A Poem About Exercising

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.


Keep exercising every day and increase your longevity. Be responsible and be around for your near and dear ones. Start exercising, start now.

I wrote this poem as a motivation to start exercising. I am trying to keep up with my exercise schedule and I hope you are too.

Exercise is easy, exercise is fun,

Exercise is great for everyone,

Run, jog, walk, run or skip,

Make sure you do at least a little bit.

Increase your exercise day by day,

Keep at it and you will find a way,

To be healthy, to be aware,

Exercise keeps you healthy,

Exercise takes care,

Exercise brings benefits,

Many benefits that are free,

Remember with exercise,

You can live long and carefree,

Free of all ailments, free of cholesterol,

Free from all aches and pains,

Be healthy and stand tall,

Get up from your couch,

And switch off the TV,

Put away your games and your PSP’s,

Run out, play and celebrate,

The benefits of exercise,

To be healthy and safe,

Exercise and be,
