When you think of getting fit, does the image of struggling through a grueling gym workout come to mind? Do you view fitness as a painful process? Do you imagine that you can only get fit by having a gym instructor shouting in your ear as you painfully huff and puff to get some oxygen in your lungs?
Getting fit doesn’t have to be painful, dull, boring or repetitive. You can shake things up and try different activities to get to your fitness goals. You can try a gym workout class such as Zumba or kick boxing to get your heart pumping while you have fun.
Want to stay motivated? Get a workout partner. They will keep you accountable and help you stay active. It’s easier to achieve anything when you have someone in the trenches with you, cheering you on and going through the same hurdles as you.
You don’t have to hit the gym to get and stay fit. There are many fun activities that will get your heart pumping and help you achieve your goals. Hop on a bike and ride through your Local Park or trail. Go for a hike with a group of friends. Hit the pool and go for a few laps for a low impact full body workout. The possibilities are endless. You only need to be creative.
