Having been a swimmer for most of my life, I have self-proclaimed "swimmer coordination" (aka- clumsy, unable to catch a ball, awkward on land). I have been "in shape" most of my life, but my athleticism in general terms is lacking. My competitive days in one sport are long gone, so I don't have any excuses to not work on athleticism. For the past 6 months or so, I've made an effort to expand my athletic horizons. This includes strength work (circuit training, TRX), yoga, & interval training in swimming and running. I do have belief that I can be a "coordinated" athlete, and with a move to Utah in a few months I plan to expand even more including:
1. Skate skiing (the type of x-country skiing where you push each leg back and out to the side)
2. Road biking (hills, hills, & more hills!)
3. cyclocross- I have always been intrigued with this sport
Don't be scared to test your athleticism by trying new sports and/or exercise classes. It's easy to default to what you enjoy the most, but "mixing it up" is good for your health.
