Salvere Blog: Purposeful Exercise

by Salvere Health and Fitness

Exercise, Fitness, Movement, Physical Activity, Working Out

We use various words to describe exercise and I even debated on what to title this blog as they all “feel” a little different when we say them. We live in a time where the options for getting our bodies moving allow opportunities for exploration into what might be more enjoyable, effective and convenient for each of us. This also can make things a little overwhelming — am I doing enough? is this right for me? what if I injure myself? what if I look silly? what if I can’t do it? is this the right intensity?

Sometimes, as adults, we get so caught up in the mechanics and science and research of things like exercise that we forget the purpose… Movement is part of living. Movement will mean different things at different times in life. Movement might be structured running or walking or weight training or might be hiking with your kids or jumping on the trampoline.

When looking at all the possible exercise options — Running, Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, Boot Camp, CrossFit, BodyPump, Spinning, Kick Boxing, Biking, Swimming, Circuit Training, Hiking, Weight Lifting, Sports, Kite Flying, etc. — think about where you are in life and create a purpose to your movement. And remember, be open to changing your movement plan as your body, life, likes and resources change! And have fun doing it — and be okay with where you are at that point in time.
