I love to workout but I know that’s just not true for everyone. I have some friends who hate it and do it just to do it, but if I didn’t love it I don’t think I would have stuck with it. Sometimes all it takes is a fitness routine refresh! So today I want to share 5 ways to refresh your fitness routine!

5 Ways To Refresh Your Fitness Routine

  1. Try a new class: Nothing is more fun and scary than a new workout class! I love trying them out but I know they can be a bit intimidating. My biggest tip for this is to do your research and go early! I always show up to a new class/studio 20 mins early. You usually have to sign a waver and someone can show you the equipment and give you a tour. It really takes the nervousness away.
  2. Have a friend to workout with: Another great thing if you are intimidated or if you just need to refresh your fitness routine is to have a friend workout with you! I personally like to workout alone but for classes I love having friends come! It’s so fun to have someone to commiserate with if it’s tough or just hang out with!
  3. Buy a new outfit: Nothing like buying a workout outfit that makes you feel incredible right? Go treat yourself to a new look! It doesn’t have to be expensive just has to make you feel great!
  4. Take a different path… literally: If you are a runner try a new trail or path! Or even for walking! Sometimes a change of scenery and a new challenge gives you all the refresh you need.
  5. Invest: In yourself! Maybe some new sneakers or a cool bike like the Pelaton so you can do your workouts at home! Or maybe it’s a membership to a gym or fitness studio! But if you are serious about working out these are great things to invest in.

I hope you found these ways to refresh your fitness routine helpful! What do you do to refresh yours?

      These are such good tips! Trying out a new class always inspired me to get moving again. I’ll also do the different path thing when I’m feeling a little burnt out from running.

      I love these ways to refresh a fitness routine. I have found by running a new route or in a new place I feel more energized and excited by my workout. I also think finding some new music helps too — that or sometimes just having nothing to listen to helps refresh the workout too. 🙂

      I just got a bike for my birthday a couple of months ago and it’s motivated me to ride with my son to school since then rather than dropping him off in the car. I also enjoy classes so was disappointed when they stopped the ones in my community since there wasn’t enough participation.

      I think having an accountability partner helps a lot to keep us motivated to exercise. I haven’t been exercising lately so I will take your advice and try to get back on track.

      When I get bored of my fitness routine I usually buy a new outfit and take a new class. It really gets me back in the mood to keep going!

      All of these are some really great ideas! I love that you have mentioned how to spice things up in your routine.

      I have always found short breaks to work really well. If I am not feeling it, I stop for a few days, and then am enthused once again!

      Mine shifts regularly with the seasons anyway (hard to road bike in the winter when it’s dark and cold and snowy!). But I do like trying different classes every so often to mix things up!

    11. Marysa

      I love these ideas! I really do agree that changing things up helps breathe life into an old routine. I definitely need to get back into the swing of things and need to get out of my workout rut!

      These are pretty awesome suggestions! I like working out NOW, but I didn’t one year ago. Well, that might seem strange said like that, the thing is I was so OUT of shape, to the point that sitting on the floor (and getting up later) would be a physical challenge for me. I was grumpy and everything seemed a mountain! I seriously lacked energy and strength, which made everything so difficult and I hated it.
      But, stubborn as I am, I didn’t quit. I kept trying until I trained my body enough to have more strength. now everything is easier, I put myself more difficult challenges every month and I LOVE it! I love to raise up the bar on me!!
