Fun Ways To Get Your Body Moving

It’s the time of year for fitness and nutrition industries to boom, and it’s vital that if you want to be a part of that this time, you find something fun to do. Exercise can be seriously boring, but if you can find one that gets your body moving and gives you that feeling of joy at the same time, it’s a good idea.

Fitness should be fun and that means finding exactly what you need that makes you lose the weight you want to lose. For example, there is a lot to be said for the roller skates vs inline skates for exercise debate! Finding a fun way to exercise is important if you want to get moving but you don't enjoy it in the first place. Anyone can lose weight or tone up better but it’s a faster and easier process if the exercise is fun. So, let’s take a look at some of the ways that you can get your body moving while you have fun with it.

  1. Get out of the house. Not all exercise has to be done in the gym or in the home. You can get out of the house and into nature and it changes exercise into a simple stroll in the local parks and forests. You don't have to run, or even jog if you don't want to. Bring water, bring a hat and go and enjoy the sunshine. Even better? If you can get to a beach and play ‘keep away’ with the waves.
  2. Get on your bicycle. Cycling can be so much fun when you are out there in the world and not stuck in the four walls of a gym. If yours has been collecting dust, you need to see whether or not you can jump on it after a good clean and tackle a few of the trails out there. Biking is a great way to stay healthy and move your body and it’s much faster than walking. You could even switch your commute to cycling routes and save yourself some fuel and cash when you do! 
  3. Get a friend involved. One of the fastest ways to enjoy exercise is when you have a friend involved in the whole thing. Go together on rock climbing days and play dodgeball. You could even go to dance and trampoline classes and have fun together. The point is that you can enjoy each other’s company and get fit, all while enjoying the exercise you’re doing. 
  4. Check out an obstacle course. Did you ever do fun obstacle courses when you were a kid? You should do them as an adult. You’ll move your body, have the best fun and you can get your friends involved. There are so many different ‘Total Wipeout’ style obstacle courses out there and you can really enjoy every single step when you do. You’ll workout, lose weight, tone up and have fun and that’s totally the point, right?
  5. Join a dance class. Whether you go for a Zumba lesson or a Salsa class, you can have so much fun doing a class that gets you moving to music that you wouldn't usually listen to. Dancing is a fun way to burn off calories, adrenaline and any worries from the day you’ve just had.
