Laps, water aerobics, or just for fun.  Swimming locations can be found in fitness facilities, town pools, lakes, rivers, and even the ocean!

Dance


On your own, with your friends, with a partner, with a video, in a class, anywhere!  Look online for dance studios and classes near you.


Yoga


Relax your mind while strengthening your muscles, stretching your body, and improving your balance.  At home, in a class, or with a video yoga is great for getting physical activity while reducing stress.

For fun or as a means of transportation, map out a safe bike route to your work or school.



Fitness Videos


Easy to do in your own living room!  Videos are available for all kinds of exercise – aerobics, dance, yoga, “boot camp,” strength training, you name it.  Get them online, on Netflix, in the video store, or at the library.
