Working out is not always fun but it is important to make sure you are active. It can be boring to always be going to the gym or doing your home workouts so sometimes I like to switch it up and do an activity that is fun that is not a traditional workout. Each weekend instead of a workout I try to do an active activity that changes up my weekly routine. Some suggestions are listed below!
This is my favorite activity to go do on the weekends. It is a great workout and it feels good to get outside and away from the city.
Go to the Climbing Gym
If you have an indoor climbing gym near you check it out. It is a great workout and can be so much fun. It’s a completely different type of workout.
Go to the Park
Go to the park and play with your kids or just take a brisk walk. A change of scenery and fresh air is always a great break from being in the gym. Some parks even have workout equipment for adults to workout while the kids play.
Dancing is a fun way to burn some calories. Go out dancing with the girls or take a dance class. Stuck at home for the weekend? Turn up the music at home and dance, get your kids involved!
Get out and play a game with the family. Kick ball, soccor, tag football. All great ways to get out and have some fun and burn some calories.
Take the bikes out, you can ride trails, around the neighborhood, at the park. Research your nearest city. A lot of cities have trails made for bike riding that would be safe and off the road. Or if you prefer check out your parks to look for mountain bike paths.
Clean Your Home
Ok, this one may not be exactly fun, but it usually needs done. Turn on your favorite playlist and really get into. A few hours of cleaning can really burn some calories. Add some music you might sing and dance to a little and get a bonus burn.
Go for a Swim
Swimming can be a lot of fun, and is also a great way to burn calories. Take the kids to the pool, or to the lake beach. If the weather isn’t right look for an indoor pool.
Rollerblading or Skating.
This can be a fun activity, look for a nice paved path and take your roller blades and burn some calories. This is also a great activity to do with the family!
There are many ways that you can get in a decent work out and still have fun! These are also great family activities so you can be active and spend some quality time with your family.
