Fun ways to keep FIT!

climbing 2009


Happy Friday Everyone!!!!! I hope you’ve enjoyed this week! I can’t believe we are already half way through January. I feel like I have so many goals and things I hope to achieve and I wish time could roll along a little more slowly.

One of my good friends is trying/ wanting to get fit and lose about 25kg for an upcoming event. She has about 3 months, which is not really a long time for that amount of weight. In fact, I think that it would be too fast. However, there is a lot of changes and positive things she can do in 3 months.

When I talk to her about what is holding her back:

“I hate exercise, the gym, walking, let alone running, they remind of PE and seem like a lot of work. I already work a zillion hours, the last thing I feel like doing when I come home is working more.”

I get that not everyone likes the gym. Although I swear, if you give it time and find your niche in the gym, the right gym etc you will learn to love it. BUT I’m biased!

However, there are so many ways to get moving that don’t involve a gym! You guys are all so inspiring to me, so I thought I’d do a little round up of some of the fun ways you keep fit. And the obstacles you overcome and don’t make excuses for!

This lady trains for marathons with a family to take care of and always fits it in! This girl has two jobs and a ridiculously busy life and STILL runs over 50 miles a week.

This lady is a lover of dance classes and, still one of my favourite posts of hers, was this one about taking a burlesque dance class.

This gal does all kinds of things but has even been known to do some trapeze.

This lady has tried just about every type of exercise known to man and continues to enjoy and inspire us with her hilarious recounts.

This lady loves to surf so much it is in the title of her blog. (May have been the sole reason I started reading her blog). She has two little ones runs, does yoga and everything in between.

And there are so many more of you that inspire me and I love to read about! I love how different and vibrant everyone is! So much passion. There is a wonderful place in this world for everyone to do their great work. And to my buddy who doesn’t like the gym, if you can’t find inspiration from any of these ladies… I don’t know where you can! Please feel free to add links to your favourite blogs or your favourite ways to workout!

Happy Friday!
