B∅RED w/ Excercis∃? Mix It upΛ

Exercise is necessary for a healthy mind and body. You know what it feels like to get BORED! Falling into the same routine of exercise not only bores you mentally it also stops you from making any fitness/weight loss achievements.

Here are some tips that will help you stay out of the exercise rut.

1. Mix up your routine: rotate between different types of cardio, like swimming, dancing, rock climbing, cycling. You don't have to always stick to the treadmill or elliptical. Add some intervals or hills into your routine. Not only will you challenge yourself, you will also stay engaged.

2. Join a team. Playing a sport like volleyball, basketball, tennis, soccer, lacrosse, etc..will give you an awesome workout, fun interaction and good competitive drive.


3. Extend the invitation. Invite a friend to workout with you. Having the company will allow you to mix up the routine while you chat away during the workout.

4. Try a new class. Search your local gym and community centers for classes that will mix up your routine. Give a yoga, Pilate's, kickboxing, circuit training, spin, or dance class a try. It will be a nice break from your usual routine.

5. Take a chill pill. Remember to give yourself time to rest and recover. If you push to hard, you will burn yourself out and not have the motivation and drive. This can come across as boredom. 9 times out of 10, you just need to take a day or two off to recover from the stress. Give it a try.
