7/30/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 31. July 2012 08:00

Hi.  It's great to have a workout routine and a regular place for you to exercise  (gym, home, or a class facility), but you need to have some diversity in your program to keep challenging your muscles, and make sure you don't get bored (which usually leads to people dropping their routine of working out and being fit).

Some ideas range from fun, and funny, inexpensive to pricey.  Try adding some diversity with swimming (an incredible challenge)- laps or treading water in the deep end.  Biking, jumping rope (cheap, portable and will surely humble anyone; boxers have very little body fat don't they?) and really digressing to childhood memories, try hula hooping.  It seemed so easy as a child...it's a bigger challenge now!  A lot of people get a kick out of belly dancing classes or salsa aerobicsRock climbing or trail hiking is a cardio push if its available in your area.   If your looking for a bonding weekend with a friend or a serious kickoff to a new training program, try a fitness camp.  You can access idea's off the internet, and prices range from $300- $2500 and up, for the weekend.
