I often wonder how bored people are when they head to the gym and follow their regular fitness routine. I can’t imagine what the majority are thinking! I get bored so easy and being a Trainer… it’s a good thing! I can change things up and keep having fun very easily plus loving fitness makes even more fun!
But, for people that are just chugging along with no true goals in mind or feel like they need to utilize every piece of equipment in a gym… I feel really bad for you!
First off, ask yourself how much of a change you have made since you started working out at a Gym. Have you really seen the results you wanted. Do you look around and see the same people doing the same thing every time they enter the gym? Boooooooooring!
I don’t mean to put a downer on fitness, I just want people to know that fitness should not be boring and it should be FUN! If you don’t think fitness is fun you need to look elsewhere! Think about joining a group program. If a group program is intimidating…. who cares… it goes away! You will laugh later on how scared you may have been before you joined that group program. This can be the best way to stay motivated and see results!
Think of fitness in a whole new light! Take a few days a week to do something new! Maybe you have in indoor facility that offers rock climbing or there may be a hiking group in your town that meets once a week. Fitness doesn’t have to be JUST in the gym. Sure, it’s a great place to meet with friends and it makes it easy to do something but it doesn’t have to be boring!
The best thing I ever did with my business is start more group programs. I work with professional athletes and that is amazing but my group programs have been inspiring and FUN! I have seen more results within my group programs …. more then private sessions for general fitness or fat loss. It’s the group motivation and interaction that really gets people to stick with their plan and reach their goals! The variety and friendship keeps them coming back and wanting more!
