Not all exercise is created equal. Some forms are good for heart health, some good for burning fat, some good for building muscle, some for building incredible cardio fitness levels… you could really go on and on. It is important to choose the right exercise in order to reap the health benefits.
So what is the best form exercise? The one you LOVE doing, of course! The one that you don’t have to drag yourself out of bed, or off the couch, to complete! If you don’t love it, you won’t do it. And you’re only going to get the benefits if you do it. Here are some examples of the BEST exercise for me, and why:
- Mountain biking, because it gives me thrills! It gets me into the fresh air and sunshine, and lets me get lost in my thoughts.
- Booty Barre… it is like a fitness class based on ballet, but groovier and cheekier! Because it’s super fun, and it’s a thing I do with my good friend Tanyka. Social + fun + epic workout = win!
- Yoga – because it grounds me while still getting the blood flowing. I always walk out of a yoga class with a clear head.
- Boxing – to release pent up energy and challenge myself!! To get out of my comfort zone.
Everyone is different. Don’t let anyone tell you what you should be doing. Just do what you love!
