Characteristics: Able to push themselves easily
Types of exercises to try: online videos/tutorials, swimming, going to the gym, high-intensity classes
Some people are naturally self-motivated, and if you enjoy your alone time when exercising, then activities such as swimming, heading to the gym and home workouts by following online tutorials are ideal.
To keep your motivation strong, be sure to mix up your routine. You can switch up the style and duration of your workout: this could mean spending one week doing longer sessions of exercise, then switching it up next week to shorter, higher-intensity sessions such as interval training. (Or, why not try a new routine like Olympic diver Anabelle Smith’s micro workout?)
Regardless of which exercise you choose, it’s important to do a mix of low-intensity and high-intensity workouts to strengthen your whole body. The Ministry of Health NZ1 recommends walking as a relatively easy, low risk workout that’s gentle on the joints, while something like weight training strengthens bones and builds muscle.
