How To Get Motivated to Exercise
Making Fitness Fun
It’s one thing to resolve to get fit, but it’s another exercise with fun. However, there are things you can do to make exercising fun. Here are three fun ways to make fitness fun again and shake up that workout routine. This does not mean you will completely change your exercise activities; it could be that you replace a long run with an interval sessions.
Change your routine every few weeks:
Exercise doesn’t have to involve endless hours indoors in the gym. Make use of different locations such as exercising outdoors when the weather is good (or bad if you are brave). Go for a run off-road, enjoy a good long hike or bike ride, an exercise in your own back garden, or if you can’t pull yourself away from the TV, you could even exercise while watching your favorite TV shows. A change of scene acts as a distraction, so you won’t even notice how hard you are working.
Listen to music while your workout:
These days, there are loads of videos (many of them free) that can teach you everything from belly dancing to Bollywood moves. It’s great fun, and you’ll work up a real sweat. Put together a playlist of your top tunes in order to give you the boost you need during a workout. Listening to music while you exercise is a great distraction and makes you less aware of the exertion you are under while exercising. A study from Brunel University identified that listening to music can boost exercise endurance as well as perceived enjoyment of it. In addition, music during a workout can reduce the perception of how hard you are working for moderate exercisers.
Take a group class:
Exercise can be a grind, especially when you are doing something that you really don’t like, and doing it alone. If going to the gym and knocking out rep after rep is just not working for you then why not find an exercise method and group that appeals to you. Exercise doesn’t have to be based around gym workout activities, so why look for alternatives such as a fitness class or even join a team to play a specific sport. Consider what your goals are — whether it improves fitness, to compete, gain competence in a pursuit, or just for fun. Try as many different ways of exercising as possible so that you find one that you are actually looking forward to doing.
