Hs, sticking to a consistent work out routine is hard, man. I'm wildly supportive of anyone that tries.

@Are0h
I always found classes easier - they were at specific times, and if I missed one I'd feel like I was falling behind. Also I got bored with lighting weights.

@anne I hear you. I'm a fan of whatever it takes to get one to be active on a regular basis.

The hard part is figuring out what works for the individual specifically. Going to classes definitely makes that process easier.

@Are0h
For years, for me, it was martial arts. I've gotten less tolerant of the nonsense that comes with them sometimes, though. I've got my eye open for dance classes. I figure it's way more likely that I'll want to dance with someone than punch someone.

@anne That's interesting. I was considering picking up some capoeira classes because I usually workout by myself and I wanted to be a bit more social.

That's a great idea. Dancing is full body work. Any particular style?

I used to do capoeira. It was a lot of fun, and I liked playing the instruments as well as playing the game. It's also quite connected to West African as well as Brazilian cultural and religious traditions.

As for dancing, well, it's a challenge: I don't know anything about dancing (apart from random nightclub flailing) so I don't really know where to start, especially as I'm tall and a bit sensitive about gender roles.
