Bored? Try Something New!

Getting fit isn’t always that much fun. It can be a lot of tedium as you work toward the body you would like to have.

While a good exercise routine can help you to get fit, varying it is a very good idea. It can help you avoid the boredom that makes it easier to quit working out.

Varying your workout can be tricky. You don’t want to change to something that will bore you more and you don’t want to go to something so easy that you aren’t challenging yourself.

Sometimes it can be as simple as going out and doing something fun and active. Take a hike. Swim in the ocean when the weather is warm enough. Pick a new class at the gym. Do your routine in reverse order… except the warmup part, of course. Change the music you workout to, or add music if you haven’t had it in the past.

There’s no reason to stay bored with your workouts. There’s much more to getting exercise than doing a routine at the gym.
