How to Make Exercise Fun‏ | Health & Fitness

Making exercise fun is the main key to sticking with it and making a big difference to your body and your life. If you don’t like what you’re doing, then you won’t stick to it and get the results you desire. You might stick to it for a few weeks or even a few months, but eventually the novelty will wear off. Here are some tips to make exercise fun!

Change Your Routine
If you’re doing the same thing day after day, week after week, you’re going to get bored. You need to change your routine! Having a routine is great, because you can see where you’re improving and what you need to put more work into. However, you must change your routine if you want to keep making progress and stop yourself from getting bored. There are routines online, and really cheap guides you can find - some are even free. You have no excuse to keep on doing the same thing.

Challenge Yourself
You need to keep challenging yourself - don’t just go through the motions as you work out. Can you use a heavier weight without compromising your form? Can you sprint a little faster? Take a shorter rest period? Make sure you’re going out of your way to challenge yourself and you’ll find exercise much more enjoyable. Make a note of things you’re improving on too so you can see how far you’re coming!


Only Do it if You Enjoy it
If there’s a form of exercise you truly hate, then don’t do it. I don’t mean an exercise you can’t be bothered to do because it’s difficult, I mean something you don’t like. Maybe you hate spin classes, or swimming bores you. Don’t do it and find something that excites you instead. There will be something out there that you love to do!

Get Dressed Up
Get dressed up to go and work out. Wear co-ordinated outfits. Check out some pretty fabrics for dancewear and make something yourself. You have lots of opportunities to look great while you get fit, so take them!

Do it with a Friend
Sometimes you just need a friend to spur you on and encourage you. When somebody is sweating right next to you and egging you on, exercise can become much more enjoyable. Just make sure you’re both there to work out, not chatter the whole time. Try to leave time for a coffee afterwards if you want to catch up. You should both be as committed as one another to make it work.

Listen to an Amazing Playlist
I love listening to a playlist of motivational songs when I’m exercising. If I’m doing something in the gym alone, I’ll put my headphones in and block the world out. I can really focus this way and get pumped up! There are lots of ready-made playlists you can listen to too, so no need to make one yourself.

Make your workouts fun and you’ll get the results you want in no time!
