Five Ways to Change Up Your Workout Routine

It is easy to get in the same ol’ workout routine. However, it’s good change up your workouts to challenge yourself in a new way and work different parts of your body! Whether it be trying a new class or taking a different route on your run, here are five ways to “spice” up your usual workout.

1. Listen to different music
I always finds this helps me refresh! Music can motivate you in tons of ways during your workout, and changing your music can help you find what is best for you.

Water: a necessity 🙂

2. Find a new route for your run
For me, it gets boring quickly & easily if I always go on the same route. Therefore, I like to change the route I go, even if I run the same distance.

Grass + yesterday’s rain = very, very muddy shoes

3. Try a class you haven’t done before
Whether this is spinning, zumba, barre, kickboxing, or even werq, new classes are always fun. They show you that a workout does not always have to be running or playing a sport! Plus, they allow you to work different parts of your body.

4. Change your workout buddy
If you always work out alone, try going with someone else! If you always go with other people, try going by yourself. Also try going with different people! This challenges you in a new way, and you can see the impact that others can have on your workout.

Post-run, we are feeling good!

5. Mix up between cardio and lifting
More often than not it is good to have a variety of cardio and lifting. Even if one is definitely more of a strength or goal of yours, trying something else is a different way to push yourself. Make cardio and lifting part of your workout routine!
