I prefer being outside rather than cooped up in a gym. Depending on the weather, I:

- swim
- jog
- cycle
- take long brisk walks
- sexercise

How do you keep in shape?

Oh, I didn't know you were one of those outdoor sexercising persons. (hehehe)

I also prefer being outdoors, at the moment I'm doing a friends garden and I hope it keeps me in shape.

I'm doing lots of walking at the moment and slowly bringing more running into my exercise routine. I had a stress fracture in my leg a couple of years ago from running and want to avoid getting another one.

Outside is my favourite place to exercise too. Even though it's getting really cold now I still love it. I came back from a long walk yesterday and it took half an hour for my face to defrost.

I prefer being outside as well, which is why I took up running about 4 years ago. If I'm being good, I will run about 5 1/2 miles a day approximately 5 or 6 days a week. I've been a bit of a slacker lately. I will run outside all year long. If it's too snowy or icy out to run (live in Chicago area), then I will jump rope in my garage.

Lately I've been working out a couple days a week with a few daily exercises mixed in. I also have a physically demanding job, so get a decent workout lugging products around for customers or stock at our store. And when work doesn't interfere I play indoor or outdoor soccer once a week depending on the season.

I usually run everyday, but lately have been having some kidney issues and it´s a little too painful. So I am taking super long walks.

I also scuba dive, but since I am only freelancing at the moment, I only get out a few days a week instead of everyday.

I walk every other day, depending on the weather. I'm going to incorporate swimming and get back into playing tennis soon. I gained about eighty pounds over a period of six years (you wouldn't know it by looking at me) and an injury I sustained is making my knees swell up and I want to get the weight down.

Um, depend on soccer! Right now I am doing 6 weeks of once a day soccer training. Monday/Wednesday sprinting Tuesday/Thursday form and more of a mental workout. Friday is a day of recovery! My normal sprints are nothing less than 60yrd shuffles, but that was the easy day! A few days ago I had to do ten reps of 40yr sprints, five 60, five 80, and five 100. Yesterday we went to the gym to do ab workouts with a weight ball (don't remember the name), holding planks-pushup, air squats, hamstring stretches (on your knees, slowly falling to the floor then using your butt and hamstrings to pull yourself back up), and the most popular.. the -amazing- lunges hold 1...2...
40 of everything on that fun little list. :)
Excuse my sarcasm for I really do love the sport.
Just not the fitness level required for it.
Lol, but without this training I wouldn't have the body I do.

I used to play basketball, with killer practices 5 days a week, but since I have quit I feel fat, so I have improvised by taking long walks, and now since last week I have been doing situps and leg exercises cause my thighs are small tree trunks-_- I am trying to slim them down a bit, then I will be happy with myself.

Hmmm for actual real exercise? Cycling and walking when I walk though I tend to go hill climbing same thing with my cycling I love to ride it hard (insert jokes here) :) for me. Though I do count mowing the lawn chopping wood stuff like that as my workout. And I don't mean riding mowers either. I'm also one I hate being stuck inside I won't do go no where exercise like stationary bikes or treadmills those just bore the hell out of me.

sex is very good exercise, so i try to have as much of it as i can! no, i'm serious! ok, besides that, i used to run, but i have occasional issues with my knee, so now i try to bike as much as i can when the weather is nice, or walk, and i practice tai chi - i'm not big on the gym, but my girl goes 3 times a week, and we eat right, which is a huge part of it - we're both vegetarians, non smoker, only drink occasionally... i think that covers it :)

I used to run at lunch but work is too hectic these days and my commute takes 4 hours daily. I bought myself a stationary exercise bike to cycle 5 times a week in the evenings after dinner.I also have a personal trainer on Saturdays to help with my body shape. Occasionally I'll go down to my local pool and swim for an hour. I also walk everywhere which helps.

I used to just get by with dance as my focus, with pilates and a solid cardio regimen as supplements.

I do like the gym... spin classes, the occasional yoga class, and circuit training. Weather permitting, I enjoy running as well but that one depends on my mood.

This summer, tennis and kickboxing are going to be my focus.

I also watch what I eat, limit carbs and fats for the most part, but I'm not crazy about restrictions.

I am really into fitness. I lift weights and body build and I am an avid runner. I do 200 sit-ups and 200 stomach crunches before I get in the shower each morning.

I have competed in triathlons and still do occasionally and regularly run in 5K, 10K and half-marathon races. And I swim a lot.

I have always loved sports and played varsity football and baseball in high school. I still play softball a lot and last year played on an amateur adult tackle football team.

I also love to play golf though I don't think that helps a lot with fitness.

I recently discovered that the secret to having a gym membership is actually going. :) I travel a lot and so keep odd hours at times but most hotels have treadmills, ellipticals, etc. I got a TRX as a gift recently and have found that be a good workout when travelling. The big upside is that I get to still eat food, something I enjoy more than I should (it's my sensual nature coming through).

All that said, I'm going to try Sprite's diet of lots and lots of sex (with or without the ginger) to see if that helps keep the weight down.

Considering I'm allergic to anything that casts a shadow, food and I have a love/hate relationship. I normally spend six hours a week in the dance studio. One Latin class and a private smooth (ballroom) session with my partner and instructor keeps me pretty tone. It's a great workout.

Lol...they didn't tell you that when you signed the membership papers eh? And the secret to actually going is to find a gym that has a lot of hot looking woman in tight workout clothes sweating it up on treadmills...

Actually, I used to go to a gym because there was one at the clubhouse in the condo I was living at...though I haven't lived there since Sept. 2009, and my Trek 400 bicycle is in storage at the moment...
So...I really don't do much in the way of exercise except I walk a lot...

Btw...when did Lush get a Health and Fitness section in the forum? I really don't remember this one...

I think this is great Nicola...maybe you could start The Lush Fitness Center...




With demonstrations on the proper use of exercise equipment...




And I'm sure in no time the results will show...

Swimming is brilliant if parts of your body are weaker as the water bears all the weight icon_smile

I mainly cycle and lots of walking, and I also like an odd game of tennis/badminton!

We have a pool and live in the South so I can swim almost all year long. And the reason I'm more interested in it than ever, I knew a woman once awhile back that had a mastectomy. He doctors were amazed at the fast recovery time and asked her what she did in day to day life that would benefit her that way. She swam every day for most of her adult life. She ended up being written up in the New England Journal of Medicine. Interesting I thought. Up until that time my idea of the water was being on a boat drinking Mai Tai's and watching the sunset. Or even on a beach. evil4
