Most people head to the gym or go for a run when they feel they need to lose some weight or to tone up for a special event like a wedding or after baby. But you hate running and going to the gym so you find yourself with a membership a few months down the road without much change in your weight. What next?
I love London for a lot of reasons. One of them is that there are endless opportunities to find fitness that you will -gasp- love! From ballroom dancing to hula hooping to joining a frisbee club, it's all waiting for you.
If you're in an area of the world where there isn't as many opportunities, create them! With social media outlets like MeetUp, you can create an event and like-minded people will show up to get fit.
There's no real prescription for fitness. It's important to be as active as you can as often as you can and not make yourself or those around you crazy by doing it. By starting out slow and doing activities that you love, you soon be looking for excuses to "work out"!
Fitness is not one-size-fits-all. Find what you love and do it for fun. You'll lose the weight and have a great time...
