When it comes to fitness, there is nothing I hate more than performing the same exercise day after day, mindlessly going through the motions, while counting down until it’s all over and you can go home 🙂
Been there, done that, and gave up after two months because well…, its boring! It’s not that I think workouts should be nothing but fun, because I do believe in the “No Pain, No Gain” motto, but do they really have to be that dull? Well, I don’t believe they should!
For me, the key to getting or staying fit is consistency. So in order to be consistent with your workouts, you must find what works best for you! You may not love spending an hour at the gym every day, but than again who said that’s the only way to get in shape? There are all kinds of wonderful activities like hiking, biking, swimming and dancing which will not only get you fit but are also super fun to do!
Currently I alternate between hiking, gym, running and swimming. I try to do something every day, generally aiming for about an hour to an hour and a half of physical activity a day.
Though I certainly enjoy all of the above activities, training outside is probably one of my favourites at the moment!
Last but not least, fitness gear! Sure, a cute new workout outfit is a great motivator. My big three is comfort, breathability and movability. When I work out I want to forget what I’m wearing and concentrate on what it is I am actually doing!:)
What about you guys, what are some of your favourite workouts?
