Enjoy the great outdoors
The clocks have gone forward which means plenty of lighter evenings and bright early mornings too. You can’t use the old excuse that it’s dark when you get home from work and your body just needs to sleep. This is the perfect time of year to get out and about, enjoying the great outdoors. Swap the gym for the nearby fields and walking tracks and you’ll start to feel amazing. Various studies have shown that exercising in a natural environment has more benefits than working out indoors.
There are so many workouts you can do outdoors – jogging, cycling and hiking to name a few. Head to a tennis court, or use the children’s playground as your gym equipment to do pull ups and balances. It’s time to take advantage of the warmer weather.
Try a new fitness class
Perhaps spinning is getting boring or you’ve never actually found a fitness class that you enjoy. Now is the time to try something new! One of the latest crazes is working out on a trampoline, which can actually make working out fun. Adult fitness classes at Rush UK trampoline park include discocise, an energetic dance based class, and Rush Bootcamp which fuses basic trampoline exercises with weights and intense workouts to increase stamina.
Join a sports team
For many people, exercising alone is demotivating and dull. The best way to counteract this is either find a workout buddy, or start playing sports. The competitive spirit will have you pushing yourself in no time! Look up your local teams and there is bound to be something you’d like to try. Even if you know you’re not up to the standard of playing matches, you should be able to train with the team until you feel ready to compete.
