Greetings from muggy Chicago!  I’m here in my hometown spending some time with family and seeing a few clients, but mostly just sweating, despite the fact that everyone here keeps telling me it’s “so much better than it was!”  My sister and her boyfriend are fitness nuts and just went for a bike ride and it got me to thinking about exercise.  Clients ask me all the time, what exercise do you do?  What’s the best exercise?

I think the best exercise is the exercise you enjoy doing.  Period.  Sure, swimming is low-impact, but I’m a sneezy mess for days after I spend time in the pool and chlorine dries my skin out.  I love weight training and it builds bone density, but a lot of people find it boring (not to mention the stench that fills most weight rooms).  There’s a pro and a con to every form of exercise out there.  But if you exercise, your body is better for it.  And if you enjoy the exercise you’re doing, you’re more likely to do it again.  So I say, do what you love and skip the stuff you dread.  If you like to run, then run.  If dancing is your thing, dance the night away.  Pump iron, play tennis, bike to work; whatever gets your blood pumping and your limbs moving.

If you’re trying to achieve a specific goal, such as bulking up, slimming down, or preventing osteoporosis, there are exercises that may suit your needs better than others.  And if you have questions about that stuff, feel free to ask, as I’d be happy to help find something that works for you.  But what I’m really good at is helping you do the things you love, only better.  I want you to exercise pain free (except for that good feel-the-burn pain).  I want you to exercise without injuring yourself and without imbalances that may lead to injury down the road.  And I want you to be the fastest, strongest, bendiest you can be.  So go out there and sweat and call me when you want to take your workout to the next level.
