Curtis:  Hi everybody. It's Curtis and Amy here from Real English Conversations. And today we're going to talk all about exercise.

Amy:  Yeah. So I think that there's definitely two different types of people. And I guess the mindset1 when we talk about exercise. There's people that really enjoy doing exercise, and they do it for almost like entertainment at the same time.  And then there's another group of people that, um, maybe they're a little bit lazier, or they don't like to do exercise.

Curtis:  Yeah.

Amy:  Or they just have a hard time getting going on it2. So... What are we like?

Curtis:  uh, we are kind of like the people that have a hard time getting going on it.  Like we like exercise, and we'll go out for bike rides and stuff like that and, uh, but it's the getting going part that's a little bit difficult for us.

Amy:  Okay, so what are some of the things that we tell ourselves that, you know...you know, like...I guess it depends if you're really focused on...on exercise, and it's a big priority to you in...in your life, you're going to make time for exercise. So what are some of the reasons why we don't get around to exercising every single day?

Curtis:  We tend to make excuses, like, uh, we've really got to work, or I've...I've really got to study Spanish.

Amy:  Um-hum. Like we either have our responsibilities at our other job, which is a delivery driving job. Or we're working on the project, or we're studying.

Curtis:  Yeah.

Amy:  And it seems that exercise doesn't have as high of a priority as these other responsibilities in our life.

Curtis:  Right.

Amy:  However, that has an effect on your health. What can happen if you don't exercise? Or maybe what are some of the...the physical benefits to your body of exercising on a regular basis?

Curtis:  Exercising on a regular basis can help you lose weight.

Amy:  Um-hum. If you have weight to lose.

Curtis:  If you have weight to lose, it can improve your blood flow.

Amy:  Your circulation.

Curtis:  Your circulation.

Amy:  Prevent heart attacks.

Curtis:  Yes.

Amy:  And strokes.

Curtis:  Yeah. I can think of one right off the top of my head right now, and that's kind of like a person that goes into the bush2 with a backpack, with all they can carry.

Curtis: right.

Amy: And I know for me at times, it’s still overwhelming and I have a fairly high level in, in the language that I’m learning. But for you what was it like when you decided to start studying Spanish without a classroom, without any guidance what was it like for you initially?

Curtis:  Initially, it was kind of nerve racking1or frustrating I didn’t know where to begin. And I thought well the internet, of course, is, you know, a place where you can go to try and find things to help you out. But it’s so full, jam-packed2, of information and resources I didn’t know which one to pick. So, luckily, I have you, and you kind of guided me into a number of different resources that I can use and select from that were maybe the most useful.

Amy: So, for me, I definitely have different resources that I’ve found the over the course of time3
