Right, so exercise is good for your bones – among other things. But what if you really don't enjoy exercise?

Take action:
You might, or might not be doomed to frail bones yet. Turn up the music and dance. It will give you a great cardiovascular workout and is a brilliant mood lifter – plus, it's fun. If you're bored of your gym routine, you might want to try dance classes. Look in the Yellow Pages and ask friends for dance class info. Modern, jazz, hiphop, salsa or belly dancing – your options are endless.

Check the amount of calories you burn while dancing.
