Exercise Doesn’t Have to be a Workout
For many people, the idea of walking into a gym filled with 20 somethings in little workout clothes hopping and grinding their way to a better bikini body can be intimidating enough to walk into the revolving doors and staying there until the door exits you back into the street. Same situation applies for the guys…grunting and pressing enormous weights with bodies that look like the Incredible Hulk can be very intimidating to the fellow who hasn’t worked out in years. Don’t despair! Some of the best forms of exercise really don’t have to be performed in a gym and the benefits of these activities can be fun, not expensive and reap many rewards. They can help you to keep your weight within normal range, strengthen your bones, improve your balance, motor and cognitive skills, protect you from cardiovascular disease, improve your blood pressure, decrease inflammation, improve joint pain, lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and help prevent urinary leakage and pelvic floor conditions.
