4 Ways To Make Working Out Fun
Many people refuse to exercise simply because they find it…shock horror…boring!
The same workout at the same place almost every day. Okay yes, that definitely doesn’t sound very fun at all, does it? But have no fear, working out does not have to be boring! Once you try a few different things you’re sure to fall in love with exercising all over again.
So instead of waking up dreading your workout and feeling like it’s just another gruelling chore, instead let’s get excited about working out. Trust me, if you start finding your exercises fun, you’ll be more likely to keep working out as part of your daily routine and you’ll find yourself a lot more motivated.
Mix It Up
Don’t fall into the trap of doing the same fitness program every day – of course, you’re going to get a little bit over it. You’ll notice the two main workouts people tend to do at the gym are cardio and weights programs. Next time, instead of dragging yourself out of bed to do the same cardio or weight workout; try something different. From yoga, Pilates, dancing, kickboxing, rowing, the list goes on… there are so many different types of workouts you can try.
Pump Up The Tunes
Music can help motivate you and improve your performance. Seriously, some good upbeat songs can really give you a serious boost, push you harder and make strenuous activity seem so much easier. Before your next workout, take some time to update your current tunes to make a fresh new workout mix. You can find my workout playlist here.
Complete A Workout Challenges
There are so many challenges out there that will step your workout up a notch and let out that competitive streak in you. Think 30-day challenges and Couch to 5k! You’ll find yourself having a lot of fun as you record your successes and find yourself moving up in each level of the challenge. You can even create your own one!
Join a workout group or find a fitness buddy
Join a class at your local gym, find a fitness group online or just workout with a fitness buddy. There’s nothing better than working out with friends. Trust me, you’ll be having more fun in no time! Just make sure that you are actually focused on working out and not just gossiping…. come on, we’ve all been guilty of this before!
