34 Fun ways to exercise

Exercise doesn’t have to be attending the gym or running a marathon. I mean if that’s your jam then you go girl but if you’re like me and from a scale of lazy to gym junky, you’re catatonic then making exercise FUN means you’re more likely to do it. So here are some fun ways to exercise to get you moving:

  • Go for a walk and listen to an audio book or podcast.
  • See how long you can Hula Hoop for.
  • Walk around while you’re talking on the phone to someone you ENJOY talking to.
  • Do running races with your little one. Letting them win is optional.
  • Try a pole dancing class.
  • Go for a bike ride.
  • Visit a large shopping centre and look at every single store. Maybe go without your credit card.
  • Go for a hike.
  • Dance silly with your little one.
  • Go bowling.
  • Go Rock climbing.
  • Go sightseeing in your own city.
  • Play mini golf (or real golf if you have enough time).
  • Hit driving balls at the local golf club.
  • Shoot some netball or basketball hoops.
  • Pretend you’re in a music video or doing a VMA performance. Singing and dancing is hard work, the more enthusiasm, the better the workout.
  • Play Wiii Fit.
  • Go for a swim.
  • Go to a dance class or barre class.
  • Gardening, call me weird but I find pulling out weeds meditative.
  • Go on a cruise and vow never to take the lifts, only the stairs.
  • Play Pokemon Go.
  • Go Ice skating or Rollerblading.
  • Play Frisbee. Don’t laugh, you can actually join Frisbee teams!
  • Go Salsa dancing.
  • Go Kayaking or stand up paddle boarding.
  • Replicate an 80’s aerobic class… OK I’m running out of ideas.
  • Go to a water aerobics class, you can even attend Physio ones after birth and they have babysitters.
  • Go paint balling.
  • Climb a tree.
  • Go to one of those trampoline jumping places.
  • Play Tennis or just hit a tennis ball against a wall.
  • Watch a music concert that makes you happy (cough.. spice girls live in Istanbul.. cough) and replicate all the dance moves.
  • Have a session. Wink Wink.

So hopefully if you haven’t done your workout challenge this week because you’ve been stuck for ideas, this list will give you some motivation to get moving. I did gardening today and yesterday I spun Will around while dancing to music. Would love to hear what fun exercise you’ve been doing!

Just a reminder if you’re pregnant then learning how to exercise safely is a good idea. Always seek medical advice before exercising post baby.
