Yoga is all about flexibility, and it’s a wonderful way to de-stress and unwind, especially with the busy family and work life of women in their30’s. Why not take a class two nights a week, or buy a video and try it at home? It really is a great workout, too!


Distance Running

If you started running or jogging in your thirties, why not kick it up a little and try a mini-marathon while your joints can still take the impact? Make sure you have the right shoes, and stop if your knees, ankles, or back can’t take it… what a great workout!



Biking Photo Credit: jeremyhughes

If running or jogging is just too hard on your joints, then why not try biking instead? It’s also a great cardio workout, and it can be a lot of fun! If you don’t want to ride outdoors or if you want to condition, try riding a stationary bike at the gym.


Step Aerobics

Step aerobics is so much fun, and what a great cardio workout! If you’re intimidated or unsure, try a class with a friend… most gyms will let you try one class free, and if you love it, try a class that meets once a week.


Weight Training

If you’re trying to keep your girlish figure, and avoid the natural hip and bootie spread that happens after kids, or that arm flab we all see now and then, try adding a few days of weight training to your workout. Remember, though, that any exercise or diet product that promises to help you “lose belly fat” or “lose butt fat” is plain lying — no such product exists. The only way to tone and trim is an all-over workout combined with a low-fat, high fiber diet.

I know my knees started to ache in my thirties, after decades of distance running, so I switched from the treadmill to the elliptical machine. It’s still quite a good cardio workout, only without the impact on your knees and ankles.


Rowing Machine

It’s also a good idea to add a couple of days of non-weight bearing exercise, and using a rowing machine is a great way to do that! Make sure you’re using the proper form though, and the right weight, or you’ll hurt your back! Start by leaning forward, then pull back til your back in straight, and the handle is level with your abs — don’t lean BACK!


Team Sports

Hey, you’re only in your thirties! You can still absolutely compete in team sports! As long as your doctor doesn’t advise you otherwise, keep on playing in that softball, volleyball, or dodge-ball league…

Those are just my suggestions for great workouts for women in their 30’s, but I’m sure there are so many more! If you’re in your30’s, how do you work out, and why? Do you have any other tips to share? Please let me know!
