Need to Exercise? Here Are Some Ideas!

By Donna Stark

It's no secret that physical activity is key to maintaining your overall health, wellness, and fitness. Daily exercise is considered to be one of the best ways to reduce the risk of chronic disease, increase mobility, and reduce stress, and luckily for us all, it doesn't require hours at the gym. Just 30 minutes a day is enough to make a difference in how well we feel right now and in the future. But what type of exercise should you choose? You aren't at the same level as someone who trains for triathlons, but you also aren't a couch potato who hasn't moved for months. Well, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic may have a suggestion or two for you. Take a look.


The great thing about cycling is that it can be done both indoors and outdoors. Whether you join a spin class at your local gym or hit the road with your own bike, the benefits you receive will be great! You will be able to increase your heart rate, boost endurance, and build muscle, all while reducing excess strain on your joints. That's right, cycling is a joint-friendly exercise to partake in, so if you are coming off an injury or are dealing with other joint issues, cycling may be exactly what you are looking for!


If you are lucky enough to live near a body of water and love to spend time in nature, get rowing! Many people love to kayak because it's an incredible way to increase muscle strength, tone the body, and escape from daily problems, all while being able to enjoy everything that Mother Nature provides. But don't worry if you aren't near any water. You can also get the same benefits to your body with an indoor rowing machine. 

Water Aerobics

You've heard about all the benefits that swimming can bring, but have you heard about those you will get from water aerobics? Water aerobics is a fun, low-impact exercise that can be done indoors in a class or outdoors in your pool. It consists of different movements that help to burn calories, increase strength, and build endurance. Here are just a few examples of what you can do.

  • Walking or jogging
  • Tuck jumps
  • Balance exercises
  • Flutter kicking
  • Arm circles

The great thing about water aerobics is that you can increase the intensity of your workout as slowly or as quickly as you want. You are in complete control!

Physical Activity Is Key

Staying healthy and fit is the first step toward a long and happy life, so make sure you are moving your body every day! And if you need help with doing so, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. They won't let you down!
