimming workouts: Letting go of the sameness of my usual workouts while hanging onto what I enjoy. This seems rather apropos, Im realizing, after driving with my son to Arkansas, where hell start his second year of college on Tuesday. Charlie and I are very close.
