Can you believe it’s been 6 months since you were putting together your health and fitness plan? By now you might be getting a little bored with your workout. Guess, what? It happens to all of us.
Last year, I made changes to my routine, and it was just what I needed. Not only did I need a new challenge, but I wanted different results. At this stage of life I know that I can’t go into cruise control and expect everything to keep bouncing back into place. Can you relate?
So, here are 3 things that I did.
Added more strength training to my routine. If your workout needs a change up, adding weights, may be exactly what you need. There are numerous benefits to strength training that makes this a total win for even better results.
Participated in more Group Fitness Classes. – As a certified group fitness instructor, I love the opportunity to motivate others to get moving and be active. However, being a participant in a class keeps me challenged and pushes me to be better.
Set higher expectations for myself. I didn’t just focus on the time of the workout. I did things like increase the number of repetitions and the weight of my dumb bells. When I run on the treadmill, I aim for faster speed intervals. Ultimately, I began to maximize my exercise time frame. I mean, why not make the most of the time you have, right?
Is it time for you to change things up when it comes to exercise?
