At the risk of over-sharing, let me mention here that Paul just does not enjoy exercise! I am a gym rat & pretty much thrive of every kind of movement possible. Thank goodness, some years back, we landed on ballroom dance as something we could do together and get some exercise at the same time.
Some people don't enjoy the traditional gym experience of getting on a treadmill or lifting weights. Trying something new to you, like GeoCaching or fencing or curling might just be the thing. At this time of New Year's Resolutions, as all year long, let's underline the essential need for exercise AND how it's sometimes good to mix it up.
Another activity drawing people in is Circus Arts. The Commonwealth Circus Center opened this fall. It is a venture our daughter Sophia Herscu began with a number of colleagues. Another way to get your exercise!
