    What do you do for exercise?

    As writers, we do a lot of sitting. But exercise is very important. Just wondering what my sedentary colleagues are doing about it.

    I do a lot of belly dancing. It's fun and it keeps me in shape smile

      I've heard this is great exercise, but I couldn't imagine me doing it. Thanks for your input.

    At the present time, I only go walk. I am attempting to progress from a walk to a run, but it has been very slow going.

      Walking is great in itself.

    Figure skating, I use ellipticals, trampolines, and treadmills. I refuse to sit still for a full hour and make a point to get up and walk on my treadmill or use my elliptical if I can't make it to the rink. My $30 trampoline also gets a workout if I'm bored with the machines.

      I work from home and am taking college courses & know sitting down can drag you down. Several times daily I stand up at the bartop in the kitchen while working so my rear doesn't go numb or take on a square shape smile

    I'm a triathlete, so run, bike, and swim quite a bit.  I don't think most people need to do all of that though smile  Even 20 minutes of weights and some walking a few times a week is great for staying in shape - plus no need to feel bad about sitting and writing the rest of the day!

    If you're wanting to get into running/endurance sports, the Couch to 5k program from coolrunnings is a great way to get started and helps someone go from very little activity ("the couch") to running a 5k in 8-10 weeks.

    I run 5 days per week. It's fun and my dog and I stay in shape. I need to start incorporating weight lifting as well.

    I walk each day which can be considered as exercise.  Also, I swim alot in the sea although I don't do it for the sake of exercise.  I hear that swimming is a good exerice.

    I walk and garden as much as I can w/ limitations. I find that Pilates and pool aerobics help keep me flexible while strenghtening my core. This takes the burden off of my weak hip joint which is still growing into my new prosthesis.

    I like to use the Power Tower (an excellent stand for pull-ups, dips, push-ups, and leg lifts).

    I ride my bike to school and work every day. I've also been doing some pushups and situps to work on upper body strength. I take my dogs on walks, too.

    I am a runner, and I also ride my recumbent bike. Hiking and walking are activities I like to do with my husband in the summer and fall, and these things are very enjoyable to me.

    Oh and I also work out with my stability ball and kettlebells. I am training for a 5k

    I love spin classes, so much so that I became a certified spin instructor 3 years ago and now teach the classes. I also do a bit of running, weights and have recently fallen in love with yoga. It's important to make exercise a part of your lifestyle and find something that you enjoy.
