The current generation living a hectic life full of busy schedules have opted for a much simple method of remaining fit.This method is widely known as gym exercises.Well hitting the gym for better physique has its own merits as well as side effects. Beginning with the need of joining a gym, the first need is perhaps the lack of time an individual has to maintain his/her health.

Nowadays gym has become popular way of staying fit. But personally I feel that more than visiting gyms, one need to adopt better life style to stay fit. Simple changes such as taking regular walks, doing household chores, eating healthy foods etc can improve health considerably.


I try to keep some physical activity on my exercise regime everyday.  Personally I am not a big fan of gym and it is my least preferred choice.  I go gym twice a week for some cycling,  elliptical and some weight exercises.  Rest of the days I go for outdoor activities like yoga,  walking,  jogging and swimming.  Exercising in fresh air makes me feel much better than gymming. 


Gymming is not always the best option. Personally I feel the easiest and most simple method of staying fit is walking everyday for at least 30 minutes. A nature walk for me is the most refreshing.
