If you are bored during your workouts, or you're watching the clock during cardio, try these four tips to boost the fun factor in your workouts!
1. Get outside. Lose the timer on your treadmill, and take your walk or run outside. Enjoy the scenery and fresh air. Set yourself a geographical goal ("I'm going to the park and back") instead of a timed goal. Take a different route and destination each time. and if it rains on you, then you know you can work out even in bad weather - or anytime!
2. Try a completely different type of exercise. Never done yoga, or adult volleyball? Check out your local community centre for options.
3. Create a playlist for your mp3 player that will keep you moving fast and that will take your mind off the work-out. Do a bunch of songs that you've loved forever with a strong beat, and you want to sing along to.
4. Find a work-out buddy who is in better shape than you are (yet). You will work harder and push yourself to where you want to be. So try out these tips and shake up your work-outs!
