Whether you are looking to improve your overall health, mental health, learn some new skills, or just want to take your work out to the next level, there are many ways to improve your fitness routine. And after being holed up in your house thanks to COVID-19, there is no better time than now.
No matter what type of workout you do—whether group class or individual work out—you should be sweating, you should be tired, you should do it safely and you should really push yourself to see results.
Here are a few easy ways to punch up your exercise routine to improve your mental health.
MAKE SURE YOUR EXERCISE IS QUALITY:
For those who might have to fit in a gym session in between your work day, you know that quality is key if you want results. You simply cannot just check off the box that you went to the gym.
Carlsbad Kickboxing Club, for example, recently created a new power boxing bag class that combines a 30-minute intense sweat session, with cardio boxing. Not only does it make you feel alive after being cooped up for so long, but it helps you to continue keeping your distance if that is your current safety level. Group classes like this are convenient, fun, high energy, and guaranteed to burn maximum calories.
MAKE IT A ROUTINE, HAVE A PLAN:
The hardest part in starting a work out routine is actually the “getting started” part. But once you do, taking it to the next level is the hard part. That means sticking to it even when busy schedules might get in the way.
The most important part is to ditch the all-or-nothing attitude and realize that you don’t have to force yourself into hating the experience. A little exercise is better than no exercise.
What is most important is to stay motivated, stay consistent, find a workout that is flexible for you and over time, fitness part of your daily routine and the physical (and mental) payoff will come.
Above all, listening to your body, stay motivated and choose fitness exercises that make you feel happy and confident.
