Ideas for exercise
Sunday, April 19, 2015
For most of my life I have had memberships at various gyms around the city. I am currently a member of a gym down the street from me. The problem I have with this is that in the beginning I go but then eventually I stop going for months on end and there goes my money down the drain. Sometimes I pick myself up and go again only to stop going again. I figured with the gym down the street from me I would have no excuses but I still managed to find some. I did go back in March once only to get sick the next day with a cold so that did not work out either.
Although I do enjoy the gym classes like zumba and latino dancing I am on a bit of a tight budget and would rather not spend my money on another membership, especially if I stop going down the road. I am looking for other ideas which will either cost nothing or very little. I am open to joining groups.
I do not run, rollerblade, swim well, or cycle so all of those are off limits. I can only walk on city sidewalks for a couple of hours because of my foot problems. We have a mountain in the city where I can go with plenty of inclines and stairs but it can be a bit of a trek to get to in the colder weather. However, there are winter activities there too like skating, skiing, and snowshoeing.
I am looking for ideas that will not cost me much and that I can do with a group. I used to do videos and I have a stationary bike but I cannot do this on my own and I do not have any exercise buddies that could keep me accountable.
I will look for some meetup groups that I can join but sometimes they can be costly too but will keep my eyes open.
I would like to know what you all do for exercise. On the weekends I ski or hike so it is more during the week and in between seasons that I need ideas.
