Getting fit can be hard work and it is sometimes hard to stay motivated if you’re doing the same exercises each time you work out and especially if you are working out alone. It is not just your mind that gets bored, your body does too. Doing the same kind of work out or working the same muscle groups every time you exercise means that your body gets used to the routine making it far less effective. So What The Dealy Yo!? How about some other ways to mix up your regular fitness plan:
Well, the clue is in the name. Fusion classes simply combine two or more forms of exercise into one workout. They often have funny sounding names like Yogalates (a combination of Yoga and Pilates) or Piloxing (a combination of Pilates and boxing).
These Fusion classes can actually be a lot of fun and a great work out for your body; working it in ways that no regular workout can. The fusion of two or more different forms of exercise helps keep you interested so you can say good bye to boredom.
Dancing as a form of exercise has been a popular trend since the ‘80s and shows no sign of losing its plentiful following of enthusiasts. Many famous dancers and performers have released their own dance videos, which have been very popular amongst those wanting a unique form of cardio. There are now hundreds of videos available online as well as games available for consoles like the Nintendo Wii so there’s no excuse for not giving it a go.
Boot camps began to rise in popularity a few years ago and over the last couple of years, they have become something of a craze. There are now boot camps in just about every city across the country, and thousands of people have broken out from their mundane gym routine to enjoy a really effective workout in the great outdoors.
Boot camp workouts can involve pretty much every type of training from cardio and stamina training to work on strength and endurance. Boot camp is a great, budget friendly alternative to getting a personal trainer as you get the motivational leadership from the boot camp trainer as well as encouragement from others taking part in the class.
