We all know that exercise is good for us. It is good for the soul, brain, heart, etc. It can help us lower our stress levels, sleep better, reduce heart disease and other risks, and feel better overall. In my opinion, the greatest thing about exercise is that there are so many ways to do it. It is almost impossible to become bored with it. You have options anywhere from running to climbing to weightlifting and all the things in between.
I asked some of our trainers here at UF about their favorite form of exercise, and I wanted to share those answers with you just for fun!
Ethan – “Weightlifting because with this you can accomplish a little bit of everything (mobility, cardio, etc.)”
Dahveed – “Swimming is my favorite. I wish that I could do it more.”
Jared – “Weightlifting because I enjoy getting stronger but also striving to push myself and hit new numbers.”
Dylan K. – “My favorite form of exercise is ever evolving. However, I always enjoy a good pump, so hypertrophy training is my favorite form of training.”
CJ – “Making the average exercise weirder. And walking with my dogs.”
Zain – “Weightlifting because I don’t like running.”
And finally, myself – My favorite has to be hiking. I love everything about it. Especially the views that come after a difficult climb, and how accomplished you feel afterwards.
Thank you to all our trainers who participated in this brief and very broad survey and thank you to those of you who tell us what your answers are!
