Are you tired of trying to get fit? Do you find exercise boring, and get little to no results? If you want great results from exercise, the key is to find something that you enjoy doing – something fun! If not, you can hardly expect to stick to it. Here are some fun ways to get your exercise so you can finally enjoy what you’re doing!
Lots of people love Zumba because it’s like a dance lesson and exercise class in one. The music is upbeat and fun, and you can guarantee you’ll have such a laugh while doing it. The more you do it, the better you’ll get at dancing too! Something like this in conjunction with a controlled diet could really help you!
HIIT is definitely the best form of cardio. Instead of spending hours on the treadmill, you do a series of fast and slow intervals for anywhere from 15-30 minutes. You get your heart rate right up, allow it to go back down, and then go again. It’s so much more interesting and fun than steady state, plus, the results are so much better!
You might not look at lifting as a very fun thing to do. But those who try it and get into it do! You’d be surprised at how much fun you can have trying to beat yourself every week. It’s such a good feeling to get new personal bests all the time and watch your body change!
Hiking is a brilliant way to get fit, get some fresh air, and explore! There are so many different hikes you can go on. I recommend buying a book of hikes in your area to see how many you can complete.
Biking can be a lot of fun, even if you’re just making your way around on a town bike. Shinola bicycles are fashionable and work well if you want to do some casual biking. You need to consider your goals and then work out which type of bike would be best for you. Don’t forget your protective equipment.
Aim to improve your swimming technique each time you go and you can have a lot of fun in the water. You can also set up fun challenges, like how many lengths you can complete in an hour.
Crossfit has a bit of everything, so it’s good for overall skills and fitness. After a few classes you’ll be able to do pull ups, proper pushups, and even olympic lifts!
If you prefer to keep fit by playing sports, then badminton could be a good option for you. Of course you’ll need a partner if you want to do this though! You could also try tennis or squash.
You’re bound to develop a love for one of these forms of exercise if you make the effort to keep it up for a couple of weeks. The key to keeping it up is developing good habits! 3 weeks should be long enough. Have fun!
