I have never tried Zumba but it sounds like fun. I work with a trainer 2 times a week and run on the weekend. I would like to give yoga a try.

I have a good friend who raves about Zumba and I would definitely like to try it sometime. Right now I do the elliptical, an arc trainer, walk, swim and weights. Not all in the same day of course. :thumbup:

Sndy..omg girl..you should try it..it has you sweating like a pig but it's soooo fun.

Maryk..wow you are very active! that is awesome. I've tried the eliptical but it's so hard on my knees..my first marriage we'd dance to this kind of music..my second husband doesn't really know how to dance to it so it feels great to get out and shake my bon bon..although i've got the dvd's it's much more fun to do it with other people! keep up the great work outs!

Performing Aerobic Exercise has indeed helped me ....It burnt lots of calorie and it require more amount of energy which helped me reduce my excessive fat.

I ride a bike. Now that it's cold outside and I'm not that crazy, I set up a trainer inside for my bike. I also do some strength training. I would like to give yoga a try and maybe some Wii games (like Just Dance--my 3 year old likes to "dance").

I wear a pedometer and try to get over 10,000 steps a day. I have been traveling a lot with work lately and try to hit the treadmil at least 30 minutes a day three times a week. I have lost a total of 85 lbs since April 13 2010. I wat to loose 35 more. I try to keep the mindset of, "Keep Moving". The pedometer really helps me stay motivated.

Good Luck to all!

I was able to try Zumba last summer, and it was a blast. Unfortunately, the class schedule and my work schedule don't mesh. I just started doing the "Insanity" video last week, only 2-3 times a week instead of 6. It is kicking my butt big time.

I have been walking and playing racquetball with my husband. It is amazing how much longer I can play with the weight that I have lost thus far. Cannot wait to get to goal... I can really feel a difference now.

I cross train (in a class) 3-4 times a week, use the elliptical and arc trainer 3-4 times a week, and sometimes do a spinning class. When its warm outside, I walk 2-3 miles everyday too. Can't wait for spring - I'm really missing my walks. One of the best parts of my day.

I walk in my neighborhood 30-40min or I go to the gym. I broke down and joined one 5 min from home, women only. I do 30 min on elliptical and cycle, then I do 30 min on the weight machines. I have Wii and so many games, but got bored with them. I sometimes do Walk Away Pounds DVDs too.

Im not doing well in this area.

When I walk, it feels really, really good! I also have a stationary bike and when I ride that I feel like Ive accomplished something.

But I am not a regular exerciser--don't follow my example!!!

One thing I have found helpful is to get massages. Not only do they feel wonderful, but they help me actually feel where my body stops these days. I mention this because I also love feeling my new, smaller body sensations when I walk around the park (at an exercise-walk pace)--which goes back to the original question.

The nurturing from massages is a sweet gift I give myself along the way.

I would like to try Zumbia don't know if I could keep up though? I have a Total Gym in my bedroom and I love, love, love it. It works all your muscles. I would recommend it to anyone. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer and I watch TV while working out. But I need to do some cardio.

Since the start, I've been a dedicated runner. I supplement with a bootcamp twice a week and I go to a spin class every now and then, and I also do a bit of strength training at home. Like instead of a run, I might hoik a sandbag around - squat and lunge with it etc and intersperse that with short runs on the treadmill between sets. I also mix longer, slower runs with sprint/interval sessions. So basically, i stick with running and circuit training but constantly vary the way i do it.

its worked well for me. I am effortlessly maintaining weight loss with no fill in my band, I lost well over 120% of my excess weight, my blood pressure is low, my heart rate is often under 50 and its given me the body I wanted - long and lean with functional strength but only feminine amounts of muscle.

I vary my daily excersise with the stationary bike, elliptical, treadmill. Usually 4 days a week I exercise 30-40 minutes and for the remaining 3 days of the week 60-70 minutes.

Seems to be working for me.
