    I'm thinking more like a tarp. Is one allowed into the pool wearing a tarp?

    Pilates! I hadn't considered it because I thought it was too much like aerobics for my joints to endure. But now I'll have to give it a look-see! Thanks for the suggestion, chica.
    Oh, tai chi is a very low impact and great workout. A lot of energy is expended when it is done right. Swimming, walking and pilates are all excellent low impact workouts.

    I practice martial arts, some kickboxing and lots of stretches to keep my flexibility. I try to do it every day for about an hour and a half, but usually manage it only three-four times a week. I walk about half an hour every day, and when the weather's good I swim a lot.

    During vacations, I like to go trekking, climbing, and indulge in some adventure sports. It makes my fitness programme throughout the year totally worth it.

    And yeah, I get depressed if I have to without exercise for more than two days at a stretch. Makes me feel sad, slow and sluggish. I think I'm addicted to that endorphin rush...

    I walk to school, in school (classes), and from school to home three times, the first trip to school, lunch (home) and the trip home from school.

    My school is 18 meters away from my house.

    Hey this thread resurrected. I'll update it:

    -hour or two of volleyball once a week, and often for half a day on the weekend (not really physical, but so fun!)
    -pilates for 1/2 hour once or twice a week at work
    -long nocturnal walks occasionally, when I need to get out
    -and I walk or bike pretty much anywhere I go in the city

    And I am probably going to start martial arts in the fall if I can justify the price to myself. And maybe yoga or pilates too, to replace the pilates at my work. Maybe rockclimbing too. Or tennis or squash. I'm back in school in the fall, so I won't be biking much and I want to be more active, I'm always so much happier when I'm doing stuff.
    now: kung fu, volleyball, squash each once a week. Sadly that's it until may, since my other 2 volleyball teams + soccer are over for the semester.

    may-aug: soccer, squash and kung fu each once a week. aikido and volleyball each twice a week. beach volleyball hopefully most sundays, weather allowing. and biking to work a whole 15 minutes each way, if that counts.

    Looking forward to it.

    The Firm exercise DVDs (from the infomercial) which is a mix of weights, floor cardio and step-aerobics and going to the gym for a cardio-toning class 3 times per week. Sometimes I also do a little Pilates or Yoga.

    I'm really like step-aerobics, that would be my favorite. I'm not into group sports or anything competitive.

    since the beginning of winter, 3 days a week i do 3 sets of pushups, bicep curls, and situps. I've always been skinny, and will always be slim, but it is amazing what this has done for me. Otherwise, I ride a bike everywhere, and dance a lot. My job requires working with heavy boxes and cables.

    oh, and sex is great exercise.

    even days of the month: 30 minutes@8mph, upper body calistenics
    odd days of the month: 60 minutes@8mph

    1 day off per week. i reached my verticle distance climb rate benchmark, so i am transitioning from that and snowboarding to rock climbing for the summer

    Calisthenics make much more sense to me; using the body's strength alone to add muscle. It also makes more sense in terms of it being progressive and balanced. (athletic) Martial artists and gymnasts are the fittest people in the world, and I have a similar build now.

    My picture above was taken during a period of freeweight and flexibility training. It's no longer an ideal.
