Working out should be fun and something you look forward to during your day – NOT something you should dread doing. It's all about flipping your perspective and seeing it as an opportunity to give back to yourself.
Today we wanted to share some fun idea’s with you on different workouts you could try. We’d also like to challenge you to try 1 NEW thing every month. Just 1, but who knows what you’ll discover…
We’d also like to challenge you to try 1 NEW thing every month. Just 1, but who knows what you’ll discover…
1 – Swimming. Most adults haven’t swam since they were a child. Sure you might go for regular dips, but have you actually tried to swim consistently for a set distance?
It's hard work, and a great workout that is kind on your joints, but will still get your heart and lungs pumping. Bonus points for jumping in an ocean pool – exercise, grounding and connecting with mother nature in one? We're in.
2 - Hiking. Most areas have an abundance of gorgeous national parks, or hiking paths, we know in Australia we’re incredibly lucky.
Find a new path you haven’t done before, pack a picnic and get the whole family involved. If your in Sydney, one of my favorites is the Figure 8 Pools in the Royal National Park – the hike back up with certainly have you feeling connected to your thighs!
3 – Cycling. Hire a bike if you don’t own one, and find a cycle path. Again this is something you can do with the family of or friends and make a day of it. Pack a picnic (Healthy of course, we don’t want to undo all of your hard work!) plenty of water and have fun.
4 – Pilates/Yoga. If your usually an HIIT/Bootcamp kind of gal, try the complete opposite and try a Pilates or yoga class with an open mind. Incorporating both high-intensity and low-intensity classes in your routine is the key to a sustainable consistent injury free routine.
5 – Bootcamp/HIIT. On the other hand if you love rolling out your yoga mat, try adding a HIIT or Bootcamp session to your routine, to balance your routine and get your heart and lungs soaring.
6 – Surfing/Paddle boarding. On a beautiful day there’s no better feeling then diving into the crisp cool water with a board. We love both, but if you don’t like waves paddle boarding is for you – you can even stay dry depending on your balance…
Try something different this year, and commit to having fun in your exercise routine, we promise it will make it more enjoyable, sustainable and healthy.
