10 New Workout Routines That Don't Feel Like Work
Bored with your go-to exercises? Here are the newest routines that will inspire you to get out of your workout rut
Yeah, as much as we hate to admit it, we're not so psyched either. Just the idea of driving to the gym, changing, waiting in line for the elliptical, finally getting on the elliptical, doing crunches, showering … there's a reason they call it working out. Maybe that's why so many of us throw in the towel and watch the numbers on the scale climb. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that only 18.8 percent of us meet the physical activity guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening physical activity.
Skip ahead to see the 10 new workouts that don't feel like work.
"People are used to thinking of exercise as something that has to fit into certain parameters: has to be in a gym, or you have to be wearing athletic clothing," says Maria Brilaki, founder of Fitnessreloaded.com, a fitness habits website. "All those rules burden exercise and limit creativity. They make working out so complicated!"
While that may be true, the good news is that workouts don't have to be like this. In fact, they can actually be easy and enjoyable. The proof is in these 10 new workouts -- routines that we promise are so completely different from what you've been doing in the gym, you won't even realize you're actually blasting calories, improving your strength, melting unwanted fat, and getting healthier all around.
You heard us: this is fitness that's fun.
