Recovering from a cold? Just get back from vacation? Here are four ways to renew your love of fitness!
Kickstart #1: Take a Class
My yoga class changed my life. So did my kickboxing class and my ballroom dancing class and my Zumba class. Taking a fitness class allows you to learn something new and broaden your fitness horizons. In some cases, you might find something you’re really passionate about within the fitness realm! For instance, I’m competing in my very first ballroom dance competition this month for Rumba, Salsa, Cha-Cha, and Waltz.
Even if you can’t afford a class, there are some great workout DVDs out there!
Kickstart #2: Take it Outside
Kick it oldschool and take your fitness outdoors. Take your yoga mat to the beach, go mountain biking, go running by a pier… just get outside! Not only is the vitamin D you get from soaking up the sun important for metabolic functions, but vitamin D has also been proven to make you feel happier!
Kickstart #3: Find a Workout Buddy
Train for a half marathon with a friend, or grab your significant other and go for a run. Start up a sand volleyball game, learn how to surf… find a fitness activity to do with your friends, and it’ll be as if you took the “work” out of workout and put the “fun” into “fitnes– okay scratch that second pun attempt. Just trust me on this one, fitness is better with friends!
Kickstart #4: Use a Fitness App
Run from Zombies, get paid to go to the gym– there are so many great fitness apps out there to spice up your fitness life! Stay tuned for a detailed list on my favorite apps!
