I'm not a fan of setting aside specific moments to go to a gym and use workout equipment. I tried it out for a few weeks, and I just couldn't enjoy being in a sweaty, crowded public place for that long...

I prefer walking places, and bikeriding [alone, more often than not]. Housecleaning is surprisingly a decent workout as well, at the right pace.

And of course, the walkman is a must. :yes:


[INFJ] Posted that ^ 10yrs ago. It still applies as far as gyms go. Gyms are gross. However with chronic hip problems in recent yrs I’ve become quite attached to my stationary bike at home. That, & listening to fast music or watching a suspenseful/scary show is quite fun. I also do stuff with dumbbells afterward for upper body, and floor mat exercises I picked up in physical therapy for core strengthening. Can’t listen to music with those. Music messes up my rep counts.

Swimming is great, too, but I don’t have access often to swimming areas.

I still like walking, but not for exercise on its own. I have physical limitations at the moment, so I can’t go too far without getting sore. Running is completely out.

Bike is still the best for me. I’m a creature of habit. :shrug:

Used to like self-defence training a lot before I started having joint problems.

I guess nowadays it would be dancing.

I need more of that, but I like exercises machines, especially exercise bikes and weight machines. If I'm a gym I'm more encouraged to exercise cause I want to try out all the different machines, and I like to challenge myself with how much I can lift. I also enjoy dancing around the house with my headphones blasting as well as taking nature walks, tennis, and gardening.

Pretty much solely walking, which I'm not really proud of lol.

I uh, walk... And that's it. I can't say I have a favourite exercise, since they all bore me. At least I can think while I walk.

I sort of just put earbuds in my ears and go outside, and it varies between walking, jogging, skipping, jumping, etc. for 1 to 2 hours nearly daily. XD

That's actually usually what exercise consists of for me, more or less, although I haven't done much of that recently. It's not even that I don't like the cold, it's just that my mood has meant I haven't had the energy. I've been thinking lately I should pick up some indoor exercise as a habit for those situations.

I dance to Rock 'n' Roll for hours at a time. First I become hot and sweaty, and I keep going, and I reach a second wind and feel I can dance forever, and I keep going, and then I reach dancer's or runner's high, where my brain is flooded with endorphins, a natural narcotic.

Lifting weights and cardio. I follow an app or video because the structure helps me.

I picked up jump rope as it is easy to do every morning for around 5-15 minutes a day. It does help in putting exercise in the schedule of a procrastinator. :p
