3 Ways to Really Enjoy Your Workout
By Genevieve Cunningham
When it comes to working out, enjoying the process is half the battle. Getting fit and improving your health takes time, and if you don't enjoy what you're doing, you're more likely to give up before ever seeing results. Fortunately, even for those who aren't keen on exercise, there are ways to make the workout more enjoyable. If you would like to truly love your workout time, take a look at these tips to give a try today.
Get Great Music
For many people, music is the ultimate motivation. It pumps you up and gets you excited. The good thing about a workout is that you can choose whatever music you want. As long as you're not in a class, the music choice is completely up to you. Schedule some time for yourself to choose the perfect music. You may be surprised at how much the right music can change the feel of your entire routine.
Get New Gear
If you've been using the same old equipment for a while, it's time to upgrade. If you can afford it, buy new shoes, new clothes, and other new gear that makes you excited. Maybe it's a pedometer. Maybe it's a few fitness apps. Maybe it's the Apple watch. It doesn't matter what you choose as long as you're really going to use it. New gear can make you feel more excited about your workout, which makes it more likely that you'll actually do it and enjoy it, too.
Get a Supportive Group
Friends can make all the difference in the world. If you don't already have fitness minded friends, it's time to make some. Join a class or a group online. Ask some people at the gym if they'd like company. The right company can change the attitude and overall vibe of your exercise routine. And if you choose wisely, your friend group can make your workout feel like barely a workout at all.
Workouts should be challenging, but you don't have to (and shouldn't!) hate every minute. Use these tips to make your workout more fun so that you can enjoy it. The more you learn to love it, the more likely you are to stick with it, and the better health you'll have long-term.
