|Encouragement to exercise
From the forward of the 1996 Surgeon General's report on physical activity: ". . . more needs to be learned about what helps individuals change their physical activity habits and how changes in community environments, policies, and social norms might support that process."
Perhaps becoming a member of the Exersite community can help you increase your level of physical activity and thereby improve your life. Join Exersite today. Learn more in about Exersite and how to use Exersite.

|Find an exercise partner
It is so much easier to get out there and work out when you have someone to work out and share your goals with. Don't get discouraged if your friends don't want to run, bike, hike or swim with you - just find new friends! That's what WomensExerciseNetwork is for. Co-ed.
|Beth explains why she keeps track of her exercise
I live on a beautiful, large lake in Minnesota, and have just begun swimming 2 miles a day. I want to increase my distance, and have plans to swim quite a few miles in the future. I am 60+ and need to improve on my strokes as well as my times. It usually takes me an hour to swim a mile, however, when it gets darker earlier, as it is now, I can swim it in 45 minutes. When it gets too cold to swim in the lake, I'll do my workouts at the Y.
I love swimming and enjoy doing it. My doctor says this is the best exercise I can do for my lungs, as I have had a few respiratory problems in the past. Next year I hope to have someone follow me in a boat while I swim across the lake -- 5 miles or more!

We who exercise regularly already know that we are more interesting than the rest of the crowd, but who knew that this can apply to our pets as well? You really should check out Ted and Umbra at Swimming Dog Videos. Umbra will especially appreciate it if you sign the guest book.
