What’s Your Fitness Style?

Do you find it hard to stick to regular exercise? You might benefit from simply finding out what your fitness style is. Finding out what suits you and finding some form of activity that you enjoy could be the key to maintaining a regular exercise program and finally achieving your weight loss goals.

Here are a few suggestions and I recommend trying them all at least once, you never know what you might enjoy or who you could meet!

  • Team Sports
  • Group fitness classes at a local gym
  • Personal training
  • Outdoor style fitness classes, e.g Boot Camp
  • Dance classes or lessons
  • Joining a Cross Country or Road Runners clubs and participating in weekly fun runs
  • Yoga or Pilates
  • Exercising with a partner
  • Self Defence  / Boxing classes
  • Indoor sports centre
  • Mountain Biking Clubs
  • Road Cycling Clubs
  • Body Building
  • Nippers
  • Surfing
  • Skateboarding
  • Home Gym or Cardio equipment e.g Treadmill, exercise bike or weights
  • Walking or cycling to work
  • Swimming
  • Roller Derby
  • Bushwalking on the weekends
  • Gardening

One thing amongst all this is for certain: Exercising with a partner, whether it be a friend, a husband/wife, personal trainer, team or club, influences and motivates us more than exercising alone.

The trick is: Don’t do something you absolutely hate, because more than likely you wont end up exercising at all.

Can you think of any other forms of activity that you could do a couple of times per week?

In good health,



  1. How about doing an exercise DVD at home? You get all the benefits of a personal trainer without the cost! That’s a great option for people who are new to working out and not comfortable yet in a gym or ready for the cost commitment 🙂

  2. Hi Alison. I have found that following a set-out program gives me discipline and also blogging every day on what exercise I’ve done. I also like doing a job, like being able to walk to the post-office or walk to the supermarket. There is a sense of getting something useful done at the same time as getting fit.

    • Hi there thanks for your comment! I agree, incidental exercise e.g walking to the shops instead of driving, walking the kids to school etc is the perfect way to get used to exercise and get in that little bit extra every day!
