Exercise Routines: Choosing a Workout Plan You’ll Enjoy 
by Tamiya King August 10, 2005

Try non-traditional exercises.

It’s perfectly all right to base your exercise routine on things you actually like to do. For instance, if you love dancing, enroll in a local ballroom dancing or salsa class, and count the classes as part of your workout. If you love swimming, visit the pool as often as you can. If you’re a fan of the outdoors, plan to go bike riding or hiking whenever you get a chance. Even though these aren’t your traditional ways of exercising, you’ll still receive the cardiovascular and muscle-toning benefits. The trick is to make sure that you’re participating in these activities as often as you would be going to the gym in order to have really worked out for the week. You may still want to add a couple of weight training sessions or a mile run one day a week to these activities, but you’ll be much more motivated to do so when you can spend other days doing the things you like to do. This way, you won’t have to make another New Year’s resolution to work out every day; you can just resolve to plan your days better and do more of the things you love to do.
