Swimming is one of the most beneficial exercises one can do while being low impact on the joints. It can though become a little monotonous simply swimming continual laps. For the benefits of strength training try mixing in a few simple ground exercises every few laps. For example, 2 laps of freestyle then 10 push ups, 2 laps of breast stroke then 25 squats, 2 laps of back strock then 30 crunches.
I am over 60 and have only once tried to exercise in the past. I suffer from depression and the winter months are my worst time. I start a goal of anything, but I always manage to let the depression get to me. I have no motivation to exercise. Recently I joined Curves and stuck to it about 3 weeks. Then over the holidays I was busy with a lot of family. I exercised at Curves on an average of 2 days a week during that time. When I tried to get back on schedule none of my exercise showed up in the online site and that was all it took to make me lose focus. And their site is horrible plus their mobile app doesn't work at all. They also are not open from 1 pm to 4 pm, which are the times of day that work best for me. I also have panic attacks before I try to go to the gym, even thinking about it sets me off. Basically to sum it up, I just need something to make me self motivated.View Thread
I have Sleep Apnea COPD, asthma, high blood pressure and one kidney. I am on a diet and exercise program to lose weight. I have already lost 30 pounds. The biggest problem I am having is that I start gasping for air the minute I start exercising. Has anyone got any suggestions. Would using oxygen help or is there some exercises that may help.

I have been working out but can't seem to eat healthy. I buy all the right stuff, but then I end up at the fast food restaurants or the corner store buying junk because I don't want what I have in the house. Any advise would be greatView Thread
