How To Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone: Trying New Forms Of Exercise
You might have reached a time in your life, where exercise has become part of your weekly routine and that is brilliant! All of your friends and family comment on how fit, healthy and strong you are. However, do you often find yourselves bored at the gym, or perhaps you have recently hit a plateau? Do you find yourself using the same machines or performing the same cardio workout on the treadmill week after week? Don’t worry, this is perfectly normal! Most people get comfortable following the same routine and can find it difficult making changes. Trying out a new exercise can be fun, help you to achieve better results, boost your confidence and may even end up with you forming new friendships.
Hire A Personal Trainer
Hiring a personal trainer is both a fun and helpful experience, that will help you gain new insight into your workouts. They can also be extremely motivating. Just the thought of someone watching you exercise, can make you work that little bit harder. Whilst you stay focused on each exercise, your trainer will make sure that you are using the correct form. Using the services of a personal trainer is a great way to breathe new life into your routine and to help you break through a plateau.
Try Taking A Class
There are so many exercise classes to choose from including: Boxercise, Pilates, Yoga, core classes, TRX classes and spinning. Many gyms offer these classes as part of your membership. If you have any questions regarding a class, try asking at the front reception desk of your gym. Alternatively, if you’re not bothered about extra costs, you could ditch your local gym and find a class nearby. A lot of places include a free class to start with or discount offers.
With summer on our doorstep, perhaps it’s time to switch to exercising outdoors? If your regular routine includes pounding away on the treadmill, you’ll find it refreshing running out in the open air. It’s amazing what a change of scenery can do for your motivation and ultimately your fitness goals.
