10 Ways to Make Fitness Fun

I don't know about you, but I'm lazy by nature. Sure, there are those out there who just take to exercise, any exercise. And you'd think, working in the fitness industry, I'd be one such soul. No such luck. If it's not fun, I've got Boston Legal on TiVo and that's going to take priority.

Because of this, when I was in my mid-twenties and decided to turn my life around, the eating part was easy—but the getting-in-shape part? Oy vey! After a few false starts, I discovered the trick, ultimately, was to make working out fun. Once that happened, it all fell into place.

How'd I do it? Well, here are a few ways. Enjoy!

  1. Try something newTry something new. Sure, for best results, Power 90 requires 90 days, but after those three months, go do something else! After a fitness boot camp like that, you'll be amazed at the things you can now do - jog, rock climb, yoga, rollerblade, you name it. Not only will this motivate you, but you'll be cross training, working your muscles in new ways to prevent plateaus and increase results!
  2. Play a sportPlay a sport. You'll see a lot of the benefits of number 1, plus you'll get the camaraderie of playing on a team. Furthermore, you armchair quarterbacks can finally put your money where your mouth is. If you're concerned that you'll make a fool of yourself, don't stress. Check with your local town hall or YMCA for sports classes and leagues filled with people at your level.
  3. Get a buddyGet a buddy. Okay, so rugby might be a little intimidating. Why not settle for a workout buddy? It's a lot easier to try new things as a team. Start with walking and go up from there. Try tennis, hopscotch, anything. My personal favorite is grabbing an amigo and hitting the rock climbing gym. It sounds a lot scarier than it is. Believe it or not, you'll be scaling walls after as little as 30 minutes of training.
  4. Get the whole family involvedGet the whole family involved. For some of us, our exercise time conflicts with family time - so mix the two. Go hiking, skiing, or set up a little Sunday touch football. Kids have tons of energy. Use that to your advantage!


  5. Go dancingGo dancing. Single? Hate sports? Hit the dance floor. Dancing is a great aerobic exercise because it's easy to get lost in the music and spend hours shaking your thing.



  6. Use an MP3 playerUse an MP3 player. Same thing. Get one, plug in your favorite tunes and even the most repetitious chore becomes a rockin' good time.




  7. Bedroom athleticsBedroom athletics. Okay, this is a family company, so here's a tough one to talk about. Suffice it to say two things. First, what goes on behind closed doors can burn tons of calories. Second, the more imagination you use, the harder you work. 'Nuff said.


  8. Buy some fitness clothingShop it up. On to another vice. You're working hard and your body's getting ripped. Time to reap the rewards and support the economy, all at once. Ladies, low-ride jeans and midriff tops aren't just for Jennifer Aniston. Guys, put the XXXL Hawaiian shirt away. It's time for a fitted tee.

  9. Fitness vacationsFitness vacations. The conventional wisdom is that time off is meant for lounging. Forgetaboutit! Go mountain biking in Moab! Go surfing in Fiji! Go camping! Not the outdoors type? Take a cruise and sign up for every activity you can! Or head to a beautiful location for a weekend fitness camp.

  10. Share your enthusiamShare your wisdom. Odds are, you know more about fitness than you think you do. Guiding other people through the journey can be super rewarding. Who knows? It might even lead to a career in the fitness industry. But wait a minute. That would be about having fun in your job, and that's an article for another time . . .
