that's why I live only 15 minutes away from my work

I even have time to take a nap before I go online

i joined a gym last year, and i lost some weight, but i would always get discouraged because then after three months the weight would stop coming off. it just wouldn't go any further. so, now a few weeks ago, i get a phone call from one of the reps at the gym i signed up at, and he talked me into going back again. i just dont want my body to stop after a certain time. we'll see what happens in the future.

i have a pretty boring regimen:

i either swim,
often run--about 2-4 miles (i was once an avid cross-country runner)
and sometimes work out at a gym

...i don't care so much for extreme type sports

...i usually work out about 4-5 times a week. if i don't, i tend to feel lazy and/or lethargic.

I get up at 6.30 am in the mornings and do some wake-up yoga.

3 times a week I play badminton during my lunch break.

2 times a week I coach a judo class.

about 3-4 times a week I do some more yoga when I come back from work.

I walk to work (about 10 min.)

omg - now that I got it all listed up its quite a lot.

is there are life after sports ??????????????????????

you don't wanna know what I do. Id suggest getting involved in things that are fun though. If youre having fun doing something, just playing some game with other people, it's so much easier to work out.
you want a good mix of cardio and light weights (for toning and strength). I enjoy going for a run early in the morning or late at night to clear my head; I don't go too hard, but it's just great to be alone with yourself. Swimming is the same, and it's a wonderful sport that almost anyone can do and that is excellent for your body all-round. Both of these though can become tedious, so be careful, make sure you;re having fun at it because otherwise it's impossible to get motivated.

pilates are excellent, so is yoga, both are really hard, strengthening stuff..yoga teaches a lot of mental control too which is why a lot of athletes do it. But this is great for anything else too. Ive done some pilates though on my swim team and if you work at it, it can be great. Good luck!

Oh, I forgot to mention the pilates stuff...I have those Mari Winsor Pilates video things--they're good, pretty challenging. Pilates is fun, but after watching the same video over and over, it gets tedious. I suggest going to a class.

I don't do anything.

I take walks....And Ill sometimes do some sit ups and push ups at home.

I tried Pilates a week ago. It was really good but I can't go back soon because I hurt my arm (not because of the Pilates, btw).

The benefits of pilates is to give you a good posture and it also helps with eliminating stress. It also gives you toned abs and a perky butt.
