DON'T LIKE RUNNING? TRY THESE STAY FIT WORK OUTS

Some people love running...that would be me. However, there are some things I've been doing to  improve my health. The list is recommended by thrillist.com.

  • JUMPING ROPE. It's not as high impoact as running and easier on your knees. 30 minutes burns almost as many calories as a 30 minute jog.
  • CIRCUIT TRAINING. This is what I do with my Trainers Kylie and Tanner at Rejuv Medical twice a week. A combination of planks, lunges, lifting weights and more. You are supposed to do each one for about a minute with no breaks in between, so your heart rate stays up.
  • INTERVAL WALKING. Which is easier on your knees, and it still gets your heart rate up. The idea is to change your speed up about once a minute, so sometimes you're walking almost as fast as possible...but not always.
