Transcript

So if you're one of those people who hasn't found the perfect physical activity yet, here are some things to think about which might help you make the right decision for you. The first question to ask yourself is whether you would enjoy training in a gym many people are put off by the idea of having to fit a visit to the gym into their busy day. [11] You often have to go very early or late as some gyms can get very crowded but with regular training you'll see a big difference in a relatively short space of time.

Running has become incredibly popular in recent years. That's probably got a lot to do with the fact that [12] it's a very accessible form of exercise anyone can run even if you can only run a few meters to begin with but make sure you get the right shoes it's worth investing in a high quality pair and they don't come cheap another great thing about running is that you can do it at any time of day or night the only thing that may stop you is snow and ice.

Swimming is another really good way to build Fitness what attracts many people is that [13] you can swim in an indoor pool at any time of year on the other hand it can be quite boring or solitary it's hard to chat to people while you're swimming lengths.

[14] Cycling has become almost as popular as running in recent years that's probably because as well as improving their fitness many people say being out in the fresh air in a park or in the countryside can be fun provided the conditions are right of course only fanatics go out in the wind and rain.

[15] Yoga is a good choice for those of you looking for exercise which focuses on developing both a healthy mind and body it's a good way of building strength and with the right instructor there's less chance of hurting yourself than with other more active sports but don't expect to find it easy; it can be surprisingly challenging especially for people who aren't very flexible

[16] Getting a personal trainer is a good way to start your fitness program. Obviously, there can be significant costs involved but if you've got someone there to encourage you and help you achieve your goals you're less likely to give up make sure you get someone with a recognised qualification though or you could do yourself permanent damage.
