Question: I always think of cross training as the way exercise fanatics and professional athletes train. Is there a place for cross training in a basic fitness program?

Answer: You'll find that even if you only enjoy one specific type of exercise, be it jogging or biking or jazz dancing, or whatever you do as a hobby, getting involved in a basic cross training program will greatly enhance your performance in your favorite type of exercise.
Even if you do only 2 activities a playing softball on the weekends and jogging occasionally, you are already doing a basic cross training workout. Now if you add two workouts per week in the gym for strength training, and on one of those days you also incorporate a bike ride or an aerobics class, you are really on the cross training road.
Change your routine up every once in a while to keep it interesting and motivating and you will find that you will do everything better.
