Friday Five: Favorite Fitness Activities

Linking up with Eat Pray Run DC for today’s post – my favorite fitness activities!

Friday Five - Favorite Fitness Activities

This was kind of difficult for me – I have a lot of stuff I like to do and narrowing it down was tough. #FitGirlProblems But here we go:

1. Hiking.ย  But I haven’t gone hiking in ages – it’s been pretty hot here the last few months and I just can’t take the heat. It’s cooled down the last couple of weeks so I’m about to get back out there!

2. Running. I love running in races! They’re so exciting. I like running on the treadmill, too, because it’s a good opportunity to catch up on my soaps.

3. Just walking. According to my Fitbit, I walk around 5 miles a day even when I’m not really going anywhere in particular. I guess I just wander around a lot.

4. Body Beast. I had no idea I’d love weightlifting so much. I particularly love that I’m supposed to eat a lot with this program.

5. Insanity Pure Cardio (I talked about it here). There was a discussion in my Beachbody coaches’ Facebook group about Pure Cardio this week – it seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it workout. I am firmly in the love-it camp, but then I’ve never blacked out during this workout!

  1. Ooh I’ve never tried any of the Beachbody programs but would love to. Super interested in T25!!

    • says:

      I really enjoyed the few T25 workouts I’ve done so far – they’re very efficient and perfect for a busy morning. Let me know if you want more info.

  2. I really want to try insanity. I am just loving that it is starting to warm up a bit so we can go hiking and running outside.

  3. I cannot stand running on the treadmill, but I love hiking. I actually enjoy the old school The Firm workouts, so I’m thinking of trying something similar. Hiking is the best!

    • says:

      The Firm workouts are classic! I even use the Fanny Lifter in my Body Beast workouts ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I like walking, too. Lately I don’t get enough exercise so I try walk fast and rhythmically(?) when I do.
    But still, Bikram yoga is my favorite activity for fitness. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • says:

      Oh Bikram. I’ve been to 3 classes with my month-long pass and that might be enough for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Hi there! Visiting from the Friday 5 a little late! I love running but also enjoy group activities as well!

  6. Oooh, I have yet to try out any of these video workouts everyone’s so into. I hear T25 and Insanity are really good. As far as other workout activities, I do love Body Pump, and obvs. running. ๐Ÿ™‚

I'd love to hear from you
