    including swimming, walking briskly and jogging.

    Are these two sentences OK?

    I am really fond of doing aerobic exercise including swimming, walking briskly and jogging.
    I am really fond of doing aerobic exercise which includes swimming, walking briskly and jogging.

    See above. With the addition of a comma, they're OK. I would probably say "I really like doing aerobic exercise, such as swimming, brisk walking, and jogging."

    I prefer "I really like" to "I am really fond of". We tend to use "fond of" when referring to other people - I'm really fond of my cousin.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
