Sometimes dragging yourself to the gym can be, well, a drag. However working out doesn’t mean you have to wipe that smile off your face. If you’re looking to spice up your fitness routine, there are a variety of workouts you can enjoy without stepping foot inside your health club.
Join a team. Playing a sport is a great way to get your heart rate up, burn calories, and have some fun all at the same time. TIP: Don’t forget your mouthguard — the most dental emergencies occur while playing sports.
Take a walk. Walking is the easiest way to stay in shape — it requires minimal effort and you can exercise pretty much anywhere. A fun way to spice up your walking routine is by taking a tour of your city and exploring the sights.
Go for a hike. Grab your sneakers, water, and your workout buddy and enjoy some hiking trails in your area. Hikes are also beneficial on your own; it’s the perfect time to clear your mind and relax.
Turn your tasks into a workout. Want to kill two birds with one stone? Turn your daily and weekly to-do list into a workout routine. For example, every time you clean a counter or brush and floss your teeth, do some push ups or jumping jacks.
