It is time you spice things up a little, and make new changes for good, such as opting for outdoor fitness and music. Waking up every morning to hit the same old place to work out eventually doesn’t seem so thrilling. You may be noticing your motivation dying down or simply experiencing a strong urge to withdraw. Whatever your reason, know that you have come so far only to go ahead, and not tumble down to the starting point.
If you don’t already, now is the best time ever to incorporate music into your workout routine. To begin with, music instantly lights up your mood, and the right beat gets that adrenaline pumping.
It helps you push yourself to your max by matching your power, intensity and speed for any workout program. Create a different playlist for every exercise, turn the volume up, and notice how good and satisfied you feel.
Enclosed, sweat-smelling gyms are becoming too much of a bore for you? It is time you go for outdoor fitness in the fresh air and under the brightly lit, open sky. Trade you treadmill for terrain by walking or running outside to help activate more of your lower body muscles, burning calories and sculpting sexy legs. Not only will you be getting effective exercise but also a dose of crisp air to help your insides stay fresh and healthy.
Skipping rope out in the open is another highly skilled workout on its own that will not only bolster your coordination skills but also help you sweat off pounds without you realizing it. If you are looking for something more calming, try practicing yoga on the grass and reconnect with your soul. Unlike a concrete floor, a grassy turf will be more malleable, allowing your toes and feet to sink further and improve your balance.
For fun outdoor fitness, grab your music player and go cycling. It keeps your legs in perfect shape, improves blood circulation, and you tend to drink a lot of water which helps to flush out the toxins from your body, thus improving your health too. Another fun way to get fit indoors and outdoors is through Zumba. Blare your stereo, and just dance. You could invite some friends and family members, and create your own personalized Zumba classes under the sky.
Lastly, and this is probably something everyone will put up their hand for, is sports. Sport is not just for recreation. It can be perfect for exercising each and every part of your body. You name it: heart, lungs, abdomen, legs, hands, chest, and mind too. It exercises every part with such perfection that it beats even the best highly dedicated training exercise for each part, hands down. You can play soccer, volleyball, to many other challenging ones, like rowing and mountain climbing. It’s also one of the best ways to get moving (our lazy bodies) in winter.
