Everyone loves having a healthy and happy body, but most people dread the idea of going to the gym. The machines, the instructor screaming ‘five more crunches’ and having supremely fit people around, this is a scene straight from some people’s nightmares.
If you fall in that category where you have a bitter sweet relationship with the gym, here are 5 alternative ways to stay fit while avoiding the gym and having fun!
1. Go Dancing
Join a Salsa dance class or book a Zumba session. It doesn’t matter if you can’t dance, it only matters that you keep bouncing for the entire session. If you’re too shy to go out, there are tons of cardio dance workouts available online that you can follow while burning those calories at home!
2. Pick a Sport
Be it squash or badminton or classic football or swimming or cricket. Pick any sports you like and keep practising. It’ll be amazing for your mind and body and boring gym sessions will be history!
3. Kick Boxing
Book sessions at the studio or learn it online. Kick Boxing is a great way to work out and it helps with stress and mobility.
4. Run A Marathon
Sometimes working out without any real short term goal can be less exciting. A great way to deal with this is to sign up for a marathon! Preparing for it will keep you fit and finishing the marathon will leave you with a sense of accomplishment.
Yoga will cleanse your mind, body and soul. It’s a journey that will leave you happy and calm and more present in your reality while giving you the fit body and keeping you healthy.
