Q. Glen, I really do not like to exercise.How can I make it better?
A. There is something instilled in people who have found the secret to exercise... something that keeps them coming back for more. It has nothing to do with weights, cardio or stretching. You won't find it hidden under a bench press, climbing the Stairmaster or running on a track. The only place you will find it is inside yourself. It's called fun.
For many people exercise is a dreaded word. The only way they will ever break free from this notion is to change its meaning. The word exercise has been beefed up and disguised under sweatbands and health recommendations. But if you look closely, you will see exercise is nothing but a fancy word for playtime
Some people enjoy lifting weights. They like the feeling of letting go of their stresses by pumping their energy into lifting. While this is a great way to release the mind and let it escape for a while from everyday problems, it's not the only way. There are no limits to what you can do to get active. As long as you are having fun and moving, then you are accomplishing the true meaning of exercise.
Here are a few suggestions to help ignite your exercise fire so you can burn away all those previous misconceptions. The earth is your playground -- go have fun!
