Get Moving!

27 Jul

My goal in to encourage people to get out and be active so they can enjoy a long healthy life.  With this blog I hope to share my daily practices with exercise and diet.  Living in the Tahoe/Reno area there are so many enjoyable outdoor  activities to embrace and my goal is to share the things I enjoy while hearing feedback from others on what they’re doing .

In the winter I spend as much of my time snowboarding, but since the snow is all go I’ve had to open new doors and find new activities to keep me challenged.  Although I have no problem working out in a gym (and find myself in one a few times I week) I enjoy getting outside and using my great surroundings to keep me active.  Since the snow has been gone, I’ve been mountain biking a ton and love how challenging this sport is.  I also have been doing a lot of swimming and hiking and recently just found and new love in stand up paddle boarding.  I have such a passion for all of these things and love being able to share them with others.

Exercising has always been an important part of my daily routine and I think its essential in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Here are some reasons why exercising is so important: it reverses the detrimental effects of stress, it lifts depression, it improves learning, it builds self esteem and leaves you feeling euphoric. I look forward to blogging about the things I love to do and hope I can be of some influence in helping others further their passion in an active and healthy lifestyle.

    Tyler, I totally agree about the importance of exercise. I do a half-hour to hour of yoga daily, plus cardio on several other days and a few minutes of light weights. Without exercise, I wouldn’t have enough energy to make it through the workday.

    Bay Area kids at Nevada represent! I came here to go to school when I was 18 from San Francisco.

    Love your theme! I think I’ll switch mine.

      Kate, Im glad were on the same page about the importance of exercise. So many people dont realize how fun and easy it can be. Yoga is something I definitely want to start doing more of. Do you have any suggestions on good ways to get started? Thanks for the comment!
