Make Fitness Fun and You Will Be More Likely To Stick With The Program

Have you made any ambitious goals towards improving your health and fitness for 2017? If you have been to the gym lately, I’m sure you’ve noticed the influx of patrons swarming the machines and packing the group fitness classes. As a group fitness instructor at LA Fitness and Dancing Mami, I have certainly noticed an uptick in attendance since the holidays came to an end.

 
Many people ask what’s the key to improving their fitness level, and my first tip is that you need to be consistent! That means you need to make sure that you sweat every day. That’s right – not just on weekends, and not just when you “have time”.

 
But what if exercising feels like a chore? Here’s my second tip – do something you love. Everyone has their own preference – many people enjoy lifting heavy weights or running 5-10 km. Other people, like myself, love choreography classes. Whether it is cardio kickboxing, Zumba, Hip Hop, or Bootcamp, I love moving my body to the beat of the music!

 
The key to a more active lifestyle is finding an activity that brings you joy. Then, you won’t feel like you’re dragging yourself to the gym – you will be searching for every excuse possible to get there because you’ll be excited to workout! Find creative ways to make exercise fun, and then you won’t have problems with motivation – your biggest problem will be finding more ways to do that activity every day, even twice a day, for the rest of your life.
