    No kidding- in all seriousness- Adult hooping. It's a heavier hoop weighing about 1lb. The heavier it is and the larger the circumference the easier it is to keep up. (As the more mass the faster the momentum)
    It tones you up really well and you can learn amazing tricks if you want to.
    I'm in the Cambridge University fire troupe doing fire hooping and last sunday performed infront of 8,000 people.
    It is truly fun and easy.

    Any racket sport, and do a bit of running if you've got nothing else to do.

    Even a trip to your local park with a few friends doing something active like football or basketball is good, and you have a laugh too! (This has reminded me of that Friends episode with the competitive American football game hehe )
    or the one where Ross players rugby in the park to impress that English girl!

    Walk. Climb a tree. Play your wii. dance. run when nobody's around. do cartwheels. play tennis against a wall. skip with a rope or without. rolly-pollys. housework (not really fun but it keeps my mum in shape). gardening. I go fencing for £5 once a week.
    My advice is be flexable about the definiftion of fun when it comes to excerise and you'll find you have more of it just because of the increase in endorphins.

    I personally love cycling but I live in a really pretty area so it's nice to cycle and look around, but in a city it's less fun

    local councils are starting to build free 'outside gyms' in some areas, might be one near you?
    they have most the equipment you would find in a gym, just gets a bit cold out there!

    It works wonders on your thighs, hips and stomach. People normally think that it's very hard because they've tried to hoop with tiny £2 hoops from asda.
    I can hoop on my foot while doing a shoulder-stand but I still find the crappy hoops hard.
    I've taught loads of my friends how to do it- it's really easy and doesn't feel like a chore
    Hope you try it! If you want to know good links, or how to make an adult hoop cheaply, just PM me.

    The question asks it all really.

    I've been to gyms before. I liked it because they were so nearby, if I felt lazy, I had no choice still. But they are so expensive!

    What do you suggest? There must be something better than home exercises like running up and down stairs all day.
    Try watersports, or mountain biking.
