Wellness Wednesday: {Exercise Part 3}

Welcome back to "Wellness Wednesday", a midweek look at one aspect of our health and wellness in life. Remember that I'm using the Wheel of Wellness to help visualize health in life:

If you need a little refresher, click here. We are currently in the middle of Life Task 2: Self Direction, and today we will continue to discuss the subtask of Exercise (you can see "part 1" of exercise here, and "part 2" of exercise here).
Last week I outlined some tips for success in developing a plan! These tips can help you be successful in staying healthy not only through the holiday season, but throughout the year as well. 

Today I want to pass along a few websites that are helpful when creating a fitness plan, and establishing a well rounded fitness routine.

Best Body Fitness : Tina has a great balance of health, nutrition, and fitness in her life. Her site includes a number of great fitness routines and reviews of various DVDs. She's an excellent resource!
Mayo Clinic: Fitness training: Elements of a well-rounded routine : This is a great article that breaks down the types of exercise and training needed to be healthy overall. I highly suggest reading it!
Stretching: Focus on Flexibility: This article goes in depth with information on stretching. At the bottom of the article are more links to various stretches, etc...
RealAge - This site has a variety of different programs and health information that is free! They have some great walking videos

Remember that exercise and well rounded fitness isn't JUST about cardio or JUST about strength training. It's about a balance of a number of components. I hope these links are helpful in identifying things you can do in each area of fitness to increase your overall fitness in life!

Now it's your turn:
What are your favorite fitness websites? How do you plan to stay fit during the holidays?
