I’ve long-held the belief that just because your friend/spouse/parent loves to run/swim/play basketball/go hiking/lift weights, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s your thing.
I’ve also long-held the belief that there is some form of exercise for everyone.
And here’s the beautiful part: your figuring out what you love to do and how your body wants to move is a wonderful journey.
Some people know instinctively that they love to play team sports. Others might try a pick-up game of soccer and find out that they really enjoy the quiet of the golf course. You may also try spinning for a year or a two, and then decide that a pilates class will challenge you in a new and different way. There is no one path.
The only rule is that you do something that feels good and makes you feel confident in your body. If you get to the point that you feel ‘off’ when you miss a workout, you’re on the right track!
When you find your fitness groove, it’s like magic. For some people, it creates a lifetime habit of movement, flexibility, balance, and grace. And sometimes it comes together most unexpectedly.
Here’s to finding your fitness groove in 2016. May it be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Good health and great happiness to you!
