Spring is the season of new beginnings, it’s also the perfect time to get into shape with summer right around the corner. I’ve always had somewhat of a workout routine, but last fall I started running. I’ve been getting a little bored with it lately and noticed that I wasn’t pushing myself anymore. I decided it was time to make a change and really challenge myself. Hopefully some of the things I’m trying will help you motivate yourself and push through your fitness goals!
1. Push Yourself Further– First up, I signed up for my very first mud run. I’m really excited to get down and dirty and run through the mud and obstacles…but I’m equally as terrified! I really like to run so signing up for a race was a great motivation starter and a way to push myself further than I had been.
2. Mix it Up– I broke up my everyday routine of running by adding in Zumba class once a week. I’ve always loved Zumba, but got so committed to running that I wasn’t doing anything but that. Zumba is the one hour a week that I can dance like a fool and burn some mega calories.
3. Try Something New– I tried a Krav Maga class. I had never even heard of Krav Maga until a few weeks ago. I was really nervous to take the class, but it turned out to be really fun. It took me out of my comfort zone and focused on muscles that I hadn’t been using in my other workouts.
Needless to say, the last few weeks of my workout routine has been anything but boring. I find myself wanting to hit the gym harder everyday to break through all of my goals.
