After I exercise I have a lot of energy. My muscles are toned and flexible . Besides that, I had fun doing it and I improve my body , mental and physical health .
There are many ways you can exercise. Even 30 minutes a day of any physical exercise makes the difference. Some people prefer different exercises , this includes walking, aerobic, or even yoga.
I have exercise in different ways through out my life, among them : rowing, running, aerobics, callisthenic, weight lifting. However, I usually try to combine what is best for me and I feel comfortable with when I exercise. I run 3 to 4 times a week and I go to the gym and lift some weights. I like to take advantage of the nice weather so when is warm I like to train outside instead of going to the gym.
It is really important to choose an exercise you best enjoy and are comfortable , instead of forcing yourself to do what you were told to do. The idea of exercising is to enjoy doing what you like and improve self esteem. Is not a torture . That way exercising results will be better for your health.
If your goal is to loose weight or gain weight for example, it is ok to commit to an exercise program until you reach your goal. You will be proud that you did it and your self esteem and confidence will get a boost.
However, once you reach your goal, I would suggest to exercise doing a work out that you really enjoy and to adopt physical exercising as part of your daily life to maintain your goal.
