The 10 Best Workouts for People Who Hate to Exercise

Nobody likes to work out. Perhaps you cannot fit the exercises into your overcrowded schedule or you find the exercise routines too boring to carry out on a daily basis. Learn how to make exercise fun, creative, and habitual.

Does the thought of running make your knees ache? Do gym memberships make you long for the great outdoors? How about hiking? Oh, wait, bugs. Maybe you’ve been thinking about exercising for some time now and haven’t taken that first step. “The key is to find something you like and stick with it,” said Joe Kekoanui, owner of Huddle Reactive Sports Training. “Just because your friend found their workout mojo through running doesn’t mean you will. There’s definitely an exercise for everyone; it’s just a matter of continuing to try until something works for you.” If you haven’t exercised in a while, Kekoanui suggests starting with low-impact exercises.
