Everyone knows exercise is important. But like most people, you may always have a reason why this is not possible. The most common alibi is you don’t have time. Or you really don’t like working out in a gym. Today, there are so many ways to get active.
Whether you have no gym budget or just easily get bored with your routine. There is a fitness routine that suits you.
Some people really hate going to the gym. As long as you get moving, you can still reap the fitness benefits of a gym membership. There’s lots of activities you can do outdoors. Hiking, biking and walking are some examples. You can also bring your workout regimen to the park. You can use your body weight for weight training exercises. Squats, lunges, push ups and crunches can be performed anywhere.
For others, working out is a time to socialize. If you’re one of them, dancing is for you. Spinning can be too intense. You can try Zumba, swing, hip hop or ballroom dancing. If you don’t like dancing, you can join a biking or a running club.
No time for the gym? No problem. You can do your workouts right at your desk. You can do triceps dips on your chair during lunch break. Invest in some resistance bands and do bicep curls and triceps extensions. You can even do some push ups if you can find some space. Doing combination moves like squats and bicep curls can save more time.
If you can’t afford a gym membership, don’t fret. Exercises can be easily performed at home. Buy resistance bands, dumbbells, maybe a stability ball. Browse the internet for instructions on how to execute exercise moves properly.
If you need a challenge, sign up for a marathon event or a bodybuilding show if you’re into weight training. Set big goals for yourself. Then break it down into smaller ones. Getting bored with your workout is a common complaint.
Try varying your workouts every 6 to 8 weeks. Or try the elliptical, the treadmill and circuit training for 15 minutes each. Join a group workout next. The possibilities are endless. The point is to get moving.
Exercise need not be confined to the four walls of the gym. Get exercise out of the gym and take it to a hiking trail. Or take it for a whirl on the dance floor. You can take it home with you or even bring it with you to the office. There are so many choices as long as you make exercise a priority.
