Ive never liked the gym. It is filled the strange machines and monotonous activities one involves herself in to stay in shape. For example, the treadmill is a road to nowhere and made me feel like I was on some sort of human hamster wheel.

I wondered if maybe there was something wrong with me. I live in New York City which is riddled with gym goers. So I questioned what it was that I hated so much about the gym. It boils down to this: going to the gym is boring. I know the end goals of fitness activities at the gym are supposed to lead to weight loss, physical fitness and overall good health, but I find the gym incredibly banal.

However, I wanted to a way to stay in shape. Then I thought: what if there was a way to integrate exercise into the context of my life without joining a gym? And low and behold, there was. Here’s what I did. Involved in my life routine were stroller walks with my son. So I would intentionally take longer stroller walks. I am working at a school that is four miles from my house, instead of taking the subway to work, I walk there and back.

The point is, you can find ways to integrate exercise into the context of your life too. You don’t have to join a gym to stay in shape. Walk more and take your child out with you on these long walks. If you have a choice to take public transportation or walk choose walking.
