Getting in Shape Without Visiting a Gym

Men have many options for getting into shape, but not everyone wants to spend their time in a stuffy gym lifting weights or sweating it out on a treadmill. The best, most effective exercise regimen is the one that people enjoy enough to continue. In most cases this will mean forgoing any exercise plan and finding a fun physical activity instead. There are an almost endless amount of ways to make this happen. Most doctors agree that it takes only 15-20 minutes of exercise each day to provide physical benefit. Even the busiest lifestyles still offer the opportunity to fit in this amount of activity.

  • Walk or bike once a week to work rather than using motorized transportation.
  • Always use the stairs instead of the elevator or an escalator.
  • Park in the spot furthest away from work or any shops.
  • Find more projects to do around home rather than sedentary activities like reading and watching TV.
  • Join a sports club. The thrill of competition makes it easy to ignore that its exercise.

Another great option is for people to rediscover an activity that they enjoyed when they were young. Bicycling and skateboarding are great options because they have been popular with multiple generations and are familiar to nearly everyone. Most people had some experience with both and will find that it is easy to remember the basic techniques of each. Adults will discover also that the advancements in gear technology not only makes the effort easier, but adds to the enjoyment level of the sport.

Having more social opportunities is an additional benefit of using activities to get in shape rather than just exercising. People are less likely to socialize at a gym when their attention is focused on their performance. The opportunity to meet new people expands when they play sports, take up a hobby like biking or skateboarding or even just spend more time out on foot. Good social interaction makes it even easier to stay motivated about being active and healthy.
