Is Your Exercise Routine Boring? Switch It Up!

I’m coming to the end of my 4th 30 day challenge and I decided that I am going to try something different for my 5th challenge starting next week. I have been a little hesitant about getting a gym membership at a local gym because in the past I would spend a lot of money on a membership but I would never show up. Most of the time it was because I was not motivated completely about working out but today I am completely different. I am oozing with motivation & passion about working out on a consistent basis! I know “this” time I will get full use of my membership and then some! Is your workout getting boring? Do you need a different environment or new scenery? Well my dear switch it up!

Change the place you are working out at and maybe go outside and walk, jog & run instead of going to the gym. Since we are in the fall season take advantage of the mild days we have ahead of us and get some Vitamin D from the sun while you are out there! If you have access to a gym with a swimming pool go get some laps in or go out on a basketball court & get a game going. There are plenty of group exercise classes that are available from Zumba to Pilates, Abs, Weights or a Cycling class. There are plenty of opportunities out here in order for you to make your workout regimen more exciting. Or if you want to workout at home or on your own Get-Fit Guy has a lot of great ideas for taking your workout to the next level. Go to

I’m looking forward to my “Switch Up” to Planet Fitness, I am sure it will be a good change. They have resistance training equipment, arc trainers, elliptical trainers and treadmills beyond measure. They even have several circuit training sections that I am going to get involved in. There is also a personal trainer on deck to help you by creating a specific workout plan for you based on your goals. The other thing I am excited about with this Planet Fitness membership is that I can bring a guest with me every time I work out! How awesome is that? I give Planet Fitness a thumbs up for that and I look forward to inviting several of the people on my next 30 Day challenge to come workout with me for free!

Let’s Go!
