Putting Fun Into Fitness

From eDiets - The online diet, fitness, and healthy living resource

You already know that a regular exercise routine will work wonders for your weight loss efforts. But if you skip exercise sessions because you’re bored or it feels like a chore, remember: working out doesn’t have to feel like work.

In fact, if you choose activities you enjoy, getting fit can actually be (gulp) fun! How do you head from ho-hum to get-up-and-go? It's easy: just do what you like! Instead of vegging out in front of the tube, make a list of physical activities you enjoy... or think you might enjoy. Then, go out there and give it a shot!

Some Fit-and-Fun Suggestions:

  • Add Some Entertainment. Even an activity that seems stale can be freshened up with some interesting distractions. Try listening to music or books on tape while you walk. Watch television, read a magazine or an engrossing book while plodding along on a stationary bike or treadmill. Time will fly when your mind is elsewhere.

  • Join A Walking Group. Exercising with others can keep boredom at bay. Chances are if you look in your local paper or ask around the neighborhood, there's a walking club near you, perhaps even one that meets at your local mall. Shopping and talking while exercising -- what could be more fun than that?

  • Take A Lesson. If you're anxious about trying a new activity, look into taking a few lessons and see if it's something you enjoy. If you find out it's not for you, simply cross it off the list and move on.

  • Test Out A New Cardio Machine. If you belong to a health club, consider trying something other than the ever-so-popular treadmills and elliptical machines. Instead, hop onto one of the lonelier pieces of equipment, such as a rowing or ski machine. You just may find another activity you enjoy, plus you won't have to wait in line!

  • Rent Some Fitness Videos. There are so many fitness videos out there these days that there has to be at least one or two that you would enjoy. Why not take a trip to your local video store and see if there's an exercise tape (or DVD) that catches your eye? Just be sure to select a video that matches your current fitness level.

  • Play With Your Pooch. Rover would love an extra run, so the next time you go for a walk, make it a long one -- and try picking up the speed! Remember, your dog needs exercise just as much as you do, so you'll both benefit.
