Here are 7 great exercise ideas that take the “work” out of workouts!
1. Run with your pet – or borrow somebody else’s!
Running and walking with man’s best friend usually incorporated sprints, balancing, and lots of squats! (For pets, eye contact, and treats!)
My puppy Atlas and I love to run together. He’s up to about 3 miles – but when we walk we can go for over an hour!
You’ll find that the health of the owner and the health of the pet often coincide. What’s beautiful about dogs is that they force you to get consistent exercise every day… or else they’ll act out.
2. Dance like nobody’s watching…
Put on music that makes you want to get your groove on and then look at yourself dance in the mirror.
This might seem silly at first – but you can get an incredible ab workout when you focus on moving your core.
Latino and Raggaeton are incredible for dancing – but I have friends who maintain killer abs with belly dancing, too.
3. Do something that would make your mother blush…
I can’t believe how many friends have taken up poll dancing – even modest, otherwise shy women… and men!
Pole classes incorporate spins, climbs, and dance for an ‘interval’ type workout- which is widely acknowledged as one of the very best ways to burn fat!
Pole dancing combines two critical workouts that are incredibly difficult to combine; isotonic and isometric.
You get isotonic workouts because you contract muscles through controlled movement. Lifting weights… doing pushups… or doing a pole spin? Take your pick!
Isometric movements involve pushing your muscles against a solid object while remaining frozen in one position.
Yes, Paintball. Many of my friends looking to get in shape have recently taken up paintball in order to get in shape.
It’s incredible how fat melts off your body when you’re running around dodging paint balls and chasing people.
You’ll find that paintball attracts people of all ages who want to run around, have fun, and get an amazing workout in the process.
Moreover, when stalking your target – you maintain a squat position that’s incredible to workout you core and thighs.
Plus – you can bring your whole family!
I’m signed up to join a big group next weekend. Why don’t you join me and find a paintball field near you? Let me know how you like it!
5. Go explore…
If you want to incorporate exercise into your day in a really fun way, go explore something!
Maybe there’s an art museum two miles from your house. Don’t cab it or drive – walk!
Or perhaps you can use an app to find restaurants that are one to two miles from your home that you’d like to try.
Find 3 or 4 things you’d like to do this week that are one or two miles from home and plan on walking there instead of driving.
5. Create family time…
I can’t believe how kids play – it seems like they’ll never tire!
I recently went to a child’s birthday party at a children’s museum and I couldn’t believe how much I ran, jumped, and lifted thirty to forty pound munchkins.
7. Breeze through errands…
When you find that your calendar doesn’t allow for much wiggle room – here’s a fun trick.
Go to a big shopping area where you can spend your lunch hour or some time after work speed-walking your errands.
Maybe your butcher is a ten minute walk from the electronics store and fifteen minutes from the pharmacy.
Write down all the ‘things’ you need to get done this week and then find a place where you can kick off your heels and put on some trainers and burn calories while you get it all done!
If you’re having a hard time getting on the treadmill (who doesn’t?), choose a few of these FUN ways to workout this week.
You can arrange your entire social calendar around dog walking, dancing, visiting families, and even taking a class.
Another habit you can commit to TODAY is drinking 2 cups of Okuma’s Wu-Long Slimming Tea every day.
This one little habit could make a huge difference in how you look… and feel!
