50+ Exercises to Get Up and Move

50+ Exercises to Get Up and Move

50+ Exercises.png

It doesn't matter what gets you off the couch; you just need to get up and move. Yes, there are different exercises that help you burn more calories, build more muscle, or have better lung capacity, but that doesn't matter if you can't stick with it. Find something you enjoy so you will actually stick with it. You may not love it at first, but you can at least find something you don’t hate.

Listed below are more than 50 different ways you can get up and move. I put them in categories to hopefully make it easier for you to decide and some of them fall under multiple categories.

Don’t be afraid to try something new! Give it a real try and come into it with a positive attitude. If you start with a negative attitude, of course, you're not going to like it!.
