How to Make Working Out Fun!

Often times we may lose sight of our fitness goals because we don’t enjoy the workouts. All workouts don’t fit everyone, and that’s okay! Below I am going to give you some times for how to make your workouts fun for you.

  1. Find an activity you enjoy. While the gym is an amazing place to workout (and also the most common), it may not be for everyone. Amazing workouts can happen in many locations. If you prefer being outdoors try going for a walk or run outside. You can also get a great HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout outside. Other activities include boxing, swimming, playing a sport, yoga, pilates, Zumba, water aerobics, cycling, and many others!
  2. Exercise with friends. Working out with friends, or a group, can help give you extra motivation, and the extra push you may need. Workout buddies help to keep us accountable. stay consistent, give us motivation to try new exercises, and it helps to keep workouts fun!
  3. Set Goals. Setting goals help you stay on track, and they also give you motivation when you see them accomplished. Set small goals for yourself, write them down, and revisit them weekly. Achieving your goals shows consistency and dedication. These are two things that show you are going in the right direction!
  4. Try New Activities. After a while workouts can seem too routine, and you’ll find yourself losing the excitement of exercising. This means it’s time to switch things up! Try that new exercise that has caught your attention (I’ve been eyeing aerial yoga myself)! Getting out of your comfort zone and doing something new can help you regain that zeal you once had to stay consistent on your health and fitness journey.
  5. Reward yourself. Don’t expect perfection with your fitness goals. Work towards consistency. There will be days where you don’t want to workout, and/or your diet isn’t perfect, and that is perfectly fine! We all have those days. Be consistent. Consistency will help keep your stress down on this journey and it will also cause you to notice the small successes along the way. Reward yourself for those! Celebrate along the course and it will keep you going!

Now go enjoy your workouts!

“Be consistent.”
