Your Fitness Bucket List

Why do you exercise? Deep down, on those days you have to talk yourself into getting your sweat on, what motivates you to work out?

On my bucket list? Climb ever higher!

No doubt you are inspired by more than wanting to look good or have a 6-pack, or lose weight. Even with those goals, what happy thing happens once you achieve them? We were posed with this question and had to think a moment.

Actually, we had the question posed a different, more fun way: “What is on your Fitness Bucket List?”  That sounds more enticing, right? So tell us – what’s in your bucket? Does your list include performing certain exercise feats? For example, do you want to:

  • Complete a half marathon?
  • Hold a plank for 3 minutes?
  • Finally do the splits (and walk afterwards!).
  • Hit a certain time or distance on the treadmill?

Or would you put activities on your bucket list that you would enjoy once you are more fit? For instance, sky dive (let’s just state here and now for the record that neither of us has that particular goal. Hurl! But you might!). Or you’d tackle that hiking trail over the mountains and through the woods? Maybe you have a plan to travel the world and haul your own luggage or backpack as soon as you get stronger. (We like the plan that offers bellpersonage service, frankly).

Pinterest Board of Bucket List

Kymberly's Fitness Bucket List

Now if you are wondering about OUR Fitness Bucket List, why thanks! Don’t mind if we do share! We worked up Pinterest boards entitled “Fitness Bucket List.” I know, we got all creative and wacky on you there! To be accurate, the CEO of FitFluential,* Kelly Olexa challenged us to create such a board. And we take doubledown dares as we are double time twins!

Alexandra: It took me a while to start my list, because I feel like I’m mostly doing what it is I like to do already, but I do love walking and travel, so I really want to go to various places in the world and walk. I love walking in the mountains, the city, country trails, along the beach, almost anywhere. Not hiking and camping – bleech. I hate camping. I love walking. And I’d really love to learn the Dougie from our First Lady Michelle Obama. And anything that involves disco would be on my list too. Maybe a lesson on dancing the entire scene from “Saturday Night Fever” that John Travolta did to “You Should Be Dancing.” If I could memorize that routine and do it that well I’d be pretty happy.

Kymberly: If you have followed our blog for any time you will not be shocked to hear that my numero uno dream is for us to be the first twins on Dancing With the Stars. And not the first twins to be eliminated either! I also recognized how much I enjoy water sports such as paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling – as long as the water is warm and calm.  This is one area Alexandra and I  totally differ as A-twin re-enacts the melting scene from Wizard of Oz when she gets near water.  Another huge item on my list is for medical technology to make strides and find a way to give me back the knee joints I had in my twenties. Aaaaaah, to run and jump again with ease and freedom!

Once you make your list or create a Pinterest Fitness Bucket board, you will notice something veeeeerrrry interesting – themes and trends reveal themselves. At least for us, they did. Give it a whirl. Then tell us all about it in the comments below. We’re waiting! Impatiently.

    On my bucket list: to master all those bendy, twisty elite Yoga poses. Such as the Twisted Handstand Bendy-Contorsion Flying Eagle Pose. Isn’t that what it’s called?

    Oy vey – is that a bit of Yiddish I hear? My grandmother (aka Bubbe) would have been so proud. Can’t wait to check out your Pinterest boards and meet ya’ll in 3-D living color in Denver! And yes, you’d get my vote on DWTS any day. In it for the sparkly outfits or hottie dance partners?

      My dad shared a lot of Yiddish sayings with us when we were growing up. Pretty sure he regrets our good memories! As for DWTS, while sparkly outfitls and hot dancer guys have their appeal, I am in it for the fame and dancing! I want to nail those dances and get famous doing so. Is that too much to ask? Actually, more fame is good if it brings wealth and a tv gig. Too much to ask? Naaaah. Count down to Denver and in person meets!

      Ok, so maybe I didn’t do ten things, but I can ealsiy say I did two.First, I found this blog and with it a brand new goal, to run the Princess Half Marathon in 2013. Second, I joined my husband in a brisk walk around the neighborhood with the baby. (It’s a pretty small neighborhood so we did two laps.)

    I started a fitness bucket list, but haven’t pinned anything yet… I know I’d like to have a re-match with 26.2. For better time. :)

    I’m glad I found your blog today! I’m pretty sure I had the cousin to those cat’s-eye glasses in elementary school— which dates both of us (shhh). On my fitness bucket list: learn lots of ice dances with my coach, land an axel, compete at Adult US Nationals in Figure Skating in my age group. Just reached a competition level where I would be eligible to compete there.
