I've pretty much gone back to my tried and true favorites and pared down a lot. Especially yoga DVDs that I can't do anymore.

The Firm & Cathe, but I don't do them regularly anymore. I've moved over to less challenging and more feel-good workouts.

I couldn't answer this question!

I've stuck consistently with working out for 42 years. It's not the instructor or method or gadget. It is the a goal of moving and staying strong.

Always yoga. Usually something else too, but always yoga.

Definitely a fun question!

I may have some new faves. (Kettlebells, Cathe, Tracie Long)

However, the workouts that I seem to never tire of step, Pilates, kickboxing and anything Tamilee

I was never able to do step on a platform with multiple risers. So it may only be one riser, or just the platform nowadays, but still fun!

I'm just so grateful I have kept moving!

I actually found it depressing (for my situation). I ran consistently for 23 years and thought it would be part of my life forever until last year when I got injured and eventually had surgery. It's been one year since I last ran and I'm not even allowed to try again for four more months. I can't even walk now without pain so I can't even imagine running. I may not be able to ever run again. At this point, my goal is to walk without pain.

I also got a concussion in January and am still struggling with symptoms. Exertion makes me feel bad so I can't do much. After being so active before - running, lifting weights, spinning, using my heavy bag, etc. - this has all made me very depressed. Running was a huge part of my identity and now it's gone.

Meanwhile, I've gained a whole bunch of weight due to inactivity and depression.

I know others have handled similar circumstances in much better ways than I have and I feel quite ashamed for my reaction.

Anyway, running and weights were what I stuck with - and planned on sticking with - because they worked for me mentally and phyically.

Consistent exercise. That's the one and only thing I've stuck with since the 1980s. The focus of my exercises changes all the time; from cardio to strength to pilates to barre and other. But the one thing I've stuck with for over 40 years is that I consistently do a structured workout (whatever it is) about 5 times per week. It has become a habit and a way of life for me. It's the only constant and a non-negotiable thing in my life.
