In this New York Times article the author describes her ten year devotion to yoga as her only form of exercise. As her wedding approached she decided to hire a personal trainer and started doing yoga less frequently. Adding strength training helped her reach her goal weight in time for her wedding, plus she now feels stronger and leaner. What I like about this article is her discovery that mixing it up is a good idea. Whether you are into running, spinning, Pilates, Zumba or Cross Fit adding variety to your routine (cross training) will not only keep boredom at bay but also have you looking and feeling your best.
