August’s goal: Switch up your workouts!
We’re 2/3 of the way through the year — chances are, your workout needs a refresh!
Now is a great time to start something new. Many fitness classes enroll for the fall season around this time. You could try a class for something you’ve always wanted to try, like kickboxing, spinning, Zumba, or pilates. Check with your gym, community center, or local YMCA to see their offerings. It’s not a bad idea to check Groupon for good exercise class deals, either!
What are all those weight machines you never try at the gym? If you’ve been avoiding them because you don’t know how to use them, try to identify them and look up how to videos online, or ask someone at your gym to show you how to use them. Try a new machine every time you visit the gym this month. No gym membership? Look up some good dumbbell exercises on YouTube!
Is your workout routine basically nonexistent? Get into shape with a beginner program like Couch to 5k (available as an app!) or the 30 Day Shred.
