How to Make Working out Feel More Fun

 Do you feel as though working out feels like more of a chore than it should be? If this is the case, then you have to understand that you are not alone. So many people are in the same situation as you are but there are things that you can do to try and turn things around for yourself. By making your workouts more fun and by trying to cater them to the schedule you have, you will soon find that you can keep shedding those pounds without too much stress.

Workout with a Close Friend

Think about it, you would not blow off your run at 6am if you knew you had a buddy waiting for you at the park would you? This is why it is a very good idea for you to arrange some workout dates. Not only will this help you to get out of bed in the morning because it will also make your sweat session much more fun too. When you are done with your workout, you can even choose to go out with your friend after to grab a healthy smoothie or even a protein shake. When you do this, you will soon find that it is much easier for you to stay motivated and that you can get way more done too so be mindful of this if you can.

Add some Messages to your Alarms

If you have to set an alarm at 5am so you can get up for your workout, then why not make it a bit more tolerable by adding a label to your phone? Set yourself a nice motivational message and also make sure that you create something that puts a smile on your face every single morning. If you can do this, then you will soon find that those grueling mornings become a bit more bearable.

Get Your Gear Ready the Day Before

If you can, it is a very good idea for you to lay out all of the gear you need, the day before you intend to do your workout. If you can, it is also very wise go to bed in it as this will save you even more time in the morning. If you do this, then you will soon find that you are able to get the result you want out of your morning routine and you don’t have to waste half an hour digging out your running shoes from your wardrobe. The easier you can make your mornings the better.

Sign up with a Class

If you want to make your workouts feel easier, then one thing you can do is try and sign up for a class. There are a ton of dance studios out there that you can sign up with and when you do, you will soon find that it is easier than ever for you to move around without having to drag yourself out for a run. You may even find that it helps you to stay more focused on what matters too, which is having fun while getting the results you are hoping for.

Have Brunch after You’ve Done your Workout

This may sound a bit odd, but if you can create some plans with your friends after you have done your run or your workout then this will make sure that you do those miles. If you tell everyone that you are going to arrive for brunch after your workout, then this helps to ensure that you are accountable, and it also means that you have something good to look forward to as well. If you show up for brunch clearly not having done your workout, then your friends may begin to question why you haven’t put the work in and this can leave you feeling more fired up for next time.

Compete with your Family and Friends

If you have a Fitbit or something else similar, then it is very easy for you to challenge your friends to some kind of activity. You can then see how you are moving compared to your friends and you can even go head-to-head if you want. By doing this you can then make sure that you are able to compete with each other while also working as a team to try and reach a common goal. It will work in your favor, and it will also make it much easier for you to stay motivated in the future when it comes to the goals that you set and the dopamine you get from achieving them.
