Four Must Ask Questions When Choosing
A New Fitness Activity

Lisa A. Leonard, CPT

There are many options to help you get in shape and stay that way. Picking one becomes quite a challenge. To try to sort them out, ask yourself these 4 basic questions to determine what kind of activity might be most suitable to meet your fitness goals:

  1. Do you want to participate in a fitness sport or fitness exercise you can do:
    Alone?
    As a couple/partner?
    With a group?

Some solo activities also can be enjoyed with a group of companions, and some group activities also work for solo trainers and couples. Here are some examples:

  • Solo - Aerobics, running/jogging, in-line and ice skating, cycling, swimming, kayaking, Alpine and cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, weight training.
  • Couple/Partner - Tennis, cycling, racquetball, hiking, martial arts, rock-climbing, weight training.
  • Group - Volleyball, baseball, snowshoeing, spinning class, flag football, soccer, ice and roller hockey.
  1. Do you prefer indoor or outdoor exercise?
    Indoors - Dancing, weight training, racquetball, elliptical training, and other gym activities.
    Outdoors - Trail running, skiing, cycling, softball, in-line skating.
    Indoors or Outdoors - Tennis, swimming, rock climbing, ice skating.
  1. How much risk are you comfortable with in sports?
    Low risk - Tennis, dancing, walking, jogging, aerobics.
    High risk - Rock climbing, kayaking, in-line skating, downhill skiing, snowboarding.

  2. How important are convenience and proximity to where you live or work?
    Convenient - Tennis, yoga, handball, dancing, walking, jogging, in-line skating, swimming, bicycling, softball, climbing wall, indoor aerobic training.
    Inconvenient - Rock climbing, skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, trail running, surfing.
