Friday Fitness Tip – Find The Best Workout For You

I was walking out of the gym last weekend, and noticed a large group of people running suicide sprints in the basketball court area. Why were they doing this?  I will never know, but I know it was not right for me. It may be super effective, but I would hate every minute of it.

One of the most important things when working out is finding a workout that best fits you and your interests. My husband is someone who has really embraced this in his workout routine. He finds a lot of joy in just shooting the basketball. I’m still not sure how he considers this exercise, but that’s neither here nor there. Anyways, he hits the gym every Tuesday and Thursday morning and starts with a light jog, then does some minor weight lifting, and finishes off the hour with 10-15 min of shooting baskets. While this would not appeal to me in any way, my husband says that the addition of shooting the basketball helps him get up in the morning to get to the gym. It’s something he looks forward to.

This week’s Friday Fitness Tip is “Find The Best Workout For You.”

For me, my interests are more in tune with exercise classes where instructors and classmates are holding me accountable. I encourage everyone to try a variety of workout options to find the best workout for you. To do this focus on the following questions:

  • What do you want to accomplish?
  • Do you enjoy alone time or being held accountable by others?
  • Do you like to be on a schedule or go at your own pace?

  1. I love group fitness but am not currently a member of a gym. 20 minute interval home workouts that hit a different muscle group with a bit of strength training is working great for me right now. I also make sure I walk my step goal with my kiddos now that its nice outside.

  2. I love the thought of knowing what you’d like to accomplish. Very important to keep those goals in mind!

  3. This was so true for me. I spent many many years going back and forth with working out and not working out. Sometimes for months on end I wouldn’t do anything. It really took me finding what worked best for me to fall in love with fitness and get in shape.

  4. That’s a sweet story about your husband 🙂 My husband is so not into sports so he is an entirely different kind of guy. Haha! He is currently fasting because he would rather not eat to lose weight than work out. I’m incredibly impressed by his dedication though! I’m a walking and yoga person. I agree – it’s not worth it to force yourself to do something that makes you want to cry 😉
