Today there are lots of fun ways to exercise without stress and strain and without counting repetitions. Read on to find out about the top forms of exercise for people who don’t like to struggle.
If you’re a sociable sort, take up a sport or dancing or join an exercise class where you can be with other people. If you have a family, let your exercise time do double duty as quality family time.

If you don’t know lots of people but would like to, joining a health club is a great place to start.

You’re sure to meet lots of other people who are interested in fitness and fun when you join a gym. You may also be able to find these kinds of classes for a low cost or free at your local community center, church or synagogue.

Instead, hold the lead lightly with your hand so you can let go if your dog happens to see a squirrel or rabbit. While this may be a bit dangerous, it is far less dangerous than having your dog yank the bike out from under you!
Other fun activities you can do on your own include swimming, running, jogging, golf or just walking.
