WIN­NING EX­ER­CISE WIS­DOM

Life & Style Weekly - - Diets That Work -

As Lind­sey puts it, “If you don’t be­lieve ex­er­cise can be fun, you haven’t found the right work­out for you.” While she’s usu­ally game to try a va­ri­ety of new phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties, if she doesn’t en­joy them af­ter a few at­tempts, she won’t do them un­less they’re ab­so­lutely es­sen­tial for her train­ing. In­stead, Lind­sey chooses work­outs and ac­tiv­i­ties that sat­isfy the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria:

• Work­ing out should be fun. • The ex­er­cises you do should make you feel strong. • Your work­outs should give you a men­tal boost. • Phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity should make you feel good about your­self.

When she’s not train­ing, the go-to work­outs that of­fer these perks for Lind­sey in­clude spin­ning, horse­back rid­ing, road cy­cling, ten­nis, danc­ing, vol­ley­ball, box­ing and stand-up pad­dle­board­ing. To find the right fit­ness fit for you, she rec­om­mends try­ing at least one new work­out for 20 min­utes ev­ery week. “I love her mes­sage about find­ing some­thing you en­joy and giv­ing it at least four tries be­fore you give up on it,” says reg­is­tered di­eti­tian nutritionist Dawn Jack­son Blat­ner. “That’s an ap­proach every­one can ben­e­fit from.”
