Some people seams to think that being a gymnast and a computer geek is odd. I would like to think it is the ultimate combination body and mind exercise.

Talking about exercise on these boards will quickly get you blask listed. Or even worse, they’ll put you on those people search sites. Don’t do it Smile

They can put me on any list...it doesn't matter anymore. There is no privacy anymore. Where we live, how much we paid for the house, our age, etc are all over the net now. Where we live, I can zoom in on our house from the county website! Smile

Cant stand the gym, riding a peace of equipment is boring, weights are stupid at least to me. I run and ride mountain bikes. I have to be outside, its what i do to justify sitting and watching movies. My other favorite thing to do

some of us move our toes, others have a special talent of moving their ears.
Well I enjoy programming a lot in linux and doing some coding in XBMC here and there,
still learning. To get in shape I enjoy bicycling, going hiking, camping, just getting away
from the technological and getting closer to nature. Cool

You're probably right. I know it is HTPC forum, but I'm trying to find out what fellow HTPC users do to stay in shape other than moving fingers! Smile

I commute by bike, mostly off-road. Do about 25-35mi a day. On the weekends spring/summer/fall I split my time between endurance cross country races (9/12/24hr races various spots on the east coast), gravity races, snowboarding/skiing, skydiving, a little rock climbing/hiking and this year I'm going to delve into hang gliding. Aside from that, just about an hour a day 3-5 days a week regular p90x-type workouts to keep everything else in shape.

All of that is just maintenance though. The real workout is a single father of two toddlers. THAT is what wears me out!

Besides my day job, blogging about HTPC and starting up a small HTPC-related e-shop while also being a husband/dad I've been doing triathlon since 2005. I started to have a goal to lose weight and get in shape then I caught the tri bug. I've also done a bunch of 5Ks, a couple of half-marathons, marathon relays and 200+mi relays. Last year I didn't do any tris because of time and money crunch (i.e. really could not afford the pool membership any longer) and admittedly being a little burnt-out but I'd like to do one this year -- I'll just swim in the lake for training and take it easy -- not find the need to crush some personal record.

I also occassionally do yoga and pilates. I need to focus more on yoga and pilates -- running alone does a number on my body but I get lazy and just want to be out on the road. Getting out there for a run or bike keeps me sane.

I've always liked to be active. Before kids I played volleyball with a club (I was a middle blocker) so that was practices, leagues, tournaments on the weekend. That kept me in great shape. Then when the kids came along I could not longer commit to it. I miss volleyball terribly but I am not sure I could jump 6 inches now Smile
