weight training causes the metabolism to increase in speed for up to 16hours after a workout, so you are burning lots of extra calories. also, any mass you gain in muscle burns calories too. 1lb of muscle burns 35cal extra a day, whereas fat burns 2cal.

plus weight training is much more fun than running! :wink:

I would say the best thing is something you enjoy. I hate running and so it is very hard for me to stick to it. Also for me being part of a team is a real plus. I like meeting new people who share a common interest. It also helps me to know that others are counting on me to show up to practice and to push my self as hard as I can. When I lift weights I am often the only female there and no one talks to me. Of course I’m not there to socialize, but it makes me feel like a leper. Boxing is awesome! I really like it. I have been taking classes a community center, its cheap. You might want to also look into rowing, its easier on your joints then running and it is a great full body work out.
