Exercise Without Knowing It!

 “Move New” Challenge" 

Exercise can sometimes feel like a chore. Here is a list of activities that give you a workout and are enjoyable-you might forget you are exercising!  Look through this list and find an exercise you have never tried...

New Ways to Exercise without Knowing It!

  • Hiking, especially with friends –  Pack a picnic and just go!
  • Walking –  No time to hike?  Go for a walk.  Even a 15-minute brisk walk is enough time to get close to a mile walked. Do you have a 30-minute meeting at work?  Have a walking meeting instead.  Steve Jobs was known for doing this.
  • LARPING –  Live Action Role Playing.  Might seem silly to those on the outside, but to those playing, it’s an amazing adventure that reminds us how awesome our imaginations are.  Also, depending on the game, you could be wearing a heavy costume, swinging heavy weaponry, and running for your life! Perfect for the Men (although ladies can do it to)
  • Geocaching -  Become a real life treasure-hunter (Lara Croft? Nathan Drake? You decide!), and get a great workout in while you’re at it.
  • Dancing –  Ever tried swing dancing? You’ll be sweating within ten minutes.  Tango? Salsa? Line dancing? Belly dancing? You’d be surprised what you can sign up for and what will elevate your heart rate.
  • Roughhousing with your kids.  Don’t forget what it’s like to be a kid – it keeps you young.  
  • Martial arts - Be honest. You have always wanted to try! Now’s your chance.
  • Clean - Ugh, nobody likes to clean the house/apartment.  So make a game out of it.  See how much you can accomplish with a single song blasting at max volume.  Of course, after getting through one song, you may figure “welp, I’ve already started, might as well keep going.”
  • Do handstands -  This is a fun activity that builds up serious arm and core strength and will leave you sweating bullets after even a few minutes.  Find a park, go do handstands, cartwheels, somersaults, and whatever else makes you feel young again.
  • Parktour -  I don’t care how old you are, there’s no reason you can’t get started with rolling around in your community checking out the great parks and mountains we have.
  • Playout -  Spiderman was on to something – climbing walls, swinging from skyscrapers, and popping flips around the bad guys. You might not be able to swing between buildings, but you can definitely visit a playground in your area and get creative!
  • Adult gymnastics – In the same vein as Parktour, gymnastics will help you build some of the BEST real world strength you can get with any type of exercise, and it’s all done in a playful way without a single weight being picked up.  Swing from rings, somersault, flip onto pads, and more.  There are gyms all over the country.
  • Yoga Build flexibility, strength, and learn to relax.  There are many kinds of yoga, so sign up for a few different kinds and see which one lines up the best with what you’re looking for.
  • Play video games that make you be active - Wii Tennis, Wii Fit, Dance Wii, OK, DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) counts too.  I know an hour of that is exhausting.  Make a rule that you can only play while standing up.  
  • Play on a playground – Go down the slide, swing across the monkey bars, climb the rope all, balance on the balance beam.  Create an obstacle course for yourself and see how quickly you can get through it.  
  • Play a musical instrument - Did you know playing the violin for an hour burns about as many calories as walking around a track at a moderate pace for an hour?  It turns out, our brains can burn boatloads of calories too. So challenge your brain!
  • Join a Rec league - New in town? Want to be active and meet people?  Join a kickball or softball league.  You get to exercise AND it’s a great way to meet new people!
  • Bike to work - I know there are a lot of Rebels in our community who dropped a bunch of weight by making one change: they biked to work, or biked to their friend’s house, or started biking period.  You get from Point A to Point B, you save money on gas, and you get a workout.  
  • Play a childhood game - What games did you play as a child? Capture the flag? Kick the can? Simple tag? Get a few friends together and give it a try – it will be the most fun you’ve had in a while!
  • Restore lost mobility clinic – If you are looking to increase your pain free mobility sign up for this clinic being held at Inspired Life Chiropractic July 11th 12-2pm with Jerry Trubman from The Protocol.  Sing up in office ASAP only a few spots are left!
