I’m not sure if I am alone here, but I cannot stand doing cardio. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good uphill walk on the treadmill to warm up, but getting me on one of those things for longer than 10 minutes is not easy. It just makes time go by sooo slow and I’m just counting down the minutes until it is done. But what if I told you.. that there is a great way to do cardio without even realizing that you are doing cardio…
Find an active hobby! You would be surprised the difference finding a consistent hobby can be in not only keeping you in shape but working muscles you didn’t even know you had. For example, I like to think of myself in pretty good shape, but I have never been more sore after playing an hour and a half of pickle ball. The unique movement is something that you just can’t replicate in the gym.
What are some of the active hobbies that will be beneficial? Tons! Anything from walking 18 holes playing golf to doing some of the ballet dancing and everything in between. Some of my favorite hobbies are golfing, pickle ball, basketball and hiking. Another great thing about hobbies are that it is never too late in life to pick some new ones up. I know one of my things that I am trying to do more often is be more open to trying new things and getting out of my comfort zone, and that is especially true when it comes to new hobbies.
Speaking of of that, what are some of your favorite hobbies? Need some recommendations!
