I do love Pickleball!  The game is fast and fun and the women I play with are very fun!!  Dance parties used to be fun when my kids were younger....my music used to their favorite, but now they've grown. (LOL, no more 80's/90's tunes for them!). I also enjoy ping pong!!  I probably have fun with all my activities except for golf!!!

Dance parties and walks with friends are the best! We get to catch up and workout at the same time. Win win!

My passion is Pilates! Love teaching on zoom! And in person! Walking and using the rowing machine at the gym is my go to cardio!

I love time in nature: hike or walk.  Jog or run.  Skip, hop or yoga.  Movement + nature = JOY

Some of my favorites are bike rides with friends and family, hiking, group gym workouts and going for walks.

I love yoga. It is not as stressful on the body and I love the sense of community you get from attending a group class consistently. If I can find a class that is in (or overlooks) nature, it is perfect.

I love playing Cornhole with my family and friends when the weather starts warming up! In my town we have Cornhole leagues and it’s so fun to get outdoors and have some competitive fun with each other. Plus, the game can be as skilled and strategic as you want it to be - so easy to play with young children to super competitive adults!

I like taking over my son’s XBox to play Just Dance as my cardio, end-of-day stress reliever. 
After moving into a new house and trying to overhaul the yard, gardening is another enjoyable physical activity that builds muscles, too!

I love long beach walks with my friends and lots of dogs! #5DAYSOFPLAY

During the pandemic since travel abroad seems fraught with all kinds of unpredictable misadventures, I've loved planning active vacations around National Parks where we hike each day and just enjoy nature and a change of scenery! Otherwise I've stayed active inside and out at the gym and biking/hiking daily.

I have been a lifelong runner, but ever since developing plantar fasciitis months ago, I have been figuring out new ways to get my cardio in. I used to rollerblade back in college, so I recently tried that out again! My partner got me a new pair of adorable pink, white, and green rollerblades for Mother’s Day, and I don’t think I have taken them off since I received them! Rollerblading can be sooo much fun, especially if you have any paved surfaces or trails near you!!! #impalainlineskates

Though I haven't been playing much lately, getting out for a round of golf brings me the most joy, especially when I get to play with my mom. We both love the game and have a great time, no matter what our scores say 🙂

I love playing tennis! Such a fun sport to play with friends. Pickleball is awesome for couples….fun date night. I enjoy outdoor walks with friends or family. My go to is strength classes at the gym. Mixing it up between TRX, bands, weights and spin classes.

Yoga and dancing are my most fun activities! They move the body while relaxing the mind and boosting endorphins. 🧘🏼‍♀️ 💕💃🏼 💕

I love hiking and going on walks! Being in nature is my favorite and I need fresh air to feel more alive! My dog, Vinny, loves to go with and motivates me to get movement in!

I especially enjoy hikes and playing tennis, since they enable me to be outside and spending time with people I enjoy.

I've always loved walking my dog but now that she's 12, our 3-4 rapid walks per day have turned into short leisurely sessions. I definitely need to find something cardio to maintain my own health.

After a long week, I enjoy going on beach hikes. The ocean is so calming and being able to watch a sunset to cap off my week is *chef's kiss*

I love my peloton and riding with friends.  Sounds crazy but that brings me a lot of joy! I also enjoy walks in the neighborhood with my kids.  When we can make it out to the beach we enjoy playing kadima, which is a paddle board game.  I make it a point to do some for of activity every day and always encourage my family to join in.  Self care is so important and I like that my kids see me make time for myself.

Hiking and trail running are my top two, but now that its warmer, I cannot wait to get out and kayak! It's so fun I don't even see it as a workout. Any time we can get outside is a win!

Thank you 🙌🏼 thank you 🙌🏼 thank you 🙌🏼 for making this movement about joy and not weight loss or aesthetic changes in our bodies. Athleta you rock! So excited!

My favorite activities are teaching group fitness classes. I work out with my team and they are so much fun. We all have goals of being stronger, gaining cardiovascular fitness, flexibility and most of all the music we work out to and all of the above make it an amazing experience!

My favorite activities currently include weekly runs with my daughter.  Even though we may not be running at a fast pace, it is awesome to see her improving each week and her excitement for her success.  We will be completing our first mud run together this summer!

I recently got a gym membership! And have also enjoyed salsa dancing once a week. I try to hike about once or twice a week as well.

I love anything outdoors this time of year--walking, biking, hiking, swimming, even mowing the yard or gardening.  I absolutely love a pickup game of casual, fun beach volleyball.   It's invigorating and so much fun with friends and family.   No pressure--just enjoying being active with those closest to my heart!

I really enjoy going out dancing with friends just vibing to great music and getting a good sweat dance session in.

Love, Love the videos and I may not do all of these moves, but I move. I'm 66yrs of age, with many health issues that all stems from going through cancer twice, but none of it stops me from doing as I please, nor moving as I please. Yes, I have pain at times, but I don't care, I still move my body anyway I can. I think due to me having so many health issues, that's what got me to con't moving as much as I can. Lets just say, I'm angry with the issues,  so I'm fighting back.
