Discuss Eddie's answer to: What's the best exercise schedule?

I have always been an athlete and this is the first time in my life that I am not involved in anything organized. I have a gym membership where I can swim, go to the gym, or do the gym classes ...

I think that cross-training is the best.  By cross-training I mean do a big variety of exercises. Some days try swimming. Other days train with weights. And other days do gym classes. Why cross-train? For one thing, you are less likely to get bored if you are always doing something different.  If your routine is fun and full of variety then you are more likely to stick with it. You are also working a big variety of muscle groups when you cross-train.
