How to Make Exercise Fun
Change it up
You know the saying, “variety is the spice of life”? It’s so true for your exercise routine. Keep it varied, keep it fresh and keep it interesting. If you do the same thing each time you work out, it’s inevitable that you’re getting to get bored at some point. This will be sooner rather than later if you don’t even enjoy what you’re doing in the first place! So, alternate your run with a kettlebell workout, your HIIT workout with an aerial yoga class. You get the idea. Not only will this variety be good for your mind, keeping exercise fun, your body will benefit too, achieving better physical results.
Workout with a friend
There is nothing else that will make exercise more fun than working out with a friend. Someone to laugh and whinge with you as you get through the workout. You’ll encourage, motivate and inspire each other, and you can grab a coffee together afterwards to reward all your efforts.
Don’t be intimidated by these. Joining in group fitness classes can make exercise SO MUCH FUN. Remember that probably most people in the room felt nervous their first time, it’s completely natural. Focus on yourself and the instructor until your confidence grows. Once you’re comfortable, it can feel really great to share a smile with a stranger to motivate each other. You’re in this exercise thing together. There are such a great variety of classes available now, there’s bound to be something you can find that you will love.
Turn the volume up
Who doesn’t love playing their favourite tunes at top volume?! Guaranteed to make exercise fun, so set your playlist or shuffle songs from your favourite era. You’ll work harder, the time will pass quicker, and guess what? You’ll enjoy yourself.
Use a fitness app
There are a huge variety of fitness apps on the market now, most of which have a free trial period. These apps can be great to help keep your exercise routines fresh and fun. You can track your stats, compete virtually against others, and socialise with other users on Facebook groups. They are definitely worth giving a go. They’ll offer you variety, motivation and fun workout options to add to your fitness routine.
Get a personal trainer
Find yourself a personal trainer with a personality that you really gel with. Somebody who really gets you, pushes you to your limits, and makes the whole fitness process fun for you. Working one-on-one with a personal trainer offers an intensity that you can’t get from other workouts, you’ll really feel the gains. If you find the “right” one for you, you’ll definitely look forward to your training sessions with them.
