3 Fresh, Fun Ways To Exercise

By: Robert Thomson

Are you looking for fun, different ways to get good exercise? Tired of running on a treadmill? Here are some great, fresh ideas for exercise.

1: Dance

Dancing can be a great form of exercise, especially more energetic dances like swing, salsa, polka, and cha-cha. If you really want a lot of exercise from dancing, take up English country dancing - dances like the Virginia reel, the snowball reel, or any of the other reels and jigs danced during colonial and Victorian time periods. For many of these dances, you won't necessarily need a partner.

2: Hiking

Go hike a mountain! It's great exercise, and you get to enjoy the great outdoors. It's also a very healthy form of exercise, as you get to be out in the forest, breathing fresh, clean mountain air. Hiking also exercises more muscles than just running on a treadmill - you have to run, hike, walk, climb, descend, and use a variety of muscles. Be sure that you take plenty of water with you. When hiking at higher altitudes, you'll need a lot more water than you would at lower altitudes.

3: Whitewater Kayaking

If you want a full body exercise wrapped up with adrenaline pumping thrill, go whitewater kayaking. If you find a tour guide that uses inflatable kayaks, you won't need any experience at all. You can learn as you go. Expect to be sore the next day, though - white water kayaking will work your entire body out as you fight to control, steer, and paddle your kayak through the rapids.
