Making your workout fun
As I’ve said before, it’s important to enjoy working out, this will make getting those. You may or may not enjoy working out for the sake of working out. You may just want to add a little more variety in your workout. Regardless, there are lots of fun activities that tone a lot of muscles while burning fat.
Some of my favorites are…
- Indoor Rock Climbing/Bouldering
- Mountain Biking
And the list goes on, think of activities that sound like fun, and may be able to be counted as a workout, then do it. You’ll enjoy it more if you can find a buddy to do it with you, but if none of your friends want to, you can go to MeetUp.com to find groups in your area to do the things you’re interested in doing with you. You can make new friends, tone your body, and have fun. Don’t fear rejection or that people wouldn’t want you to go and be a “noob”, many of the groups are targeted towards beginners because getting into a sport by yourself can be hard. If you are too worried about people being impatient with you, go ahead and contact the leader of the group and ask what their stance is on beginners? Explain you’d like to get into it but you don’t know anybody interested. They’ll most likely be more than glad to help.
Once again, this is only just a few of the possible activities, there are of course things look soccer, baseball, basketball, and football, but I felt it unnecessary to list the obvious. If those interest you, do them, have fun with them. Try to do at least 1-2 activities a week, in addition to regular workouts.
If anybody has any suggestions for other activities, leave them in the comments below.
Have fun and stay motivated.
