Have Fun Exercising

Stop thinking of exercising as a chore that must be done and have fun doing it. The more fun you have exercising the more likely you are to keep doing it.  

That?s how you will lose belly fat and develop healthy workout habits that will keep you healthy throughout your life.

 

Fun exercise?

There really is such a thing as fun exercise. You just have to find out what it is that you like to do.

Try new sports and activities to find out what exercise you really enjoy. If you used to participate in some sports as a child why not try joining a sports team or league now to see if you still enjoy that sport?  

Or if you always wanted to ride horses or take up running do it now!  

There?s no time like the present.

Start going for weekend hikes to clear your head and get back to nature. Sign up for a yoga class. Or try a dance class.  

There are hundreds of new activities that you can try.

Join a gym

If you want to try some new exercises all in the same place consider joining a gym.

Gyms offer self-guided workouts, weights, fun classes, and even some sports leagues and swimming

You will be able to find a new activity to do every night of the week. That is what will keep exercising fun.  

Join as a family and you can participate in family sports together as a family activity. Many gyms offer discounts based on where you work. You also may qualify for a bonus from your company for joining a gym.

 

Exercise can be fun!

If you?re still having trouble seeing exercise as anything but a chore stop thinking of exercise as something that you have to do for a certain period of time or in a certain place.

Stop tracking calories burned or worrying about how many miles you logged. Go back to the basics.

Go do some of these activities that are still exercise, but will bring the fun back to your workouts: 

  • Take your kids ice-skating
  • Go for a moonlight walk with your spouse
  • Go to the beach and swim.
  • Put on some music and dance around the house in your PJs.
  • Take a bike ride on a sunny afternoon
  • Do some gardening.
  • Hike in a local park.
  • Walk around the city you live in and pretend you?ve never been there before.
  • Join a hula-hooping circle at a local park.
  • Take up belly dancing
