A key to sticking with a fitness routine is to find something you enjoy doing, whether it's yoga, Pilates, bicycling, tai chi or cardio circuits, and a setting or group of people that motivates you to excel. Good health and well-being aren't just about exercising regularly, however, it's also eating healthy, learning about diseases and conditions, nurturing your spiritual side, alleviating stress, taking care of yourself and your family and leading a successful life.
