9 Easy Ways to Never Get Bored With Your Workout

Picture this. You’re at the gym, doing the same exercises that you saw on Youtube 10 years ago. Does this sound like you? If so, we totally get it. It’s hard to stay motivated to workout when you are bored with your workout.

Why Can Working Out Be Boring?

Whether it is a physical limitation, or a psychological hindrance, enduring through a boring workout can be a drag.

It Can Be Repetitive

Following the exact same workout since high school is a recipe for boredom.

Exercising Can Be Lonely

It can be hard to stay motivated when working out alone with no accountability.

Exercise Can Be Silent

Working out at home often provides no external stimulation to get you in the mood to workout.

 

How to Never Get Bored With Your Fitness Routine (9 Tips)

 

1. Mix Up Your Workout

Change it up! Lift weights today, yoga tomorrow, and pilates the next! Mixing up your workout will not only prevent you from getting bored, but it will also challenge different muscle groups and help mitigate overuse injuries.

2. Make Your Workouts More Intense

Ramping up the intensity can also help fight boredom. With the added intensity, your adrenaline will pump, and your heart rate will rise, secreting those feel-good hormones and giving you a sense of accomplishment.

3. Workout With Your Friends

Grab a partner and make working out a social experience! Working out with friends can provide accountability, friendly participation, and help inspire you.

4. Stretch Before You Workout

Your warm-up can be just as important as your workout! Making sure to stretch with yoga or active mobility exercises prior to your workout prepares your mind & body for the activity, eliminating any fear of injury and strengthening your performance abilities.

5. Attend Group Fitness Classes

Group fitness classes, whether yoga, spinning, or HIIT are an excellent choice to stave off boredom. The instructor and class participants can help motivate you, while loud music can be a mood booster.

6. Set New Goals For Yourself Constantly

Challenging yourself to reach for higher goals can stimulate your mind and body to workout consistently. Don’t use a plateau as an excuse to abandon your routine. Just set new goals!

7. Try New Variations of Your Old Exercises

Adding challenging moves and variations to simple exercises can trigger your ability to push yourself beyond your original limits. Balancing on one leg or utilizing compound movements are great ways to keep your workout sweet and spicy!

8. Shorten Rest Periods

Keep your body moving! Resting by sitting or looking at your phone can make you relax just a little too much. Instead, shorten your rest periods and your mind and body won’t have time to wander and wonder what’s for dinner.

9. Take Out the Music (Or At Least Switch it Up)

The right music can be an essential component to a good workout. Music can elevate your mood and help you block out feelings of fatigue or boredom.

About Jason – Founder, Former Professional Basketball Player

It was my senior year of high school when I tore my ACL the first time. After five more knee surgeries over the subsequent years, that’s when I found yoga.

I don’t have to tell you the awkwardness of a 6’6”, 220 lb basketball player in a yoga studio, so it took me awhile to find my flow.

Especially carrying around my mom's flimsy, flower adorned mat that could not be washed!

So when my basketball career ended in 2019, after being fortunate enough to endure through the injuries long enough to play professional basketball overseas for 7 years, Yoga Strong was born.

I'm not your typical yoga lover, and we’re not your typical yoga mat…

and we like it that way.
