I have been researching BODYPUMP. Have any of you heard about it? It seems to be quite the workout. Still, I am not sure if it is for me. Have any of you tired it before? I want to get swoll, but also healthy for life. Thanks for the help in this matter.

Peloton Making Sweet Music

The workout Peloton is changing things up in 2021 by making their own music. You heard that right. No longer will Peloton be paying royalties to play other people's music. Now, they will be making their own stuff. But, Peloton will have some help along the way. Beyonce signed a couple year deal to create music for themed workouts. Peloton sales skyrocketed during the pandemic, and they have a ton of money to make this work. Will this business model work or will people miss the popular music?

Walking or Running Better In The Long-Term?

I have been thinking about exercise better in the New Year. I have been looking up if walking or running is better in the long-run. Anyone have some experience in this area? Please let me know!

Any thoughts on exercising in the winter?

Winter is upon my neck of the woods. I love to exercise outdoors. But, when winter comes, I feel like a hermit indoors that does not do anything. I have considered a stationary bike or treadmill to stay in shape. Any suggestions will help me out.

Cardio or Strength Training? That is the question.

I've been working out off and on for the past few years, but I've always focused on cardio with a little bit of weights. Lately, I have seen no results, and I wanted to change things up. I've been thinking about swapping to a more strength/weights focused workout, but I can't seem to decide if I should or not. I've looked up the benefits and although cardio might show quicker results, it seems like weights help more with long-term goals that stick. If you are a gym rat, which one do you prefer?

High wieght/low reps OR low wieght/high reps?

My mom had severe osteoporosis and so I want to do everything I can to avoid that. I have heard that exercise is the best way to build bones, but should I be doing my normal low weight/high reps routine that I do for cardio or should I switch over to a more high weight/low reps like the bodybuilders?

Getting into yoga

I've wanted to try to get into yoga for a very long time. Every time I do one video, I'll feel great and then wait 4 days before I decide to do another one, and before I know it, 4 months have passed. I've recently been trying to do videos every single day, but I'm wondering if buying a 10 class pass instead will help me get into it more. It'll force me to get up and go instead of doing it in my own home. However, the classes are expensive, about $20 per class.

Achilles are a-killing me.

I’ve always had overly tight achilles heel tendons. It doesn't come from an injury, they're just really short and really tight. There’s a chance that a sports medicine physical therapist could help me figure out how to fix this, but that’s fairly expensive and requires taking time off work to go to the appointments. On the other hand, I could just sleep in stretcher gear and hope for the best. Should I bite the bullet and see a specialist or try to DIY this?

A little exercise even worth it for weight loss?

Is it better to work out just a little bit every day or a more comprehensive workout twice a week? I’m trying to make serious changes, but I’m also balancing an attempt to really make and save up extra income too, so my time is somewhat limited. My primary goal is weight management so a small workout would consist of just a quick run on the treadmill and a longer one would be cardio plus weights.
