    Getting fit

    Hello everyone

    Well once I get enough money from getting a job next year I am going to get an eventing trainer and get into eventing

    My problem is that when I go the full way around a cross country course I am out of breath because I am not fit enough and I feel this is not fair on my horse. So I was just wondering what are good ways of getting fit? I was thinking of starting kickboxing with my friend

    Thanks in advance

    I know that kickboxing is a very good way to stay in shape. Running around the neighborhood is also good, but its something that has to be done on a regular basis, not just every once in awhile.

    Do some yoga and pilates also. Strength training is always a good idea.

    Walking is also very good. Get a pedometer and make a goal of X number of steps per day. Our company is doing a challenge right now of 5,000 steps per day!

    Okay so I started kick boxing with my friend and now this is what I am planning to do every week

    2 sessions of kick boxing(monday and friday)
    At least 1 session of swimming
    And at least 2 days a week riding both my horses so that's 4 rides a week

    What you guys think?

    I think that sounds like a good workout.
    Good luck
