If running isn't for you, there is nothing wrong with walking. I love going for walks at local parks or around the neighborhood just to get outside and enjoy the nice weather — which is finally starting to make an appearance — and beautiful views of nature. Just going for a short, daily walk works just fine. Walking still counts as staying active and is a lot less harsh on the lungs and body than running can sometimes be. I have to admit that I am a huge gym buff. The gym is practically my home away from home. There are tons of ways to stay active at gyms in the area, from taking fitness classes to lifting weights. I once took a class called "Bootcamp" — yes, it really was as scary as it sounds — and I was sore from head to toe for days, but it was the best workout I have ever had. For people who are new to gyms, I would definitely consult with a trainer to learn all of the ins and outs of the gym, how to use all of the equipment and what workout routine would work best. Going to the gym is a great way to stay active, especially because you are surrounded by other gym-goers with similar goals who will support and help each other whenever possible.
