I wrote a blog post for the Stack Exchange Fitness blog about my experience with fitness and exercise as a child, teenager, adult, and young professional. The point I wanted to make was that choosing an activity should be a person own action, that is should come from within. My experiences with fitness growing up have largely been either in the control of others or a reaction to what (I perceived) people were doing for fitness. The full post is called “Finding a Fitness Niche” at the blog, and I wrote it to hopefully give others a stepping stone to find out what kind of activity they might choose for staying healthy.
I think the Fitness and Nutrition Stack Exchange is a great source of information and definitely has a lot of potential despite being in beta for so long since its proposal on Area51. There have been ongoing issues with the definition of what fitness, health, and nutrition mean for people. Nonetheless, I still think it (and the whole Stack Exchange network too) is a great resource and community for people to go for information.
