Exercise is an essential part of life. In addition to keeping your body in peak condition, exercise also helps improve your state of mind and gives you more energy. The more you work out, the better you’ll feel.
Working out is a popular pastime for many Americans. Millions of people go to the gym every day, while others go jogging outside or attend special classes for things like yoga or Pilates.
Read on to learn more about improving your exercise regimen.

Dialog

1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Each person has his/her own preference when it comes to exercising. If you’re in a large city in the U.S., your exercise choices are unlimited. Whether you want to work out on your own, with a personal trainer, or in a class, you can find the option that’s right for you.
Here are some of the most popular ways to get in shape:
Go to a Gym!
If you like to work out by yourself (or with a friend), you can go to a gym. Big fitness centers like 24 Hour Fitness and Gold’s Gym usually have a wide variety of exercise facilities. You can lift weights, play sports, ride a stationary bike, use the stairmaster, run on a treadmill, swim, and do a variety of other activities.
Take a Class!
Since the 80’s, exercise classes have been becoming more and more popular. It seems that there are special classes for just about every kind of exercise. You can get instruction from a teacher in everything from aerobics to spinning to yoga to Pilates to TAEBO to kick-boxing...
Get a Personal Trainer!
Although they can be expensive, personal trainers are a great way to go. A personal trainer will work with you to figure out the best way for you to exercise and then help you learn more about your own body and the best way to keep it in shape.

Discussion

Getting in shape will make your body feel good and your mind feel even better. One thing to remember about any exercise plan is that food is essential! There’s no point in exercising if you’re going to eat unhealthy food. A combination of regular exercise and a healthy diet will get you feeling good in no time!
Have a great week!
