I love this thread... people who by their own admission don't exercise giving exercise advice. Pretty soon we'll have people who don't sail giving sailing advice.

I guess you don't know much about what Pilates (no apostrophe) is. I started doing it as a way of re-hab after 2 slipped discs by the age of 26. It has made me stronger and free of the aches, pains and debilitating injuries that used to plague me. I only exercise so that I can stay physically able to do all the things I want to do, which sounds like what you are advocating.

Used to regularly in my competitive days.. swim 5+ miles a day, hockey training 3 hrs a week, kabaddi training twice a week... but as I'm no longer in that scene...
Unless they've changed the crawl, breast and backstroke and how one plays/trains for hockey etc...
Funny how the young-uns always know better...lmao
YON... Exactimo m8.. for me there's no regime.. rather a variety of differing styles that suit my needs...
Physical reaction speed
Agility and Balance
Lung Capacity/Breathing
Flexibility

Talking Nemesis has got it right

Got addicted to exercise during rehab from war wound 38 years ago and Pilates is part of my regular routine. My wife, also a gym rat, has used Pilates to successfully keep the side effects of her type-1 diabetes at bay.
What can be really interesting is using amn exercise ball on a boat -- it really improves your balance but you get s number of bruises in the meantime.
Our biggest problem is cardio (heart/lungs). Pilates does help with that but I use supersets (no trest between sets or exercises to get the heart going.
Climbing the mast is also good.

LOL... seeing as the 1st 15yrs of my life were spent in India/Pakistan some of my methods/style is probably very close... seeing as thats where Pilates drew his inspiration from.
I think I'll stick to my regime on the basis's of "If it aint broke..Why Fix it".
It got me back to full flex with my leg after shattering a kneecap in 85.. and I don't limp.. do a full lotus.. and contrary to what the experts told me I've not had to go back for knee replacement. So maybe that says something for my regulated diet

I'm not knocking it, just saying... its not for me right now..

There are plenty of people who don't cruise giving cruising advice on this forum

What we have here is a big difference in what everyone means by "keeping in trim".

The first step to having a useful discussion is for everyone to think carefully about how they are defining the terms that are being discussed and how your definition might be different from how the person you are about to disagree with is defining the term.

You might agree with each other more than you think. Some people here mean "not getting fat", some mean "being in peak, competitive athlete physical condition", some (me) mean "a body that is useful and set up for longevity".

What am I talking about - this is SAILNET!!

You all have to be kidding - exercise routines while cruising. Besides the operation of the sailing vessel, when in port/anchorage there is no end of hiking, walking, swimming (and cleaning the hull), and best of all long walks to the grocery markets/stores with 10kg/22 lbs of groceries in your backpack. Unless you are static live-aboards in a major port with cars, etc., you will be getting more exercise than you ever had in your former life on land. Daily market trips instead of one per week and of course, just walking everywhere to see the sights and people of the country. And it that is not enough, on smaller boats everyday is an exercise in shifting all your junk from one end of the boat to the other so you can get to something or find a place to lay down and rest.

Lol... thats true.. but on a voyage one can get shakey on the legs after a while... upper body is getting plenty so you need something to balance out, especialy on under 27ftrs.
Can't exactly go walk about... 4steps fwd, 4 steps back, plus a coupla shuffles round the shrouds... after one passage which lasted a few weeks and for one reason or another I had not managed my usual routine.. I stepped outa the dinghy, climbed the ladder, took 2 steps along the jetty and my legs gave way.. had the wobbles for a couple of days and had to work slowly back up to my normal pace... either that or they locked out in confusion... all those muscles anticipating sudden shifts n they seized up when nothing happened... lol
Not had it happen before, or since, so figure it was down to the enforced idleness.

get an exercise ball. you can do wonderful exercise on it. also if you get some bands you can do a great exercise program on a boat and if you do not take breaks you can get a good cardio workout as well. the only thing you cant do it if the boat is rocking really bad.

Exercize ball!! Great idea. It can double as a fender and triple as a trap float! :-)
