6 WAYS TO PUT FUN INTO YOUR FITNESS PLAN

Max Bupa

18 December 2019

We all start an exercise regime with full enthusiasm but after a few months lose the motivation to carry on.

Are we not enjoying ourselves? After all, running on the treadmill can seem tedious after a while.

However, just doing things a little differently can add that spark to your fitness routine. Here are some things which you can do to add a little zing to your workout:

 

DON’T GO SOLO
 

Working out alone can make things a little dull out there. What you need is a gym buddy or a partner to add some flavor to your workout. A partner in the gym can assist you in various exercises and also give you a free pep talk to motivate you. Also, you can compete with your gym buddy and set new milestones to test your endurance and stamina.

 

DANCE YOUR WAY TO GOOD HEALTH

 

Dancing helps boost your memory, improve flexibility, build great balance and is known to be a great stress buster. Most importantly, s dancing helps you lose weight and get into better shape. There are many dance forms like freestyle, belly dancing, Zumba or even the Bollywood bhangra. So, take your pick, and then move to the groove.

 

FIND YOUR PARTNER IN RHYME AND RHYTHM

 

For some of us, it’s hard to work out on a romantic number. Therefore, always carry your own music and headphones to pump up your workouts. It’s not just music, thanks to the internet, you can tune-up to hundreds of fitness podcasts, which can offer important fitness tips that even your gym instructor might have missed. Crank up the volume and work towards achieving your fitness goals.

 

NEED A NEW SETTING

 

Meeting the same people or seeing the same equipment at the gym, day-in, and day-out? Maybe you need a change in ambiance. So why don’t you move to the outdoors for a few days? It might be the perfect visual change for mind needed. Imagine a jog in the park or hiking through a forest. If you already workout outdoors, it’s important to maybe pick another neighborhood to freshen up your fitness regime.

 

FITNESS APPLIED

 

We know how engaging those gaming consoles can be. Imagine, what if you gamify your fitness experience and stay in shape? The thrill of earning points, completing tasks and competing with others is a great motivator and fun factor to up your fitness goals. That’s one of the reasons why fitness trackers are in these days. Maybe it’s time to strap one on!

 

TAKE A BREAK, HAVE A SNACK

 

Some of us take our fitness and diet way too seriously. Relax, once a while. It’s OK to eat that sinful dessert or that overloaded luscious burger. Take a day out from your gym and go watch a movie with your family or head to a fancy spa and loosen up those aching muscles.
